Up bright and early by 4:30 am to prep and head over to The Arc, Skylight for BCBGMAXAZRIA NYFW show with Val Garland as Key Artist, I was so excited for today's show.

I first got to work with Val last season for BCBG and from there is how I heard about her Mastered with Val online class. I am just finishing up  her program and will write a separate post all about it. What i will say now is that it is TOTALLY worth it. I was able to bring in what I learned from her class, how Val works, and how she likes for her team to work, to today's show. See below for inspiration and photos backstage.

Val's Beauty Inspiration:

“The quintessential California girl that is effortlessly cool. We wanted models to look and feel confident in their own skin.”

This item from Grid It was featured by Val Garland in her class as one of her must have NYFW products, what's great about it is that you can attach all your powders, brushes, touch up products through the loop and away it goes. As seen below - Val's version. You can purchase the Grid on Amazon here.
