LFW is just around the corner and if you're lucky enough to attend, keep in mind that when it comes to what you bring along - less is ALWAYS more! Sure, staying selfie/paparazzi ready all day long can be a pain, but it doesn't mean you need to overload your clutch.
Need some tips on how to narrow down the contents of your bag to powder room essentials only? Read on...
1) If your foundation makes you look like a clown when worn for a prolonged period of time, you need to either A) Invest in a better foundation or B) take along blotting paper and/or face powder you can rely on!
Look to NYX Matte Blotting Paper or Benefit The POREfessional: Agent Zero Shine to soak up grease buildup without damaging your make-up throughout the day. OR, you can bring a compact face powder like Clinique's bestselling Superpowder Double Face Powder for a mattifying effect.
2) A highlighter/bronzer duo such as Charlotte Tilbury's Filmstar Bronze & Glow palette is perfect for touch ups or sculpting your look come evening. Other useful beauty tidbits include a small tin of clear lip balm (easily used to hide patches of dry skin when you're out and about) and a high impact mascara.
3) In terms of lip colour, you'll want something that stands out but is long lasting without drying your lips. Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte Shine offers a glossy coat but stains your lips with a painterly effect shine.
4) If it's no make-up" make-up you're after (think Alicia Vikander's barely there make-up look), moisturiser is an absolute must but consider wearing and taking along with you a primer made for the cameras, such as This Works' In Transit Camera Close-Up. It smooths patches of coarse skin and makes your pores appear almost non-existant so you'll have all those around you wondering what your secret is!
