Makeup brand ELLIS FAAS was the cosmetics brand behind the dewy skin and natural lips seen at the VPL Autumn/Winter runway show at this February's New York Fashion Week. Makeup artist Romy Soleimani used an assortment of the products to create an approachable and natural look, with the focus being on the eyes. Romy used ELLIS FAAS Skin Veil Foundation to createa a dewy base, then ELLIS FAAS Eye Lights in E301 to highlight the inner corners of the eye as well as the upper cheekbones and finished off the look with ELLIS FAAS Concealer in S201 to lighten the lips. Romy said, "The overall effect was an ethereal skin, and the highlight of the cheek created a flash as the models walked down the runway."
Since Imitation's models had the best looking skin at last years Fashion Week it was no wonder skyn ICELAND was invited back again to prep the model's skin to perfection and make sure they had the perfect canvas to apply the finishing stage: makeup! Goody bags were in abundance as well as founder Sarah Kugleman giving out "stress tests" backstage! Yes, I know their lives seem perfect but even models can be under backstage stress, running from show to show and constantly being primped, poked and squezzed into outfits for four days in a row. skyn ICELAND estheticians were also on hand backstage to calm and detoxify model's skin by doing mini facials. To create your own runway worthy prepped skin follow these steps from skyn ICELAND.

Parting with money can be scary, especially if it's on beauty products because you want to be assured you're going to love what you're buying. If there's an item I've had my eye on for awhile I always love to hear reviews on my peer's experience with it, to see if I think it would be a good fit for me. I epsecially love it when magazine's come out with editor's or reader's picks because you know influential people are saying they love or hate it along with the regular consumer like you and I. A couple of our more expensive products were just featured on NBC's Today Show in a wonderful segment showcasing the best beauty buys for people on a budget as well as higher priced items that are worth the investment.
