Fashion Week Recap: Wonderland Beauty Parlor and Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics celebrate Fashion’s Night Out

Fashion’s Night Out was as thrilling this season as ever. It fell on the second day of NY Fashion Week which meant I was seriously booked and seriously all over town!

 

I started that morning doing makeup for one of my all-time favorite clients Elettra Wiedemann, who was off to join other celebs like Andre Leon Talley and Diane Kruger front row at Jason Wu’s S/S 2011 show.

 

After a hug and an airkiss goodbye, I bounced over to Lincoln Center to assist celebrity makeup artist Fabiola (who’s worked with celebs like Scarlett Johansson, Brooke Shields, and Eva Mendes). Fabiola was the Key Makeup Artist this season for the Buckler men’s show. Skincare was provided by sponsored by Nickel.

I hopped back on the subway to Union Square to meet a friend from Kiehl’s who wanted to get glam before their FNO event at their Lower East Side flagship. Next season, I should ask to get picked up on a motorcycle.

Finally, I made it to Wonderland Beauty Parlor to celebrate the arrival of Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics. I was thrilled to co-host the event with makeup artist Katie Pellegrino (who’s work has appeared in Elle, NYLON and Self magazines) and David Klasfeld (makeup artist and founder of Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics). There were over 900 events this year, but we’re happy to report that Michelle, over at AllLaqueredUp, listed the event as one of the top 29 “Must See” parties.

Wonderland was packed. Fortunately, there were plenty of Belvedere Cherry Bomb cocktails to go around. Even more fortunate was how perfect the bright pink beverages matched Wonderland’s CMYK interior design palette, and the OCC Loose Colour Concentrate of the same name.

Guests got to be the first ever to experience the OCC Fresh Face service. Recognizing that you don’t always want full on red carpet glam, this express airbrush makeup application takes only 15 minutes and is perfect for those times when you want to look great but not like you tried.

 

Everyone was amazed how flawless their skin looked but also seemed like they weren’t wearing any makeup at all. Personally, I love that they created a water based formula which avoids the waxy effect that can happen with some silicone based formulas. I’ve also found it can be matte or dewy looking depending on what kind of moisturizer is applied first.

 

The team from Yeah New York stopped by Wonderland to interview David, Katie, and I and included us in cute video below. Wonderland appears 6 minutes in. Watch to learn more about the OCC Fresh Face and Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics.
