New York Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week kicks off today, and we’re excited to be in the mix of it all, capturing inspiring street style to share with you all here on the blog! If you’ve ever attended Fashion Week, you’re certainly aware that it’s a high-energy series of events filled with nonstop activity and excitement. If you’ll be in attendance this year, make sure you come prepared! Here are my recommendations for a natural beauty survival kit.
You’re going to be running around from one event to the next, and it’s important to remember to stay hydrated. I always like to keep coconut water like this one from Vita Coco in my bag because it’s incredibly hydrating (with electrolytes and potassium!) and totally natural.
You’ll most likely be meeting tons of new people, shaking hands as you go. I love this lavender hand sanitizer by EO because it’s made with organic ingredients and smells like lavender, which will help keep you calm during crazy times.
Along with meeting new people comes lots of talking. I like to stay fresh with this fresh breath spray from Gaia. It’s made with organic herbs and is surprisingly powerful!
Rose water is a whole bunch of products all rolled into one. It sooths and calms over-heated skin, cleanses pores, reduces redness, eases anxiety, and promotes emotional well-being. I like to spray this one by Heritage Store on my face or hands for a quick, mid-day pick-me-up! (…Or learn how to make rose water!)
Who doesn’t love an all-in-one makeup product? This 3-in-1 color stick by Mineral Fusion is made with natural ingredients and can be used on eyes, cheeks, and lips. Use on your cheeks for a daytime glow and then add a few layers on your lips for a subtle pop of color come nighttime.
Whenever I’m eating on the go, I always like to have toothpicks on hand. These mint toothpicks by Tea Tree Therapy are made with birch wood and infused with natural extracts including peppermint and tea tree oil. Sometimes I’ll pop one in my mouth just because I love the taste.
To be honest, I like to keep a lavender sachet with me whenever possible. I hold it up to my nose and take a deep inhale to calm my mind after a long, busy day. It’s the perfect way to end a crazy, fun, fashion-filled day (or week) in New York.
