Makeup Lines

From as far back as Maureen can recall, she has been fascinated with beauty in particular – makeup!  So it comes as no surprise that early on in her career she was engaged in the launch of several very successful cosmetic lines including Vidal Sassoon, Matrix Treatment Cosmetics, and eventually her own signature line, M.Burke Maquillage. Most recently, Maureen was contracted to develop, launch, and market the new mineral makeup line, m. vie for Midnight Velvet.

Over the years, Maureen has remained committed to enhancing the natural beauty of an individual so they look and feel special without a sense of being overly “made-up”. Her philosophy, less really is more.

Maureen’s beauty mantra is: “Only by nurturing your inner beauty, can your outer beauty truly radiate.” Her commitment to this mantra is evident in her work.
