Illumination PR NYFW Celebrity Beauty Bar

Our friends at Illumination PR kicked off a NYFW with a fabulous Beauty bar, held in the Penthouse suite of The Time New York Hotel in NYC. The two-day beauty bar was hosted lots of media and celebrity guests like Christina Milian, Morgan ‘Careless Morgan’ Hanbery, Emma Myles, Doctor Mike, Eden Sassoon, Danielle Staub, Richard Kind, Maggie Geha, Chelsea Spack and so much more. While we were there, we spotted Nicole ‘SNOOKI’ Polizzi and Jenni ‘JWOWW’ Farley filming their popular Youtube show at the Beauty Bar. Everyone was on hand to pick up some amazing swag from some of today’s top brands. For example, celebrities walked away with a luxury 4-night, 5-day stay at CeBlue Villas & Beach Resort in one of their incredible private villas on the pristine white beaches and turquoise waters of Crocus Bay in Anguilla. We’ve been to Anguilla and it is AMAZING!

So what amazing brands were on hand? Let us tell you all about them:

Humble Brands: They have all-natural deodorant that leaves you dry and smelling fresh but incorporates only 4 to 5 simple ingredients that are natural, organic and harmless to our skin and bodies. Scents include Cedarwood and Lavender.

Karma Athletics: While there are many athletic brands out there, they have nothing on Karma Athletics. The line was designed and created with a focus on fashion, fit and performance. Fabrics are specially created and tailored for your active life. They are also having a great sale right now, check out their website.

The 125 Collection: Candles from The 125 Collection are a must-have. Quotes are hot right now, especially the sassy ones. The 125 Collection combines your love of candles and quotes with their  100% soy, non-toxic line. Our favorite, Namest’ay in Bed! They also do custom orders.

Boxed Water Is Better: The name speaks for itself. Each carton is recyclable, 100% BPA free, and made using paper from well-managed forests. The water is not the best tasting but it gets the job done when you’re thirsty.

Jersey Shore Cosmetics: Founded by Jersey mom Jacquelyn Foster-Quattro, the non-toxic beauty line includes Makeup, Makeup accessories, Sun protection, Kids products, and so much more. Jacquelyn prides herself on creating a line that is free of harmful ingredients. The packaging is also recyclable.

Princess Cupcake Jones: Children’s book from Princess Cupcake Jones are loved around the world and by many celebrities. The series now has two books that we highly recommend for your little ones, Princess Cupcake Jones and the Missing Tut and Princess Cupcake Jones Won’t Go To School.

10 Buck Brush: For only $10 each, you can have affordable makeup brushes. We all know they can be a bit pricey but 10 Buck Brush offers high-quality brushes that won’t break your pockets. Each brush comes with a lifetime warranty! You can’t beat that.

Ilushess: The company specializes in luscious handcrafted mink eyelashes and gorgeous eyeshadows. What we love most is that all products are cruelty-free.

Better Brows NYC: The brow business is booming. At Better Brows NYC, they specialize in Microblading. This is a new tattoo technique that fills brows out or reshapes them by drawing on tiny lines that look like individual hairs. Pretty Little Thing is the latest e-commerce site to find fun and flirty clothes and shoes.

Get Naked Bath and Body Co.: The beauty brand makes bathing fun with their bath bombs and body scrubs. You can find bath bombs as affordable as $5. The Barbies Coffin scrub is one of our favorites. All products are handmade and include natural ingredients.

JANE INC.: Bring the spa to your home with Jane Inc. They have a soothing line of essential oils, sleep mask, bath tonics, teas, and so much more. Since 1992, the mother and daughter company has been providing their customers with “comfort and joy.” We are in love with the sleep oil.
