Your Fashion Week Survival Kit – SORTED
Posted by Tala Barbir in Hair, Fragrances, Makeup, Hands & Feet
Wohoo, it's here! Fashion Week season has officially begun my friends, and if you're lucky enough to be attending, I'm here to help you survive the long hours of tired eyes and sweat patches! Whether you're screening House of Holland or Jonathan Saunders, there is one rule every woman in the FROW abides by – PACK LIGHT.
Other than stashing a couple of ear buds (to fix smudges) and mints (well, obvs), our top beauty and makeup picks will get you ready to go from backstage to afterparty before you can even say, “Mary Katrantzou”. Opt for tiny multi-purpose products with pretty packaging – no one wants to see a clunky, roll-on deo fall out of a Chanel now do they?
1. A Bl-onzer:
Stay sun kissed this Fall by using a dual cheek tint and bronzer. A small, round compact, including it's own brush and mirror, will help you perk up in a few sweeps without having to miss a show. Gel-like textures can easily be layered for desired intensity on your cheeks, while an orange-free bronzer glides on smoothly for a healthy glow. Online Beauty Buy: DuWop Bronzerush from £22.40.
2. A Stick Concealer:
You probably spent ages on the High Street and in Harvey Nicks searching for the perfect outfit, so why ruin it when touching up? A stick concealer allows you to blur spots and diminish dark circles throughout the day without having to blend in too much. A sleek one that slips in to your clutch will have you camera-ready in no time. Online Beauty Buy: NARS Concealer from £19.00.
3. A Lip Plumping Highlighter:
Choose a sticky, light-coloured lipgloss with a cushioned, soft-tip brush that you can also use to highlight your cheekbones. The particles in the gloss will make the flashes bounce off of your complexion beautifully – bring on the paps! Online Beauty Buy: Laura Mercier Lip Plumpers from £26.58.
4. A Volume Booster:
Too embarrassed to flip your hair upside down for added volume? A mini spray with mega strength is a top beauty and makeup pick for Fall, and can discreetly provide some va-va-voom to flat hair – all in two little sprays. Online Beauty Buy: Batiste Stylist Oomph My Locks XXL Spray from £4.29.
5. A Rosy Glow:
Running around in the cold can leave you feeling a little dry. Carry a small tube of hand cream that contains dry oil and double up as a fragrance. Dot around your décolletage, et voilà! Online Beauty Buy: Lanolips Intense Hand Balm With Rose Oil from £7.34.
