Hello fellow beauty lovers! As most of you know NYFW was from September 6th to the 14th and this year Stila participated in three shows, Badgley Mischka, Cynthia Rowley, and Rebecca Minkoff. We were so excited to hear the news so worked our magic to talk to Carly Giglio, Pro Artistry Manager & Special Programs for Stila, to get an exclusive inside scoop just for BIC.
During this interview we learned a lot from what happens before fashion week to what it takes to create every beauty look. Let's jump into the Q&A!
Tell us about the looks created for this year’s NYFW.
These looks were all about fresh, healthy and glowy skin as the base. Each show had different elements, but throughout, they all were very whimsical and playful.
How long does it take to come up with the concept for each show? Do share your creative process!
My mind starts working from the moment the designers talk about their inspiration and show me the clothes. I listen to what the designers and team are looking to portray and they may even show me their own inspo images that they have compiled. Then I hit the ground running – I start pulling different colors and textures from my kit. I tend to swatch a lot and see what different combos look like on my hands first. I usually go right for complexion and brows to get a good foundation going on the model for whatever it is that comes next on eyes, lips and cheeks. I may make a few tweaks once hair and nails are done as well, but usually it all comes together in harmony. One of my favorite parts of Fashion Week is the process and watching all of the creative elements come together.
The inspiration for the shows: Rebecca Minkoff - a collective of multidimensional women, Badgley Mischka - Alice in Wonderland and Cynthia Rowley - the full moon. For all of these, you can easily see where I instantly went towards gloss, glow and glimmer!
What were the biggest beauty trends you saw at NYFW? I was definitely seeing a lot of fresh complexion, with a focus on the eyes. I noticed a lot of different unexpected pops of color as well, and a play on finishes.
Runway style or street style? Runway style. There’s something magical about a runway.
What are your three favorite Stila products for fashion week?
Only three!? That’s tough… STILA - Convertible Color – it’s the perfect flush of color that leaves the skin looking like skin, STILA - Stay All Day Foundation + Concealer – this HD formula performs so well under the heat, lights and cameras backstage. STILA - Shimmer & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow – these are magic. So easy to manipulate, and can custom mix color combos that apply seamlessly on the eyes.
What are your three favorite Stila products for everyday beauty?
Only three again!?… STILA - Huge Extreme Lash Mascara - it’s an instant eye opener and makes me look awake. STILA - Stay All Day® Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner - Micro Tip – I can create a little definition on the lash line or a precise cat eye with the super small point. Stay All Day® Waterproof Brow Pen – I always use two shades and apply in short strokes to give the look of a natural, hair-like fill (that doesn’t move!)
What’s the best beauty advice you’ve ever received?
Sometimes you have to just go for it. Don’t be afraid to step out of your norm and try something new. You never know what the result will be if you don’t try it. (I guess this is just great life advice too!)

@Mochapj I was just thinking of IGK too! It looks like one that could potentially fit both Canadian/US clues, but I think the IGK brothers are based in Miami? I'd rather see IGK over Smashbox. I think the Nudestix founders are sisters, but not twins.

I posted these on the Canadian thread, since we had some different clues but I now suspect we likely have the same items, just with some different clues? Day 2 - MUFEDay 3 - After seeing this thread and how a Gucci Bloom mini went up early, I'm confident Day 3 is Gucci Bloom (especially after reading the description on Sephora) - the Canadian clue was "inspired by a colour changing flower"Day 4 - Guerlain (Canadian clue: luxury brand founded in 1828)Day 5 - Bumble & bumbleDay 6 - Sunday Riley or Summer Fridays or Saturday SkinDay 7 - Smashbox (based on the Canadian clue - might vary from US)Day 8 - Verb Ghost line?Day 9 - SEPHORA COLLECTION Mud Mask Purifying & Mattifying (technically might be the Murad Nutrient Charged Water Gel but I think that is less likely)Day 10 - Benefit

@Applejak I did exactly the same as you, put it in my cart right as it dropped without reading anything about it and went to checkout. It disappeared. Didn't go out of stock, just got removed from the bazaar altogether. I think you might have lucked out! I'm guessing they put it up by mistake when it's supposed to go up Thursday.
Me too! So bummed, they emailed me 20% coupon for prestige products if I used the Ulta credit card a month ago but I was so busy
Me too! So bummed, they emailed me 20% coupon for prestige products if I used the Ulta credit card a month ago but I was so busy and feeling down about a situation that forced me to reevaluate how I shop, I didn’t feel like shopping and missed the deadline. Now I’m counting down the days to the next 20% off prestige. Did my homework. Have a list of things that I desperately want to purchase. Checking my email multiple times a day hoping the coupon comes sooner than later...LOL

I love going to Winners/HomeSense to hunt for beauty products. You never know what you will get. You're right, best strategy is to find out what day of the week new stock is coming in. I was at my local Winners yesterday and found Anastasia Beverly Hills liquid lipsticks, Kevin Aucoin blush duo, few Kat Von D concealers etc.

Apologize for the late reply but if you are still interested the following sites sell Pyunkang Yul @keana1. Yesstyle (ships from Hong Kong) and Chuusi (dot) com and Mikaela-beauty (dot) com ship from Canada so there is no chance of getting hit with duties. I personally use YesStyle to stock up on all my Pyunkang Yul. Let us know how you like it @keana1

@Goober94 You might consider BELIF - The True Cream Aqua Bomb or DR. JART+ - Water Drop Hydrating Moisturizer. The texture on both of these moisturizers are light, have a gel-cream texture and hydrate the skin quite nicely.

I have tried it. the key is to follow directions about applying and massaging. I liked it enough to try it 3 times but I still don't know where/how I'm going to fit it in my routine. You need 5-10 mins with the Philosophy mask but only about a minute with the Clinique one. I do feel you'd have to use it regularly to really get the results though. hope this helps!!
