What three beauty products couldn't you live without? And how do you decide what makes the cut? A beauty bag must-have is simple enough that you can reach for it every day but good enough that you want to rave to your friends about it. 

And lets be honest, when you are having a beauty dilemma, it's your BFFs you call. After all, they give you the recommendations, share the holy grail products and spill the tea like no one else. 

To help us ID the latest makeup bag essentials,  we called on our favourite birds to share their every day must-haves. Check out their – and soon to be your – top picks here.
