a day in the life of: amy focazio, vp of global communications for m·a·c cosmetics

Being the nosey voyeur that I am, I reached out to a few of my favorite people in the business to share what they’re jam packed days are like – and what better week to kick it off than fashion week! Over the past couple of days, I harassed my friends and colleagues to give an inside glimpse into what makes shows (hair, beauty, etc.) actually happen. Is it all champagne and glamour? Let’s find out…

Rounding out the week in terms of A Day in the life is the one and only Amy Focazio. Amy is the Vice President of Global Communications for M·A·C Cosmetics, which simply means she’s a BFD. This season, the M·A·C Cosmetics team is backstage at over 120 shows, has/will work with over 4,700 models, and has already ordered 439 lashes – needless to say Amy and team are just a tad bit busy. Luckily she was able to capture her day (Saturday, 2/9) for us, so read on for more…

Bonus! Amy was kind enough to share her M·A·C must-haves to get her through the day:

“I’m all about black, rimmed eyes and nude lips or soft eyes and a dark lip. Skin is always natural, dewy. My top five that I always reach for:

  1. Fix+
  2. Haute & Naughty Mascara
  3. Smolder Eye Liner
  4. Gareth Pugh Lipstick in Fervent (no longer available – similar)
  5. Mineralize Skinfinish Natural

Thanks Amy for participating!

a day in the life of: julia murphree, director of social media and digital communications at maybelline

Being the nosey voyeur that I am, I reached out to a few of my favorite people in the business to share what they’re jam packed days are like – and what better week to kick it off than fashion week! Over the next couple of days, I’ll be harassing my friends and colleagues to give an inside glimpse into what makes shows (hair, beauty, etc.) actually happen. Is it all champagne and glamour? Let’s find out…

Like most of my beauty friends, Julia Murphree seems to have come out of nowhere but all I know if I NEED her in my lifestyle. She’s hysterical, has amazing brows, and her Five Rules to life completed my life. As Director of Social Media and Digital Communications over at Maybelline/ Essie/Garnier, she wears many hats (um, like, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Pinterest, Instagram, AND Vine).

As makeup sponsor for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, I knew Maybelline’s leading lady would be busy this week – so why not add one more thing on her plate, AMIRIGHT?! Read on to hear her take on NYFW:

PS: please see this cute Vine of the makeup vending machine she mentioned here. You’re welcome.

Next up is the ever popular, Sara Zucker. Sara works in digital at NARS Cosmetics and blogs over at Farpitz (apparently it’s Yiddish for “all dressed up,”). Take a look at her day, how she braved Nemo, and what show she covered.

a day in the life of: mary friberg, public relations director at hourglass cosmetics

Being the nosey voyeur that I am, I reached out to a few of my favorite people in the business to share what they’re jam packed days are like – and what better week to kick it off than fashion week! Over the next couple of days, I’ll be harassing my friends and colleagues to give an inside glimpse into what makes shows (hair, beauty, etc.) actually happen. Is it all champagne and glamour? Let’s find out…

First up is Mary Friberg (pictured below in the pink top!) who is the Public Relations Director at Hourglass Cosmetics. I’m not sure HOW I met Mary but I do know that I completely APPRECIATE her in my lifestyle since she keeps me updated on all things Hourglass. The brand has quickly become a regular in my makeup bag and their Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipsticks have CHANGED my life and I have her to thank for it. Expect a few more reviews (especially on their new Ambient Lighting Powder) here on MissWYA. In the meantime, take a look at the power machine that is Mary as she walks us through Day 1 of NYFW:

Next time I complain about being too busy, I’ll think of the day she had. Thanks Mary for sharing!!
