WATCH: Take a peek inside Triona McCarthy's everyday make-up bag essentials

Beauty guru Triona McCarthy took a few minutes from her busy schedule of make-up testing and name-dropping to show us the absolute essentials she carries around in her make-up bag every day.



L’Oréal Paris Elnett Hairspray, €4.42

"My granny used it, my Mum uses it, I use it, my little girl Mini, who is four, uses it. It has a patented nozzle, that's why Elnett is the one everyone uses. It micro-difuses and no other nozzle can do that. If it's good enough for the supermodels of the world it is good enough for me."

L’Oréal Paris True Match Foundation, €15.39

"I am all about the base. This is my go-to foundation. They've just reformulated it so there are way more skincare benefits – there are things like hyaluronic acid and aloe vera in it now. It feels fantastic on."

L’Oréal Paris Rouge Signature Lipsticks, €13.85


"These are brand new and really so easy to put on. They make everything a bit more dramatic looking."

L’Oréal Paris Volume Million Lashes, €15.35

"The clue is in the name – it gives you a million lashes. It's all about the applicator with this. Mascara is the quickest way to prettify if you want to just open up your eyes."

Take a peek inside Triona's make-up bag in the video above and hear about her adventures with James Charles and Derek Blasberg at New York Fashion Week.
