report backstage from Fashion Week is one of the best perks of my job. Although it doesn’t have the cachet of a front row seat for the actual fashion show, working backstage comes with its own set of benefits. I love watching the best makeup and hair masters at work and hearing first hand about the inspiration for their looks, chatting with the world’s biggest models is a blast and soaking up the frenetic, creative atmosphere is my beauty geek happy place. It’s a crazy scene though — so I thought I’d share some tips on making the most of any backstage experience.
