From Runway to Real Way: NYFW

Posted by Anonymous on Tue, 01/08/2013 - 4:45 PM

Our first backstage pass this New York Fashion Week was at the Art Academy University fashion show. This show is full of pieces created by extremely talented students from the university. We had a chance to chat with them, see the pieces from the latest collection first, and most excitingly, chat with the hair and makeup stylists to see exactly how to get the look for this show. 

All products used were AVEDA and the stylists could not be any more kind and helpful. The head makeup artist told me that the key to this natural look was not to extend the liner on the eyes, but the eye shadow on the lid! For the hair, extensions were used to create a gorgeous, full, knot-twisty infused bun. Check out some behind the scene pics below and to see ALL the shots we got, check out our album on Facebook here.
