L'Oreal's Infallible Longwear concealer acts like a high end concealer but for the budget price of £9.99. It blends easily, gives full coverage and doesn't look cakey. The large doe foot applicator makes it easy to apply and you won't need to use powder after (unless you are quite oily) as it sets to a matte finish. This is...

Another great product from The Ordinary. This 10% Lactic Acid serum exfoliates cells on the surface of the skin by breaking down the material that holds skin cells together. It also holds water in the skin and helps to lighten discolourations. You apply this at night after cleansing and I noticed a difference in my skin the day...

Applying self tan to the face can sometimes result in your face looking just a little too tan the next day. If that's the case for you, then these sun drops from Tropic Skincare are very easy to use and give a subtle glow with a gradual build-up. You simply apply a few drops to your morning or...

If you like a smokey eye but find eyeshadow application tricky then these Colour Chameleon pencils from Charlotte Tilbury £19 could be the answer. It's a chunky pencil which is smooth, pigmented and easy to use. You can apply it all over the lid and blend with a brush or your finger for an eyeshadow look, or...

I've tried many micellar waters to remove my makeup (before cleansing face with a balm) but I always come back to my favourite - Bioderma. It cleans away eye makeup, even waterproof mascara, without irritating they eyes and I think this is the most important thing for a makeup remover. There are more budget friendly eye makeup removers out...

A product to help anti ageing that I have been using for 10+ years is a silk pillowcase. Silk pillowcases let skin retain its natural moisture while you sleep, keeping it soft, supple and helping reduce fine lines and wrinkles. It also helps keep your hair healthy by not sucking out the natural moisture and therefore stops the dreaded...

This matte bronzer by Benefit named Hoola Lite has made an excellent addition to my makeup kit for work. It's perfect for those who are pale and struggle to find a bronzer that doesn't look orange on the skin. It's a smooth formulation that doesn't go patchy and can be used on clean skin without foundation. You can...

This sunscreen is recommended by Scott Barnes, JLo's makeup artist, and he uses it on her when they film outdoors to protect against the sun and create a lovely sheen on the skin. Neutrogena is a brand that always brings out solid, reliable products and their spray Ultra Sheer Body Mist 100+ is perfect for those who don't...

The Ordinary is one of my favourite skincare brands. Their products are super inexpensive and they thoroughly work. Their Peeling Solution £6.25 is not for the faint hearted but if you want a mask that strips away the dead skin cells to reveal glowing skin then this mask is for you. You apply for 10 minutes - it looks scary...
