When it comes to getting models runway-ready, makeup artists arm themselves with tried-tested-and-true beauty arsenal that they swear by. Harpers Bazaar magazine lists all the hair, makeup, and skin perfecters that you can find behind-the-scenes.
La Vie En Rose
Whether lips are super sheer, nude, or sparkly burgundy they require some TLC. Smith’s Rosebud Salve, $6, sephora.com, imparts the perfect amount of moisture without any stickines.
From styling wet strands, to creating major volume at the crown or a super straight updo, Mason Pearson paddle brushes are the essential tool.
Mason Pearson paddle brush, $110 to $230, amazon.ca
Fix makeup mishaps as well as wipe away a full face in seconds with Klorane Soothing Eye and Face Make-Up Removal Wipes With Cornflower, $12.50 for 25 wipes, bigelowchemists.com.
Between messy chignons and sleek side sweeps, bobby pins are every stylist’s secret. Conair Styling Essential Bobby Pins in Blonde, Black or Brunette, $2, walgreens.com, are made to match every hair color. How perfect is that?
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!
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
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.
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.
Instead of H20, models at Rag & Bone, Alexander Wang, Phillip Lim, and Marc by Marc and Marc Jacobs sipped on mini Juice Press juices to stay hydrated and keep their skin glowing. Juice Press juices, juicepress.com.
