Working as a Fashion Editor for Coggles, Fashion Week is one of the busiest months of the year for me, with all the shows in London as well as trips across to Paris and Milan. I'm talking about the products I swear by behind the scenes at Fashion Week.
My Fashion Week Saviours
Every year before I go I take time to pack everything I need, from the killer outfits to the beauty essentials to help me look my best. This year I'm heading from London to Milan, with lots of busy days in between, so it is all about hydration and radiance in hand-luggage friendly proportions!
1.Elemental Herbology Cell Nourish Facial SerumLate nights writing show reports and early mornings to make the first shows mean my skin needs a lot of help. I always take a small bottle of Elemental Herbology Cell Nourish Facial Serum to give my face an extra boost of vitamins and antioxidants before moisturising. It is the perfect protector against the city pollution too, leaving my face looking fresh despite the long days.
2.First Aid Beauty Eye Duty Triple Remedy AM Gel CreamEye cream is definitely a must with all those late nights; no one wants to conduct interviews with puffy eyes and dark circles! The Triple Remedy AM Gel Cream from First Aid Beauty is my essential for rejuvenating the eye area. The gel formula feels so soothing on tired eyes and stops me from needing to wear my sunglasses all day to hide my tired eyes!
3.Pixi Endless Silky Eye Intensify DuoI am a big fan of simple, scandinavian style and it is the same when it comes to my makeup. I prefer to opt for simple looks that don't need a lot of maintenance throughout the day. This duo eyeliner from Pixi by Petra goes on really easily and won't smudge all day, providing me with a quick but effective look for the eyes.
4.First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Lip TherapyI always find the air conditioning on flights really drying, so an extra-moisturising lip balm is a must. I like this one from First Aid Beauty. It is Petroleum-Free, which I appreciate, and it only takes a little to leave my lips soft. This gets popped into my handbag everywhere I go!
5.TheBalm BalmShelter Tinted MoisturiserIt will be hot when I'm in Milan so I'll be keeping my makeup to a minimum. I'll be swapping foundation for a tinted moisturiser for a much lighter finish and less chance of it sliding off my face! This one from theBalm gives me the coverage I need with a natural finish, plus it contains SPF18 for sun protection.
6.REN Glycolactic Radiance Renewal MaskWith such a busy few weeks, it always takes its toll on my skin. I like to fight dullness with an glow-boosting facemask once a week. I swear by the Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask from REN; I also love the light zesty orange smell . With my little travel size version, I know it will give my skin a lift post-flight, taking away that dullness you tend to get from travelling.
