Mi FALSE, fake tan and full coverage foundation helped Liberty Poole stick a lot.
But Love Island star insists that charm has always been a part of her personality and that she won’t change because of a few jokes.
Liberty, 22 years old, person dropped from ITV’s Dancing On Ice two weeks ago After the acrobatics, Jo’s mother said that when she was a young girl, she introduced her to makeup lessons.
She said: “I was really close to my mother and she taught me a lot of things – like how to be sexy. Since the age of 12, I have been wearing makeup and always wearing high heels.
“My mom and I are pretty small (5ft 6in), so I think that’s why it started.”
Liberty, 5ft 2in, continued: “I usually wear heels everywhere. I even wear heels to the grocery store in the supermarket just so I can get the milk on the top shelf.”
The Nando .’s former waitress was once criticized for liking heavy makeup but said: “When people ask, ‘Why do you wear so much makeup?’ I said to them, ‘Do you question an emoji with thick black eyeliner?’
“You would never question an emoji because that’s what they choose to wear and do. So why ask me? It’s part of who I am, it’s part of my personality, my confidence and my personality – it’s the same thing.
“I like to look good, but I also like more natural. But as soon as I’m sexy, people say, ‘Oh, she’s wearing too much makeup’, but when I’m more natural, I also get negative comments. I just can’t win.
“I’m a scatterbrain, but I’m also smart – people will judge you if you wear too much makeup.
“The funny thing is that even though everyone thinks I’m heavy, it only took me 20 minutes to do it.
“But I usually have a professional do it – and those times I have no control over how much I’m wearing. People notice the smallest changes. I’m lucky I have pretty tough skin. ”
Liberty shot to fame last year in the seventh series of Love Island. She dumping of boyfriend Jake Cornish mansion just two weeks before the final gave the star an army of female fans.
After breaking out, Liberty gained more than 1.5 million followers and achieved a Number of lucrative fashion and beauty dealswith the star who is expected to become a millionaire this year.
Liberty says her recent participation in Dancing On Ice made her childhood dream come true.
“The whole thing is surreal,” she said. I’ve been watching the show since I was a kid with my mom. When I trained in ITV I’m at the Bovingdon studio, “How did I get here?”
While on the show, Liberty talked about how she wanted to embrace her curves. She said: ‘I will never be one of those six pack girls but I’m enjoying it. I’ve got a better fit but I’m still pretty curvy. Just own it. ”
Her mother flew back to the UK from her home in Abu Dhabi to support Liberty on the show.
She said: “I have a very female family and I grew up with only my mother, so I have always had a lot of respect for women.
“It taught me to never shy away from complimenting other women. Women can be pretty lame or jealous and unnecessary – girls’ strength is so important, it’s important that we support each other. I definitely support women’s empowerment.”
Liberty’s love for false eyelashes, false tans and a dazzling wardrobe has landed the star partnership with lingerie chain Boux AvenueOnline retailer In The Style and beauty brand Skinny Tan.
She’s definitely come a long way since she accidentally turned herself green from a fake tan failure.
Liberty said: “I wore this for a shift at Nando’s. It was before a night out, so I put it underneath my foundation.
“As the shift continued, I ended up going green because the tan had a bit of green in it. People say I look like Fiona from Shrek.”
Five months ago, she announced her fourth time six-figure deal with Lola’s Lashes.
She said: “I make sure the brands I work with have that ‘confident’ trait that I love. The partnership with the lashes is perfect as I’ve been wearing them since I was 15 years old. I can’t live without them – they make me feel complete.
“However, I still broke my lashes and put on makeup during the lockup period. I feel confident with or without, which I encourage everyone to feel the same way.”
Liberty admits her confidence can be shaken when trolls target the social network. “It can be hard to find nasty comments in your inbox,” she says. I can see a negative comment and they’ll be like, ‘Lib, I love you but this is not okay in my opinion’ – it’s a negative comment but in a good way .
“I respect that, because everyone has an opinion. But that’s when people are unnecessarily mean. . .
“I used to care too much about people’s opinions. As long as you know who you are and what you stand for, who gives the way on that? ”
Appears on Love Island is a double-edged sword that captures both positive and negative opinions.
As for Liberty, the decision to sever ties with Jake and dropped out of the show – amid fears she would be “obsessed” by the woman – saw a flurry of messages seeking advice from both men and women.
She said: “It’s been great to get responses that say I’m their inspiration. I’ve had a couple of guys come up to me and say, ‘I respect what you did, it made me realize a few things’.
“A guy comes up to me and says, ‘You gave me the strength to go home to meet my parents,’ while a woman would say, ‘You’re such a good ambassador for women’. That is very important to me. I always want to use my platform for good.”
“Not much happens in love life,” she said. I am so focused on myself that I don’t want any distractions.”
