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.

Italy's shows are known for their va-va-voom beauty looks, so if you could use some help in the makeup department, follow MAC's tweets: the cosmetic brand's makeup artists, who are working on the models backstage, will be sharing their tips and tricks live.
Paris Fashion Week
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.
