Love Island's Olivia Buckland is fast becoming our biggest beauty inspiration thanks to her bold new brows and ability to pull off more or less every lippie shade imaginable - and her latest look is just as gorgeous.

When the stunning reality star teams up with make-up artist pal Connie Simmonds, magical things happen, and luckily for you guys the pair have taken to Instagram to share a complete product breakdown - woop!

But the best past is that you can ooze just as much glam as Liv from a totally purse-friendly £12.50 - no need to break the bank! Notepads at the ready, girls...

Make-up maestro Connie proved that there's really no need to shell out on super-expensive foundations (Kim Kardashian, we're looking at you) as she mentioned that high-street buys are just as great.

Connie blanketed Olivia's pretty mush in the NYX HD Foundation, £12.50, blending the product right down her neck and up into her hairline for a flawless finish.

She then took the Urban Decay 24/7 Concealer Pencil, £14 (in a shade two times lighter than Olivia's complexion) and swiped this underneath her eyes, down the centre of her nose and on the centre of forehead. Top tip: Use a damp Beauty Blender, £16 to work it into your foundation base.

No look would be complete without a killer contour and Connie looked to the Contour Cosmetics Multi Use Contouring Set, £42 to carve out a set of sharp-as-hell cheekbones for Olivia. It might be a little pricey, but trust us when we say it's well worth it!

Using an angled brush, take the darkest shade and paint it it into the hollows of your cheeks. Dot a little around your hairline and jawline and then use your damp blender to press the cream contour right into the skin.

Olivia's highlight is insanely on point in this selfie but Connie didn't spend fortunes on Anastasia Beverly Hills like other MUAs - oh no.

In fact, she popped along to her nearest Boots and picked up benefit's infamous Watt's Up highlighter, £34.50 which she swiped down the centre of Olivia's nose and dabbed into the corners of her eyes - simple!

If you want a bold lip a la Liv, you have to start with a long wear lip pencil. The exact one Connie used? M.A.C's Nice and Spicy, £15.50 of course! Trace your lip line and then fill in your entire lip so that your chosen lippie shade (Connie's was NYX's London layered over Athens, FYI) stays put.

Eyes & eyebrows:

Yes, Olivia is wearing falsies in her selfie but MUA Connie gave her peepers an extra dose of drama with a slick of benefit's Roller Lash Mascara, £19.50. Be sure to give your lower lashes a good coat, too.

Olivia recently got her brows tattooed (eek!) at home in Essex but she asked Connie to take them even bolder! A light swipe of benefit's Ka-BROW! Eyebrow Cream-Gel Colour, £18.50 in 04, Medium made Olivia's arches stand out.

Now if you'll excuse us, we're off to the shops. Kudos, Connie!
