Are You London Fashion Week Ready?
Let the fashion madness begin; London Fashion week is almost here! In this blog post, Secret Spa have compiled tips and tricks to help you survive the week. From make-up essentials, to practical items like a portable charger, Secret Spa have got you covered! We also recommend starting your glamour prep by booking one of our professional make-up artists and hairstylists via our app or website: www.secretspa.co.uk
Make-Up Setting Spray:
Setting spray is the perfect secret weapon to keep your make-up looking fresh during London Fashion Week. Setting spray is made to prevent all makeup including foundation, eye shadow and lipstick from creasing, smudging or fading. Most setting sprays go on much like hairspray: in a fine mist. It should be applied after completing a full face of makeup, whether it’s your regular minimal routine or a look that is more elaborate. We recommend trying the following sprays; MAC Studio Moisture Fix, Clarins Fix Make-Up Mist, Laura Geller Set-In-Stay Make-Up Setting Spray
Your Favourite Lipstick:
Your favourite lipstick is a must for feeling glamorous. Dior Rouge Dior in Poison is trending massively at the moment and is the perfect staple if you want to create a striking image. Alternatively; always keep a lip balm handy! We are currently loving the Dr PawPaw lip balm range; the best selling multi-purpose balm is a lifesaver for lips.
The pressure of looking your very best at Fashion Week can equal a very heavy make-up bag. However, the Instant Look Palette by Charlotte Tilbury is the perfect companion for a fabulous on-the-go touch up.
Remember that water is your best friend. Whilst attending many fashion shows, staying hydrated is vital. If you forget to pack water, most designers usually offer a free bottle of H2o inside their goodie bags.
Portable camera/phone charger:
Nothing is worse at Fashion Week than a dead battery whether it’s your phone or camera. Make sure you don’t miss out on the opportunity to capture and share your experience on social media by packing a portable charger. Take a look at this fashionable portable charger, here. We swear by them!
Beat the British Weather:
Take an umbrella because this is England, and the weather is never what the weather man predicts.
London Fashion Week is a great opportunity to meet people from the industry and other like-minded creatives. A model scout, an agent, bloggers, photographers, press, marketers. It’s always best to be prepared. We suggest having them tucked inside a cool card holder so you’re ready for mingling.
In our next blog post, we look forward to sharing with you all our celebrity looks from London Fashion Week; stay tuned!
