Dancing star Kristina Rihanoff always looks immaculately made up whenever she appears on the hugely popular Saturday night entertainment show Strictly Come Dancing.
So it was no surprise then to learn that she has launched her very own make-up collection, courtesy of the big beauty brand MeMeMe Cosmetics. What you may not know however, is that this is no vanity project for Kristina, who is affectionately known as the ‘stunner from Siberia’, as she is actually a trained make-up artist in her own right, and does her own make-up for all other appearances apart from Strictly.
So with this in mind, Kristina has ensured that her collection includes everything a girl needs for a complete glamour look, ideal for a Saturday night out, and features Goddess Eyes Quad Eyeshadow, Bronze Shimmer Stack, Amorous Long Lasting Nail Gloss, Beat the Blues Highlighter in Oyster Gold and Light Me Up Lipgloss in Shimmer. The Kristina Rihanoff Essentials Collection costs £26 and is now available from the MeMeMe website, but hurry, as it is only a limited edition.
Kristina says about her new collection: “Ever since I first discovered the MeMeMe range I’ve been a huge fan.
I love their colours and innovative beauty launches each season and I really love the multipurpose design that goes into each product – perfect for busy women on the go.”
She adds, “Being empowered and feeling great through the application of make-up is something that’s true to my heart and I feel we have created a collection of handbag essentials suitable for any lady looking for a bit of glitz and glam in their lives this party season.”
This is Kristina’s first make-up campaign but the Strictly glamour puss has fronted a lingerie shoot for underwear specialists La Senza and been involved in the breast awareness campaign for Coppafeel!.
Kristina has recently split with her long term partner, and ex Strictly Come Dancing star Joe Calzaghe, and is now teamed up with British Bond actor Colin Salmon. Asked how training was going she said: “It has been interesting, it is going well but of course he is a beginner.
He is a wonderful person, he is working hard and he is a true English gentleman,” adding, “I want him to do well.” To keep her enviable figure, Kristina not only loves to dance but also indulges in a little yoga.
She said: “Obviously with all the dancing I keep very fit but in my free time I do Bikram yoga, I love it. It is difficult but it is such a great feeling. When you come out you feel like you’re flying and it is great for concentration.”
