Magdalena Frackowiak on her Makeup Must-Haves Backstage at Issa!

23 February 2012 by

In a crowded backstage area at the Issa show, where everyone was debating over Kate Middleton will arrive, Grazia Daily caught up with mega model Magdelena Frackowick. She's one of the biggest and best known models around and it’s safe to say that Magdelena has walked every catwalk worth walking - and probably about a million times over - so who better to ask for some beauty advice...

GRAZIA: What are your hero products?

MAGDELENA:I have always used loads of Japanese brands like SKII and Kanebo, but I also think that it’s really important to keep mixing up the routine so that my skin doesn’t get too used to anything. I love Avene Repair Cream nad Vitamin E Capsules which you burst and put on your face.  Avene Eau Thermale Spray is brillaint too.  Oh and I swear by Chanel Makeup Remover.

GRAZIA: And in terms of makeup, what are your faves?

MAGDELENA: I always head to YSL for red lipsticks, because I feel that they do the best.  I’m obsessed with Clinique Mascara and Chanel Vitalumiere Foundation.  YSL Touche Éclat for under my eyes and I have light brows so I love MAC eyebrow pencil in Fling – it’s the perfect light brown.

GRAZIA: Which of the autumn/winter 2012 shows has been your favourite so far?

MAGDELENA: Alexander Wang – it was so cool but Im also looking forward to Tom Ford.

GRAZIA: What trends will you be working this summer?

MAGDELENA: Lots of prints! Isabel Marant pieces mixed with floaty gypsy prints and plenty of second hand buys.
