Lily James 'struggles' with colour coordinating

Lily James has "struggled" with colour coordinating her outfits.

The 27-year-old actress has described her style as "effortless and in-flux", although she has revealed she has yet to grasp the concept of matching the colours in her clothes with her accessories and finds it difficult to pair items together and relies on her personal stylist Rebecca Corbin-Murray for fashion tips.

She told Metro newspaper: "I'd describe my style as effortless and in-flux. I'm still discovering what I like.

"I think I have got better but I really struggle with simple colour coordination. I send her [Rebecca] a little WhatsApp messages asking; 'Is this a disaster?'"

And the 'Cinderella' star has revealed she used to shop in high street brands but is now wearing garments from designer brands, which has opened a "whole new world of fashion" up to her.

She explained: "Suddenly I have all these designers who want to work with me and it's opened up a whole new world of fashion. It's mind blowing. You see these dresses and they're just ... I'd never seen fashion like that. I always just got clothes from the high street."

Meanwhile, Lily - who has been announced as the face of the British fashion house Burberry's brand ambassador, which sees her front the campaign for their latest fragrance My Burberry Black - has revealed her beauty routine is fairly simple because she uses minimal cosmetic products in her daily regime, although she cannot live without her Burberry Face Contour Pen which gives her "magic" cheekbones.

Speaking about her make-up essentials, she said: ""Burt's Bees lip balm. I like them when they smell minty. Any mascara works. I just layer it on. Clarins Beauty Flash Balm is a moisturiser and I don't need foundation. Burberry Face Contour Pen, I don't have cheekbones and this gives you magic ones.

"I cleanse tone and moisturise. I always do. Somehow I always get rid of my make-up at night."
