The Fashion Industry’s 10 Best-Kept Beauty Secrets

Backstage at New York Fashion Week is like a playground for beauty junkies (like us). It may be the only place where you’ll find 10 journalists crowded around a bottle of nail polish, oohing and ahhing. You’ll also find models playing Angry Birds on their iPhones while manicurists perfect their nail beds, or one of the country’s top hair stylists spritzing one girl’s strands and simultaneously approving another model’s ‘do.

We got to take a peek into this world and rub shoulders (literally!) with some of the beauty world’s best and brightest backstage at some of NYFW’s hottest shows, including Jill Stuart, Trina Turk and Rebecca Minkoff. And while we were getting a preview of some of the runways’ hottest beauty trends, we also took notes on how fashion’s top makeup, hair and beauty gurus work their magic.
