Natasha Poly doesn't "trust" setting sprays.

The 32-year-old model has admitted she avoids using the beauty product that is spritzed on the face to ensure the wearer's make-up sets, and instead she relies on Clarins' Powder Pore Perfecting Matifying Kit, which comes with blotting paper, to remove any moisture from her face.

Speaking about her beauty hacks to Refinery29.com, the blonde-haired beauty said: "I like the Clarins powder compact because it's translucent and it comes with blotting papers to get rid of any shine. I don't trust setting sprays -- or I haven't found the right one yet."

Prior to removing any excess shine from her skin, the star applies a string of cosmetic items to her face, starting with Make Up For Ever's stick foundation, which is followed by a touch of her "gold pen", which is Yves Saint Laurent's Touche Eclat, and Laura Mercier's Secret Camouflage matte powder.

She explained: "[The Make Up For Ever stick ] I use it with a brush and a sponge. I first spread it on with a brush, then I use the sponge to take the extra off so it has a thinner texture and it's pressed into my skin, not sitting on top of it.

"I use the gold pen to draw lines under my eyes, on top of my nose, on the smile wrinkles around my lips, then a dab on my chin, on my cheekbones, and on the bone of my eyebrows.

"[Then she applies Laura Mercier product] it gives a more matte finish, because the YSL has a very watery texture and the Laura Mercier is very dry, so together, it's the best coverage."

The Russian catwalk icon then works on her eye make-up, and applies a variety of colours to her lid prior to using eye liner and mascara.

She said: "I use the darker brown [of Tarte's Tartelette In Bloom compact ] to shape up the crease of the eyelid -- really just on the crease, and then I blend it out.

"The waterproof formula [of Chanel's Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long-Lasting Eyeliner] is great because it stays on all day long and has a drier finish, so it doesn't smudge. I like to apply it between my eyelashes, just on the roots, so it's super-natural and lived-in.

"[Then she applies NARS Larger Than Life Lengthening Mascara] It's the best -- and it really lifts my lashes so they stay put all day."

Natasha continues her routine by highlighting her features with Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette, before she applies Givenchy's Healthy Glow bronzer, which she claims makes her look like she has been basking in the sun.

She said: "I use the Hourglass highlighter on my cheekbones, below my eyebrow, in the middle of the chin, and down the nose.

"I apply this bronzer along the frame of my face, then add a little bit on the middle of my cheeks with a big fluffy brush, which makes the colour look subtle and natural. Plus, it's amazing for red carpet looks because it looks like I've just been in the sun."
