Last Wednesday I trekked to NYC for a fashion-filled day at the end of NYFW. I got to go backstage and find out about all the beauty trends strutting down the runway straight from the hair, makeup, and manicure masters themselves! The Trend Hungry NYFW backstage interviews will be up later this week! I seriously cannot wait to share with you, but for now backstage pics will have to do.
1. Daisy Fuentes
I got to talk to the head of Maybelline Japan & the lead nail artist for the day. You will LOVE what Daisy went with for her model’s beauty style. Plus, all the products used fro makeup and nails are uber budget friendly. We also go a sneak peek at a new Maybelline product that comes out this November (hint: it’s pictured!!). We’ll give you more details this week!
My friend Courtney stepped in as camera woman for the day.
Polish II. The models wore it and it’s only $4 a bottle! My friend Rose from the brand invited me backstage – thanks Rose!
2. Mordekai by Ken Borochov
The avant-garde designer behind luxe accessories line was a dream to talk to. His pieces have been donned by Lady GaGa, Madonna, Nicki Minaj, Rita Ora and many more. Can you see why the celebs love his pieces?
Pink makeup to match the accessories. You like?
Celebrity hairstylist Edward Tricomi was there for hair and gave details on healthy hair at home. Video interview will be up later this week!
3. Spanx Press Preview
I absolutely love this brand. I got to interview the founder Sara Blakely this past winter when Spanx invited me to their grand opening press event at King of Prussia Mall. While in NYC I swung by their popup showroom to see what’s new with Spanx … and there’s quite a lot. Shapewear pants – yes please!
4. T. Tandon
This event was at the Empire hotel, as was the Spanx event. Even Joan Rivers and the Fashion Police team were at the Empire. This brand may not be considered budget friendly, but we can certainly take inspiration for spring 2014 from this tea-party chic style.
5. DBA Gifting Suite
I love finding out about the newest in fashion and beauty (obviously!) so I can’t wait to put my new goodies from the #DBALovingThis Suite to the test.
