Fashion Week Fatigue

Fashion Week Fatigue

This LFW, it’s been a pleasure being one of Maybelline’s ambassadors for the season. I’ve been introduced to some of my ultimate new must have products, and I’ve had the opportunity to take a bit of a different approach to fashion week as a whole, reporting live from backstage at a few of my favourite shows such as Joseph and Ashish.

It’s given me a chance to be a little more comfortable in my sartorial choices as running around backstage at a fashion show is no mean feat, but when you get to have such a close encounter with the preps backstage, it gives you a whole new appreciation for what you see at front of house, and Maybelline’s director of make up, Sharon Dowsett has created some incredible looks for the shows this season.

I have to say I’ve personally become addicted to two Maybelline products in particular throughout the week, the baby skin fatigue blur in apricot is my new go-to for when I’m not in the mood for full on make up (which is always), and the Master Graphic eyeliner has officially allowed me to be able to do a flick without having a nervous breakdown.

Thank you so much to my girl Carrie for shooting these images of me playing around with my favourite Maybelline products at The Apartment.

Tonight saw the launch of the highly anticipated Harrods Shoe Heaven, a beautifully renovated space dedicated to all of our favourite shoe brands. I’m very excited to be sharing images of the beautiful Louis Vuitton space with you all.

As a proud friend of the brand, I will also be sharing some of my favourite shoes from this collection over on Instagram, as well as images of the exclusive pair designed especially for the Harrods Silver Linings collection, which you can be seen below.

Backstage Pass

This season at London Fashion week brings a new and exciting collaboration to the forefront of Five Five Fabulous, as I announced on Instagram a couple of days ago, we will be partnering with beauty giant, Maybelline New York as an official ambassador, reporting live from backstage at a few of our favourite shows, as well as sharing some of our beauty moments on Instagram for the next few days.

Yesterday I went backstage at Joseph to capture the minimal yet striking look that director of make up at Maybelline, Sharon Dowsett was creating. A fresh look with plenty of focus on the brows was the brief, and Dowsett notes baby lips and the master shape brow pencil as her hero products to create this. The fresh faces of the models was the perfect counterpart to this clean and neutral collection.
