Packing for New York Fashion Week can be quite an ordeal! I obviously need all my day-to-day beauty staples, but one of the crucial things is also anticipating the little things I’m going to need over the course of the week — something as simple as some cleansing wipes for a late night when I don’t feel like taking off my makeup, or a few extra Band-Aids can easily make or break an afternoon!
So here are my cricial packing basics — obviously, my Simple Skincare Vital Vitamin Night Moisturizer  and Cleansing Facial Wipes , along with my favorite Estee Lauder bronzer, eyeliners and shadows, my DIORSHOW mascara and mascara primer, and Makeup Forever HD Finishing Powder! (For a rundown on the makeup I reach for everyday, check back to this post !)
But there are a few extra must-pack items for NYFW in particular! Band-Aids, obviously, and a tube of Neosporin for unruly high heels. Bobby pins, clear elastics, and temporary hair dyes (chalk and Streekers) in case I want to do an edgier look for a night or two!
Throw in plenty of Q-Tips, hair spray, chewing gum, and all my phone, camera and iPad chargers, and I just barely squeezed in a few inches in my suitcase for some clothes!
