Sure, we love a good fashion trend as much as the next person (*dusts off Havaianas*), but what we're really about during New York Fashion Week is the beauty. We're talking runway looks, model product recommendations, and all the things an It girl has lined up in her hotel bathroom. You can't blame us though, can you?
To indulge our desire for a good old-fashioned snoop, our favourite influencer Elle Ferguson let us peek inside her NYFW beauty survival kit (she was in New York with Tresemme hitting shows, and peeping backstage beauty tricks). There's natural deodorant, a repairing shampoo, and the perfect matte nude lipstick (among others). For all her best picks, keep scrolling.
"This product (along with the matching conditioner) has been a hair saviour. I’ve certainly put my hair to the test during New York Fashion Week—from natural waves to a teased-out pony, this range keeps my hair healthy and shiny. The shampoo gently cleanses my hair to restore smoothness, whilst the conditioner locks in moisture and protects the hair against breakage."
"The Elle Effect is the perfect golden tan without the harmful effects of the sun. This lightweight, velvety mousse that I formulated is super easy to apply no matter how often you tan. A little glow goes a long way."
"This is an absolute lifesaver for so many reasons. Not only does it prolong my blow dry, it saves my skin from breakouts and stops my tan from transferring. Happy days!"
"Investing in my skin is so important to me, and Olay’s new Regenerist range is incredible at giving my skin the extra boost it needs. Plus, it’s totally affordable, which is a bonus."
"This is one of my all-time favourite beauty finds—a natural, cruelty-free deodorant that actually works! The rose scent is to die for."
"This palette is my favourite at the moment. I use the white shade to highlight, the gold for a warm glow, the bronze to build depth with my tan, and the pink for a peachy hue!"
"I picked this beauty up during NYFW for extra hydration. It’s a natural formula that conditions, moisturises, plumps, and hydrates. It also acts as a great primer before putting on a matte lipstick."
"I love a long-lasting matte lipstick I can take with me whilst I’m travelling. This lip pencil is enriched with vitamin E for a creamy texture, while strong pigments ensure a long-lasting, seamless colour for hours. I usually keep this as an all-day base or build it with another lip color for dimension."
