You know the type, loud as a motor bike, but wouldn't bust a grape in a fruit fight.

It's nearly that time again that London Fashion Week springs upon us and we think, hold up - i swear it was only five minutes ago we were pondering over camel, sheepskin, capes and chunky knitts? I seriously can not get my head around the pressure and stress the designers must go through, from creating their collection to perfecting it to flawless precision on the runway. For those of that haven't been giving the luxury of tickets to the hottest seats in town (all about Giles S/S 11') there are plenty of other great fashion events happening in September, for starters there is Vogue's Fashion Night Out, but there are quite a few that have been kept under wraps..

Maybelline have announced that during LFW, they will be hosting their very own Pop-up Shop - exciting! The pop-up shop will be in the heart of Covent Garden, which will only be around for a limited time, from the 16th - 26th Sept. This is the perfect opportunity to have a good play with Maybelline products and bag a complimentary make over!

There are many events going on in-store..


Maybelline's pop-up beauty bar will allow you to pick from one of this seasons key looks, created by backstage guru and Maybelline New York's global make-up artist, Charlotte Willer. Be one of the first to get your hands on the products that have showcased on the catwalks of New York Fashion Week and pick what look you'll be daring to wear next season.


Think you could take on Kemp Muhl's famous pout? Strut your stuff past Christy Turlington on the catwalk... Are you the next supermodel that Maybelline will be queuing up for? Come down to the pop-up shop to be scouted by London's top modelling agency. We raise you to the challenge! At this exclusive get-together, top model agency Elite London and Marie Claire will be scouting for future beauty models - so come down on Sunday 19th and Sunday 26th September and find out if you could be the next big thing.


On the 22nd September the pop-up shop will turn into a pop-up beauty college. Created by Marie Claire's prestigious 'Inspire & Mentor' campaign, the expert panel will be able to reveal insider secrets, tips and invaluable skills needed to get into the industry. Come and enjoy a continental breakfast, and the chance to put your questions to the Marie Claire beauty experts. Plus, learn how to create catwalk-inspired looks with Maybelline products. Tickets cost £5 and the one hour events will take place at the following times:

Monday 20th September at 10am and 11am
Tuesday 21st September at 10am and 11am
Wednesday 22nd September at 10am and 11am

How to Get Into Beauty

An invaluable talk for those interested in working in the beauty industry. As part of Marie Claire’s Inspire & Mentor campaign, an expert panel will reveal how they succeeded in their careers. The event will take place on Monday 20th September. Tickets cost £15 and include champagne, nibbles and mini cupcakes.

I love going to events like these in London, right in the heart of the city. See you there?
