Though a fan of luxe and fancy packaging on my cosmetics, when it comes to my professional kit, I prefer filling it in with straight-forward no-fuss makeup. When you're short on time and needs to finish too many heads to count, you want to be able to grab hold on efficient products that are streamlined and gets the work done.

Come in Cargo Cosmetics in the picture. This 20-year old Canadian brand has been a staple on the sets of film and television as well as in the makeup kits (mine included) of women worldwide.

At the relaunch of the brand this week, we've tried first hand the uncompromised product quality and first-to-market innovations of the smart makeup range Cargo offers.

The full range of Cargo Cosmetics

Innovations like the Reverse Lip Liner™, the Essential Eye Palette, and the High Definition collection makes it easy for us to achieve professional quality makeup looks at home. My personal favorite would be their high-definition foundations that create flawless skin but escape the scrutiny of high-def cameras.

My top picks: All-in-One Color Stick, Eye Contour Eyeshadow Palette and Boundless Lashes Mascara
