Fashion Week was a busy time in the city, but after many seasons running between shows, NY1's Stephanie Simon took a new approach to getting a front row to the latest hair and makeup trends.
The best beauty trick I learned at Fashion Week: save time by showing up without my hair or makeup done.
The spring look is fresh and clean.
“It's all about the fresh dewy face, like, the more real skin that you see the better,” said Valerie Star of Caravan Stylist Studio.
This pop-p beauty station at Century 21 department store was organized by Caravan Stylist Studio. Glamour gurus Valerie Star and Kelly Thompson gave us great tips for hair and makeup.
“So any shade of pink's gonna give you like a rosy real subtle way to bring light into your face. Lashes, lashes lashes. We're seeing lots of mascara, we’re seeing lengthening, we're seeing thickening. It's all about the lashes,” said Thompson.
There’s even colored mascara.
“I love, love, love it, it's fun because you don't have to load on all the eye makeup to add that little extra pop of color. So it’s like either do it on the tips you can do it in purple and greens,” said Star.
So hair for spring is all about expecting the unexpected. In fact, Star says what was once a hair don't could be a hair-do.
“We love seeing like an up-do but the unexpected up-do, have fun with it. Do twists. Do little braids in there,” said Star.
Valerie did soft curls for me.
“And just kind of randomly and haphazardly twist it around the rod,” said Star.
Admittedly, I'm doing more of a day into night look. And yes I cheated by having my hair and makeup done here, but there are plenty of great short cuts anyone can use.
“Put some braids in your hair before you go to bed. You know, twist them up, clip them up, go to sleep and when you wake up take them down, shake your head and there you go,” said Star.
And try a pretty pink product that can do double duty.
“A little bit on your cheeks a little bit on your lips I actually tap a little on the middle of my lids, my lashes and I'm gone,” said Thompson.
I'm outta here too. Right after a quick photo-op.
