All products on this page have been selected by our editorial team, however we may make commission on some products.

Chanel Les Beiges Bronzing Cream, £43

“A cult product for good reason, this will always have a place in my beauty bag. I remember hesitating over buying it at first – everyone was using it, and I assumed it was just hype. Once I tried it though, I totally got it. I’ve been using it for a year now and couldn’t recommend it more. It’s ideal when you want that super-natural, sun-kissed effect. I always take it on holiday to warm up my skin and give me better glow, too.” Available at

Chanel Rouge Coco Lipstick in Marthe, £31

“Finding a red lipstick that suits you isn’t an easy task. This is by far my favourite. It’s a really sexy rich red – you can’t beat it on a night out.” Available at

Byredo Bibliothèque Eau De Parfum, £122

“This and Loewe’s Fragrance in Oregano are two of my all-time favourites. Byredo’s Bibliothèque holds a special place in my heart – I always wear it on a special night out.” Available at

Charlotte Tilbury Full Fat Lashes Mascara, £23

“Mascaras don’t get much better than this. It’s great for building up definition for the evening, but you can use it lightly for an everyday look if you prefer. The formula really goes the distance with zero flaking – it’s the best.” Available at

Code8 Lipstick in Miss Saigon, £27

“I love this neutral shade. The chunky crayon makes it quite versatile as well – I often scribble it on my cheeks and eyes." Available at

Charlotte Tilbury Brow Cheat Pencil, £22

“There are a lot of Charlotte Tilbury products I love, but this Brow Pencil is a standout. I remember being on a shoot and the make-up artist used this – I immediately asked her what it was because I was so happy with the result. I love a natural finish and this – combined with the Legendary Brows product – is a match made in heaven. You could get away with just using the pencil for everyday – but the gel gives everything bit more depth.” Available at

Elemis Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm, £44

“Is there anyone who doesn’t love this balm? Without fail, it’s the best at removing make-up – it just melts everything away seamlessly and never causes irritation. It always leaves my skin so soft and supple – I’ll never be without it.” Available at

Glossier Cloud Paint in Dusk, £15

“This is my favourite blusher of all time. I love products that can be used in multiple ways, and this is a prime example. Whenever I have product left over, I’ll use a little on my eyelids to warm everything up. It was my first Glossier purchase and is one I continue to make on repeat.” Available at

Kérastase Elixir Ultime Hair Oil, £33.90

“My hair is important to me, and I love using oils that nourish it and give it a glossy sheen. I bought this after my hairdresser used it to finish off my blow-dry. I fell in love with the soft gloss and beautiful scent. It’s really lightweight.” Available at

Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer, £27

“I like to switch up my base make-up depending on the event, but I was recently introduced to this oe from Kevyn Aucoin and haven’t looked back since. It’s ideal if you want slightly heavier coverage, but still want your skin to breathe. The formula goes a very long way, so it has great price per wear.”  Available at

OUAI Matte Pomade, £16 

“Anyone who knows me will know I love a slicked back bun. Trust me when I say this is the best product to achieve the look. A lightweight balm, it smooths everything back into place with zero greasy residue. The scent is amazing, too.” Available at

Palomino Comb, £19.99

“This works hand-in-hand with my Ouai Pomade for a seamless finish. I couldn’t live without it and I love that it’s made by a small, female-founded business. I’ll use it when my hair is wet and to comb through masks and balms to get rid of knots and tangles. It’s a true staple in my bathroom.” Available at

Rodial Vitamin C SPF30 Moisturiser, £65

“Rodial has so many classic products, but it’s this Vitamin C SPF30 Moisturiser that’s on constant rotation in my beauty bag. It offers great hydration, as well as protection, while giving skin a soft, glossy glow at the same time.” 

Available at

Sienna X The Facial Polish, £33

“Sienna X’s Facial Polish is one of those products you’ve probably never heard of, but you instantly fall in love with. It’s a brilliant, quick – and gentle – exfoliator that completely overhauls my complexion when it’s feeling dry or damaged. It brings back radiance and glow in minutes – a great, last-minute pick-me-up.”  Available at

YSL Touche Éclat Blur Primer, £27.20

“I’ve been using this juicy primer for years. It really does feel like it’s ‘blurring’ your skin and the texture is beautiful – as is the soft finish. There’s never any piling either, when you apply products on top.” Available at

Sunday Riley Good Genes, £85

“Sunday Riley is one of my favourite skincare brands – everything it sells just works for me. What stands out most is Good Genes. Providing you can tolerate glycolic acid, you’ll love how it works immediately to refine, tone and brighten the skin.” Available at

Victoria Beckham Lid Lustre in Tea Rose, £30

“There’s so much eye make-up out there to choose from, but this Lid Lustre is beautiful for a night out. It feels so luxe and the formula is really easy to build up for something more dramatic. Great for days when you’re on the go and need to switch up your look.” Available at
