1. I get the gloss for hours and keep my lips hy­drated with the clas­sic but fan­tas­tic El­iz­a­beth Ar­den 8-hour lip pro­tec­tant, £26

2. Hours spent in ex­treme tem­per­a­tures (both hot and cold) cause my face to tighten and lose that morn­ing glow. I al­ways carry Clin­ique Mois­ture Surge spray, £22 for thirsty and tired skin relief.

3. There’s not much room for fresh air es­pe­cially back­stage. Hair­spray, paint, makeup, burnt hair (yes, some­times!) all leave a stale smell in the air. I roll Neom Energy Burst Pulse Point, £8 on my in­ner wrists to up­lift my senses and boost my energy lev­els. Dou­ble whammy!

4. A hair re­fresher never gets the fuss it de­serves. Just a spritz makes re-styling easy and keeps fly­aways at bay. My lat­est favourite is Oribe Côte D’azur Hair Re­fresher, £22 (spacenk.com) it’s well worth the price tag if just for the end­less hair com­pli­ments.

5. Hand san­i­tiz­ers are not sexy prod­ucts, but they’re a com­plete must when it comes to fashion week travel. Go for the handy slim-line Mad Beauty Mois­tur­is­ing San­i­tizer sprays, £2.99 that come in an ar­ray of eye-pop­ping de­signs and colours that you can mix and match with your out­fit.

The long days over FW are sim­ply a given and al­though I can eas­ily touch up my lippy dur­ing the course of the day, reap­ply­ing eye makeup takes skill es­pe­cially on-the-run. How­ever this week, I found the an­swer to look­ing half-de­cent, fully alert and flaw­less from dusk to dawn: Battington lashes.

They are ridicu­lously easy-toap­ply, they don’t drag the eye down or fall down your face half way through the day nor do they feel un­com­fort­able to wear. In fact the beauty of these 100 per cent silk hand­made lashes is you’ll for­get you’re wear­ing them un­til you glimpse at your re­flec­tion and give Min­nie Mouse a run for her money.

Un­like the many false lashes I have tried and tested — too many to men­tion! — Battington lashes can be re-used up to 25 times, that’s less than a £1 a go. Plus there’s a lash to suit ev­ery oc­ca­sion from the sub­tle ‘Kennedy’ lash to the stand­out 3-D multi-layer ‘Bar­dot’ lash. If you’ve ever tried a fake lash and never gone back be­cause of a bad ex­pe­ri­ence, trust me, it’s time to have an­other go. I’m com­pletely hooked.

£25 per set of lashes, ex­clu­sive to Spacenk.com
