Utter Godsend! Although it only launched this year as part of the Benefit Brow collection, this has fast become a makeup bag essential and definitely worth the investment. The clear gel is great for setting your eyebrows after pencilling, or even for neatening up your brows alone. This product actually managed to keep my eyebrows intact after a full day of water sports and it doesn't flake! So yes, this is definitely worth a purchase.

2). YSL Kiss & Blush - £29.00

This blush right here is amazing. The creamy consistency blends really well on the skin without looking patchy, and also gives you a real radiant finish. It can also double up as lip tint, so although a little pricey, it's definitely a makeup bag winner. YSL Kiss & Blush is also available in 13 different shades.

3). The Body Shop Honey Bronze Drops of Sun - £12.00

Ever done your makeup and realised you look a little dull or ashy? Well this product from The Body Shop corrects that all. It helps tone down makeup whilst giving you a holiday glow, without making you look too shiny. A couple of drops make all the difference to lifeless looking makeup. You can also add a drop or two to your foundation or moisturiser before application too, and can be used for all skin tones.

4). Benefit They're Real Mascara - £19.50

Benefit's 'They're Real' is hands down one of the best mascara's on the market. If you don't have time for falsies, this mascara elongates your lashes without making them look clumpy. 100% worth the investment as it makes tired eyes look alert in seconds.

5). YSL Touche Éclat Le Teint Foundation - £32.50

This is a foundation to live by during the cooler months. You don't need much, but leaves your skin looking radiant with its dewy finish. Although I try and avoid this during summer as it can make you look greasy with the additional sweat, during winter this product is perfect as it gives your skin the additional moisture it needs. I would however avoid this though if you suffer from excessively oily skin.
