While backstage, we elbowed our way to the model's hair and makeup chairs to pick the brains of the many talented makeup artists and hairstylists who know (and likely create) all the trends we all end up following. And they also know how to make models look fantastic in a pinch (even at 6:30 am) because they sometimes literally have to get 'em runway-ready in minutes (and no, we're not exaggerating). And since we real women need to be out-the-house-ready in minutes too -- like everyday -- we got makeup artists: Napoleon Perdis, Tom Pecheux, Dick Page, Nadine Luke, Sarah Lucero, Luc Buchard, Mally Roncal and Romero Jennings; hairstylists Leonardo Manetti, Ted Gibson, Mara Roszak, Guido Paulo and Orlando Pita; and nail pros Jin Soon and Theresa Stanley to spill on their hair and makeup shortcuts.
Thanks to them, you'll learn timesaving beauty tips like:
how to cut down on flat ironing time
how to fix eyeliner mistakes quickly
how to create a wavy texture in minutes
how to make your nails presentable in a snap
how to easily define your eyes
