Our Beauty Editor's Fashion Week Essentials
Australian Fashion Week (or more officially, Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia) starts tonight and we couldn't be more excited! We're expecting some major beauty moments, not only on the runway but backstage and in the front row, too!
You only have to look at the celebs last year to see a long list of must-try beauty trends we were inspired by, but delve into behind the scenes — between hair and makeup artists, hair stylists and models — and you won't believe your eyes!
We're getting in the thick of it, and we're taking you with us! We will be reporting back to you from over 30 shows throughout the week and for that reason, we have put together a little beauty survival kit we need to get us through. . . OK, it might not be little, but it's a survival kit none the less!
On top of my usual faves, I will be taking a bright lip colour to pick-me-up when I'm looking noticeably tired, a staple nude for creamy, polished-looking lips every minute of the day and a pretty, light pink cream blush to brighten my face whenever I need it. Handy!
It's important to smell amazing, of course, so my signature fragrance for the week is filled with almond powder and white leather — delicious! And I have made sure I'm carrying a mattifying foundation that fits easily in my handbag to touch up my oily t-zone. Lets not forget an eye cream to wake me up and de-puff my eyes throughout the week, as well as my favourite face masks to treat my skin at night. Hint: I don't wash them off!
All of that and my camera, iPhone and laptop and I'm set! Are you ready? We certainly are!
