New York Fashion Week is underway! With events across the city from morning to night, showgoers are often hard-pressed to find a moment to themselves. To help you stay organized and prepared, we’ve compiled a list of essentials to get any fashionista through the week.
Givenchy Beauty’s “Mat & Blur” stick eliminates excess shine and softens imperfections. Use it as a mattifying primer before applying foundation and carry it in your purse for on-the-go touch ups. Its pink shade is universally flattering on every skin tone, so you’ll be street style photo ready in no time!
A quick fix-all for the havoc winter weather can wreak on skin, Bobbi Brown’s No.57 Skin Salve can be used on the face, hands and lips. Made from a combination of moisturizing shea butter, beeswax, carrot and licorice extracts, the concentrated treatment works like a bandage, creating a barrier while the skin repairs itself—so when your new designer friend goes in for a handshake, you won’t have to worry about dry, chapped skin.
Though we’d all like the time to sit down and eat three full meals a day, Fashion Week craziness often gets the best of our schedules. Luckily, The Super Elixir (founded by model and fitness guru Elle Macpherson) has you covered with these travel-sized packs of protein powder that can be added to any drink. Flavored with raw Peruvian cacao, this vegan-friendly formula is enriched with nine essential amino acids, Vitamin B to fight stress (running around the city takes its toll!) and digestive enzymes to boost your metabolism.
A quick spritz of SACHAJUAN’s hair perfume will instantly refresh staticky, limp hair. Its fresh, floral blend with top notes of green apple, peach and rose mixed with base notes of cedar wood and white musk will have you feeling—and smelling—chic in no time. The formula is gentle enough to be used as a body spray, too.
A healthy flush immediately makes any face glow, no matter how much your makeup has rubbed off throughout the day. Don’t be put off by Lipstick Queen’s mysterious black-colored blush—it turns into a semi-sheer berry hue that adapts according to your pH and skin tone. Just pat it on with your fingertips and you’re good to go!
