3 Everyday Wearable Beauty Looks From NYFW SS16

There are a lot of amazing things I love about living in New York City. From experiencing all four seasons, to 24 hour stores. But definitely on the top of my list is New York Fashion week. I’ve been fortunate enough to attend six seasons already and each one has been a unique experience. This past SS16 season was no different. Between shows, events, and catching up with other bloggers it was a nonstop week. Out of all the things I cover for fashion week, one of my favorite duties is checking out the beauty backstage at the shows. I’ve rounded-up some of the most wearable backstage beauty looks with tips on how you can recreate the look from runway to real life.

Curvy/Hourglass: I love the high-waisted swimsuit trend for this body type. It accentuate the smallest part of the body (the waist) while still highlighting the curves.
