Hands up if you’re a YouTube addict? Symptoms include looking up one video and then realising you’ve lost three hours of your life and came across a roller-skating dog in the process. We’ve all been there – and one of the reasons is down to Suzie Bonaldi’s brilliant Hello October channel. Like us, she’s a ‘good skincare, cures all’ kinda girl and is refreshingly relatable, with killer tekkers for an eyeliner flick too.

Suzie says: “The beauty advice I always dish out is to keep a consistent and quality skincare routine. It doesn't have to be made up of a million products - a great cleanser and the right moisturiser (plus SPF in the summer) are the core basics. As long as your skin is well cared for you can get away with anything in terms of make-up and often don't need as much.”

Here’s what’s taking pride of place in her Beauty Drawer…

Collection Fast Stroke Liquid Liner: I've been using this £3 eyeliner since I was 15 years old when I used to paint it all around my eyes. I'm not so extreme with my liner now but I love this one because it sets, does not budge and stays jet black - a must for me as my eyes are such a dark shade of brown it makes most liners look grey!

Aerin Lengthening and Volumising Mascara: - I never used to ‘get’ the point of high-end mascaras, but I tried this one over the summer and it's amazing. It gives super fluttery volume and stays put too - no mascara crumbling into my eye scenarios. My lashes are still as long and feathery after a long day as they were when I left the house.

Tom Ford Velvet Orchid EDP: This is the scent I always go back to, day and night. It's sweet but musky and dark at the same time. It’s my signature scent.

Kiehl’s Skin Rescuer: My perfect moisturiser. It gives just the right amount of hydration and nourishment to the skin without being too rich. I apply it both day and night and have done for over two years now!

Tom Ford Eye Shadow Quads: I have the Cognac Sable palette, which is the most beautiful palette in existence. The shadows are so buttery soft and blend like a dream.
