We'll admit it - sometimes, shopping for good beauty products can feel like searching for a needle in a haystack. From endless make-up counters in department stores to the literally limitless products available online, it can be more than a little tricky to find The One.

Luckily, help is at hand. Some of the world's most renowned make-up artists have revealed the beauty products they swear by and opened up their professional kits to help us on our quest for good make-up. 

From the £16 sponge used by Kim Kardashian's make-up artist to the £6 lip balm that Reese Witherspoon's beauty pro swears by, these are five of the ultimate beauty pieces to add to your arsenal.


Maybelline Mascara Great Lash

"I literally can't work without it. It makes blending foundation and concealer so easy and flawless. I just wet the sponge and squeeze it so its damp and blend away." - Mario Dedivanovic, who has worked with Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Lopez

Beauty Blender Sponge, £16 from selfridges.com


Bioderma Sensibio H2O Cleanser

Bioderma Sensibio H2O

"It’s one of my all time favourites! It’s a product that I’ve used for years and one that I always have in my kit as not only does it clean the skin really quickly, but it’s also extremely gentle so doesn’t aggravate skin, making it perfect to use when I’m working with models with different skin types, or if I’m doing a range of different looks and need to cleanse the model’s face in between each take." - Lisa Eldridge, who has worked with Keira Knightley, Kate Winslet and Cara Delevingne

Bioderma Sensibio H2O, £10.20 from boots.com


Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Train Bleu

Velvet Matte Lip Pencil - Train Bleu

"They're like lipliner and lipstick in one! So easy to use, and the matte finish has staying power." - Ashleigh Louer, who has worked with Emma Roberts

Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Train Bleu, £19 from narscosmetics.com
