Love Island is known for its messy challenges and even messier love triangles, but thanks to its ongoing sponsorship deal with Boots, the ITV2 show has become a treasure trove for hard-working beauty recommendations. A product that ensures the Islanders look flawless on camera, but can also withstand the balmy Mallorca sun? We're all ears.

So far, Islander Nicole Samuel has been spotted touching up her make-up with the very affordable Maybelline Fit Me Powder, £7.99, Harriet Blackmore has been counting on Charlotte Tilbury's Bronzer, £45 for her villa glow and HiSmile's teeth whitening serum, £12.67 has been sitting pride of place in the villa's bathroom, justifying the cast's undeniably flashy smiles.

We caught up with a few Islanders before they went into the villa to hear all their secrets, and MUA Samantha Kenny was on hand to divulge the hero beauty products she packed in her iconic Love Island suitcase - and one of them is A-lister-approved.

'A cream bronzer is a staple in my kit and I use the Saie Soft-Focus Effortless Liquid Bronzer, £20 - I’ve actually got in on now. I also love the NUDESTIX Nudies Dewy Blush, £31.50 because we all love a rosy tint.'

Her stand-out beauty product? It's a beauty hack she's learned from Hailey Bieber.

'I can’t live without lip liner, I love my lips,' the Islander tell us. 'I’d say my favourite is definitely the Makeup Forever Anywhere Lipliner, £14 in the shade 'Caffeine', I got that off Hailey Bieber. That’s my go-to product.'

Yes, it's the very lip liner that went viral after Hailey touted it as her must-have for everyday glam.

Notably, the star detailed her exact go-to lip combo in a video titled, 'GRWM PT. 2' where she told fans, 'For lips, everyone knows I love this Anywhere Caffeine Lip Liner.'

Price: £14.25 (WAS £19)

Hailey finished her signature pinky-nude lip with the classic Charlotte Tilbury lipstick in shade, 'Pillowtalk'.

The Makeup Forever liner is constantly selling out (the Hailey Bieber effect) and is only available to buy in the UK from a handful of retailers including Sephora and LookFantastic. The product is loved for its incredible colour payoff, long-wearing formula and creamy yet matte finish, whilst Hailey's favourite shade 'caffeine' delivers the perfect chic and minimalist nude.
