Masking Your Way Through Fashion Month
Michela Marra | Friday February 9th 2018
If you’re getting ready for fashion week, take note: nothing eases the stress of an overdose of fashion shows than a facial mask. Masking the perfect pampering to treat yourself to start the day, break between shows, or wind down at the end of the night. Tamu has already stocked up on super yummy products to get her through the fully packed month ahead — and we’ll be backstage at the shows, getting the scoop on all the beauty tips from hair stylists and makeup artists as well as from the models (the original diehard mask fans)!
Sheet masks offer an enormous advantage, because they are soft, easy to remove and don’t require any rinsing. Any product residue that’s left on your face is massaged into your skin so as to facilitate total absorption. Easy, right?
If you’ve got 5-10 minutes of free time during this crazy month dedicated to fashion — we’ll be in New York, London, Milan and Paris — use that time to apply a mask! Your skin will be brighter, moisturized and more compact right away, and you will instantly feel better and ready to work hard in the front row of any show.
