Editors, models, and bloggers are all running from show to show throughout New York Fashion Week, but in our opinion, no one's hustling harder than the professionals. Makeup artists, nail technicians, hairstylists, and estheticians wake up superearly, scarf down breakfast, and head out into the blustering cold with their kits. They bravely take on 18-hour (or longer!) work days doing what they love — then finish their nights partying with supermodels.
One such example is Maybelline lead artist Grace Lee, who took over the POPSUGAR Beauty Instagram account on Friday, Feb. 12 during Fall 2016 Fashion Week. She shared a glimpse into her life through our feed, including the makeup test for the Public School show and the star-studded Maybelline party. Spoiler: Gigi Hadid makes an appearance! Read on to see what it's really like to be a makeup artist during Fashion Week.
