Screen legend Joan Collins has launched her own make-up collection.

The famously glamorous Dynasty star was approached by businessman George Hammer, the man behind the exclusive Urban Retreat spas, to start her own line.

She has worked closely with his team to come up with make-up, lipsticks, and nail polishes under the banner of her Timeless Beauty range, which will hit stores in the U.K. next month (June14).

Explaining why it took her until her 81st year to come up with a collection, she tells Hello! magazine, "I know, and I really thought that it would be (sooner). But I'm not a 'go-getter': I don't call people up and say, 'I want to do a make-up line.' It's not my style.

"(When I met George) he said to me, 'Joan, you have great skin, would you be interested in doing a line of make-up and skincare?' I said, 'Yes, I know I look good,' - and I look good, not just good for my age."
