Models always look unbelievably fresh, youthful and beautiful. Of course, these girls are naturally pretty, but a lot of glamour that they exude is due to the wonderful work of makeup artists. Let’s talk about beauty “must haves” that professionals use backstage fashion week:

1) Bioderma Crealine H2o Ultra-mild Non-rinse Face and Eyes Cleanser 250 ml



It’s the product that models and makeup artists swear by. It easily and gently removes all makeup, even great for under eye area and very sensitive skin. It’s very useful backstage, because makeup is constantly applied and reapplied. Bioderma looks like water but makes wonders in cleansing the skin and removing makeup.

2) Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes

This product is extremely useful backstage. It easily removes makeup, mascara and false lashes, doesn’t require rubbing because of it’s gentle texture. Makeup artists always carry these wipes in their makeup kit.

3) L’Oreal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray

This is another must have during fashion week and runway shows. Professional hair stylists constantly stock up on this product. Elnett exists in different strengths, depending on hairstyle and purpose of use. Luckily this product is available at almost all supermarkets and drugstores.

4) Beautyblender

This cute pink egg can blend foundation like nothing else. Fashion week’s makeup artists achieve perfect and flawless skin on models using this “wonder-tool”. If you dampen Beautyblender before applying your liquid foundation, it can give the most perfect coverage with no caking or creasing. It’s one of the secrets of models’ perfect skin!

5) Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler

There are many different brands of eyelash curlers on the market, but one of the best one’s is by Shu Uemura. This “sophisticated machine”, curling your lashes can give your more awake, “eyes wide opened” look. If you invest into it once, it will last you for many years.

6) Dr. Hauschka Day Cream Light, Rose

This cream is very soothing, containing mostly natural ingredients and smells just amazing. When models come on the shows tired or stressed, their skin reflects it too, so makeup artists use this “wonder in the tube” to sooth and moisturise models’ faces before applying makeup. Another great alternative is Weleda Skin Food, all natural nourishing cream for dry and dehydrated skin.

7)MAC Face and Body Foundation

This foundation is one of the favourites of many makeup artists. It stays on, lasts long and looks great.

8) Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream

Cream E
This cream is really multitasking. Not only can it perfectly hydrate the skin of the face, but also makeup artists apply it on the lips, and sometimes even on the eyes, on top of eyeshadow, to create perfect glossy eye look.

9) Shiseido the Makeup Luminizing Satin Face (High Beam White)

This light weight powder creates the most perfect glowing face. When makeup artist dusts this product over a model’s face, her face instantly looks polished.

10) Avene Thermal Spring Water Spray


This amazing spring water spray can be applied either on or under makeup, it gives natural “model glow” and adds wonderful sheen. Using this freshness in the bottle makeup artists create dewy and “glowing” makeup looks.

I hope you found it useful. Do you know some other beauty “must haves” from runway shows of fashion week? Please share your thoughts with me in the comment’s section.
Stay beautiful!
