As one of the UAE's IT girls, Kat Lebrasse is a big name on the fashion circuit. The blogger and social media maven leads a life that some could only dream of, from New York fashion week to Dubai's Fashion Forward, you can bet Kat will be there with the most coveted invites in town.

It's not just her wardrobe that's enviable. Each perfect ensemble is finished off with a killer beauty look to match. We decided to delve into her make-up bag to find out how the Australian stylist achieves that dewy glow.

Make-up total cost: AED1,690

If I could only keep one of these products in my make-up bag, it would be...
Laura Mercier's secret camouflage. A girl's gotta hide her imperfections!

My top tip for summer beauty is...
Primer. In the melting heat, make up doesn't last long, but primer gives us the little helping hand to keep make-up in place and keep skin looking luminous.

I apply my foundation with...
Brush and fingers, depending on the consistency of the foundation. If it's quite thick, I apply with my fingers as the warmth of my hands helps break down the particles and spread it evenly over my face. Otherwise, I like to use a brush.

The shop I buy most of my beauty products in is...
Sephora. It's my go-to for all make up needs. On occasion, you might find me hit Bloomingdales or Harvey Nichols if the product I'm after isn't available at Sephora.

My beauty secret is...
Less is more. I'm not a fan of heavy make-up. I prefer a natural glow and I think a lot of the time, that's achieved with the right skin care in conjunction with effective use of make-up. Cleanse, tone, and moisturize, day and night. No excuses!
