Posted by Stephanie Orr in Skin Care, Makeup, Hair
Friday 15th September 2017 to Tuesday 19th September 2017 marks the beginning of a new evolution, yes London Fashion Week is back! SS18 has landed and this time it's all about the beauty trends which will be captivating our attention, or should I say, my bathroom cabinet from the beginning of next year.
If you're anything like me London Fashion Week is a huge deal, from attending fashion shows to streaming catwalk coverage it's a pivotal moment which not only takes centre stage in my diary, but also sparks my imagination over the course of 6 months.
Year after year though the late nights, sleep deprivation and everything else which comes with LFW over the course of 4 consecutive days gradually take their toll, leaving my skin distressed, dehydrated and in need of a prestigious pampering.
Whether you’re feeling drained or in need a revitalising pick me up, here are the 7 essentials I swear by to severely slay London Fashion Week.
