In her 20-year career, she's tended to the faces of stars including Pippa Middleton, Cara Delevingne, Heidi Klum and Jerry Hall.

Renowned makeup artist Attracta Courtney, from Kingston upon Thames, has so much experience under her belt that she has now founded her very own Attracta Beauty Awards, which are the only makeup beauty artist awards in the UK.

Having announced the winners of the 2017 awards at a prestigious awards ceremony at London's Lanesborough Hotel, Courtney has now revealed which 12 are her favourite - and divulged some top beauty tips.

Attracta, a leading industry expert, rigorously tests products on herself and then on location in studios and worldwide locations. 

She claims to know which products really work to not only make us look better but feel better also.

Speaking about the brands that have won this year, and the new discoveries she has made, Attracta told Femail: 'I feel the "No Makeup Makeup look" is now more popular than ever as people want to reveal their natural healthy glow - wearing less foundation and covering only where it is needed.

'Zelens Youth Glow and Oxygenetix are two of my favourite ‘doctor' brand foundations to use on set for that barely there 'natural makeup' look.'

The makeup artist recommends always wearing an SPF cream if you want to have 'beautiful, fresh, healthy skin' and says: 'My favourite new discovery is Dr Barbara Strum Sun Drops SPF 50 - the cream is super light, non-greasy and gives maximum protection and all you need are three little drops.'

Asked what is big for 2017, Attracta says: 'Elegant hues of burnished copper, warm golden metallics or gold leaf textures are huge this summer for eyes. 

'The Rosie for Autograph cream eyeshadow pens are perfect to effortlessly apply these beautiful colours all over the eyelids for that smouldering relaxed festival vibe, or they can be just applied to the inner corner of the eye to add a magical golden sparkle.'

Her essential top tip when buying mascara is to test if the mascara wand is long and firm and the brush has lots of long bristles to capture all your lashes.

If you're seeking voluminous lashes then ensure you apply the darkest black and really nudge the wand into the lash roots to exaggerate the volume. 

Speaking about this year's awards, Attracta added: 'This year is even more special as it is the first time I have celebrated the Attracta Beauty Awards with an awards ceremony. 

'To gather all these Amazing Natural Health and Beauty Tips for Your Lifestyle people from the world of beauty in one place and recognise people and brands who are taking beauty to that next level is really humbling and what my awards are all about.'
