Fashion Week is coming -- here are our beauty essentials
Here’s a secret: Fashion girls don’t wash their hair every day. You know that tousled, Shoreditch cool-girl look? That usually settles in on day three-ish of dry shampooing.

If gel nails intimidate you (removal is kinda traumatizing), go back to basics with a really effective topcoat. A layer of this each day will extend the wear and shine of your mani.

A really good BB cream is key for a few reasons. One: You’ll be in a hurry and grateful to consolidate your skincare and makeup routine into a single step. Two: Judging from the sweltering sun last year, you’ll need an SPF of at least 30. Three: As the week—the parties, the poor diet, the free-flowing champagne, etc.—rages on, the more coverage you can get, the better. My fave is Kiehl’s—it does everything.

 
KIEHL’S SINCE 1851

I’ve already waxed lyrical aboutmy fave liquid eyeliner, but this long-stay formula is also top in my makeup arsenal. The best part: So many color options to choose from beyond basic black.

You’ll be tired after those long nights of partying…er, working, and you may have upped the cosmetics application for the high-profile week. Opt for a nourishing and gentle face cleansing cloth to moisturize while wiping those yucky impurities off your skin.
