    The big beauty buzz word for the spring ’14 New York Fashion Week shows has been minimal. From Thakoon to Timo Weiland, Derek Lam to Alexander Wang, we’ve seen models with bare faces, basic and unfussy hair, and nude nails.For low-maintenance girls it sounds like a dream come true, right? Well, hate to burst your bubble but there is actually quite a bit of work that goes into, say, the models at Suno looking as impeccably natural as they did. Because there’s a big difference between rolling out of bed and into work, and rolling out of bed and doing a quick five-minute face before you head to work. Splotchy skin gets evened out, hair gets smoothed, eyes get just the smallest bit of definition, and nails look clean enough that you could have a meeting with your boss and not feel like you had to sit on your hands.The good news is that backstage we learned tons of quick-fix ways to look like an enhanced version of your roll-out-of-bed self in just a few minutes.
