Smile To Go

DALLAS, Aug 29, 2009 / FW/ — Eleven days to go before fashion week starts! With airlines charging from $15 or more for checked luggage, packing light for fashion week seems harder than ever.

Before you decide which shoes and bags go and stay, make sure that your make up bag has all the essentials but takes up a very small in your suitcase.

First, put yourself into a “mini mindset.” Think of multi-tasking make-up so that you don’t have to bring your whole make up kit.

Instead, put together several essentials, such as mascara to make your eyes pop and double-duty makeup, such as a bronze colored lipstick that you can also use on cheeks. Dab three dots of lipstick onto the apples of your cheeks and blend in lightly to give a sun-kissed glow.

Smile To Go: When you say cheese at the stairs at Bryant Park or inside the tents, make sure your smile is in tip-top shape. Crest Whitestrips Advanced Seal Trial Size are great for on-the-go whitening. The strip molds securely to your teeth, so you can wear it while talking and or even drinking water, without interruption. Plus the new Trial Size package comes with two doses of whitening, perfect for that short weekend getaway.

Lather up: You should never leave home without your favorite hand cream in your travel bag, and make sure to use it liberally throughout the trip. This will not only keep your hands from drying out, but also keeps your hands soft and smooth for the non-ending handshaking and hugging during the week.
