What’s in my beauty bag: LFW survival kit

February is a busy (and exciting) time as the new season of fashion week begins. And with five solid days of back-to-back London backstage shows, 6am wake-up calls and constantly being on the go, this means we need plenty of products to keep us going (and glowing). WGSN’s Senior Beauty Editor Theresa Yee reveals the key products that get her through.

1. Living Proof Healthy Hair Dry Shampoo
6am wake-up calls means there is little time to wash and style my hair in the morning. A dry shampoo is the ultimate fashion week hair essential. A spritz of this product will instantly refresh and add volume to my flat, fine hair. It also smells good too!

2. LOC Vibrant Matte Lipstick in Trouble
A bright lipstick is a fashion week make-up must-have. I adore this new LOC (Love of Colour) Vibrant Matte Lipstick in Trouble from Birchbox, which has just landed in stores this month. This true red tone will perk up my complexion and it’s a great distractor away from my tired eyes, which starts to show halfway through LFW.

3. La Roche-Posay HydraPhase Intense Serum
Backstage is often cramped and hectic with the heat from hairdryers causing my skin to get dry. This lightweight and non-greasy serum is a skin savior and leaves my face feeling fresh, radiant and hydrated.

4. Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara
Early starts and late nights means only one thing – tired eyes! To fake a goodnight’s sleep, this mascara’s lash maximizing properties and strong black pigments gives the illusion of a wide-eyed look.

5. Penhaligon’s Equinox Bloom
This new gourmand scent smells delicious and will be in my handbag for those moments when I need freshening up while racing to and from shows.
