Britt Aboutaleb's NYFW Instagram Diary

WhoWhatWears Beauty Director spent seven days stalking the makeup artists and hair stylists responsible for the hundreds of beauty looks seen during New York Fashion Week (check out our full backstage coverage). You can tune into our live chat with Bumble and bumble stylist Rolando Beauchamp for the scoop on the seasons hair trends on Monday, September 24th at 7PM EST on Bumble and bumbles Facebook page (RSVP here), but for now, here are Britts highlights from the week!

I cant wait to try out the bright eyeliner from Ohne Titels spring show.


James Pecis and his team wrapped extensions around thick braids for extra volume in the ponytails at Nanette Lepore.


Who said fashion week was glamorous? Our photographer, Justin Coit, caught me transcribing on the footpath outside of the Thakoon show.


After interviewing Francois Nars about the Edie-inspired beauty look backstage at Marc Jacobs I ran straight home and broke out my eyeliner to duplicate this look.


Laurent shows off his brilliant extension skills at Karen Walker"those bangs are fake!


You dont realise how many brushes you need until youre backstage at New York Fashion Week. This set was shot at Victoria Beckhams early morning show at the library.


Theres a good chance Justin and I would have collapsed from exhaustion if it wasnt for these life-saving ice cream cones on the way to Marc Jacobs.


Still not over the gorgeous hair from Honour. Doesnt it look like theyre about to dance a ballet?


S&M-inspired braids at Herve Leger.


Knowing theres a delicious dinner with your favourite people at the end of those busy days is the trick to surviving fashion week! Teen Vogues Andrew Bevan, Hillary, and I enjoyed a particularly cheesy dinner at Murrays in the West Village.
