New York Fashion Week is in full swing and if attending shows, you know how hectic it can be. From hair, makeup, skin and nails we’ve got you covered to look front row ready this fashion season!
To keep your hair looking NYC chic with a sleek, all you need is this cool headband from Scunci. Laura Polka, Scunci stylist says, “The best quick tip to look the part for fashion week is to utilize the part you like, middle or deep side and slick down into a low pony or bun. Use hairspray, gel or pomade to give slick shine on the roots and leave the ends free for a different texture. Using a headband like Scunci Comfy Bendable Headband, $3.99, is good too and you can do a half tuck over the pony for a modern style.” Be careful not to over-style your hair with heat tools in between running from show to show. No one wants dry flaky hair, right? Try Philip B. Anti-Flake Relief Shampoo, 7.4 fl oz/$35. Use as a daily treatment shampoo for relief from an oily or dry, flaky scalp. Apply a small amount of PHILIP B Anti-Flake Relief Shampoo to hands and gently massage onto wet scalp. Leave shampoo on scalp for two to three minutes or longer. Gently pull lather through to the ends of hair and rinse well. It leaves hair soft, bouncy and vibrant while giving your scalp instant relief from itching and flaking.
If you want to switch up your do throughout NYFW, then look no further than RPZL hair extensions. Sport a cool ponytail to get some extra length. Fania Dambreville from RPZL, New York’s first hair extension and blowout bar advises, “Use an RPZL Pony ($100, at rpzl.com) to create an instantly gorgeous mid ponytail that gives volume and body. This can also go from day to night by placing the RPZL Pony into a messy bun or a polished top knot bun.”
Prep skin the night before the shows, with Sonia Kashuk’s clay-based Black Mask, $15.99. It contains kaolin to absorb oil and impurities in the skin. Ingredients aid in sloughing off dead skin cells, stimulating cell growth, toning skin, and brightening for a more unified complexion! You’ll wake up looking refreshed and ready to mingle with your fellow fashionistas.
Now that we’ve got your hair and skin covered, don’t forget your makeup! The last thing you want while photogs are snapping away at your street-style is foundation that is running down your face. I have been using the Make Up For Ever ULTRA HD foundation, $43, and love love love how it lasts all day! As the original pioneer of the HD makeup category MUFE continues to redefine and elevate beauty standards with the launch of this foundation.
We often forget how important it is to keep brows in shape but they really do frame your face. One item that can so easily be missed during the fashion week rush is your brows! To avoid this common mishap throw Smashbox’s Brow Tech to Go in your purse for a quick and easy eyebrow touch up!
“Use very light mini strokes to create the brow and not a line. Also build up the brow slowly”, says Umbreen Sheikh, Wink Brow Bar founder.
The double-ended component includes an angled waterproof pencil for precise filling and defining and a soft hold gel with a brow brush applicator to groom brows perfectly into place.
Fight weak, fragile nails this week and avoid dreaded chipped nails with Lauren B. polish and Dual/Base Top Coat.
The Dual/Base Top Coat is quick drying, super-shiny and chip-resistant. This multi-tasker functions as a primer and a sealant in one, giving you a smooth starting point and a brilliant final finish. It’s a crime not to prime. The satiny, fast-drying formula doesn’t simply create a smooth canvas for polish. It also protects your nails against dryness, breakage, staining and peeling, and extends the life of your manicure to boot. Use as a topcoat, base coat or both!
Gorgeous hair, refreshed skin, flawless makeup, and pretty nails? Check, check, check and check! You are all set for the front row!
