Why she loves them:

"A few years ago, I had hormonal acne - I was getting treatments every week, spending so much money and time on skincare. I thought there must be another answer, and when I went to Rationale, sure enough, within three months, I started seeing luminous skin and my breakups clearing up. From there, I became the Rationale cult leader. I use quite specialised Rationale products, for example, the cleanser isn't the main cleanser, it's a specialised cleanser."

"The Tatcha exfoliant is kind of like the Dermalogica Microfoliant, it's really gentle. I only use it if my skin texture isn't super smooth. For sunscreen, I love Ultra Violette. I've known the co-founder [Ava Matthews] for 10 years, but the reason I love Queen Screen is because it gives me a bit of a glow and I love the smell. I don't think it's congesting my skin at all, and it doesn't feel sunscreen-y. It's the best-selling product at my salon."

Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer SPF 15, $83.

By Terry Terrybly Densiliss Concealer, $100.

Why she loves them:

"I prime when I'm going somewhere fancy, but not under my every day IT Cosmetics CC Cream because it's an extra step. That said, I like the Tatcha primer too, and the Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré Moisturiser. For my going out foundation, I use By Terry. I need coverage because I have rosacea, which is aggravated by chilli, stress, not enough sleep and even retinol. I'm obsessed with the By Terry concealer, I use it everywhere, under my eyes and around my nose. It's the best, it does not crease under my eyes, ever. It's a lighter coverage, but still has enough pigment."

NARS Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner in Via Appia, $40.

Chantecaille Faux Cils Longest Lash Mascara, $110.

Why she loves them:

"I always said I loved lash lifts, but once I tried extensions, now I'm hooked. When I don't have extensions, I use this mascara.. sometimes, I pop it on top when I do have extensions. I do recommend lash lifts for the majority of people, and a tint, every six to eight weeks. It lifts the lash from the root and when you pop your mascara on, it takes two seconds. The NARS eyeliner is always sold out, but the shade is stunning, a beautiful, shimmery brown."

Charlotte Tilbury Kissing Lipstick in Penelope Pink, $49.

MAC Cremesheen Lip Gloss in Boy Bait, $40.

Why she loves them:

"This combination was a fluke, and it's made me more of an 100/10 than I've ever been in my entire life. The Charlotte Tilbury is the best lipstick, it's a very light pink, and the lip gloss goes over the top. Then, I wear this sleep mask to bed, it's amazing. The first time I used it, I coated it on and when I woke up, my lips were really tacky, but now I put it on as a lip balm during the day, and a little bit heavier at night."

MineTan Violet Self Tan Foam, $29.99.

Why she loves it:

"I don't ever go into the sun, I'm petrified now because I've got all these freckles on my chest. We use this tan in the salon for spray tans and I use it at home with the mitt. I like the violet shade because it's the colour you go when you go to Europe, not at all orange. I tan for two hours, shower and then it keeps developing. I'm always best on day two, so I do it on Thursday if I'm going somewhere on Saturday."

Kristin's Spendy: Santa Maria Novella Idrasol Body Cream, $127.

Why she loves it:

"It's like a body butter, my friends wear it and I felt their legs one day and they were so soft like silk. It's so luxe. It's a lot for a body cream, so it's not an everyday body cream. I use it more when I want self-care. Every day, I use the Abhati Suisse Kanva Body Lotion."

Kristin's Savey: Body Crystal Botanica Roll On Deodorant, $5.50.

Why she loves it:

"I've been using this for a while, I stopped using aerosols a year and a half ago because I get a rash. This has aluminium in it, but it's $3 from Woolies. I do get a bit damp because it's not an antiperspirant, but I'm not smelly. Side note, I also love MegaBabe Rosy Pits."
