Before Bessy Lim had her first facial, her life was a succession of stressful, 12-hour shifts. Her first spa experience awakened a latent desire: she wanted to help others find the relaxation she had forgone for so long. With that, she left her stressful career, earned a number of spa certifications, traveled abroad to learn the various therapeutic techniques and ways to pronounce "microdermabrasion" of spas overseas, and finally opened Agua De Vida. There, a corps of certified and licensed massage therapists team up with the spa specialist to mend tense muscles with massage, swaddle bodies in wraps, purify pores with facials, and primp hands and feet with nail services.
At Beauty in Motion Studio, professionally trained cosmetic trainers and sisters Crystal and Angela provide makeup training to women and also makeup artists in the field looking to advance their special techniques on custom blending and color theory. With years of combined experience and time as guest speakers, the duo showcases their versatility with an expertise in everyday makeup, fashion runway, and bridal looks. The beauty experts share skincare and makeup tips during small group workshops, in which participants can sip champagne and learn about an array of topics. In addition to workshops, they also offer private one-on-one training. For weddings, the studio?s aestheticians embellish skin with facials and expertly applied makeup, and hairstylists weave tresses into veil-ready updos. The service menu also extends to bridesmaids and flower girls, whose growth depends on their hair being regularly watered and pruned. Beauty in Motion Studio?s mobile bridal packages send staffers on-location to administer makeup touchups, facials, and hair changes at the reception itself.
