Cheryl Cole Covers Marie Claire UK May 2012 Issue.

Cheryl looks amazing! Such a beautiful girl and I love all the dresses.

Britain’s sweetheart Cheryl Cole is the 2012 May cover girl for Marie Claire UK and the diva opens up to the magazine about her weight, her love for shoes, on being much more normal than she’s portrayed in tabloids.

Cheryl Cole, who is a slim size 8, says that she does work out but doesn’t follow a diet , instead she tries to make healthy choices. She reveals to Marie Claire that she too suffers from weight fluctuations, but she’s found the perfect trick to help er feel and look comfy regardless if she’s packed a few pounds or shed them by keeping different size jeans in her wardrobe. She tells Marie Claire UK that:

“I’m like any other woman, my weight fluctuates. I have a pair of jeans one size bigger than the other just in case that week I’m a little bit heavier. I work out and try to make healthy choices.”

Ms. Cole, who revealed that she was advised to lose weight back in 2002 after winning the ITV talent shop Popstars: The Rivals, about the same time that she found fame with Girls Aloud, says she avoids dieting ‘like a plague’. She reveals that:

“I try to avoid them like the plague. That can get you into a vicious circle. I did when I was younger. When I first got in the band I remember the first mean story I read where newspapers called us “Pork Stars” – because the show was called Pop Stars: The Rivals. We were all fat… we were all fat! Not fat, chubby. And Louis Walsh had come out publicly and said, ‘They’re all fat. They all need to lose weight.’ And the record label sent us all to have training.”

However, her battle with malaria, which she contacted while on vacation in Tanzania in 2010, and which almost took her life, helped Cheryl switch her priorities. To get back on track after slimming down to a size 6 while battling the disease, Cheryl says she ‘ate everything’ and that ‘it’s now less about work, work, work and more about making time to chill and be with my friends and family’.

Cheryl Cole seems to have discovered her love for shoes for quiet some time and since then developed an addiction. The singer also ventured into the shoe design industry and the line featuring her signature was quite a success. She tells Marie Claire about her shoe addiction that:

“It’s definitely got worse over the years, my shoe thing. Just worse and worse and worse. I should really seek a little bit of therapy. Me doing my own shoe range is quite cathartic.”

Although she’s made headlines with variosu stories regarding her life, Cheryl states that she has quite a normal lifestyle, much different than most people think. She tells the magazine that:

“I’m from such a normal family and background. I’m grateful for that; otherwise it could send you crazy… People have this crazy idea of my life.”

When it comes to regrets, the 28 year old singer says that life is too short to have regrets. Although she’s already gone through a divorce, Cheryl says that she tries to take things as they are.

“Life’s too short to have regrets. Mistakes are life. I don’t live like that. I don’t have that mentality. I think that things are sent to you so you learn and grow. If you regret them, you would never be the person that you are.”

Mally Roncal is sharing the love again! Throughout her career, she has been a makeup artist to celebrities from Beyoncé to Jennifer Lopez and from Mariah Carey to Celine Dion. She’s known for flawless, glowing skin, which instantly makes you look like you’ve had 8-hours of sleep! Here are Mally’s easy and quick steps for getting a radiant, well-rested look:

Step 1: First, start with a good moisturizer to smooth over any dry or flaky spots.
Step 2: Next, apply my Perfect Prep Poreless Primer to fill in your pores and fine lines, creating an invisible barrier between your skin and your makeup.
Step 3: Apply a creamy concealer underneath your eyes, and then dab on any blemishes. Even out your complexion with my Ultimate Performance Foundation and a powder brush to get that diffused, airbrushed look.
Step 4: Using a highlighter, apply to the brow bone, cheek bones, temples and down the center of your nose; swirl a universally flattering pinky-peach blush onto the apples of the cheeks.
Step 5: Use my Volumizing Mascara and with the wand, apply inwards for a starburst effect that instantly opens up eyes.
Step 6: Finish by using my Lightwand Eye Brightener. Take the pencil end and draw a sideways “v” in the inner corner of your eyes. If you want to take it to the next level, take the spring-loaded powder dabber on the other end, and apply it on top of the pencil!
