This wonderful nugget of beauty wisdom comes courtesy of Mamamia’s beauty show, You Beauty. For this week’s In Her Bag, Leigh Campbell rummaged through Elyse Knowles’ beauty bag to find out which products she loves.

Elyse Knowles is an Australian model and is currently an ambassador for Myer. She works with brands including Seafolly, Davidoff Cool Water, Vital and Aveda, and won the 2017 series of The Block. She’s also just released her debut book ‘From Me To You’.

Elyse Knowles has tried and worn a lot of beauty products.

Her work as a model for brands like Myer, Seafolly and Aveda sees her face painted and hair styled on a daily basis.

Ironically, the one thing the model has on her person at all times has nothing to do with beauty.

It’s ‘chakra spray’ and Elyse says she loves it so much, she has bottles by her bed, at her desk, in her handbag and with her when she travels.

Chakra spray was just one of the interesting products Mamamia’s executive editor and beauty editor of 15 years Leigh Campbell found when she went rummaging through Elyse’s beauty bag.

From the dry shampoo she douses her hair in to the mascara she loves, keep scrolling to find out which products Elyse uses every single day…

Why she loves it:

"I use this every morning, I feel like it's a really nicely scented formula that goes on your face really smoothly and gives you that nice burst of life you need in the morning. It sinks in really deeply and gives me the plumpness that I need to take on the day."

Why she loves it:

"It's so thick, I use it a lot when I'm flying. I take all my makeup off and go heavy on the cream, it feels like it's soaking in really deep, it has a really nice scent as well and makeup goes over it really nicely. A beautiful, all-round cream, and it's good to support Australian made products too."

Why she loves it:

"It is so good, I put it on before I go to bed, and you can still feel it on in the morning. It's not sliding off, it's soaking in, it's a beautiful product. It's more on the expensive side, but it's well worth the money."

Why she loves it:

"This is a beautiful primer, it creates a nice barrier, so if you want to put light makeup on during the day, a CC cream or something like that, it gives you a nice complexion and you don't have to bulk up the foundation so much. I like to keep my skin light and fresh, the primer makes your skin smooth."

Why she loves it:

"I always put SPF on my face, you never know where you're going to be or what you'll be doing throughout the day... it's always really crucial to look after your skin. We don't want to go wrinkly if we don't have to, SPF is key whether it's on your body or your face. It's vital for me, and I've always got a white face [from not getting burnt]. Some makeup artists ask me, are you OK, are you sick? No man, I've just got a white face!"
