    Submitted by melissar4245c10bd.

    4. Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water, £20.

    "I use it as a primer before makeup, setting spray to make my look last all day, and as a refreshing spray for a mid-day boost. It's amazing and I would never go a day without it."

    Submitted by kstoker056.

    5. Aztec Secret Indian Healing Facial Clay, £9.70.

    "Perfect as a mask and I use every single day as a finishing/setting powder over foundation."

    Submitted by j42f8d6538.

    6. Coconut Oil, from £1.50.

    "Coconut oil. You can use it for so many things: moisturiser, add two drops to acetone for a non-drying nail polish remover, add to dried-out lip products, mix with pigments/eyeshadow for cream shadow, and so much more."

    Submitted by Tanvi Mishra, Facebook.

    7. Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant, £26.

    "I had a bad patch of sunburn on my shoulder and it helped clear it right up. It’s great for chapped lips too!"

    Submitted by sa88.

    8. Charlotte Tilbury Beach Stick, £30.

    "Great for cheeks, as a highlighter, and also on lips. Smells amazing too. I adore it!"

    Submitted by christieo4c474f839.

    9. Extra virgin olive oil, from £3.80.

    "For me, extra virgin olive oil is the thing. Great as a nourishing hair mask, quick and easy to wipe your make up off with (even waterproof mascara goes off in seconds) and it can be used for shaving too."

    Submitted by Vaida Jėčienė, Facebook.

    10. Illamasqua Powder Eye Shadow in Heroine, £16.50.

    "It's the best for contouring fair skin tones. Most bronzers are too orange so eyeshadows are often better."

    Submitted by helgagudrung.

    11. MAC Strobe Cream, £24.50.

    "It can be used as a liquid highlighter, as an illuminating moisturiser before you apply makeup, or you can mix it in with your foundation/BB/CC cream/tinted moisturiser for a nice, healthy glow."

    Submitted by jaimek425416f1c.

    12. Dr Lipp Original Nipple Balm for Lips, £12.

    "I use it as a lip balm, lip gloss, to add a sheen to eyelids, mix with powder to use as highlighter, to keep unruly brows in place, rub on heels of the feet if I feel a blister coming on; the list is endless."

    Submitted by a403b0eda8.

    13. Aveeno Daily Moisturising Lotion, £5.69.

    "It’s a great moisturiser and an AMAZING primer. I’ve never bought a primer that works as well as this does."

    Submitted by kateylou.

    14. Kevyn Aucoin The Sensual Skin Enhancer, £38.

    "It can be a foundation, concealer, or used to contour."

    Submitted by Remee Patel.

    15. Studio 10 Brow Lift Perfecting Liner, £22.

    "I use this eyebrow pencil as an eyeliner, and it was made in partnership with a women's cancer charity."

    Submitted by Rachael Krishna.

    16. S.W. Basics Cream, £32.

    "It's good as a primer, but also a good lotion and chapstick. Plus it's only three ingredients."

    Submitted by Cameron Coffin, Facebook.

    17. Red lipstick, from £1.

    "I use this red lipstick as a colour corrector. It works well on darker skin because it can be easily covered with foundation, but lighter skin should try pink lipstick for colour correction."

    Submitted by Tolani Shoneye.

    18. Soap & Glory Wonderbronze Highlight & Sculpt Cheek Stick, £8.

    "I use this as a blush, a highlighter, and on my eyes."

    Submitted by Alicia Melville-Smith.
