I just arrived in Paris 24 hours ago and as I was settling down, I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to share with you guys ALL the makeup that I brought on this trip. To be honest… I kinda overdid it even knowing that I probably won’t end up using half these items… but a girl’s gotta have options, right? During NYFW I had the luxury of having a makeup artist with me, but this time I’m all on my own! I’ll be testing and trying out as many looks as possible during this week but I thought to get started I would highlight 5 of my favorites that I know I will consistently use during the next 19 days (and even when fashion month is over).
1. Mac Eyeliner
I’ve been really loving this dark brown liner. It’s dramatic enough for the evening but more suitable to wear during the day. I‘ve currently been obsessed with brown liners, brown shadows, brown everything! Anyway, this liner has super sharp precision so you can make the sharpest of lines if that’s your MO.
2. Mac Lipstick- Chili
You guys know my loyalty to a good ol’ red lipstick. I’ve tried and tested out many, and this is a new one that I’ve been wearing. It has an amazing matte finish which I love, and has great staying power!
3. Giorgio Armani Highlighter
You guys have seen this product here and here. It’s been my go-to when it comes to getting that instant glow for my skin. I usually wear more of a matte foundation during fashion week so the added highlight to the skin makes it really pop!
4. Estee Lauder Palette
I’ve been obsessed with Victoria Beckham ever since the Spice Girls so hearing that she came out with a collab with Estee Lauder made my heart beat a little faster and I knew I had to get my hands on the collection. I’m in LOVE with this palette because it has all the basic colors I need such as: a rich brown, black taupe, ivory, and also a few daring shades such as this blue and green.
5. Tom Ford Nail Lacquer- Toasted Sugar
I’m not going to lie…. I’m really bad at up keeping my nails! I barely have time to get them done so lately, I’ve been carrying a neutral color with me wherever I go. I am absolutely in LOVE with this one from Tom Ford because it’s neutral, but has a bit more of a pink undertone, it matches everything I wear and it’s easy enough for me to apply it myself without having the pressure to make it look perfect. This has been my go-to nail color as of the past month.
