Going to fashion shows, presentations and parties I barely survive Milan Fashion Week, and this year I am also attending Paris Fashion Week for the first time. So ahead lie 2 weeks of planes I need not to miss, days that start early in the morning and parties that end late at night. All this trying to stay awake, running on high heels while keeping a perfect makeup and a radiant skin.
Everyone has their little secrets that help you survive Fashion Week. Some would tell you that the best beauty trick would be drinking a lot of water, some others do meditation and drink herbal teas, while people like me mummify every night with exfoliating products, Supermud and massage oils.
