ONE DAY. ONE FOUNDATION.

You may remember seeing some of these images on my Instagram. I loved this story so much, I had to share it in detail for you here. I had a full day in Laura Mercier’s Ultra Flawless Fusion foundation, testing out what made it so unique and innovative. I was always a girl who only wore concealer on my T-Zone…because who wants to look like they’re wearing a lot of makeup? I found it super lightweight, extra smooth, and easy to use. I had just finished my first bottle of this magical potion-of-a-foundation yesterday, reminding me that it was time to officially NATALIE OFF DUTY it. I have to admit, I’m hooked. Super lightweight for day, yet still gives me a perfected look that has a strong amount of coverage to use on set. Obviously flawless skin starts with amazing skincare and a healthy diet…the secret to any real glow. It’s a lot of work! I started making fresh green juices at home in the mornings, investing in regular facials every month, and finally spending those extra minutes in the steam room post-workout. All of these little things have helped me achieve my skin goals. I try not to rely too much on foundation, but this one blends in so perfectly and lightly that it doesn’t feel or look like you’re wearing anything. It’s certainly time for you to try it. I went from 8 AM pulling looks for a shoot, to 10 AM emails and conference calls, to being out until 6 PM on the run in Manhattan taking appointments. Like most days, I’m back-to-back and keep my beauty routine at it’s minimum. The foundation lasts up to 15 hours! I didn’t reapply once, and that’s exactly how I like to go about my manic Monday.

FENDI S/S ’18 FITTING AND SHOWTIME – SUAREZ SISTERS

Milan. Fendi. Fitting. Showtime. Visiting the Fendi headquarters for Milan Fashion Week was an absolute dream. I immediately spotted Karl Lagerfeld nonchalantly strolling down the hallway in preps for the fashion show. I had to pinch myself from all the excitement…is this place even real? I couldn’t help but dreamily run my fingers through every long silk dress at our fitting. Every dress so perfectly sharp at the shoulders with an exaggerated, feminine waistline. It’s certainly the most flattering cut on any woman. So classic, elongating, and elegant. Dylana and I had a ball at our fitting… slipping into extra high waisted skirts and buttoning up into bright pink blazers. The fit was always so on point. I chose the iconic Fendi sock bootie and triple clutch bag as a finishing touch. Fendi has mastered the tongue-in-cheek, super eclectic look that still remains timeless. Bright bold hues with a beautiful play on luxurious texture. It’s no surprise Dylana and I both ended up choosing this Fendi F/W ’17 silhouette. We like to gravitate towards similar pieces yet pull it off in a completely different and unique way. Getting to play in such an iconic fashion house is nothing but a dream.

THE BLAZER AND TEE | MILAN FASHION WEEK

A blazer and tee…the perfect travel companions. Effortless and easy. Jazzed up with a fur boot by my Italian friends at AGL. Milan Fashion Week was such a dream. Team Suarez was in town with Fendi. I cannot wait to tell you all about the show, our fitting…and the outfits of course. Milan is a place to dress to the nines. I was blown away by the streetstyle. The shoes. The bags. In Milan, more is more, and I mean that with pasta as well! With a few extra moments to spend exploring this stunning city, I found this to be my favorite time of day. As the sun goes down, a gold hue is sent through the streets off the Duomo. Ahh, Italia…you’re my favorite. Magic. Days were spent at the shows. I’m talking glamorous piazzas and open patios…where the fashion week champagne endlessly flowed. Each venue felt like a secret garden in the the heart of this buzzing city. Only in Italy! We were blessed with gorgeous weather. I spent late nights strolling down the pedestrian streets in search of a simple, mouthwatering plate of of penne pomodoro. Complete only with a rich glass of pinot noir. They don’t call it La Dolce Vita for nothing.

DRIPPING IN GOLD WITH ANNA SUI

Here I am, running late into the sunset, off to claim my seat at Anna Sui’s NYFW show this season…in nothing but Anna, of course. This is my dream evening look. So unique. So rock n’ roll. A glamorous gold lamé twin set (a fabric Anna Sui uses in almost every collection) adorned with plush velvet roses. The way the metallic glistens in the sun and the way the skirt moves with every step is magic. The sleeves became my wings for the evening. Anna Sui, I worship you! Thank you for taking me into another world and another time with every extraordinary design. Take a little front row peek at the Anna Sui S/S ’18. We’re talking peace and love, to the max. Her stars and moons and florals are a burst of color from a new world. Complete with folk music and daisy face paint. I like to dream in her clothes and escape. I start to play characters and new roles whenever I’m in her clothes. In this gold ensemble, I’m mentally dancing in a jazz cafe on a perfect NYC night in the 1920’s.
