Just as many women have a little black dress, many also have a favourite product they tuck into their handbag every time they leave the house. Three makeup artists reveal what they wouldn't be seen dead without:

Liz Bohen 'A lightly frosted, tinted powder is good for all skin types and gives a boost of bronze highlights. It's all shimmery for summer - bronze is in.'

Ella Tham 'Lipstick or lip-gloss, because when you smile you show your character. There are so many brands and so many are good, it doesn't need to be expensive.'

Meg Sekine 'A high-lighter can be applied over moisturised skin or foundation. Put it just below the eye and just above the cheek. Blend it in with your finger and it will give you a nice glow.'
