The best part? They won't break the bank - hurrah!

Reality star Olivia is famous for her perfect bold brows, gorgeous dishevelled lob and ability to pull off more or less every lipstick shade imaginable but you'd be a fool to think she shells out fortunes on beauty bits and bobs to look so picture perfect.

On Sunday (14 August) the stunner - loved up with island beau Alex Bowen - let her fans and followers in on her prettifying secrets and she answered all of our beauty prayers by beginning with her always-seamless arches!

Panning the camera over her beauty bag, Olivia picked out the BPerfect Cosmetics Brow Kit, £24.99 and showed us exactly how she transforms her look from meh to gorge in a matter of seconds.

"I don't usually use the stencils that come with the kit, but if you haven't done your eyebrows before they're great," she said, dipping her brush into the brow pigment and filling in sparse hairs.

"I like to create my own shape and I love an ombre brow that's darker at the ends and lighter in the middle. All I do is shade in my brows but I don't put any product at the beginning of either one. You've got to remember that eyebrows are sisters not twins but they make such a huge difference to your face!"

Wise words, Liv - now onto those smackers!

"Everyone always asks me what lipstick I wear," Olivia said as she gave us another glimpse inside her make-up bag, "and I love these matte lipsticks by Ofra Cosmetics. They go on absolutely gorgeously and my favourite shade is Havanna Nights."

P.S. Each hue is only £16.99 a pop!

"They're all so easy to use," Olivia revealed as she spoke directly to the camera, "and I don't even use a lip liner with them as you can see the colour is so pigmented."

Of course, it wasn't long before Olivia's Insta-clips racked up thousands of views and it seems the beauty buys might sell out sooner than we thought!

"Just bought mine!" wrote one Insta-user, while another said, "Thanks! You should create a YouTube account. Would watch all the time."

Now isn't that an idea...
