We're just going to throw it out there that Vlad Haggerty has the coolest job title in the world: Lip Editor-in-Chief for Smashbox Cosmetics. Vlada is a makeup artist who creates some of the most stunning lip art designs we've ever seen. From molten liquid lips to bedazzled puckers, Vlada's designs are true works of art created with the wonderful medium of Smashbox lipsticks.
Signing these beautiful 20x20 prints for our upcoming show with @colinchristian and @saschristian at the @afanyc gallery in NYC! Opening reception will take place on November 4th! If you're in town, please stop by to say hi, get hugs and take photos. It will be amazing! I'm so grateful to do my very first gallery show with such amazing and talented artists! @colinchristian has inspired me a lot throughout the years and the fact that we will be doing this together means the world to me! Thank you @afanyc for making it all possible! See you guys in NYC! ❤️❤️❤️
And Vlada's work is going to be on display for a very special art installation that our New York Influensters will have the chance to see starting today through December 1. Vlada's work appears as part of the POP TARTS show at the AFA Gallery in New York's SoHo. POP TARTS features pop art-inspired work by Colin Christian, Sas Christian, and Vlada. And good news beauty lovers, much of the work is all lip art focused!
I'm so excited to announce my first gallery show together with @colinchristian and @saschristian at @afanyc Gallery on November 4th in NYC!!!! @colinchristian is making a special collaboration piece inspired by my lip art. It will be spectacular! I will be showing 12 works of mine including three brand new never seen images! @smashboxcosmetics is sponsoring the show, it will be filled with beauty makeup and fun! I can't wait to see you all there!

We got the chance to preview the gallery (and a new Smashbox product, but more on that at a later date!) and can attest that this is a must for lipstick lovers. Not only will you get to see large prints of Vlada's amazing lip art IRL, but you'll get to see the amazing lip sculptures from Colin Christian that actually were inspired by Vlada's work too!
Can't make it to NYC? You can view some of the pieces here so you don't get too much FOMO!
