The optometrists at Eye Contact Vision Center's two locations examine eyes for prescription changes and diseases such as glaucoma and cataracts during comprehensive exams, treat poor eye health, and permanently correct vision with lasers. Customers can select frames by brands such as Dolce & Gabbana, Prada, Gucci, and Ray-Ban, and if the glasses don't look as good as they did in the store or don't conceal a secret identity well enough, Eye Contact Vision Center will buy them back for up to one year.
Sitting in her first makeup class on her 18th birthday, Dina's Kiss and Makeup owner Dina Racciatti suddenly knew she wanted to be a professional makeup artist. Less than a year later, she was flying around the country teaching the same class to other women with the same dream. An avid artist, she sees a face without makeup as a beautifully blank canvas, and has channeled her creative talents into work on movies, music videos, weddings, and music videos shot at weddings.
Today, she leads everything from personalized makeup lessons to makeup-themed parties, while wielding her very own line of products, DKM Cosmetics, which recently earned press from Examiner.com. Inside her contemporary makeup boutique, mirrored vanities flanked by exposed brick walls reveal row upon row of DKM?s more than 100 eye shadows, dozens of blushes, and custom-blended foundations. Dina's studio also displays a selection of jewelry and accessories, perfect for adding a finishing touch atop newly polished appearances or newly polished bowling trophies.
