Gemma Faus, freelance make up artist and tutor at Portobello Institute hand picks her top make up products and what she can't live without.

Maybelline gel eyeliner - I love this product and its cheap.  Its waterproof, doesn't dry out your eyes, smooth and easy to apply.  It comes with a brush and costs around E8/10 from Boots  A definite 'must have'.

L'Oreal eye make up remover - a great product for under E10.  It feels soft and gently removes all traces of mascara without drying your eyes.

Shu Uemura eyeshadows- This is a great Japanese brand that is now available from Brown Thomas.  Their colours are very special, great quality with a good pigmentation.  Their eyelash curler is also great.  Another 'must have' for make up bags.

 Mac Russian Red lipstick - If you like red lips then this is fantasic.  Really strong and lasts.

Make up Forever HD Foundation - This foundation gives a great coverage.  You need to use HD primer underneath but both give a fantastic finish.  I use them all the time for work and recommend this foundation all the time.
