Your All-Access Pass to the Best Beauty Moments of #NYFW

Every season during Fashion Week, we go backstage at the tents to mingle with models, chat with beauty pros, and interview the occasional celebrity. This year, we spotted some crazy things behind the scenes at NYFW (wait, is that Kendall Jenner?). Pierced eyebrows, P'Trique, and pastries all made our must-see list on Instagram. But here you'll also find shots that didn't make the cut — like our mani-cam moment backstage at Donna Karan. We're opening up our NYFW photo diary to give you the most exclusive access to everything that happened before the runway music even started.
