The NYFW Beauty Trend You Can Actually Wear on the Daily
From backstage to the back seat of your car, we all want a cute fresh face on the go. After running from warehouse to pier during last week’s 2019 NYFW, I spotted this makeup trend and had to share. Not only did it speak to me on the runway but I knew it would simplify my beauty routine. Now, I’m in the mood for monochrome.
Lids, lips, and cheeks all dipped in the same color. This single note look is a simple way to bring fashion to the face. My look is using Burt's Bees All Aglow Lip & Cheek Stick in Peach. You can also use it on the lid to achieve the perfect monochromatic look.
Here’s some inspo straight from the runway:

WHY I LOVE BURT’S BEES BEAUTY
My heart imprints on brands that stand for self expression and natural beauty. Burt’s Bees has been redefining beauty standards since 1984. Even though I haven’t been around quite that long, their little yellow lip balm tube has a place in my childhood memories, college, and even now sharing it with loved ones in NYC. So after they launched their natural makeup collection a few years ago, it’s been a joy to try out and fall in love with their products from brow pencils to blush.
A FEW OF MY FAVORITES
After using the Burt’s Bees Mattifying Powder Foundation in shade: almond, I noticed great coverage on my sensitive skin even though it’s 100% natural and made with bamboo powder! The honey comb shape is easy to find in a large makeup bag when you’re applying on the go.
Shy Pink might be my favorite shade of Burt’s Bees blush to wear out. It isn’t too heavy, blends easily, and probably wears the best throughout the day.
The newest edition to my personal Burt’s Bees Makeup collection is the Lip & Cheek Stick that I used to achieve the Monochrome Look in this blog post! It simplifies your beauty routine since it has multiple uses on the face. It' has a coconut oil core that hydrates the skin and leaves a dewey glow.
MY FIRST NYFW
I remember the first time I waited in line with 200 other eager fashionistas to see what was behind these giant black doors with the letters NYFW on them. In disbelief that this was real life, I felt out of place amongst the oversized bows and bedazzled barrettes. What does New York Fashion Week have to do with me? But, after watching a designer tear up while giving his bows after the show, I realized I’m watching living art. Now, I bob my head with each clink of the models’ heels and find the look that speaks to me for longer than just a runway show, because NYFW is truly something special.
With that, I hope you all enjoyed this bit of the runway in real life! ✨
