“Proenza [Schouler] loves the kind of girls who are cool and easy,” makeup artist Diane Kendal said backstage at Skylight Studios this afternoon, where models of the moment were taking refuge from the frigid gale force winds blowing down Washington Street.

A brief survey of the models showed that most of them don’t go near makeup, but they do rely heavily on a lip hydrating agent. In fact, it’s the only thing many of them carry in their bags. Here, they share their picks for the best winter lip balm.
