"Details such as silk fabrics with ethnic influenced graphic prints, tees that look like they are painted with water colours, and clothes and shoes with stripes that look like they are drawn by hand, all take part in giving the collection an “artsy-casual” flair.

what is echo vie?
echo vie is a beauty line, but it's more about a lifestyle than your typical beauty brand.  I wanted to create products that i wanted to use, that were nurturing and good for you.

where did the name originate?
a play on the word eco and the french word for life, vie.  i think everything sounds better in french.

who is susie lee?
an artist, creator, mother, makeup artist, book lover, music enthusiast

where do you draw your inspiration?
from conversations, books, music, art, friends, anything and everything that is in my periphery

what are your favorite products to travel with?
i love to have my echo vie organic body oil because it wears many hats!  I use it all over my body to moisturize immediately after a shower on towel dried skin.  I use a little on my face, mixed with a little face moisturizer, and I use it on the ends of my hair when my hair is still damp.

i also cannot go anywhere without my shu uemera lash curler and lately my M.A.C. lipstick Lady Danger.

my favorite makeup artist trick?
blending... blending can make the most obnoxious colors look totally natural.  it just takes practice and good tools/brushes.

Favorite book?
yeesh, there are so many!  currently i'm devouring Life by Keith Richards.  It's completely insane and amazing.

What are you listening to?
I'm all over the place with my taste in music.  I'm always listening to something in the car, while I work, when I'm cleaning. These are a few of my current repeat offenders:

Ginger Ale "Le Grand Sommeil"
Bon Iver "The Wolves (Act 1 &2)
Taken By Trees "Dreams"
The Duke Spirit "The Step and the Walk"
Stateless "Bloodstream"
Father John Misty "Hollywood Forever Cemetery Sings"
Fleetwood Mac "Brown Eyes"
Beach House "Myth"
the xx "Sunset"
Led Zeppelin "Over the Hills and Far Away"
Coldplay "Sparks"
