NU Lip & Cheek Balmy Tint, £21 | Yves Saint Laurent

Recommended by: Jessica Kell 

I love using this in both my personal and professional kits. There are a lot of lip and cheek products on the market, but this one is great because it contains hyaluronic acid and shea butter, which means it blends beautifully into the skin. Perfect if you want a glowy, healthy finish.

Pot Rouge For Lips & Cheeks, £30 | Bobbi Brown

Recommended by: Zara Findlay

This is one of my all-time favourite products. I rate it so highly because it has the most beautiful creamy texture. All you have to do is swipe it on your cheeks and lips for that fresh and healthy look. If you have two or more colours, try mixing them together to create your own bespoke shade.

Colour Case Cosmetic Paint Palette The Essentials, £24.50 (was £35) | Made By Mitchell

Recommended by: Levi-Jade Taylor

I love this palette because you can mix any custom colour with it – so it’s perfect for anyone keen to experiment. Plus, the formula lasts all day. There's another version called 'Electrics' which is better if you want to go all out. You can even mix the colours with a moisturiser to create a cream contour, blush or lipstick.

Revealer Concealer, £25 | Kosas

Recommended by: Ashley Dayes

I love a multi-tasking concealer! This one is creamy enough for the under-eyes but still gives you enough coverage to double up as a foundation when you’re in a rush and just want one product to do it all. It will brighten and even out your complexion while being the perfect handbag hero for touch-ups throughout the day. Just try to find your correct shade – I’m currently using number three.

Multi Stick, £36 | Ilia

Recommended by: Cat Parnell 

I have about ten of these in my kit, so it’s safe to say I’m obsessed. The balmy texture is so easy to apply and the formula makes your skin look so hydrated and glowy. My favourite thing about it is how easy it is to create custom shades. Let’s say you want a nude/pink blush but the one you have is a little too pink. You can mix it with one of the highlighter shades and blend that together to change the overall tone. Press it onto your cheeks and lips, and you’re good to go. It’s also a travel-friendly size, which is great. I like mixing ‘Stella by starlight’ – a lovely light rose gold with ‘Dreamer’, a gorgeous terracotta that makes the eyes look so bright and awake.

Hydrating Boost Tonic Mist, £50 | QMS Medicosmetics

Recommended by: Zoë Taylor 

I use this product in so many ways. First, as an essence after cleansing and before applying my serum. Next, as a fine mist over make-up to set it. Plus, you can use it to boost hydration. I just spritz it on throughout the day, over make-up or skincare – it can get through anything. Finally, a couple of pumps over the décolletage and legs give your skin the perfect glow – I do that a lot on set.

The Best Eyeshadow, £24 | Jones Road Beauty

Recommended by: Sophie Tilley 

There are so many ways to use this product. First, you can contour, sculpt and define your cheekbones; you can also slimline your nose and snatch your jawline. Alternatively, you can create a dramatic eye look by taking a fluffy eyeshadow brush and sweeping it back and forth through the socket bone. You can even use it on the lips to create a 'pouty' look or to lift your brows by applying some of the matte brown shade to your brow hairs and skin. Finally, dampen a small liner brush, dip it into the pigment and run it along the upper lash line for an instant but natural looking wing.
