To ensure no trace of the last shows’ look is left behind, makeup artists stock up on French cult favorite Bioderma Crealine H2O Ultra Mild Non-Rinse Face and Eyes Cleanser, $30, thompsonchemists.com. Believe it—its my holy grail makeup remover!

Hair Raisers

Whether hair is hanging loose, in a pony or chignon, at many shows texture and volume are everything. To amp up strands, pros look to Bumble & bumble City Swept (out later this month, February 2014), bumbleandbumble.com; Aveda Pure Abundance Hair Potion, $24, aveda.com; Kérastase Paris Spray a Porter, $35, kerastase-usa.com

 Secret Weapon

To create the clean, fresh skin that stays true at nearly every show, skip brushes (which can cause streaks) and blend like the pros with Beauty Blender makeup sponge, $28 for two, sephora.com.

Smooth Sailing

How can models’ hair stay so perfect between hair and makeup? By carefully pinning with paper lined or foam-coated clips like Ricky’s NYC No-Crease Bow Clips, $5.99 for 3, rickysnyc.com.

To transform hair—and undo what was done the show before—pros often have Solano 1875W SuperSolano Professional Hairdryer, $130, ulta.com, in hand.
