Model Secrets: Olivia Arben Reveals How She Gets Fashion Week Ready

The hectic schedule of a successful model can wreak havoc on your skin. I chat to international model Olivia Arben about her Fashion Week secrets – plus, a step-by-step guide to getting her look…


What is your Fashion Week beauty routine?

Every morning I de-puff my face using a jade roller by Nurse Jamie which really works and makes my cheekbones pop. During Fashion Week I step it up by double cleansing in the morning and applying an Erborian sheet mask before bed.

What are your favourite products for travel and a hectic lifestyle?

I like to refresh my skin with a spritz of Mario Badescu rose water during flights or between shows, and I wear Bobbi Brown face base SPF50 and Erborian CC cream as they are moisturising and light but still provide good coverage.

How do you look after your health?

I make a lot of simple meals from scratch in order to avoid the salts and preservatives in ready meals, and
I pre-prepare lunches for work. I also often swap out red meat for leaner meats like turkey which contains less fat and is better for cholesterol. And I make sure to always stay hydrated.
