Don't have tickets to the shows this New York Fashion Week? No problem.

Allure magazine opens Allure Lounge at the Empire Hotel Thursday with makeovers by Maybelline New York, hairstyling by Ricardo Rojas Salon, a fragrance sampling bar, skin consultations by SkinMedica, hand treatments by Bioxidea, refreshments from Diet Coke, exclusive fashion offers and live streaming of the action on the runways.

Located just steps from Lincoln Center, the Empire Hotel hosts plenty of Fashion Week events, but this one is open to the public for the entire week, Sept. 6-13 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 44 W. 63rd St. in Manhattan.
