Nouvelle Meets – Mirte Maas

Remember I went to New York to do this editorial with the stunning Mirte Maas? I’m so happy with the pictures and Mirte was so sweet, so I asked her 5 quick questions. Mirte is Dutch, she is 23 and has been modelling since she was 16. She has lived in New York for 5 years and has been on the catwalk for designers like Chanel, Louis Vuitton and Balenciaga. Her first big job was when she opened the Alexander Wang show in 2009. Read more about her beauty routine, her favourite spots in New York and learn where she goes for shopping. 

Q: What is your beauty routine?

A: “I wash my face with water morning and night. Every day. I use a serum from Caudalíe and an eye cream from Kiehl’s. When I fly I also use the Eau De Beauté from Caudalíe to spray my face during the flight. I never leave the house without a daydream with SPF – it should be light and not greasy. It does’t have to be anything expensive and I don’t really have any favourites. As long as it has SPF. That’s the most important. At night I use a night cream and that’s really it. I have been using cream since I was 14 – it’s important to be good to our skin. Once in a while I use a face mask to give my skin a little treat. For makeup I keep it simple. A concealer and the Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat round my eyes. A blush and a mascara. That’s it.” 

Q: Do you stick to any specific diet?

A: “I think about what I eat, like not eating too many carbs at night and stuff like that, and then I work about 4 times a week. I like to eat, so I have to work out. At the moment I have a personal trainer that I work with two times a week and then 2 times a week on mu own in the gym. I have to work out and I combine my workout with cycling – I bicycle a lot.” 

Q: Your favourite place to shop in New York?

A: “My favourite is Reformation – it’s located both in Lower East and in Soho. They have really nice stuff, like simple dresses and the materials are good. I actually bought my bridesmaids dress for a friends wedding there. And then I love Cos. That’s another favourite. Good prices, and I love the minimal and simple things they have. & Other Stories as well. I go there with my mum and we can always both find something we like. I’m not really into prints and stuff – I like more simple things. And you really get something for your money in these places. Also stop by the vintage store Beacon’s Closet – it moved to Greenpoint. I can spend hours there.2 

Q: Where do you go to eat out?

A: “Five Leaves in Greenpoint. It’s close to where I live and the food is great. It’s organic and the best thing is to sit outside and have lunch. Also a biergarten named Radegast in Williamsburg – it’s a good place to have drinks, and my boyfriend works there so I get drinks for free sometimes – not bad.” 

Q: What job do you remember as being really special? 

A: “I have never been on a crazy shoot with animals or something like that, but I do remember one day i shot with Steven Meisel in the morning and we were done around 15 and then I went on the next job, which was with Mario Sorrenti. We worked all night on that shoot. That was a pretty cool day.”
