As much as Mercedes Benz-Fashion Week is about the models and designers, it also gives me a chance to play dress up. Thanks to a silver, zipper-accented dress sent to me by SA VA, a hip boutique in Philadelphia, and the spacious, black leather “Hannah” tote I received from Ellington handbags, I was dressed to impress at the Tents.

I also sampled a few new beauty products to help me look and smell my best.

Here’s what I used:

Cover Girl Queen Collection Natural Hue Minerals Pressed Powder (Ebony Bronze) gives me a natural matte finish; and Cover Girl’s Queen Collection Natural Hue Bronzer (also in Ebony Bronze) has a subtle gold shimmer.

Soul Purpose “Hollywood Fresh” Shea Butter Balm smells divine; like a perfume and conditioning moisturizer in one.

Eye Studio by Maybelline comes in several glamorous color combinations including Copper Chic, Irresistibly Ivy, and Green With Envy.

Jouer “Starfish” lip gloss is a pretty, subtle shade of pink.

“Forever” by Mariah Carey is the singer’s latest fresh, floral scent; perfect for springtime.

Maybelline Lash Stiletto Voluptuous is waterproof and has a slightly curved brush to hug and strengthen your lashes.
