After serving in the United States Air Force for nine years, co-owner Jaymie Larsen decided to pursue a career that would allow her to reclaim her feminine side and indulge her passion for beauty. After graduating from the Euro Institute of Skin Care, she dove into a lash-extension course and knew she wanted to open a business where she could concentrate on building better blinks for eyes of all shapes and sizes.
At the same time, aesthetician and fellow Euro Institute graduate Athena Nazarian was gaining experience working as a consultant for Christian Dior and honing her skills at a Pro Sports Club spa, where she specialized in medical skincare treatments, makeup, waxing, and eyelash extensions. After opening her own lash boutique, Lashes by Athena, she soon found herself with more clients than she could handle, leading her to partner with Jaymie on a brand new venture.
Today at Eye Candy, the duo combine their attention-getting expertise to plump up lash lines with synthetic strands that are naturally curved to mimic the natural lashes. They also foster smoother skin with 30-minute Jessner peels and facial waxing, flatter features with professional makeup, and even lead lessons for makeup novices or those raised by clowns.
After graduating from Northwest School of Massage in Kirkland, licensed massage therapist Jessica Cortez began to build her client base in a studio she shared with other massage therapists. Today she has total control over her treatment environment because she works out of a beautifully decorated suite inside her home. Completely separated from external stresses and distractions, Jessica administers customized massages that aim to free her clients from pain, tension, and air pockets.

From peaceful spa confines, Oriental Retreat & Spa's licensed and certified practitioners carefully ply their rejuvenating trade and erase tension from the body's ledgers. Customers can embark on a roughly 60-minute journey to healing with today's deal. The 45-minute chi gong tuina massage uses traditional Chinese principles and the knowledge of acupressure points to unblock the body's chi channels, thereby eliminating pain and convincing the corpus to properly balance itself on the seesaw of life. This precise, thorough technique is especially good at treating stress, back pain, tight muscles, headaches, and injuries from fight scenes that involve a lot of wires. After the massage, guests can either give their plum pluckers a soothing hand paraffin treatment, or pamper their sandcastle kickers by immersing them in the reviving waters of an herbal foot soak.
The customized facial package at Dermavita is a skin-rejuvenating treatment completely tailored to each individual face. After an initial personal skin evaluation, the aesthetician will determine the most appropriate combination of facial treatments for each client. The 60-minute facial may include a specialized sequence of microdermabrasion, which polishes away blemishes, fine lines, wrinkles, and tarnish; deep pore cleansing to unpack pores' oversized purses of makeup residue, dead skin, and cookie crumbs; and a vitamin-and-collagen therapy to stimulate the living skin beneath the surface. Other treatment possibilities include an enzyme exfoliation, which removes rough, dry skin and softens the face, as well as a light chemical peel to restore your youthful appearance. A hydrating treatment locks in moisture, keeping skin soft, pliable, and luminous enough to help you read Proust in the dark, as the author intended. No matter which combination your skin requires, the customized facial aims to improve the tone, texture, and clarity of your skin, softening lines, stimulating collagen, and treating skin damage.
