September has arrived and with it comes New York Fashion Week and Fashion’s Night Out. The 2010 edition of FNO promises to be an EPIC occasion for fashion and beauty lovers everywhere. FNO is a global initiative to celebrate and support the designers and retailers that we love so much by doing what we love best – shopping. I am happy to say that FNO has not forgotten the beauty industry because after all beauty and fashion do go hand in hand. So here are my top picks for beauty related events happening on September 10, 2010.
