It really is all go this week in the beauty world- not only are some of the hottest, newest trends hitting the catwalks in New York (and London this Friday), but there’s a whole host of awesome events and launches going down too. As a true Graziette, we expect your fashion schedule might already be a little bit chocka, as they say, although we highly advise you take note of the following to be perfectly on-trend this week, at least…

Don’t be put off by the green powder- this nifty supplement contains a mind-boggling number of ingredients and is a serious investment for full body beauty.

Get The Perfect Night’s Sleep With Neom

Trouble sleeping? Stressed? You’re not alone- it seems more and more of us are having trouble nodding off, and we sometimes feel like we’re caught in a vicious caffeine and sugar-fuelled cycle which certainly does nothing to help matters when it comes to bedtime. Sound familiar? Breathe a sigh of relief girls, as organic gurus Neom have just the solution. Their latest research shows that there is a direct link between anxiety and sleep, so have conjured up the awesome Tranquillity Sleep Collection- a heavenly blend of English lavender, sweet basil and jasmine- to help you get some zzz. Neom’s fool proof, 3-step sleep routine comprises of a candle, bath and pillow spritz. Get ready for some serious slumber girls!

Ready for some serious eye candy? Watch and learn girls, as Constance Jablonski, Joan Smalls, Liu Wen and Arizona Muse are here and waiting for you!

Nip + Fab Stiletto Fix- A Fashion Week Must-Have!


Whether the next few weeks will see you working the catwalk, running around backstage at shows or prepping for a big night out with the girls, we highly advise you get your pretty paws on a tube of this absolute god-send of a product. All hail Nip + Fab’s Stiletto Fix, £9.95- a fresh and cooling peppermint balm designed to cushion and protect tired feet. In fact, make-up guru Charlotte Tilbury posted a photo of this little green tube on her Instagram yesterday at NYFW and said it was one of her backstage must-haves. Trust us, this really is rather fab, and if it’s good enough for the soles of Cara, it’s good enough for us!  

Marks and Spencer’s Beauty Is A Sell-Out

Don't be deceived by the simple packaging- this 1 minute facial really does pack a punch!

Not only your pit-stop for Percy Pigs, good old M&S have only gone and done themselves seriously proud in the beauty department this week- their newly launched Formula Advanced Skin Solutions Illumin-ATP Radiance 1 Minute Facial (long name, we know) has certainly lived up to expectations by selling out on the M&S website, just days after its launch. Reviews for the new product have been glowing (excuse the pun), with users reporting an impressive post-facial glow in just 60 seconds. We’re expecting a lot of late nights (and early mornings) over the next few weeks so reckon this nifty product might be just the ticket to a lacklustre complexion. While more stock is being rushed to the online shop, the product is still available in M&S stores. But hurry girls, we’re predicting a sell-out pretty soon…

Get Fit For Free With Sweaty Betty

Frame Rave Instructors Holly and Elliot (Sweaty Betty)

As the days get darker and temperatures drop (sob) we really do understand that the motivation to get yourself up, off to sofa and down to the gym might well be lacking. Well girls, look no further than fitness-fashion faves Sweaty Betty who are on hand this autumn to help you get fit for free. This autumn, in association with hip London-based dance studio Frame, Sweaty Betty are offering weekly sessions of a new dance class called ‘Frame Rave’- a high-intensity, 45-minute workout inspired by 80s rave culture, complete with glowsticks and a high-BPM playlist. Want in? From Thursday 5th September and every following Thursday throughout the month, Frame Rave classes will be available at all Sweaty Betty boutiques across the UK. See you there!

Go Behind The Scenes With Calvin Klein and Rooney Mara

There’s nothing more us beauty ladies love than some awesome behind-the-scenes action, so throw in the gorgeous Rooney Mara as well as a brand-spanking new Calvin Klein fragrance and we’re sold! Team Grazia beauty are huge fans of classic beauty Rooney Mara and were over the moon to spy her in this rather awesome behind-the-scenes footage for the brand’s latest fragrance, Downtown. Donned in leather separates and androgynous tailoring, we reckon the edge actress is the perfect face for this feminine, woody scent. Watch the video here to see Rooney in action!
