Welcome to Beauty Diary: Seven days of getting glam with an industry insider. From publicists to professional makeup artists, this is a week in the life of someone who lives and breathes beauty.

For this week's edition of Beauty Diary, we go back—way back—to last month's New York Fashion Week shows with Courtney Tichman, the brand manager and director of product development for Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics.

For the Creatures of Comfort show, she used the vegan brand's lip tars to create a "reverse ombre wine stain lip." And for Chromat, she used silver and coral eye colors to illustrate a collection "inspired by a tender moment between a human and a robotic being." (Yup.)

See all that below,, as well as what color she decided to dye her dreads, what's in her "monster bag of necessities," and her favorite brand of absinthe.
