Behind Every Great NFL Player is an Amazing Woman

One of the highly-anticipated events that happens each year during the week leading up to the Super Bowl is the Off the Field NFL Players’ Wives Fashion Show. Led by Off the Field president, Ericka Lassiter (her husband is Kwamie Lassiter formerly of the Arizona Cardinals), the official NFL wives organization puts on a lively show, from recognizing Women of Impact to rocking the runway in fashions from local retailers in the game’s host city. Since the 49th Super Bowl was in Arizona this year, Scottsdale Fashion Square hosted the event and MSL had the privilege of going behind the scenes and talking with a few of the ladies as they prepped for the show. They even shared some of their style and beauty tips!

Backstage, the wives get ready to walk the runway.

MSL: Favorite Style or Beauty Tip?

Ketonya: Make your style personal! 

Camille: Don’t ever sleep with your makeup on! I keep my beauty routine simple and use coconut oil to moisturize — works beautifully.

Tiffany: Groomed eyebrows are key. If they’re looking good, I feel pulled together.

MSL: Favorite Style or Beauty Tip?

Nicole: Drink a lot of water! It’s important to stay hydrated to plump your skin and look fresh. Plus, perk up your skin with bright lipstick. I especially love a great shade of pink.

Rebecca: I discovered this amazing concealer kit on Amazon with a dozen or so different shades. I use it to cover and contour my face — no foundation needed. The results are amazing! Pinterest has a ton of great tutorials where I found tips on how to contour properly.
