Fashion Week is all about — you guessed it — fashion, but it wouldn’t be the same without the gorgeous beauty looks to go along with the clothes, from the models on the runway to the attendees in the audience. But if you’re going to any of the fashion weeks around the world, it can be hard to know what to pack in your beauty bag for a full week of runway shows, events, dinners, and afterparties.
Celebrities, influencers, and fashion industry darlings often offer a behind-the-scenes look at their process online, and we were lucky enough to have Militza Yovanka recently let us in on her personal beauty faves to get her through Paris Fashion Week, as the style maven and digital creator is no stranger to traveling while also serving great looks. Read on for the beauty picks that work just as well in Paris as they do in your own beauty routine.
Beauty Magazine: What's your favorite thing about Fashion Week beauty?
Militza Yovanka (MY): I love the fact that during Fashion Week, makeup gets more colorful and dramatic and you can see that everyone gets a little more experimental, trying new trends that they [otherwise] wouldn’t usually try.
BMAG: Which runway trend has become a staple in your routine?
MY: Model skin! I love how no matter how extravagant some runways are, the model's skin always looks so natural and glowy. I love that.
BMAG: What did you use to get your skin together for the week?
MY: The L’Oréal Paris Revitalift 1.5% Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum and the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift 1.5% Hyaluronic Acid + 1% Caffeine Eye Serum. it’s the best combo to avoid creasing during the day and [to have] a healthy looking complexion.
BMAG: What’s one makeup staple that you keep with you at all times?
MY: The L’Oréal Paris Infallible Up to 24H Fresh Wear Foundation in a Powder— it’s amazing to touch up your makeup during the day and keep the complexion looking flawless.
BMAG: What's your newest beauty obsession that you think everyone needs to get into?
MY: Glossy lips! The L’Oréal Paris Infallible 8 Hour Pro Lip Gloss is the perfect product to get both a super intense color and a high glossy finish.
BMAG: If you could only accentuate your eyes, lips or face for the rest of your life, which one are you choosing?
MY: It would be my eyes., a little mascara goes a long way in my opinion and my all time favorite would be the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara.
