Beauty: Make me a star; Pippa wants to look like Sandy from Grease and luckily M's Pink Ladies are here to help. All together now: `You're the one that I want...'.

Byline: Text by Tricia Welch and Amanda Bradbury.

Pippa Bartholomew, 46, is hopelessly devoted to the style of Grease. `I loved Olivia Newton-John's look 20 years ago in that movie and I still think she looks fab now,' she told us. Celebrity hairdresser Richard Ward explained that Livvy wears her hair in a long, softly layered style these days and advised Pippa to grow out her shortish top layers to create a swingier feel. He then lopped three inches from the length, cutting the hair to encourage the ends to kick out. To finish, Pippa just needs to apply a little smoothing balm before blow-drying. Colour-wise, expert Adam Russell agreed Pippa would suit Olivia's pale honey-blonde tone so used two types of pre-lightener to lift out Pippa's strawberry red shade which created a soft, creamier effect, then applied a clear gloss on top to boost shine. Next, to get the glow she wants, make-up artist Clare explained that the essence of Olivia's look is fresh skin with a touch of dewy shine on the apples of her cheeks and soft but sexy eyes. `A smooth, creamy skin tone is essential,' says Clare, `so I've used an all-in-one powder foundation, swirling a pinky blush over the apples of the cheeks with a glossy highlighter on top.' The eyes are sexier, but still subtle, with soft, smoky grey over the lid and socket, a lick of black liquid eyeliner to accent the top lashline and a smudge of dark grey kohl under lower lashes - this looks softer and more flattering than black kohl if you're over 40 and need to avoid harsh definition. Finally, lips are shaded using a creamy flesh-coloured lip pencil, with a touch of clear gloss on top.
