Boutique owner Sam can be seen with clear, velvety skin with a touch of contour powder defining her cheekbones, plus a slick of summery coral lipstick.

In true Essex gal style she's rocking defined, arched brows and quite possibly the most perfectly-applied liquid liner we've ever seen. Jel!

And to create her glowing complexion, it looks like Sam's make-up artist is a fan of the Real Techniques Buffing Brush, sold as part of the four-piece Core Collection, £21.99.

Buffing brushes are great for really working your foundation into the skin, and this one features synthetic bristles making it easy to clean as it won't absorb the pigment from your products.

Not only can you use your buffing brush in circular motions to apply foundation, it's also great for blending in cream products such as bronzers, blushers or illuminators. Simply dot them onto your skin with your fingers before smoothing out any telltale lines with your brush.

And it's a good idea to wash your brush regularly to avoid bacteria building up. Swirl your brush in a gentle shampoo before rinsing with water, but make sure the water doesn't go near the area where the brushes attach to the handle as this can dislodge the glue, making your brush hairs shed. For the same reason, it's best not to dry your brushes standing up. Instead, lay them flat on a towel.
