In T-minus 3 days and I’ll be in my favorite city, NYC! New York Fashion Week is just magical and I can’t believe I’m getting to go twice in one year. It’s one of those things that you dream about attending but never actually think you will get to go, and here I am, packing for my second one! EEEK, just pinch me!

I’m so excited to be sharing my looks with you next week and I have some fun hair and make up ideas up my sleeves! The beauty products in the picture above are my new ride-or-dies, the essentials in my make up bag. You best believe I’ll be using them to create my NYFW looks/prep my skin and here’s why I love each product! {P.S. I’ve been using these products for over two months now so I was able to work up a really accurate review!}

NARS  VELVET MATTE FOUNDATION STICK

Double Shot of Sass | Five Favorite Beauty Products

This foundation is a medium coverage, matte finish foundation stick. It’s really good for all skin types, I’ve had a hard time finding one that fits the bill for all and I REALLY like this one! The foundation can be applied multiple ways: with fingertips, directly from the stick, or with the included removable Touch-Up Blender, to create various effects. It’s great for touchups through out the day, I can easily throw this in my purse with my lipsticks and I’m good to go.

KORRES GREEK YOGHURT SMOOTHIE PRIMING MOISTURIZER

This is the lightweight answer for heavyweight hydration. I love how smooth these makes my make up and my skin instantly looks plumper and healthier when I use it, and it smells so yummy. The weightless, multiaction formula is packed with probiotics, proteins, and minerals to deeply nourish and smooth skin, while also prepping it for flawless makeup application and all-day wear. Definitely my new favorite primer.

KORRES WILD ROSE VITAMIN C ACTIVE BRIGHTENING OIL

I 100% agree with Allure and it’s Best of Beauty Award! Wild rose oil is nature’s most potent skin brightener with nine times more vitamin C than found in orange juice. This oil is 94.5 percent natural and suitable for all skin types. I like to apply it at night and when I wake up my skin looks energized. Exactly what I want it to look like in the mornings!

CHARLOTTE TILBURY AIR BRUSH FLAWLESS FINISH SKIN PERFECTING MICRO-POWDER 

This powder seriously blurs every single line on your face. I tried it for the first time the last NYFW I attended and I was hooked. Its breathable technology acts like the finest cashmere veil on top of your skin for a bright, illuminating finish. Rose wax and almond oil hydrate the skin throughout the day and enable the powder to blend on flawlessly. Nourishing actives work to soothe and restore skin while light-reflecting ingredients diffuse light as it hits your face.

CHARLOTTE TILBURY UNISEX HEALTHY GLOW

This unisex product is instant magic radiance and hydration in a tube. Imagine that perfect, beachy, radiant, lit-from-within, soft-focus, hydrated beach skin. This is the perfect secret weapon for bringing tired skin to life. I used it this past weekend while we were on the boat just so my skin wasn’t dry and it covered up imperfections really well! A must buy!

Happy Labor Day! Because of Hurricane Harvey, all of my weddings for the past two weekends were canceled and I had the holiday weekend off, the first time a wedding has EVER been canceled. I haven’t had a Saturday off in almost a year, so I made the most of it and got to spend Friday morning with Paul and the weekend at the lake! My best friend Catherine has a house on Canyon Lake and we spent the past two days in the sun and cruising around on the boat. Which resulted in a pretty nice sun burn and a happy heart! After seeing so much devastation in Houston it really was a huge blessing that I got to go out of town for the weekend as I know so many were gutting their homes or in shelters around the city. Having a fun Labor Day weekend definitely wasn’t an option for most, but I’m so thankful that I got to spend it with my people.

Here’s a few cute pics from the weekend 🙂
