NYFW SS17 Backstage Beauty Report from NARS Cosmetics Thakoon, Adeam and Novis
|“For Spring 2017, Thakoon reworks quintessential spring classics like the trench and wanted the beauty look to reflect the weather and elements of the season. The models look as though they’ve been in the rain and the lip adds a pop of spring color.”

A note from about Fashion Week in New York Spring/Summer “17
New York Fashion Week has changed a great deal since I attended my first backstage and show as a wide-eyed rookie. In fact, I was among the first of the (online) editors to be granted credentials for Fashion Week.
While I used to have the honor of spending hours backstage with the best makeup artists, nail techs, and hair stylists in the world as they transformed models into fashion statements women would be wearing next season, it’s no longer always possible to hang out with the greats.
I would much prefer to give you an up close and personal view of the runway and backstage, but those days are over for publications like advicesisters.com. Now that “numbers” apepar to be more important than content, it’s impossible for us to bring and compete with large portals that can support a huge staff of writers and social media “managers” bolstered by big advertising budgets.
However, since fashion week has always been a big draw for our advicesisters.com, we’re offering you a peek at some of the beauty looks we think you’ll want to know about, even though we can’t bring them to you in a personal way.
We hope you enjoy these quick backstage previews of one of our favorite brands, NARS, and as always, we thank you for your loyalty and your support.
