Fashion Week Beauty Products

We revealed what keeps fashion week regulars like makeup artist James Kaliardos and hairstylist Odile Gilbert going during the month-long parade through New York, London, Milan, and Paris. Now, the Style.com team shares the beauty must-haves they’ll be stashing in their bags and keeping in their bathrooms for the Spring 2014 season:

Nicole Phelps, executive editor

“I had my first facial with superstar esthetician Joanna Vargas last week. As her devotees well know, Vargas likes to tailor her facials to the seasons and the skin’s response to them. It may be Spring ’14 fashion week, but weather-wise here in New York it’s still the end of summer. Vargas’ new Fall Superfoods Facial is designed to address the ravages of three months in the sun. For me, that meant patchy dryness and SPF-induced bumps along the hairline, as well as some trouble spots on my chin. Vargas addressed them all, using the all-natural and organic skin care products, like the Vitamin C Face Wash (shown above), she’s known for. My favorite part of the facial was the pumpkin purée and avocado mask, which smelled almost good enough to eat and left my face looking dewy and fresh. If only Joanna would create a facial designed to heal the effects of four weeks of fashion shows.

Matthew Schneier, deputy editor

“Dry shampoo [from Klorane], sunscreen [by Clarins], water, and coffee—the combination makes you look like you haven’t slept for a week, when in reality, you haven’t slept for two.”

Marina Larroudé, market director

“I’m obsessed with Clé de Peau Beauté concealer (shown above) and use it every day—no matter if it’s fashion week or not. The only thing that’s different is the frequency that I go to Drybar, which is pretty much every other day. It helps that there’s a location only a block away from my house where I can book early morning appointments.”

Kate Cerigo, senior designer

“When my skin is looking ‘blah’ after a string of late nights I use Korres Wild Rose + Vitamin C Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial (shown above) before bed and wake up to a more refreshed face.”

Kristin Anderson, assistant editor, special projects

“In the throes of fashion week, I’ll be trimming the excess from my makeup routine, and opting for Dr. Jart+ Black Label Detox BB Cream. This glowy, medium coverage BB eliminates the need for concealer and SPF. The botanical formula also treats any pesky, stress-related spots. And rather than risking a sticky finger situation, I’ll be toting the luxuriously packaged lip oil from Hourglass Cosmetics (shown above).”

Amber Kallor, senior beauty editor

Yves Saint Laurent’s Le Teint Touche Éclat foundation (shown above) offers the brightening magic of their famous pen—for your entire face, which is especially helpful when my skin can’t keep pace with my hectic schedule. Before bed (usually somewhere around 2 a.m.) I treat myself and computer-strained eyes to Skyn Iceland Hydro Cooling Firming Eye Gels, which de-puff with ginkgo biloba leaf extract and firm with hydrolyzed elastin.”

Emily Farra, editorial coordinator

“Long days in the office tend to dry out my skin, so over the next few weeks I’ll be relying on my favorite new face oil with rosehip extract from Boots Botanics. Not only does it smell clean (not musky) and keep my skin looking fresh for 12 plus hours, but it only costs $9 so I can slather it on guilt-free. An afternoon dose of this rosewater spritz (shown above) reactivates the oil and serves as a wake-up call when caffeine isn’t cutting it anymore. As for my hair, I’m using leather bow clips from American Apparel, in neutral colors like black and camel, to get it off my face while I work on the computer all day.”

Katharine K. Zarrella, associate news editor

“I have somewhat of a red lip obsession, and when Chanel discontinued my favorite stain last year, I had a bit of a panic. Earlier this month, my hairstylist, Michael Angelo at Wonderland Beauty Parlor, introduced me to Beauté’s lip stain in Fever and lip cream in Masochist (both shown above). I’ll be wearing them every single day, because no matter how tired I feel, painting on the perfect rouge pout always provides a much-needed kick of rejuvenation.”

Brittany Adams, associate fashion editor

“Running between all the shows, presentations, and events during fashion week is enough to make even the most polished girl look a little rough around the edges. I’ve tried nearly every primer on the market and keep returning to L’Oréal Studio Secrets Professional Magic Perfecting Base (shown above). I dab a little bit on my nose and forehead to make me look perfectly matte and smooth before walking into each appointment. I also carry around a can of Bumble and Bumble Thickening Dryspun Finish spray, which gives my hair volume and texture on the go.”

Rachel Walgrove, social media editor

“Bags are for arms, not eyes. Benefit Cosmetics Boi-ing Industrial Strength Concealer is my look-alive go-to for fashion season and beyond.”
