“If you know anyone going to America anytime soon, get them to pick up one of these – the clever shape fits perfectly on the contours of the face for flawless makeup application.” – Amanda Harrington, make-up artist

“Avène is actually a ‘skin hospital’ offered on France’s equivalent of the NHS for patients suffering from psoriasis and eczema. This heavy, white cream preps and feeds the skin and makes for the perfect make-up base.” – Kate Kerr, clinical facialist

“You’ll be hard-pushed to find a make-up artist who doesn’t use this make-up removing, skin-brightening toning water. Whenever I go to France I stock up, as it’s infinitely cheaper.” – Lillie Russo, make-up artist

“This cult vitamin C serum is a Sephora bestseller for a reason – it guarantees smoother, brighter results within days.” – Millie Kendall, Co-Founder of BeautyMART

“Forget sheet masks – pod masks are the latest thing to come out of the Korean beauty world. If you can find these, buy as many as you can as they really are the best.” – Margaret Mitchell, Buying Director at Space NK

“This French pharmacy favourite is an oil-free, dermatologically-tested treatment for acne and blemish-prone skin that makes light work of blackheads thanks to a hefty dose of salicylic acid.” – Kate Kerr, clinical facialist

“These eye drops are my absolute all-time favourite. I discovered them over ten years ago on a shoot in Italy. The bright yellow colour looks a bit scary but they flush out your eyes, make the whites whiter and really bring out the colour of your iris." – Ruby Hammer, make-up artist
