“To ensure make-up stays in place all day long, start by using Smashbox photo finish primer Dermaxyl complex,” says Hayley who has worked her magic on a whole host of stars.

“It helps create a flawless finish and is so fabulous you can use alone or with foundation.

“This award-winning product reduces the appearance of fine lines and pores and contains SPF 20. Simply blend it in with your fingertips,” she adds.

If you’re looking for a base that will keep your complexion looking flawless. Hayley recommends MAC Pro Longwear foundation.

“It’s available in 15 different shades and the long-lasting formula will give you more than 15 hours of high performance coverage too. Plus it doesn’t look too heavy,” she explained.

“The best concealer I have found that really lasts and lasts is Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage concealer.

“It really grips to the skin and provides instant heavy-duty coverage, even if like me you have skin that can become oily throughout the day.”

There’s nothing worse than smudged panda eyes, so make sure you choose a mascara that won’t budge.

“Estee Lauder Double Wear Mascara is a great investment if you find your mascara normally smudges, this won’t budge and the slim brush ensures every lash is covered,” says Hayley.

“And if you want your eye liner to say in place Rimmel Scandal Eyes Waterproof Kohl Liner provides a lovely intense colour that is smudge-proof, sweat-proof, heat-proof – ideal to take on your holidays!” – © Cover Media
