As the host of the Australian E! channel, former Sydney model Ksenija Lukich reports on the fast-paced world of celebrity news whilst remaining camera-perfect at all times

She shares her beauty bag essentials with us:

1. Foundation: Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation in 4.5 and 5.5. I use two shades for when I have a tan and without tan. I love how you can build the coverage and it gives a dewy finish.

2. Powder: Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette. It has three powders in it, for different effects. They also really help to keep make-up in place without looking matte.

3. Blush: Illamasqua Cream Blusher in Rude.  The pigment is really strong, so I only need a little and I love the creamy texture. I also love Benefit Benetint Rose-Tinted Lip & Cheek Stain.

4. Bronzer/Illuminator: Benefit Watts Up! Gorgeous for cheekbones and the inner corner of the eye.

5. Eyeliner: L’Oréal Paris Superliner Perfect Slim Liner. Makes it so easy to do the winged eyeliner look. I prefer a really fine line and the small tip applicator allows for that. 

6. Eyeshadow: Nars Eyeshadow Duo in Cordura. I use a number of different eye shadows but anything in a bronzy brown tone works best for my skin tone and eye colour. This is one of my favourites. 

7. Mascara: L’Oréal Paris Lash Architect 4D False Lashes Mascara. Gets into all the little nooks and crannies. I love lots and lots of mascara!

8. Brow product: I use a taupe eyeshadow with an angled brush to fill my brows in and brush them upwards with a clean mascara wand and hair spray. I really like the full, bushy eyebrow look.

9. Cleanser: Cetaphil Restoraderm Eczema Calming Body Wash. I suffer from eczema, so my skin is fairly sensitive. Simple is best, and this works really well to remove all my make-up and its very gentle on my face.

10. Night cream: Organic Rosehip Oil.

11. Day moisturiser/sunscreen: Embryolisse Lait Crème Concentre. It’s really creamy and helps with my dry skin.  I also use Mecca Cosmetics In a Good Light tinted moisturiser every day. It's SPF30 which is perfect for my fair and sensitive skin. It also leaves my skin looking sun kissed. 

12. Make-up remover: Bioderma Créaline. One of the only make-up removers that doesn’t irritate my skin. It can be difficult to get your hands on, but is so worth it!

13. Body moisturiser: Coconut oil or rosehip oil.

14. Shampoo and conditioner: Kevin Murphy Hydrate-Me Wash and Rinse. 

15. Hair product: I start with Kérastase Couture Styling Mousse Bouffante, which adds volume and texture to my hair. Then I style it (usually in a soft wave) and finish with L’Oréal Elnett Satin Hairspray. 

16. Fragrance: Tom Ford Black Orchard. I love the almost-masculine smell.  It lasts all day too!

17. Make-up brushes: I’m absolutely obsessed with Rae Morris’ brushes. She’s an incredible Australian make-up artist, who has created her own line of brushes. They make such a difference when applying make-up. I’m especially in love with her Radiance brush.
