The Old Bailey heard how a make-up artist helped create disguises for the £53m Securitas robbery. Police have released a series of images of materials from her bin.
Michelle Hogg, 32, made false noses, chins, moustaches, stubble and hairlines for the alleged robbers. Scraps of latex were found by police.
Charges against Miss Hogg in connection with the robbery were dropped after the prosecution accepted she did not know why she had been asked to provide the disguises.
Hair braids recovered from the wheelie bin of Miss Hogg, who is from Woolwich in south-east London, were presented as evidence in court.
Miss Hogg told the Old Bailey she contorted the face of one of the alleged robbers using rubber baby bottle teats in his nostrils and her bra straps to pin his eyes back.
Packaging from a false moustache from Miss Hogg's bin was produced as evidence. Seven men have pleaded not guilty to charges relating to the Securitas robbery.
Five men were convicted of conspiracy to rob, conspiracy to kidnap Securitas depot manager Colin Dixon, his wife and child, and conspiracy to possess firearms.
The Securitas robbery took place in Tonbridge, Kent, in 2006. The court heard Miss Hogg threw away all the left over make-up after hearing about the raid.
