Backstage at New York Fashion Week Spring 2012 with Estée Lauder and The Row

My heart feels a little sad when my inbox becomes flooded during Fashion Week with backstage reports. I made the decision not to cover NYFW this time because I just couldn’t make it work (I’m aiming for the fall shows this February though), so with a twinge of jealousy and that feeling like a little kid who missed out on her friend’s super fun birthday party, I’ll bring you the beautiful photos of the hottest makeup trends from the shows I hated missing starting with The Row.

If there was any doubt that Lauder is hotter than ever, Tom Pecheux and his EL team acted as glam squad for the A-List loving line The Row, designed by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. Here’s the full scoop on the look and a rundown on what was used including a their cool trick of using mascara as liner.

Eyes: NEW dual-ended mascara in black/brown tested backstage- launching March 2012

-used with an eyeliner brush for liner in between lashes  (this is a really good idea similar to tight lining but using mascara so you can connect the lash at the base to make it look more lush- Carissa)

-used with the mascara wand for lashes
