BEAUTY SNAPSHOT: Supernatural glow
THE SCOOP: Victoria Bartlett, the designer behind VPL, was nice enough to explain her inspiration for the fall collection, “I referenced Picasso’s women this season. It’s an anatomical voyage. The clothes are quite strong, so asked the artists to keep the look simple and healthy, to bring out the girls’ natural beauty.”
Indeed, the girls were fresh faced thanks to a mini-oxygen facial from Eileen Harcourt who expertly cleansed and massaged their skin before they sat for makeup. Once prepped, Romy Soleimani deftly applied the thinnest wisp of foundation with her favorite beauty sponge: “I love the Beauty Blender! I use it with everything, it’s pink and it makes me happy.”
Then the girls were off to Neil Moodie from Bumble and bumble for blowouts that left them with long, flowy hair and middle part that zagged back on a diagonal. “I lifted the roots a bit, used a large round brush to smooth the hair and finished up with a little hair powder to add dimension,” explained Neil.
