His skin always looks amazing

We are a sucker for any type of beauty advice and when it is a TOWIE cast member that is dishing out some tips or recommending a make-up product we pay close attention.

On his latest TikTok, Junaid Ahmed aka the 'Bitch with a heart of gold,' went through all his must-have cosmetics for the long filming days and some are wonderfully affordable.

Known for throwing a cocktail and having one too many fights with Queen B Amber Turner, Junaid's make-up needs to be long-lasting and cope under the pressure of not only the copious amounts of filming but also the dramatic situations he always finds himself in.

Therefore, when Junaid mentioned the primer he uses to keep that glam face of make-up in place, we turned up the sound and made notes.

"To prime, I'm going to use the Maybelline Fit Me," he explained as he rubbed a few pumps of the product onto his skin, “it is actually amazing and makes you look so smooth and blurred."

The beauty queen used the Matte + Poreless version which comes in a turquoise and black tube but there is also the Luminous + Smooth for the same price.

Junaid always has a flawless base, and it makes sense that he went for the mattifying option as we can imagine the TOWIE lighting isn’t always the most forgiving and there is nothing worse than looking a tad too shiny on screen.

The primer also boasts an SPF of 20 which we all know is integral for a daily skin routine and to know it is included in the primer is a bonus.

Let's be honest, between the moisturiser/eye cream/toner/face oil/primer it is handy if one of them is protecting us a little against the (currently non-existent in England) sun rays.

We also spied the NYX Professional Makeup Micro Brow Pencil in the video that the glam reality TV star used to create those dark, groomed brows we are only slightly jealous of.

Both the primer and eyebrow pencil comes in at under a tenner which is an absolute steal because, you know, cost of living and all that.
