It’s getting down the wire with Fashion Week winding down and few things have been as critical for my making it through the week as my emergency kit – aka as a repurposed gift-with-purchase cosmetic bag. I’ve never felt comfortable touching up my makeup in public and the cramped restrooms in the Fashion Week section at Lincoln Center are less than appealing so it’s important that the makeup I’m wearing makes it from day-to-night. With that said, my cosmetic bag is filled with little trinkets to ensure that, and more, happens.
Miss Oops has a bunch of lifesaving products, my favorite of which is their deodorant sponge, which is my equivalent to the Tide stick (it's fantastic for removing a lot more than just deodorant). I also have a few Advils (not to whine, but waiting for shows to start – especially when they entail standing in long lines – can quickly become headache-inducing), facial wipes and makeup removing Q-tips so that if my makeup does smudge, I can fix it in a pinch, some cooling eye cream, tissue for my perpetually tearing eyes (I'm beginning to think I'm allergic to every mascara on planet Earth) and of course, the essential Metrocard!
