"I don’t fancy myself a glam kind of girl when it comes to makeup. The easier the better! I like my makeup to be two things: multifunctional and gentle on my sensitive skin.

Epicuren products work wonders on my oily and acne-prone skin. Especially their Volcanic Clay mask—it purifies, detoxifies and revitalizes my skin.

I’ve been wearing Smiths Strawberry lip balm since I was in middle school. What makes this product great is how well it locks in moisture and banishes dryness; I hardly have to reapply throughout the day.

When it comes to makeup, my eyes are my focal point. I love Benefit’s They’re Real Mascara; it never clumps or flakes. It actually lifts your lashes and makes them appear thicker—like magic."

"My secret to flawless beauty is looking and feeling refreshed. I never leave for NYFW without my 5 secret weapons:

I love my Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion for those long days of running around. The primer keeps my eyeshadow in place without the need for touch-ups, even late into the night.

The antioxidants in my Aesop Parsley Seed Toner are the perfect morning pick-me-up for my skin.

I love making a statement with a great bold lip—my favorite shade is NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Yu."

"A five-hour flight can really suck the moisture out of your skin. I always reach for my EOS Lip Balm for chapped lips and Aquaphor Healing Ointment to hydrate my skin.

You can never be too prepared during Fashion Week. You never know when you might lose a button or break a zipper. I always carry fashion tape and a few safety pins to prevent any wardrobe malfunctions.

A supply of Altoids, Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté Radiant Lipstick and a pair of Illesteva sunnies gets me through the day—no matter how rough it gets."
