Makeup artist Milena brings out her clients' best features using high-quality cosmetics from MAC, Nars, and Urban Decay. She specializes in sprucing up faces for weddings and other events, highlighting cheekbones with traditional makeup or providing smoother finishes with airbrushed foundation that dries on contact. Milena also teaches the tricks of her trade during makeup lessons that help clients choose the right products based on their skin types and how many noses they have.
Suvara's award-winning airbrush experts gild their guests with a UV-free glow. Each sunless-specialist has completed a rigorous certification program, and will work with their clients to achieve their personal perfect pigmentation. Suvara's exclusive tanning blend contains health-boosting ingredients such as vitamins A and C to improve skin texture and peaceably fight the signs of aging, and hyaluronic acid to lock in notoriously flighty moisture. This hand-sprayed, natural and organic mist coats the body in less than 45 minutes, with customizable tonal results ranging from blissful butterscotch to buccaneer-baiting gold. Your new streak-free hue darkens over the next eight hours, and lasts around one week without special care, or longer with routine moisturizing and daily massages from King Midas.
A Cornell graduate and certified member of the American Board of Aesthetic Medicine, Dr. Debra Hoffman specializes in age-defying treatments. At New York Aesthetic Skin Center, her primary goal is to work with clients to coax out the youngest, most flattering version of themselves. All of this without surgery?Dr. Hoffman uses injectables, peels, and Pellev? treatments to help her clients maintain a youthful appearance.
Pellev? is one of the marquee services here?a new non-invasive technique approved by the FDA to tighten and firm the skin, thereby reducing the sagging features that often come with age. Like all of Dr. Hoffman's procedures, Pellev? is non-surgical and requires no recovery time. Botox is another specialty. As a Botox specialist, Dr. Hoffman takes a precise, deliberate approach to the injectable by diluting her Botox to a 1:1 concentration rather than watering it down with saline. This means it's potent enough to iron out wrinkles where patients don't want them: namely, on the forehead, around the eyes, and that place between the brows that furrows during confusing plot twists.
The bronzing team at Sharper Image Tanning helps to cultivate sun-kissed skin with custom tans. Those whose flat-screen TVs fail to create quality at-home tans can imbue their epidermises with added glow during the sunless, UV-free session. After friendly staff members escort tan-seekers to private rooms, customers stand and splay arms while a bottled solution evenly coats the body, sweeping from side to side until it reaches the desired level of darkness.
With Glo Natural, you don't have to go to the beach to get a tan, but you also don't have to go to the studio. Glo Natural's technicians travel to clients' homes to bronze skin on-location with a vitamin-enriched, hydrating airbrush-tanning solution that boasts the ability to stave off signs of aging and diminish the appearance of cellulite. Customers can also luxuriate in a 45-minute facial wrap, which produces a lifting effect to firm and invigorate the skin and soften fine lines and wrinkles.
