We don’t know about your week, but it’s been a pretty busy one here on the Grazia beauty desk and we just cannot wait for some serious slumber! What’s more, fashion season is seriously revving up right now (NYFW started yesterday and London commences next week…eek!) so there really couldn’t be a better time to arm yourself with some seriously hard-working beauty goodies to give yourself a helping hand. In preparation for this most stressful time of the year, we’ve pulled together some of the hottest products out there to ensure you’re looking your best at all times. Bring on the weekend girls!

Butter London Backstage Basics, £33

Want model-worthy nails? Look no further than this clever little kit from manicure maestros Butter London. Complete with nail file, top coat, base coat and nail polish remover, your nails will be good to go before you can say ‘Fashion Week’! Oh and did we mention that the nail polish remover smells of baby powder? We’re sold.

Erb Eastern Treat Body Oil, £24

There’s something about the scent of jasmine which never fails to induce a state of total calm in our stressed out lives, so we reckon this gorgeous body oil is just the ticket for the hectic month ahead. With jasmine to soften and sooth, mint to balance the skin and ease stress and sesame oil to nourish any dry spots, this is an all-round winner in our beauty books!

Victoria’s Secret Victoria Eau De Parfum, £56

Come autumn, every Graziette needs a new fragrance, so do your bathroom shelf justice with this beautiful new perfume from underwear gurus Victoria’s Secret. A blend of red berries, crème brulee and rose, this is one gorgeous scent that will get heads turning wherever you go. Be warned, girls!

Benefit they're real, £19.50

'I was feeling pretty worse for wear the other day and wasn't really up for a full look. I dabbed on some concealer, a little blusher and Benfit's they're real mascara. I've been wearing it on top of my eyeko so hadn't  noticed much difference, but when I wore it alone I finally realised what all the hype was about. My lashes were super long and I was suddenly bright-eyed. Now I understand why it's Britain's biggest seller.'

Chanel Cream Blush, £27

'Since the start of summer I've been using Chanel's apricot powder blush. The dainty packaging is super chic and the pigment striking but sheer, so it's great for the days I yearn for that Gallic no make-up look. Chanel's new cream blush Is exactly the same but cream. A small amount dabbed on the top of my cheekbone suddenly brings my face to life. It looks natural and gives a fresh flush that could only otherwise be achieved after a run or before the eyes of a loved one.'

HD Brows Palette, £17.99

'I'd rather leave the house without my shoes than my brows! A well defined brow is a thing of marvel. HD Brows brow palette is amazing for creating amazing definition which lasts all day... and night if you wish! It doesn't budge in the slightest, and the angled rush is really good.'

Vaseline Paint The Town, £3.49

Now, now, this is exciting for a rather dreary Friday morning. A limited edition Vaseline tin, you say? Indeed, ladies! We know it’s only September, but there’s something about this red-tinted balm (with spicy scent to boot) which just oozes glamour and, dare we say it, the festive season. Although this will bring a hint of glamour to your everyday lives until Christmas (we’re already counting down the days), be sure to stock up now for a perky pout come December! In the meantime, this will definitely keep our smackers in tip-top condition during the madness of LFW…

Pantene Pro-V Youth Protect BB Crème, £4.49

That’s right ladies- BB cream for your HAIR! Get ready for a seriously flawless, frizz-free finish with this much-anticipated Pantene product coming straight to a bathroom shelf near you… this weekend! We’ve already fallen head over heels for this light, leave-in formula, and know you will too.

Carita Intensive Lift Firming Day Cream, £130

OK, so this is quite a beauty splurge, but a) it’s the weekend, and b) you get what you pay for, we always say, so arm yourself with this seriously luxurious cream before the weekend’s out. The gorgeous pale-pink cream melts into skin to inject a serious hit of moisture as well as a winning 3D lifting and firming effect. What’s more, we’re loving the soy and sweet almond scent. Pop this one on your wish list girls!
