The 27-year-old actress is an avid user of sites such as Instagram and Twitter, and opened up about her love of contacting her fans through them during an interview with Gritty Pretty Magazine.

One of the main reasons Lily enjoys getting in touch with her fans is to reassure them that despite being a successful Hollywood actress, she still has insecurities like anyone else.

"I experience the same things that they (girls) do and face the same insecurities," she said. "Social media has allowed me to communicate with girls all over the world. It's always been really important to me that they know I experience the same things that they do and face the same insecurities.

"It's such a powerful tool to get to use in order to have conversations and reassure them that they're never alone in their struggles."

Lily, the daughter of former Genesis rocker Phil Collins, is known for her striking appearance, including her strong eyebrows and English Rose complexion.

She is also an ambassador for beauty company Lancome, and while she prefers a classic beauty look when it's left up to her, she also enjoys seeing her make-up artists' new ideas.

"I love a classic cat eye and a bold lip. But I really love seeing what new looks my makeup artists come up with every time I go to an event,” she smiled.

For her Gritty Pretty shoot, Lily went for a classic red lip and smoky eye, which highlighted her stunning features, and opted for a black suit, ensuring the focus was entirely on her natural beauty.
