New York Fashion Week S/S 2017 Prep and Schedule

Fashion Week Prep

With NY Fashion Week S/S 17 underway, many are prepping for all the upcoming trends for the season to come.  If you are venturing out this year, I thought it would be nice to share some of my favorite prep tips, which will surely make your travels and experience much more delightful.

Beauty Prep

Fashion week is not only about fashion and style, what you decide regarding your beauty regimen is just as important.  Taking care of my skin is extremely vital during the weeks prior to NYFW.  This means I include facial masques, scrubs, and nixing my bad habit of not drinking enough water.  For makeup I stock up on false lashes, bold lip colors, and any makeup I am running low on.

A week or two before fashion week begins, I get a fresh haircut, color, and my mani/pedi. I ensure I pack all my necessary personal makeup gear as well as my essentials for when I am actually working shows.

I like to keep my makeup routine classic.  I usually go with a mauve bronze shadow combo with faux lashes lined with a jet black liner, peach blush, oil control powder for a finish, and a nude peachy pink lipgloss.

My perfume of choice is always something from either Chloe or Prada.

Shoes are usually a classic black wedge heel or sneaker like style for those long show after show makeup looks.

 

Stuart Weitzman  makes a lovely cycle sneaker.  It is one of my go to chic sneaker with a sport-luxe wide elastic band and mesh toe box.  I love to pair them with a soft legging and a boxy sweater during my down time.

NYFW 2017 Schedule

I am so thrilled!  2017 New York Fashion Week kicks off on September 8.  With mixed collections shaking up the fashion world and designs going straight from the runway to our consumers, the line up is surely going to keep us excited.

Which designer is on your radar?
