Fashion Week Beauty Prep
Earlier this month was Phoenix Fashion Week, and as you can imagine, I was a combination of excited and ecstatic. I love a good runway show, and even more, I love a good red carpet photo opp. The week leading up to the event, I made a list so I could stay organized and be sure to have a stress-free week. My list looked something like this:
FRIDAY NIGHT LOOK – Wear Eloquii’s Ruffle Shoulder Dress – Eye look: winged liner, big lashes, nude lips – Minimal, earthy Bling
SATURDAY NIGHT LOOK – Rock that Monif C jumpsuit – Brown Smokey Eye, contour on fleek – Hair down and pin straight
TO DO – At home facial (moisturizing!) – Root Touch Up – Pick up new deodorant
When it comes to getting ready for an event, I like to color my hair at the very last minute, making sure it’s perfect and without a lick of regrowth. I always keep my hair the same shade so that damage stays to a minimum. I’ll admit it, I have wimpy hair! I picked Clairol Natural Instincts in Dark Warm Brown (perfect for my medium-light skin tone and dark eyes). I especially love the Natural Instincts line because the chemical-y smell is SO minimal. In my small bathroom, the smell of hair dye chemicals can get so overwhelming, but Clairol has somehow managed to minimize the smell!
I also snagged a bottle of Herbal Essences Color Me Happy Conditioner because – let’s face it – we want that color to be as bright and shiny for as long as possible! I’m also a sucker for packaging (as you know) and the happy pink bottle looks cute in my shower.
Last on my to-do list was pick up a new deodorant. Any good Phoenician will tell you that there isn’t a stick in the world that can stand up to our summers. Allow me to introduce you to the chupacabra of deodorants! Secret’s Clinical Strength is the ONLY deodorant I will use, ever. I swear by this stuff.
