Backstage Beauty: Our Favorite Fashion Week Looks

Hi everyone, it’s Alex reporting to you from a very snowy (and cold!) New York City. Although the sky seems to be falling, Fall 2013 Fashion Week is off to a great start and we’ve got the photos to prove it… From loaded lashes to twisted ponytails, there has been no shortage of creative beauty ideas and I am thrilled to share these exclusive backstage beauty photos with you (taken by yours truly)…

BCBG: The makeup was all about luminized skin and perfectly smudged eyes

Insider Tip: Makeup artists at BCBG lined the inner eye with nude eyeliner to brighten the complexion and open the eye. This is one of the industry’s best kept beauty secrets.

Insider Tip: For perfectly flat-ironed hair, straighten in sections, working up the head to the temples.

 Which look is your favorite?

Personally, I think it’s hard to pick a favorite—they are all lovely and unique in their own way. Although I must say that a bold lip and a simple cat-eye seems to get me every time… Loved Kate Spade. All in all, there have been plenty of simple beauty looks with interesting twists and I cannot wait to see what these next few days have in store.
