FOTD on Location: A Look for London + What I Wore

Greetings from London!  I am honored to have been included in a string of Burberry Beauty events during London Fashion Week (more on this forthcoming) and am having a ball exploring a city that is rife with history, incredible architecture and brilliant style.  After a full day with Burberry, we now still have two more days to pack in as much sightseeing as humanly possible! 
In the meanwhile, I wanted to share the beauty look I’ve been embracing while abroad…pared down, long lasting and oh so easy to create (in less than 7 minutes I might add), it utilizes some favorite beauty products as well as a couple new key discoveries; I also include a glimpse at key style elements I’m wearing as we run all over town.
Kindly scroll on for more details, swatches and images of the products in action as well as a nod to style and the Bottom Line…

Ingredients for the look.

//  Product Breakdown // As always, I am opting for an effortless, neutrals-drenched look that lasts the ENTIRE day.

Window-lit swatches.

The following images reflect all products in action in indoor window lighting…

Capturing Buckingham Palace.
As we traverse the breathtaking city of London, you can basically be guaranteed to find me in the pose above…there is simply too much to capture so my phone is essentially glued to my hand!

// STYLE // During this entire week in town, I am opting for a casual yet polished uniform of denim, silk, booties and a classic coat.

Last look.

Bottom Line: I hope you enjoyed this FOTD on location and would love to hear which products caught your eye!  What are your must-haves when traveling? Do tell!
Good things ahead, including the second installment of my London travel diary (including some major newness from Burberry Beauty…in the meanwhile, keep abreast on my Instagram where I am posting multiple times a day!), an up close look at the latest from Sisley-Paris and a fresh video (that I am currently in the midst of editing). 
I hope your week is going well thus far…xx,
–The Beauty Professor

    Hope you're having/had a wonderful time in London. Definitely one of the world's leading cities. Aren't Equipment shirts the best? Love your handbag, who's the maker?
