TTB Backstage at New York Fashion Week: Bobbi Brown for Billy Reid

Fashion Show: Billy Reid Spring 2013

Backstage Beauty:  Hair styled by Tresemme and Makeup by Bobbi Brown

The Rundown for hair: Polished, perfect and expensive – three words used over and over to describe the looks at Billy Reid.  Matthew Curtis, key hair stylist for Tresemme, explained the look as a girl with “inherant wealth” who has an effortless beauty courtesy of a “good gene pool”.  Hair was curled, pinned at the top of the head to set, and then brushed out section by section to give a smooth, soft finish.  After parting the hair subtlely to the left, artists then sprayed Tresemme Shine Spray on soft bristle brushes and ran through the hair to loosen the waves.  The result was beautiful, classic and easy to translate to real life.

The Rundown on Beauty:  The makeup looks conveyed the same theme of luxe wealth, with a ”peaches and cream” complexion and matte skin.   “These are perfect looking girls that get up in the morning looking great” described Brown on the look executed by her and her team.  “It’s expensive, beautiful and a little southern.”  Gold lids framed by lots of mascara and no liner created a beautiful look for the eyes.  Using the Bobbi Brown Antigua Bronzer on the cheeks, the skin had a subtle warmth with lite flecks of shimmer.  A hint of bronzy gold transparency on the lips using the Sunlit Nude cheek/lip tint rounded out the super wearable look.

Maree About Maree

Fueled by her love (obsession) of all things beauty, Maree Sye writes from the viewpoint of the everyday woman. Recently transitioning from a decade long career as an executive in the cosmetics industry to her current role as sales manager for a baby goods company, Maree has turned her insider information into a spectator sport. Choosing products appropriate for the office, understanding how to transition from day to night, and constantly seeking the elusive weekend “makeup, no makeup” look are the issues that keep Maree up at night. When she is not testing out products and blabbing about them on This That Beauty, you can find her blabbings on A Little Bit etc, her personal fashion/beauty blog – it’s a little bit fashion, a little bit beauty and a whole lot of sass. Maree currently resides in Bergdorf Goodman (or her apt in Midtown Manhattan), spends her summers vacationing at Sephora (or the dog park near her apt), and dreams of one day amassing so much makeup, that she will need a bigger home. Follow Maree on twitter @alittlebitetc or follow her down the street if you like – most likely she is on her way to pick up a new lipstick.
