Fashion month is a rush; running back and forth to shows, traveling to new places, not getting any sleep whatsoever. How do you stay looking calm and chic when every force in the universe is sapping your energy?! Thankfully there are a few goodies – beauty and otherwise, that can help you feel your best even when you’re in a stressful situation. Here are the extras that helped us make it through NYFW and PFW,
PHOTOGRAPHER – ALEX COVO | MODEL – NATALIYA PIRO (Ford Women)
CLARINS BEAUTY FLASH BALM – In order to understand why Beauty Flash Balm is an crucial part of any beauty kit you have to experience it for yourself. Try it on the day you’re skin is looking its dullest, drab is and driest and be amazed by the changes you’ll see.
ROYAL APOTHIC HAND CREME – It is easy to forget about taking care of your hands when you’re on the go, but Royal Apothic’s elegant creme makes things a little easier. All you need to do is apply once and you’re blessed with soft, silky hands for hours – a necessity when you’re spending the day shaking hands and swapping business cards.
SKULLCANDY AVIATOR HEADPHONES – Music soothes the savage beast and it makes the disgruntled editor slightly less ornery. Skullcandy’s trendy Aviator style headphones are a gorgeous mix of style and substance – no wonder then that models like Kate Upton, Jessica Stam and Chanel Iman count them as their favorites.
ILLESTEVA SUNGLASSES – Sunglasses are a beauty product – ok not technically, but they do hide a multitude of sins and a beautifully crafted pair like Illesteva’s are a conversation starter. If you were out partying late at Le Bain and simply do not have the time to do an eye mask, put on a pair of Illestevas and you’ll look like a movie star instantly.
TOM FORD BRONZING POWDER – The oversized compact looks chic (Tom Ford’s packaging never fails to impress) and the product itself is just plain good. Our personal favorite shade, Terra has the perfect consistency and provides a touch of subtle bronze to enliven the features and fake a ‘just spent a weekend in St. Tropez‘ glow.
LORAC PRO SHADOW PALETTE – Packing light is key and Lorac’s full set of shadows gives you absolutely everything you need for any look imaginable. A shimmering neutral for day – check, smoky silver for evening – you betcha.
TATCHA FACIAL MIST – Moisturizing hydration in a convenient spray to take with you wherever you go. Perfect for a midday refresher – especially when you need to look your best ASAP.
SKYN ICELAND HYDRA COOL FIRMING EYE GELS – From puffy to perfect in ten minutes, Skyn’s gel patches rejuvenate tired and dried out eyes with a blend of Ginkgo Biloba and Coenzyme Q10. We admit to using these on flights when the recycled air is driving our sensitive eyes crazy.
