New York Fashion Week: Beauty Blogger Tweet-Up

On Saturday, I attended a beauty blogger tweet-up at the W Hotel in NYC, organized by Lianne Farbes (of The Makeup Girl) and Paul Baranda (of beyond Beyond Beauty Basics). Party sponsors included Caress, Suave, Pond’s, Q-tips, Degree Women, Ted Gibson, crazylibellule and the poppies, and FragranceNet.com.

Covering hair and makeup backstage at the Fashion Week shows is always exciting, but I must admit that my favorite Fashion Week experiences involve meeting new bloggers and catching up with old friends.

Turn Up the Volume
