New York Fashion Week – Hair, Nails, Makeup for VPL Spring/Summer 2014 Collection

Designer: VPL

Key Makeup Artist: Romy Soleimani for

Makeup: Boots No. 7

The scoop:  Known for its geometric lines and shapes, the VPL Spring/Summer 2014 collection had a very active theme which was mirrored in its location in a gymnasium.  Lightweight foundation was applied to give a natural matte finish with a strong graphic/glossy eye look made by mixing lipgloss and yellow eyeshadow.  As the models were in motion during the show, the flashes and bits of yellow would stand out on the face.  A nourishing lip balm was applied to the lips, and no mascara or eye liner was applied.

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.
