In her second essentials installment, Nordstrom National Beauty and Fragrance Director, Cheri Botiz gives us a peek into her New York Fashion Week cosmetics bag so we can all pinch her makeup secrets.
This is always an exciting trip to pack for. As you can see, I love bright pops of sheer color on the lips. I also tend to go for illuminated cheeks and defined eyes with flirty lashes.
1 – Cosmetic Cases: I love this bag by Marc Jacobs. It comes in a couple colors, and it’s reversible!
