Moisture Gets a Makeover: Vaseline Spray & Go
Does your denim rebel against oil-slicked legs? Do your arms feel like they're coated in goop? Well, guess what? I have been there. If dealing with your moisturizer is a sticky situation, my new obsession can fix it. Enter Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturizer.
Last week, Vaseline invited me to join them for a special fashion show during New York Fashion Week to honor mothers and support their charities of choice. Vaseline knows our readers love a good time, so they enlisted Beauty Blitz to give you guys get a glimpse of the show from backstage. Then you shared my front-row seat and snuck in to the after-party. Lucky you! Some highlights, in case you missed them: my ankle got the spotlight with this cool Rick Ross-inspired tattoo, seeing my fitness sensei David Kirsch chase after his adorable twins, crushing on the talented Motown-minded tot DJ Fulano and making crazy kaleidoscopes out of the brand's logo.
The energy backstage at this show, Strut: Fashionable Moms Fashion Show, was at full tilt. There was the usual fashion frenzy (hairstylists fluffing, blowdrying buzzing, makeup pros swiping, stylists steaming, models stressing, assistants schvitzing). But the fun factor was amplified by throngs of cute tots primping for a sashay session with mom (or dad, in one instance).
As an old-timer (this was my 25th season covering fashion week), I've seen hundreds of MacGyver tricks to get models ready without a messy beauty malfunction. When models show up with dry, ashy limbs, moisturizer is key. and while standard lotion will get skin luminous and hydrated, it will inevitably stain peau de soie skirts and sheer chiffon blouses before their debut on the runway. Some pros have used salad misters to apply a sheer layer of diluted lotion. Others forgo hydration for fear of ruining garments.
For years, I've begged beauty companies to launch a body serum. I have zero tolerance for wet, greasy cream.
