It's no wonder Butter London gets invited back season after season by some of Americas most talented fashion designers to adorn the nails of the beautiful people as they strut the catwalks. Creating custom made polishes is what they're known for and occasionally some of these actually get made into retail polishes down the road (we hope)! Here are some of our favorite looks from Fashion Week…
La Perla is all about beautiful lingerie and bare skin so it was only fitting that dare to bare nails was this years nail theme. Perfect timing too because Butter London just released their Starkers Collection, a trio of bespoke nudes designed to match every skin tone for a very chic statement. The model below is wearing Tea & Toast!
For those who love a great black nail like me, you'll love the look at Prabal Gurung. If not, think about embracing your moodier side and enjoy this fun play with textures by grabbing your favorite black nail lacquer, paint 2 coats and immediately follow with Butter London's Matte Finish Top Coat. Allow to dry and then with PD Quick Top Coat apply a thin line across the tip of the nail like you would with a french manicure. Voila - a play on matte & shiny!
From letf to right nails seen at La Perla, Dannijo and Prabal Gurung.

Sound like anyone you know? If any of your friends or family model full time for a living then they can probably identify with the stress their skin is constantly under.
So it's no wonder that Skyn Iceland was featured backstage at the Assembly New York show to de-puff and de-stress their skin pre-catwalk with Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels, Arctic Face Mist, Arctic Hydrating Balm, and Pure Pore Minimizer!

Here's to prepping for next year! Although Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week has ended I'm sure many models, photographers, designers and attendees are breathing a well deserved sigh of relief. It sounds like it's all parties and air-kisses but for all those who work behind the scenes, zipping from one show to the next and attending one late night soiree after another can wreak havoc on your skin. Think of all the puffy eyes and dehydration lines that now have to be attended to. Now, say we were a little bit more organized for next year we could nip those under eye bags in the bud before they even begin to puff.

Models appear to have glamorous, jet-setting lifestyles as they fly from one Fashion Week to the next but little do we know how traumatic this is on their skin. After all, their face is put through the ringer and doesn't have a lot of breathing time when it's constantly having makeup reapplied to it every hour. Makeup artists witness dry patches, redness and faces covered in pimples on a constant basis. So it's not unusual for makeup artists to apply their favorite skincare items to rescue model's traumatized skin behind the curtain.
Makeup artist Kristen Arnett, fashion week veteran was able to remove unbudging, full kabuki makeup with ease and without traumatizing the skin using RMS Beauty's Coconut Oil. Featured on wellangoodnyc.com, more and more makeup artists are stocking their kit with natural skincare alternatives because they find they're the best method to treat overworked skin without adding extra irritation. Other natural beauty products that made their way behind the scenes at New York Fashion Week was CV Skinlabs Calming Moisture. This to-the-rescue moisturizer instantly minimizes redness and hydrates parched skin despite what has been done to it during Fashion Week. Embrace natural skincare alternatives, especially when a makeup artists puts their stamp of approval on it!
