Day in and day out, we scroll through Instagram to make sure we're bringing you the most up to date fashion and beauty trends. (It's a hard life, but someone's got to do it.) From the most talked-about products and new drops to the best advice, the social media platform is our favourite place to find out what people in the know are actually using.
That's why, when we decided to compile a list of the best beauty products out there, we thought who better to ask than the women we always stop and ogle? The ones who get sent product after product and have tried and tested them all. That may be why every time we see them, through the app or in real life, we can't quite get over how amazing their skin looks. We had to know their secrets.
Ahead, I asked nine fashion girls what their absolute favourite, desert-island, can't-live-without beauty products were. This is what they said…

"I use a vitamin C serum every single day. It's as much a part of my routine as moisturiser. Oily in texture but sinks in super quickly, this morning serum adds a bit of a healthy glow while also working to keep my skin dewy and protected throughout the day."
"I always have a massive one of these that I use every evening to take my makeup off with. I switched to using washable, reusable cotton pads too, which makes the whole process feel much less wasteful. I'm lazy and really hate having to wash my face to take mascara off, but face wipes are the devil, so this is a must. I always take the mini Garnier one with me when I'm travelling too."
"Full of food-grade organic cold-pressed oils and botanicals, this serum feels like the ultimate skin food and really leaves my skin feeling super nourished and hydrated come morning. I use it under a good night cream like Caudalie or Sarah Chapman."

Monikh wears this long-time classic day and night, despite the name. "It's the only thing I'm religious about. I'm obsessed", she says. "It really helps the texture and brightness of my skin." Sign us up.

"Not skincare but I couldn't live without my signature cat eye. It's been my look for years, and I've tried every liquid, pen, gel liner out there and spent a lot of money on high-end versions. Nothing compares to this high-street product, so I had to mention it. I bulk-buy it as I'm terrified it will be discontinued."
Katherine told us she couldn't possibly leave out her Hourglass eyebrow pencil, and we get why. A great brow finishes off a fresh-skin look perfectly. She says, "I got micro-blading done a few years ago, and it faded leaving a peachy coloured residue. Thankfully I found this perfect liner to cover it and build my brow shape subtly but effectively."
