Koh Gen Do Cleansing Spa Water ClothsKoh Gen Do – Cleansing Spa Water Cloths

These pre-moistened cotton wipes are the perfect makeup remover and skin refresher. They help to cleanse, protect, and nourish the skin. The wipes are infused with six essential herbs (rosemary leaf, sage leaf, lavender, artemisia princeps leaf, perilla ocymoides leaf, and ginger root) which help to refresh and clean the skin. These make a quick makeup change effortless and are the perfect tool to help you go from day to night. Find them at Sephora.

Burberry Kisses LipstickBurberry Kisses Lipstick – Military Red – No. 109

Firstly, you can never go wrong with a classic red lip at NYFW. What’s brilliant about Burberry’s Kisses Lipsticks is that they’re buildable. One application leaves a sheer pop of colour, and three applications is full on colour. It’s a great lipstick to create different looks with and it’s also perfect for those that aren’t necessarily comfortable rocking the full on red. The best part about these lipsticks are that they smell delicious with hints or rosehip tea and lavender. Find them at Holt Renfrew and Sephora.

Makeup Forever Water Blend Face Body FoundationMakeup For Ever – Water Blend Face and Body Foundation

There’s nothing better than flawless skin, especially when you’re amongst some of the most flawless people in the world. Might as well fit in, right? This water blend foundation is a very lightweight water-gel formula that sits seamlessly on the skin. It’s buildable as well and can be left lightweight for a dewy daytime look or matte for the full-coverage effect. It’s perfect for all skin types and available in twenty shades. Find them at Sephora.

Smashbox Photo Finish Primer WaterSmashbox Photo Finish Primer Water

There’s nothing worse than wearing makeup all day, looking and feeling flawless and then looking in the mirror at the end of the night and realize your makeup is everywhere it shouldn’t be. This is why the photo finish primer is so necessary to get you through a packed day of back to back shows. Free of silicone and alcohol, this primer absorbs into skin flawlessly and allows for perfect makeup application. It is long lasting and locks your makeup in for over twelve hours. This is the perfect product to keep in your purse and give your face a quick refresh throughout the day. Find it at Sephora and Shopper’s Drug Mart Beauty Boutique.

Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Waterproof MascaraGiorgio Armani – Eyes to Kill Waterproof Mascara

Mascara really makes an eye pop, whether it be one coat or three. This particular mascara is formulated with exclusive micro-fil technology, giving your eyelashes that full fringe effect. We think a waterproof product is an especially good choice for a long day. This will ensure there aren’t any smudges or blotches keeping your lashes fresh the entire day, plus the oversized full brush makes for an easy and smooth application. Find this product at Holt Renfrew.

Nirvana BourbonElizabeth and James – Nirvana Bourbon

The newest scent from Elizabeth and James is the perfect scent for a fashion-filled week of fun. The scent is sophisticated, sexy and light while exuding a certain air of confidence, combing notes of vanilla bourbon, oakwood, anda hint of tuberose. This sultry smell is sure to make an impression.

HAPPY NYFW EVERYONE!
