Fashion month has come to a close. So many outfit changes. So many makeup looks thanks to my team at NARS. This past NYFW may have been one of my favorites. Watch to the video to see some of the highlights. This is how Dylana and I, the SUAREZ SISTERS, do fashion week.
It was such a dream come true getting to walk the runway for the Rebecca Minkoff S/S ’17 show this past weekend alongside so many beautiful, inspiring women! I did a lot of runway at the beginning of my career, so it felt amazing to walk again now, purely as myself. The show was at The Grove in Los Angeles, my hometown, and it may have been the longest runway I’ve ever walked. The crowds were insane and the energy was amazing. Let’s just say there was a lot of smiles strutting down the catwalk. The collection was super romantic, with a downtown NYC edge. I love a mix of floral frills and edgy suede shorts and studded skirts. Perfect. Plus, you can shop the collection from the runway right now below. The hair was big, wild, and luscious. The makeup super fresh, with faux freckles and a beautiful smoky eye. It’s a complete mix of California and NYC cool. You get the best of both coasts.
When I’m off set, I love to keep my skin looking as fresh as possible. Less is more. How do you wear sublte statement makeup? I say, stick with a statement eye or lip, and keep everything else just glowing and natural. Here I show you my 2 minute cat-eye, with a clean fresh skin. The Lancôme GRANDIÔSE LINER is a lifesaver. It’s one of the best I’ve found as of late. Their foundation stick is also extremely smooth and makes my face feel extra soft. So rare for a foundation that doubles as a really good concealer. Right now, my skin feels better than it has ever been. I’ll share my secrets in my next video.
The Bite Beauty multi-stick in Biscottiis the base to my daily makeup looks. I give my lids, cheeks, and lips one swipe. That’s the pink you see here.
I am so excited to give you a first ever, sneak peek inside my home! I bought this loft in Dumbo, Brooklyn about a year ago, and fell in love with it’s open space and amazing, iconic location. Not to mention, huge kitchen and closet (closet used more than kitchen hehe). It’s my special place to create, grow, and feel inspired! Waking up to the view of the Empire State building every morning easily gets me in that New York City groove. Enjoy this peek inside my home!
