MY REAL-LIFE NYFW ESSENTIALS

NYFW has come and gone and if there's any key takeaways I have from the experience, it's that less is more when it comes to beauty that needs to keep you going all day. Nobody wants foundation that settles into fine lines, smearing eyeshadow, or harsh makeup. You'll most likely be running from show to show, so it's important to bring out the big-guns, but to keep it simple as well. 

I of course prepped with the creme de la creme of my skincare stash so that I didn't need too much covering up. This means I used a mask multiple times the week prior to ensure a smooth and glowing complexion, and the one that's gentle enough on my skin to use more often is the Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask. I stuck to the same potent, yet unfussy routine that week, moisturizing with La Prairie Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Emulsion. It's such an amazingly effective, yet lightweight and non-greasy cream if you are looking for a special occasion skincare item to add to your routine. 

To take with me on-the-go, I edited the essentials I needed to take with me to a very small few. I never touch-up much anyway - no matter how many items I'm lugging around with me. Basically, I tried to be more realistic about it as to avoid carrying a handbag that weighed as much as a bag of bricks. I prefer not to powder and cake up my complexion mid-day, but instead, to refresh and add life back with a bit of cream blush and highlighter. My current favorites for the ultimate natural glow are RMS Lip2Cheek in Smile (dabbed on with fingers, also a great multi-tasker) and RMS Living Luminizer

Of course, a neutral and moisturizing lipstick option is a must. I brought along my Burberry Lip Mist in Field Rose. A top-up of the scent du jour is always in order as well and I have been loving the Tom Ford Fleur de Portofino - enjoying the last bit of summer scent while I can.

What would you, or did you, bring to NYFW with you?
