MY DAY BACKSTAGE AT NYFW

When the Mary Kay beauty team offers an opportunity for you to get your makeup done, then go backstage at Tracy Reese to cover the beauty and attend the show… You go! Last weekend I hopped on a flight to New York for a quick trip to Fashion Week.

Mary Kay always does it right.  When we arrived late Saturday night, they had sent the cutest care package with a pair of my favorite Cosabella pajamas, a silk sleep mask, a DryBar gift card and all of the best Mary Kay products.

Here is a look into the next day with Mary Kay:

8 AM: Starbucks.

8:30 AM: Respond to E-mails.

9:15 AM: Makeup artist arrives to apply a natural bronzed look.  My favorite products she used were the Mineral Eye Colors,  Lash Intensity MascaraMineral Cheek Color Duo in Juicy Guava and the Gel Semi-Matte Lipstick in Bashful You.

10 AM: Breakfast at the hotel.

11:05 AM: Take outfit photos with Mary.  I wore this light pink rain coatblack jeans and comfortable booties.

12:15 AM: Head backstage at Tracy Reese to cover the Mary Kay beauty inspiration.  The Mary Kay Global Beauty Ambassador Luis Casco created a natural look with metallics, rich bronzes and brown shades.  I loved how the makeup artists emphasized the models lashes to create volume and length with the Lash Intensity Mascara on top and the Lash Love Waterproof Mascara on the bottom lashes… A genius idea I’m going to start copying for smudge-free definition.  The new Mary Kay Limited-Edition Eye Color Palette in Sunlight (launching 2/16) was used both on the eyes and on the cheeks as a highlighter.  The artists finished the looks with spritzes of the Makeup Finishing Spray by Skindinävia.  This fresh face look could go from day to night.

1:20 PM: More Coffee and a protein bar.

1:55 PM: Re-apply lipstick.

2:00 PM: Attend the Fall 2017 Tracy Reese Presentation at 632 Hudson.  The designer was inspired by the the strength and beauty of the feminine spirit.  The collection featured polished wearable pieces.  My favorite look was a chic all black outfit with big gold earrings to match the bronzed makeup.  I also love her current collection here.

3:00 PM: Sort through photos in Uber with Mary.

5:00 PM: AA Flight 2238 from LaGuardia to Dallas.
