The skyn team celebrates a decade behind-the-scenes at #NYFW
When Fashion Week comes to New York, we know what to expect: late nights, dry skin (in February), tons of traffic jams, and too high heels. But what keeps us coming back is that special magic, those surprising and unexpected moments of inspiration. We just can’t get enough.
We like to keep our fashion simple, just like our skin routine. So we loved Charlotte Ronson’s effortless cool girl clothes, pieces you can wear to anything: work, a cocktail party, a date. A particular favorite was a series of crocheted knit dresses and skirts that united ladylike lace and hippie chic. Lace was also a theme at Erin Fetherston, as were vivid florals. The show was sweet and satisfying, just like the special fashion week Baked by Melissa’s Cupcakes we nibbled on backstage. Normally sugar is on our ‘no’ list, but we all need a moment of indulgence now and again!
The makeup artists used the following skin regiment to prep and treat skin so all the models looked beautiful and glowing:
Step 1: Cleanse Glacial Cleansing Cloths We kept it simple with Glacial Cleansing Cloths. No soap, no water, just clean, clear, smooth skin in about 30 seconds.
Step 2: Minimize Pores When you’re putting on and taking off makeup multiple times in a single day, pores rise up in revolt against the stress. We’ve seen it happen, and when it does, Pure Pore Minimizer comes to our rescue.
Step 4: Moisturize
To moisturize or not to moisturize, that is the question. Wait…no it’s not. When you’re fighting what feels like a losing battle against the winter chill, moisture is what you need most. Depending on our skin type, we loaded up on Pure Cloud Cream (dry irritable skin), the the Antidote Cooling Daily Lotion (combination/oily skin), Arctic Hydrating Balm (very dry skin), or Arctic Elixir Serum (tightening, calming) to keep our skin soft and beautiful.
Step 5: Treat Eyes: Nothing is less stylish than puffy, tired eyes, so we trusted our Icelandic Relief Eye Cream to make short work of long days and late nights. Within moments, we looked refreshed, rejuvenated and wide awake.
Step 6: Hydrate and Set Make-up Our Arctic Face Mist Arctic Face Mist prepares even the most stressed skin for fashion duty by soothing irritation and replenishing moisturizer. Dryness begone.
