Backstage at New York Fashion Week is exhilarating and exhausting, all at the same time. There are dozens of models, photographers and beauty teams weaving through thick clouds of hairspray and face powder. But in the midst of all the mania, we're fortunate to get an up-close look at all the hair, makeup and nail trends hours before they hit the runway.
Day one at the Spring 2014 shows was filled with the expected: Minimal makeup, "undone, yet done" hair and nude nails. So we took full advantage of our full-access backstage at Richard Chai, Tadashi Shoji and Honor to ask a few beauty pros what's the one product they had to have in their kit.
