Backstage beauty access: PFW Day 1

Access all areas


Best make-up: The futuristic, glossy skin at Kenzo by make-up guru Lucia Pieroni. Achieved my layering Mac Eye Gloss, Silver Pigment and Mixing Medium to give dewy highlights on the cheekbones, and a wash of pearlescent shimmer over the eyes. 


Best hair: The rainbow coloured roots at Maxime Simoens by Laurent Philippon for Bumble and bumble, where each of the models had a bespoke shade applied onto their centre partings using a paintbrush. A genius way to cover up regrowth, we say.


I loved: The backstage signs at Akris, set in the impressive backstage of them all, the Grand Palais.

I ate: Burrata and pomme frites at Hotel Costes, where I bumped into (quite literally) Olivia Palermo and her husband on my way out.

My highlight: Watching the Kenzo show, which was set in a huge skate park on the outskirts of Paris.
