Recommendations from pros who use the stuff, day in day out.

There are things we all technically can't live without -- food, water, shelter -- you know, the usual. Then there are things we technically can live without, but would prefer not to (like Netflix, Nutella and daylight savings).

Ask any expert in any given profession and they'll also have staples they use daily that they'd rather not live, or perhaps work, without.

For a chef it might be olive oil. For a writer, their laptop. And for Australia's best makeup artists, it's these following products:

Heidi Scarlett King

Dr Jart BB cream SPF 45, $83

"This really is THE wonder skin product of all time as it ticks so many boxes all at once. It's a high factor sun protector, erases redness and imperfections, gives natural coverage, is a great primer under makeup that gives twice as much wear to your base, plus it illuminates yet also mattifies the skin. Tick, tick, tick!"

Olaplex Hair perfector No 3, $49.95

"This truly has been the saviour of my sun and colour-damaged hair this summer. Using this hair treatment in between colours has helped rebuild my hair by rebonding the hair shafts at a cellular level. I recommend it to all of my clients who have any colour damage."

ghd Platinum Styler, $315

"This is the latest styling tool from the ghd range that makes creating this season's go-to look, the undone wave, a breeze. The difference between their original straighteners and the new and improved style is the larger, rounded outer edges so it's perfect for creating the bend, and the gentler heat plates that actually protect your hair from breakage."

Tobi Henney

L'Oréal Paris Telescopic Mascara in Black, $26.95

"I love this mascara as the comb wand makes my lashes super long and separated."

Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer, $599

"This hairdryer has cut down my blow dry time and is super light. Definitely a huge fan of this hair dryer."

ElNett Hair Spray, $10.95

"I love it for fixing brushed up brows in place and also adding texture and hold to effortless hairstyles."

Natalia Sprem

Lancôme Flash Bronzer Face Tanning Gel, $75

"I've been using it for years and years. Put it on before bed and wake up glowing with a perfect smooth complexion."

Oribe Texturizing Spray, $70

"The amazing ingredient is the hydrofluorocarbon. I think it's the best product invented to make hair look effortlessly cool."

Alcon Naphcon A eye drops, $8.95

"The only eye drops I've found that actually works. Completely eliminates any redness, and makes your eyes bigger and brighter in seconds, without stinging."

Damian Garozzo

Bioderma Solution Micellaire, $31.99

"Like most makeup artists, I'm obviously obsessed with this cleansing water, but I'm also currently loving Bioderma's matte finish, tinted broad spectrum sunscreen, Photoderm Max Ultra-Fluide SPF 50+."

Melvita Rosehip Oil, $52

"I've used this rosehip oil on my face and body for years, and also love their Rose Water Spray for rehydrating models tired skin at the end of long shoot days."

Clinique Airbrush Concealer, $40

"This is my go-to for brightening under eyes, and retouching throughout the day. It' the perfect balance of light reflection and coverage, it's been a mainstay in my kit for years."
