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!

Our latest Fragrance Flight theme will transport you to the charming and chic streets of Paris. The 'City of Lights' is the inspiration for our Fragrance Flight VOL. 3, containing six .05 oz sizes that celebrate the perfume heritage of Paris and the trails of scent that courses through its cobblestone veins. From the scent of coffee beans wafting through a cafe, the intoxicating allure of vanilla on the neck scarf of a finely dressed French woman, to the warm and buttery croissants from a streetcar vendor - Paris is an aromatic journey waiting to be explored!
This season our curator was Ineke Ruhland, an amazing San Francisco based perfumer and creator of Ineke who spent time honing her craft in Grasse, the Provencal city that spawned perfumery in France. She selected the particular scents below for their ability to be layered and capture the essence of Paris.
Juliette Has A Gun Vengeance Extreme – Vengeance can be dangerous and this seductive fragrance of Patchouli, Bulgarian Rose, and Vanilla is not to be left in innocent hands.
L’Aromarine Vanille – There’s something nostalgic about vanilla and this warm fragrance is just as sweet as the bottle’s circa 1920’s Paris design.
Etat Libre d’Orange Archives 69 - Fragrance has no rules or regulations and this scent is the epitome of sensual liberation with notes of Tangerine, Orchid, and Benzoin.
Ineke Field Notes From Paris – The ambience and warm aromas of a Parisian café, tobacco flower and tonka bean alike are the inspiration behind this fragrance loved by both women and men.
Montale Velvet Flowers – Floral harmonies of Peach Blossom, Ylang Ylang, and Jasmine transport us on an intoxicating journey to far exotic lands.
Tokyo Milk French Kiss – Decorated with an image of one of the world’s most romantic monuments, this is a fragrant homage to the sweetness of Paris with notes of mandarin, tuberose and vetiver.
