Last night two of the biggest fashion parties of the year took place: The CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Finalist Event and the FGI Night of the Stars gala. I caught up with Snob Global Media’s adorable mastermind, Tina Craig, who flew in to attend the latter event as honoree Derek Lam’s personal guest. We talked beauty, her latest denim collaboration and commiserated over traveling with carry-on luggage and all while getting ready in under thirty minutes.

“It’s very exciting to be in town for the FGI gala with Derek Lam, he’s winning the designer honoree award. It’s a short but very busy trip. When I fly back home I have the DL x Bag Snob, Snob Essential Jeans launching at Neiman Marcus. The collection has all my favorite styles. So I have a lot of amazing projects going on at the moment. This morning I spoke on a panel about how brands can work together with social media. I am only here for a couple days so I had to be smart with my packing.

I knew I was going to the gala so I brought my powerful three-tiered Hello Kitty container and it has three different colors of Mac Studio Sculpt. You cannot take photos without this; it is the world’s best foundation. It makes you look fresh and smooth. I never leave the house without my Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer it’s just a lifesaver. Blush Horizon Chanel is amazing I wear it day and night because the colors are graduated. And I love my Bobbi Brown lip-glosses I have them in every color and the little ones fit perfectly in my evening bag.

Of course I brought my Princess Lee lashes from Taiwan they feel like real hairs. Usually you can see the ugly line on fake lashes but these are really natural. I’m going to wear them with my Burberry mascara tonight, which has been an incredible discovery. As a finishing touch I’ll wear some of the new Hermès perfume, it hasn’t launched yet but they gave me a bunch of samples that are great for traveling.”
