Next week, Fab and I are heading to New York Fashion Week to check out the Fall 2008 collections. It's exciting because I'll be able to see some wonderful shows and poke around backstage — and of course, I'll serve up all the dish and beauty trends for you.

So, of course, I'd like to shine with all of the models, makeup artists, stylists, celebs, magazine editors, and sundry other lovely people. Problem is, I'm going to be running around Manhattan trying to keep up with all of the shows. I'm already planning to shove some Larabars in my tote bag for snacking on the go, but I'd love some suggestions for the essential beauty items I'll need for Fashion Week. As you can see, my bag's pretty roomy — so what should I take?

Share your suggestions by bookmarking items from around the web and tagging them with the phrase fw beauty. I'll feature your favorites here next Tuesday.
