Whether you're planning to try the pink trend, the barely there trend or maybe want to give the spring makeup trends a miss all together, there are some hero products that will take you through every season like a professional makeup artist.

We were behind the scenes at London Fashion Week and take great pride in staying aware of all the cult products out there, so for anyone who wants to know the best makeup and skincare to keep buying, start with some of these.

Bioderma Sensibio H20


The ultimate makeup remover. This is effective, non abrasive, kind to sensitive skin and reduces redness.

£10, garden.co.uk

Avene Thermal Water


Magic water all the way from France. We've already named this as #HandbagHero as it acts as both a treatment for aggravated skin and a makeup fixer.

Eyelash curler


Whether you're prepared to ditch the mascara or not, eyelash curlers will always open out your eyes. Must have. Must use.

Embryolisse Lait Creme Concentrate


You know when you want face moisturiser that is just moisturiser - no strange textures, no perfume - this is it. Deeply hydrating as well as protective, this cream gives the skin that velvety finish pre foundation.

£20, cultbeauty.co.uk

Lucas Paw Paw Ointment


Originating in Australia, Paw Paw ointment is a natural balm made from papaya. It is a magic soothes all gel, but for makeup artists, it is especially useful as a lip balm. It's like a natural version of 8 Hour Cream.

£4.35, pawpawshop.couk

Welda Skin Food


You may be sensing a theme, backstage is just as much about skincare as it is makeup. This is another ultra hydrating moisturiser, which is especially effective on dry elbows, hands and feet. Also it's totally veggie.

£9.95, weleda.co.uk

MAC Pro Longwear Concealer


Speaking to makeup professional Tom Sapin, we were told in no uncertain terms that this is the answer to perfect base. He even suggested using it as foundation.

£15.50, maccosmetics.co.uk
