Two days to go until London Fashion Week kicks off (yup, we're counting the seconds...) so the Grazia beauty team are busy bagging their hot new buys and channelling their favourite S/S ‘09 looks ready for the whirl of shows. Oh, and finishing our pages for this week's issue too!

I'll be making a few simple updates this LFW to my look.....1) I'll be investing in Revlon Lipstick Super Lustrous Lipstick in Cherries In The Snow (£7.13; http://www.revlon.com/) – a pinky, cherry shade that's much more S/S ‘09 than red. 2) I'll need a new fashion week fragrance, the new Jil Sander Style Spring scents are top of my list and 3) I've re-discovered MAC Face & Body Foundation in C1 (£22.51; http://www.maccosmetics.co.uk/) – I'll be taking this everywhere with me to keep my skin looking fresh and dewy.

I'm so over winter already so I'll be taking inspiration from House of Holland's Southern California sun-kissed models. The secret behind the look was sweeping bronzer on the bridge of the nose and temples so I'll be stocking up on Becca's Mineral Bronzing powder (£30; http://www.beccacosmetics.com/) and applying in specific areas for the ultimate healthy glow.

I am absolutely in love with the look from the S/S ‘09 DVF show – tanned, glowy, nude lips, tousled hair and very LA. I'll be going to the shows armed with my Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick, ( £26.43; http://www.bobbibrown.co.uk/) and the new Becca Sheer Lip Tint in Yasmina (£21; http://www.beccacosmetics.com/). I might even be working some drawn-on freckles – but I'm not going to admit to it!
