Yummy411: Fashion Week for a Newbie, Part 1

Here's the skinny on my weekend via pics (Saturday)!

Megabus got us there.. and yes I paid more than $1 to ride!

The bus let us off right at Madison Square Gardens.. my first time there!

Say hi Slvrlips!

Here's the most awesomestestest host ever! Thanks Heidi for everything!

After touchdown and revving our engines back up, we took to the grimy subway system (on our own!) to get to the tents!... yes, in the midst of Tropical Storm Hanna. Rain never stopped the NY fabulosity!

A view inside of the main tent. Vendors all around for those lounging and mingling (i.e. people watching, snagging freebies, and celeb sight-seeing) before going to view a show.

It's Mercedes Benz's Fashion Week!

The MAC stage. Get face charts and makeup info used for shows daily. Check in with them to go behind stage for their shows.

The hot spot of the night. Get your free personalized Havaiana flip flops... I would have gotten MBFW '08. I sipped on some free drinks instead of challenging that line. I got my Havaiana flip flops while in Brazil ;) I could have also gotten them on US shelves, but it was part of the experience. Copoeira pants anyone?

Lastly, my FOTD of the night from the Shadowy Lady quad! A smokey blue eye. I thought of my girl Yannize* when I broke out the Deep Truth.

FACE: Almay liquid shimmer, CG Queen Collection mineralize pressed foundation (sheer layer), CG Queen Collection mineral bronzer.
CHEEKS: Bare (bronzer)
EYES: Deep Truth wet on lid, Shadow Lady in crease and outer v, Auto de blue technakhol liner on my water line, Magic Dust on tear ducts, Maybelline XXL primer and Colossal mascaras. Cork e/s and Girl Boy brow set in brows, concealer to sculpt and shape
LIPS: (was) Cushy lip liner, Propogate and VG5 l/g

Check back for more Fashion Week from a newbie when I got backstage!
*Meet Yannize in an upcoming post!
