The Fashion Week Survival Guide: Beauty Tips & Tricks

The Mercedes Benz Fashion Week (aka New York Fashion Week) starts today, and we know that if you’re an attendee, having beauty ammo is just part and parcel of the drill.

Here are some of our key picks for surviving Fashion Week that will leave you feeling as energized and ready to tackle it all (coffee is a given…we just figured you knew that):

Foot Petals

Foot Petals: Although the saying goes that everyone must suffer in the name of fashion, your Blahniks’ insoles can be dressed with the softest material on earth. Make sure to pad your heels with Foot Petals and glide like Sandra Bullock in Miss Congeniality. $6.95-12.95 at

Wonder Woman

Cosmetics Cases: One can never have too many of these, especially to stash your emergency quick fixes, blotting papers, eyeliners and ten million brushes. We love the cases by M.A.C. — the new Wonder Woman collection. With three glinting shades to choose from (red, blue and gold), your makeup case will be as blinged out as you are during Fashion Week.

Clark's Botanicals

Lip Moisturizer: One can never have too many lip moisturizers (that’s like saying one can never have too many friends). Your BFFs can be clear as in Carmex, or tinted like Clark’s Botanicals and Clinique’s Chubby Sticks. Just don’t leave home without some, ok?

Pacifica Solid Perfume

Fragrance: Whether you’ll wear your Stella McCartney Solid Perfume Necklace, or carry Pacifica’s adorable Solid Perfumes (they are as cute as baubles here, and will remind you of the warmth of the tropics).

Have a lovely, painless Fashion Week to all those attending. And if you’re not, don’t worry! Watch all the Lincoln Center shows LIVESTREAM here.
