Fashion Week is one of my favorite holiday seasons! Models roaming the streets, backstage chaos, intoxicating fashion. Mmm, I smell it already! Now that Spring is only a few short months away, the new beauty trends are about to take effect. Many of these things are products that have been around for years, but used for new look concepts. Since I’m officially beauty, here’s what (and who) I captured in the tents.
Ah, the Mineralize Skin Finish Natural. These baked powders leave you with a satin veil of coverage on your face. Using a powder brush, you’ll get even, sheer coverage. For more of a glowy effect, try buffing onto the skin with a kabuki brush. You’ll be stunned by the effect! Try using it pressed on the eye lid as a shadow.
Spotted: Tia Williams! By this point, I’d seen Tia twice in one week and “stoked” isn’t even the word that describes it. ”The Accidental Diva” was confirmation that I could be a Beauty Editor! We’re missing “Shake Your Beauty” like crazy, but so glad she’s holding down the online beauty content at Essence.com! If you missed it, backtrack and check out my tribute to Tia Williams.
Spotted: Look closely at the middle of the screen. I spy a bottle of Scott Barnes Luminizing Mist! This glowy sheen in a bottle is a major love of mine, and apparently it’s a great item to have backstage. When his makeup line re-emerges, I’ll be first in line for a bottle of this liquid crack. Can’t get enough of it.
Who knows what will appear backstage at New York Fashion Week this year, but Scandalous Beauty will be in the house! You’ll have an instant forcast of the top products for Fall/Winter 2010. Stay tuned!!
