Whether you love her or hate her on & Just Like That, there's no denying Carrie Bradshaw looks fabulous back on our screens a whole 17 years since SATC ended.

Of course, this is in part down to SJP's natural skin texture and tone, but a little bit of makeup never hurts. And thankfully, Sherri Berman Laurence - the show's Head Makeup Artist - and SJP's personal makeup artist Elaine Offers Woulard, have shared the secret formula.

With luxury products including Tom Ford's Shade and Illuminate (£112 / $150) and the Koh Gen Do Maifanshi Moisture Foundation (£70 / $79) all packed into Carrie's makeup bag, it seems like the routine might almost as much as a pair of her beloved Manolo's.

But there are two glow-getting affordable fan favourites that stand out:  Milk Makeup Mini Lip + Cheek, and Stila Convertible Color, both multi-tasking makeup finds that each come in at around £16 ($25).

Stila Convertible Color is a handy two-in-one lipstick and blush that's creamy and translucent, and works on any skin tone. We love it for layering colour, since you can apply it to be as sheer or as deep as you'd like.

Milk Makeup Mini Lip +, Cheek is also great multi-tasker, and it comes in a handy twist-up stick format. It can be effortlessly swept across the cheeks and lips for an instantly soft and dewy complexion.

As with any Milk product, it's 100% vegan and cruelty-free, and for even extra wow, it's packed with a whole cocktail of good for you ingredients. Peach nectar, mango butter and vitamin laden avocado oil all work to hydrate and nourish from the inside while helping you to look great on the outside.

And just like that, we've added them to our basket.
