As absolute lovers of all things beauty, we practically salivate when New York Fashion Week rolls around. Being beauty editors, the new season means that we have full access to the best hairstylists, makeup artists, and manicurists in the business (and we won’t even talk about the gaggle of models that we get to steal on- — and off- — duty secrets from). On the runway, we see all of the trends come to fruition, but backstage is where we get the inside scoop of all the tricks and tips that the pros use to get each and every look.
From the weird tool that helps to get a cat-eye flick on both eyes (for once!) to the best way to blend a bold smoky eye, we’ve absorbed every hack that makes models look so stunning on the runway. Here are the best (and easiest) ones to add to your routine to up your wow factor.
