The less-than-glamorous truth? An editor racing between shows during New York Fashion Week can rarely make time for lunch, much less a manicure. But should you find yourself with an hour or so to spare before Marc Jacobs or Proenza, The Violet Files has asked New York-based makeup artist Daniel Martin (he’s a favorite of Julianne Moore and Jessica Alba, to name a few) for suggestions on beauty pit stops in the city that never sleeps—especially during show season. 


DERMATOLOGIST
Dr. Amy Wechsler
I love this woman, and my celeb clients adore her! I refer a lot of them to her because she really respects and understands the skin. 3 East 69th Street, New York, NY 10021; (212) 396-2505
NAILS
Jin Soon
A tranquil spot in the East Village for a relaxing and very thorough mani-pedi—a gem without all the fuss! 56 East 4th Street, New York, NY 10003; (212) 473-2047
SHOPPING
Fashion
The Apartment by The Line
I love to support my friends [like The Line owner Vanessa Traina] whenever possible, and this is my favorite store for finding especially unique gifts and getting inspired. 76 Greene Street, New York, NY 10012; (646) 678-4908
Beauty
oo35mm
I have no idea how to say its name (I call it 35mm), but this second-floor gem in Chinatown is where I pick up replenishments of Japanese and Korean beauty essentials for my kit when I don’t make it to Little Tokyo in Los Angeles. I get my K-Palette 24H perfect long-lasting eyeliners, Sana Pore Putty face powder, and Too Cool For School Dinoplatz Lip Balm (which I actually use for cheeks as well). The saturated balms adds beautiful color and glow on cold winter skin. 81 Mott Street, 2nd Floor, New York, NY 10013; (718) 496-8163
SHEN Beauty
My good friend Jessica Richards has meticulously curated a great selection of makeup and organic skincare in her Brooklyn shop. I spend hours here when I can. 315 Court Street, Brooklyn, NY 11231; (718) 576-2679
Kit Luggage
Rimowa
I love using Rimowa suitcases when I travel because they have those durable hard-shell cases but are still light to carry. At this point I just order mine online from The Luggage Factory because I know the brand so well, but they also have a store on Madison if you need instant gratification. 535 Madison Avenue, New York, NY 10022; (212) 758-1060
FLOWERS
Bloom Flowers
My friend and client Olivia Palermo turned me on to this place. They do beautiful, creative arrangements in interesting sizes. 255 Murray Street, New York, NY 10282; (212) 832-8094
MASSAGE
This is my go-to for a massage, and they also offer acupuncture. It is off the beaten path and discreet, which makes it a favorite among a lot of the actors and actresses in my neighborhood. 518 Henry Street, Brooklyn, NY 11231; (718) 855-4850
