When there’s a social obligation every night of the week — as will be the case post-Labor Day — not every pre-party prep session can include an $85 blowout at Fekkai. As such, WWD asked a few oft-photographed guests to give us their top tips for getting camera ready without going broke (or just less wealthy).

“Take a hot shower and exfoliate with those great scrubby gloves. Then, Lancôme moisturizing cream.” — Elettra Wiedemann

 

“I listen to Travie McCoy’s ‘Billionaire’ rap song! I heard it first on the car radio in L.A. Now I’ve downloaded it to play. It’s hysterical. It’s the best cheap thrill — better than mascara.” — Jamee Gregory


“I’ve an addiction for cold showers in summer. Otherwise a glass of cucumber or grass juice.” — Gaia Repossi

 

“Baby powder in the roots of your hair — it’s the best dry hair shampoo!” — Harley Viera-Newton

“I hark back to that old chestnut of using Corona Light beer as a ‘setting lotion.’ We are at the beach with lots of humidity, and though I don’t do a ‘set,’ it gives my hair lots of body and shine — doesn’t smell alcoholic.” — Nina Griscom

“The YSL Touche Eclat highlighter on the cheekbones is a great fast pick-me-up!”— Lisa Airan

"Garnier's makeup remover towelettes. They are cheap, smell great and get the job done."— Marjorie Gubelmann
