If you follow me on social, you might have seen a thing or two about New York Fashion Week recently. It’s winding down now, but I’ve been having a blast for the past week attending all the best shows and learning some amazing behind-the-scenes secrets from some of the most talented artists in the beauty biz. (More on that later!)
In the meantime, I wanted to share some of my absolute must-have products for surviving fashion week. As die-hard fashionistas know, NYFW is just the beginning of this season’s fashion extravaganza. So, if you’re jetting off to the next runway in London, take a peek at my must haves list below! Couldn’t have survived NYFW without these…
External Phone Charger
Seriously, if you do not yet have one of these, get one now. I got mine on Amazon for like $20 and it has been an absolute life saver in terms of keeping my necessary electronics juiced up when I need them the most. Snapchat sucks a lot of battery power, you guys.
These are my lifeline for making sure my breath is fresh at all times. They’re also great for a quick way to perk yourself up if you’re nodding off from exhaustion. #truth
Urban Decay Makeup Setting Spray
Sometimes there is just no time for touch-ups and your look has to last all day. I’m obsessed with the Urban Decay setting sprays – especially the All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray. Legit lasts for 16 hours so your makeup will last from early morning call time to late night show to the after party.
You’ve heard that you need a sturdy heel or a flat. You’ve shopped and shopped. You’re convinced that you found the perfect pair. You think your shoe selection is fine, but you’re wrong. Even the chunkiest heels can create mean blisters if you’re darting from show to show for a week straight (especially if they’re new and not properly broken in). Do your footsies a favor and keep some Bandaids in your bag.
Ardell “Babies” False Lashes
The absolute easiest way to instantly up your glam is to add a pair of falsies to any look. You could be free of any other speck of makeup and the Ardell Babies lashes will legit up your makeup game with little effort. They look natural thanks to the awesome flexible band. They’re definitely on my fav lashes list!
Cottonelle® Flushable Cleansing Cloths with CleanRipple® Texture
Even the chicest shows (I’m looking at you, Jeremy Scott) sometimes require port-a-potty situations due to the massive amount of attendees. So, take it from me and do not get caught off guard in a situation where you’re out of toilet paper! Luckily, I had some Cottonelle® Flushable Cleansing Cloths with CleanRipple® Texture to keep me clean and fresh in all the sketchy restroom situations I encountered this week. Cottonelle® with CleanRipple® Texture keeps you clean so you can feel confident enough to strut your stuff, whether down the runway, the red carpet or the city streets. It’s designed to clean better, so you’re clean and confident enough to go commando. Just keepin’ it real, folks.
