Lights, camera, catwalk
The scents of hairspray and champagne are mingling in the air and the rev of blow-dryers can be heard for miles. Rosemount Australian Fashion Week (RAFW) begins today and Bh is poised to beam you backstage and beside-runway beauty reports every day.
Which means two things: we'll be on the stiletto-heeled run all week long and we're counting on beauty products built for speed...
I've blogged before about how much time I log on mane maintenance and why investing five minutes in treatments a few times a week saves a whole world of hassle. But even that will be wishful thinking this week. So meet the 60-second saviour I'll be relying on instead: Garnier Fructis' new Instant Melt-In Mask. This creamy, fruit extract-infused wonder does its colour-locking and softening in the shower and immediately – no leave-in time required. And, though intense, it leaves locks as lightweight and springy as a regular conditioner. Time-poor too? Put it on your to-buy list today.
I have already made a diary date to spend a snippet of Wednesday with Clinique's Turnaround 15-Minute Facial. While typing at my desk if necessary. This powerhouse exfoliant delivers the radiance-restoring and revitalising benefits of microdermabrasion, only much faster and with zero redness. Trust me, by mid-week my face will definitely need it.
I'll also need to snooze for seven years, but there'll be Buckley's chance of seven straight hours. Solution: I've just restocked my stash of SK-II Signs Eye Masks. Soaked with antioxidants, line-lifters and peptides, these clever cloth pads soothe sleepy peepers and fake the bright-eyed bounce you don’t feel. Wear one for a few minutes and the hydration hit can last up to 12 hours. This is the secret weapon of almost every die-hard fashionista I know.
Speaking of the secrets of the fashion set, you can get your fix right here. Tune in from tomorrow to get daily RAFW beauty reports, photos and how-tos from the backstage beauty artists. And just to check we're surviving…
