We have made it our personal mission to uncover the exact contents of the Kardashian/Jenner makeup bags and so far, we've done a pretty good job at it.

From a comprehensive list of all of Kim's favourite foundations, to the brown mascara Kylie Jenner swears by and not forgetting the £13 lipstick Khloe managed to sell out.

Now we have makeup artist Hrush Achemyan to thank for sharing the foundation and technique she uses for all TV appearances on her celebrity clients, including the Kardashians themselves.

In her latest YouTube video: "Celebrity MUA exposes Hollywood's biggest makeup secrets", Hrush shared that "regular foundations" aren't used for HD cameras, instead professionals like herself use creams from pro makeup brands.

"Professional makeup is used, we need to paint the face for the HD cameras to capture it correctly, and to do that we use HD creams," she explained.

Hrush's personal favourites are the Kryolan Dermacolour foundation palette, along with RCMA's version.

However, she warned that "nobody will sit there and explain to you how this product is actually supposed to be manipulated".

So, if you'd already caught wind of the trade secret and had been applying these cream foundations direct from the pan, listen up.

Hrush's method of application involves mixing the foundation with either La Mer's Moisturising Cream, or MAC's Prep & Prime Essential Oil.

Using the back of her hand, Hrush first dabs her brush into the cream/oil, before mixing her brush into the foundation.

The result is a far creamier finish that looks flawless.

Now all that's left to do is secure that guest spot on the new Kardashian Hulu show...
