By Katie Rosseinsky

Ahead of her much-anticipated SS16 show at London Fashion Week, we chatted to fashion designer Holly Fulton about backstage beauty essentials, her favourite scent and the perfect shade of red lippie.

Favourite Nail Varnish

Chanel Le Vernis in Holiday

'When it comes to nail varnish, you can't go wrong with Chanel. This bright orangey-red colour is a bit different and a little awkward, which is why I love it.'

Favourite Moisturiser

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant

'A real classic. I've always got one stashed in my handbag, and use it morning and night.'


Favourite Lipstick

MAC Lipstick in Lady Danger

'I wear red lipstick every day, and own a megamix of shades that I vary depending on how I feel. MAC lipsticks are my favourites - I love this punchy orange-red.'

Favourite Fragrance

4711 Eau de Cologne

'My mother and my grandmother used this cologne. It has an old-school feel to it, but the scent is still really punchy and fresh.'

Favourite Shampoo

Bumble and bumble Straight Shampoo

'I use this straightening shampoo to keep my hair under control, so it ends up more Louise Brooks and less Scottish hedge.'

Favourite Skincare

Simple x Holly Fulton Kind to Skin Cleansing Facial Wipes

'I'll keep these wipes to hand during Fashion Week. They keep skin looking fresh and perky, and are speedy to use - a real bonus when time is tight backstage.'

Favourite Budget Buy

Vaseline Intensive Care Hand Cream

'A cheap and cheerful essential. I always have one of these with me on the go.'

Favourite Mascara

MAC Zoom Lash

'I always go for a mascara that gives plenty of volume and a bit of a curl, too. This one from MAC does the trick.'
