Anyone who is anyone in the music industry is set to gather tonight for The Brit Awards, which means there’s currently plenty of beauty prep going on behind the scenes. Leading the stars skin prepping for the red carpet is singer and X Factor success story Ella Henderson.

Ella, who placed sixth in the singing competition in 2012, is set to perform tonight with Becky Hill, so she’s obviously keen to look glowing in front of the cameras and the celeb-packed audience. To get a fresh, smooth complexion before she has her make-up applied, Ella is indulging in some serious skin prep with the help of 111 Skin.

The luxury brand is loved by the likes of Victoria Beckham, Bella Hadid and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, so the Crazy What Love Can Do singer is in safe hands with these red carpet-ready products.

Ella is choosing to prep her under-eyes with £14 eye masks loved by Victoria Beckham

First up, Ella targets her under-eyes with 111 Skin’s Celestial Black Diamond Eye Masks, £14 here for two. The 27 year old just shared a clip of herself on her Instagram Stories wearing these while travelling in the back of a car. These luxurious patches are a top choice for many celebrities before red carpet appearances because they promise to quickly tighten, firm and moisturise the under-eye area, meaning the chances of their concealer creasing during the night are greatly reduced.

Ella is also super-charging the results of the masks by using a jade roller at the same time. In a subsequent Story clip, she goes over the masks with the roller, helping the ingredients to sink into the skin.

Ella skin preps with 111 Skin's Cryo De-Puffing Facial Mask

Next up in the star’s skin prep routine comes a full face mask. Again, she turns to 111 Skin, opting for the brand’s Cryo De-Puffing Facial Mask, £20 here. This luxury face mask takes inspiration from the science behind cryotherapy – a treatment that involves the use of freezing or near-freezing temperatures to reduce inflammation. We imagine the singer is using the mask to take away any redness from her complexion and to create a smooth base before she has her foundation applied.

Ella is currently having her hair and make-up done by Lisa Laudat, so it seems she’s entered phase two of the glam process.

We’ll keep an eye out for further beauty prep updates from behind the scenes of the Brits!
