New York Fashion Week
New York, USA
Fashion news blog StyleList has parked its new Mobile Makeover Bus just outside the Lincoln Center tents (Columbus Avenue and West 65th Street, 12-6 pm, through February 14). Says the site: "Staffed with top makeup artists, the bus will offer mini-makeovers, selected hot looks just off the runway and an eyebrow-shaping station. Refreshments, surprises and some special guests will also pop up throughout the event."
London Fashion Week
Electronics company Canon and The Telegraph have teamed up for a competition that might win you a spot in the photographers' pit at the shows. Email Kate Day at firstname.lastname@example.org with up to three beauty-themed photographs you took by February 16, and you could be shooting top models wearing London's finest designers.

Marc by Marc Jacobs is launching a pop-up nail bar at the Printemps department store (64 bd Haussmann, third floor), which will be in place March 3-5, 3-6pm.
