How Do You Do Your Makeup When You're Going to Fashion Week?
Our NYC beauty editor will be spending the next eight days interviewing the best beauty professionals in the business. And they will be judging her makeup. (Fun, right?) Here's how she's stepping up her look
Each morning I spend exactly seven minutes applying tinted moisturizer, pink blush, black liner, and a few coats of mascara. The result is pretty enough, but it's exactly the same. Every. Single. Day.
But for New York Fashion Week, my go-to routine isn't going to cut it. Of course I want to appear polished and professional when I'm backstage doing interviews, but I also want to look like I know what's going on in the beauty world trend-wise. After all, these are the top makeup artists and hairstylist in the business -- they're the ones who create the trends. I don't want them to think I wasn't paying attention last season.
Skip ahead to see how I'm doing my makeup and how to get the look.
While I want a look that's cooler than my usual snooze-fest makeup, there's one other requirement: It has to last. During Fashion Week, there will be days when I'm backstage at 7 a.m. and then swinging by an after-party at 11 p.m. -- with barely any time in between to fix my face (or, sadly, take off my heels).
So I've come up with a look that's fun, and I'm using products that are proven to stay put. What do you think -- will the pros be impressed?
