For most women, the end of maternity leave means a scrabble to find anything suitable to wear and at least a week worrying she's got terminal baby brain and will never, ever remember how to do her job again.

ForCherylthough? No such issues. Up she pops, as yummy mummy as can be, strutting along a catwalk on the Champs Elysees atParis Fashion Week. Quite a return to the day job of, well, being Cheryl: beauty icon, hair inspo and now makeup creator and curator.

She's kept a low profile since she andLiam Paynewelcomed their son Bear in March, but this week she's back to business with the launch of her first-ever cosmetics collection for L'Oreal.

Here's what she's told us about getting back to work, and life as a glam new mum...

Cheryl says this lip shade is her favourite, as it's the one she created in the labs. 'I'd wear the burgundy collection to make more of a statement or if I wanted to grunge up the look,' she says.

Cheryl says: 'I would wear the peach look if I was wearing a colourful outfit to give a more neutral look on the lips.'

Cheryl says: 'Greige is more like a nude with grey tones so if I wanted a more nude lip with a heavier eye I'd choose this.'

What are your go-to make-up products when you're pushed for time?

A bit of bronzer, a bit of L'Oreal Paris Telescopic mascara and the peach lip kit from my collection.

Do you have any top skincare tips?

Always take your make-up off and moisturise before bed. It's the quality of your skin that is the most important base to ensure your make-up looks the nicest it can be.

Do you have any 'can't live without' products?

Fish oil capsules, because if you're eating right it will show in your skin.

What is the best beauty tip anyone has ever given you?

Pluck your eyebrows when you've just got out of the shower or bath. Your pores are openso it's much easier.

Which make up look is your favourite at the moment and why?

Definitely the natural look because I haven't had time to focus on creating looks with being a new mam, but when I go out I like to create more of a look whether that's a lip look or an eye look.

How did you decide which lip shade you wanted to create for your L'Oreal collection?

I was obsessed with a dark lip after wearing it to a Vogue 10 year dinner at the end of last year so I wanted to create something similar but warmer.

For someone who's never used a lip kit what advice do you have for application and for choosing the right shade?

Firstly use the liner to draw along the outside the lip line, making sure to not draw over, so just on the very edge. Then apply the lip paint right up to the liner. Just choose the shade for what you want to wear. It doesn't matter - if it works for you, do it. There are no rules, it's preference.

What is your favourite product from the collection?

The burgundy lip paint, especially as it's coming into autumn/winter.

How has your make-up and beauty regime changed since having Bear?

Since becoming a mam, my beauty regime has actually gone out of the window. Taking care of a baby 24/7 means make-up is just not practical. It's just been recently that I've had time to start applying make-up again and it's been lovely actually. I went out for dinner a few weeks ago and it was strange to see myself made up again but lovely at the same time.

Top beauty tips for new mums?

You don't always get time to moisturise so my top tip for new mums would be put bath oil in the bath so you don't have to worry about moisturising. I also use coconut oil from head to toe, literally you can eat, put it on your hair and your body -- its brilliant stuff.
