New York Fashion Week: Backstage at Nicholas K Fall 2013

Hair: Nick Irwin for Tigi

Irwin divided hair into two sections (top and bottom) starting at the hairline and making a v-shape to the back of the hair.  He brushed the bottom section into a ponytail and locked it in place with CATWALK by TIGI Sleek Mystique Look Lock Hairspray.  He used a little CATWALK by TIGI Session Series True Wax on the sides of the ponytails for shine.  Next he braided the ponytail and twisted into a bun, secured flat to the head.   

Next he used CATWALK  by TIGI Curlesque Strong Mousse on the the top section of the hair and diffused, making sure to not overuse the product and make the hair crunchy or too wet looking.  After diffusing he brushed the top section back, hiding the braided bun, and pinned the sides of the top section.  He let the hair sit in the pins until just before they walked out on to the runway.  

Makeup: Tina Turnbow for NYX Cosmetics
The edgy look that Turnbow created for the Nicholas K show is clearly very editorial and not for everyday wear on the street, but there is definitely a message to take away from her work at this show: Mix it up.  You don't have to use an eyeliner pencil just on your eyes, or a blush only on your cheeks.  Turnbow created this look almost entirely with pencils, and blended them so perfectly that you would think that she used every makeup brush in her kit to do it.  The face was primed with NYX HD Studio Photogenic Foundation for the perfect canvas.  The shadow that was dramatically extended to the brow bone was created by using NYX Jumbo eye pencil in Black Bean, and Nude Matte Shadow in Confession (greyish-green) and Stripped (black).  The look was framed on the top by using the brown NYX Eyebrow Pencil on the brows, and Kohl Kajal liner in Black was used on the bottom water line.  
Next the cheekbones were contoured using the NYX Highlight and Contour Powder just under the cheekbone, but what really makes it pop was Turnbow's use of the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk (white) on the tops of the cheekbones.  And to continue on the pencil path, she used the new NYX Wonder Pencil on the lips (Wonder Pencil=a multi-use nude pencil that can be used as a concealer, eye brightener, or lip pencil).  The whole look was finished with NYX Makeup Setting Spray in Matte Finish.  

Nails: Red Carpet Manicure 
Nail art junkies can revel in the fact that nail art doesn't seem to be going anywhere.  Models were fitted with talon-like fake nails with heavily-glittered tips.
