Happy Monday! Today I am excited to share with you my backstage coverage from New York Fashion Week. It was such a thrill to be backstage at a handful of shows this year- the energy and excitement is like nothing I have felt before.
Imagine 15 gorgeous models, 30 makeup artists and hairstylists, and 5 manicurists... all doing their jobs at once, plus about 20 members of the press (that's me... 'press' :) trying to photograph and video ALL AT THE SAME TIME! In a tiny backstage area, I might add! It is chaos at its' finest.
In the video below, I put together some of the beauty looks that I was able to witness first hand, as well as some of my other favorites from shows I wasn't able to attend this season. It gives you just a glimpse of the beauty you can expect to see trending come Spring 2015. The majority of the designers all opted for sleek/wet hair looks on their models, and mostly natural looking makeup. But, there were of course a few outliers that went for bold lips, crazy nail art, and even pierced eyebrows! Take a look:
- Rodarte (pierced eyebrows)
- Degen (rainbow/water color nails)
- The Blonds
- Zac Posen (red lips)
- Georgine (hair wrapped in scarves)
- Libertine (letters/tassels on the fingernails)
- Rebecca Minkoff
- Jason Wu
I hope you find some beauty inspiration in these looks! I know I did, and I'll be bringing you some 'Inspired By' posts over the next couple months, where I'll showcase some of my favorite looks, and how I would achieve them at home. Stay tuned for those, and be sure you come back later this week for a recap of what I wore while in NY, and for my Mascara Wands 101 class with Studio5 TV. xo
