Ever since she was a little girl, Frances Reyes loved watching her mother apply her makeup and would marvel at the skill her mother displayed while blending various eye shadow colors. When she got older, she began doing her friends' makeup for special occasions, such as dances and Taco Tuesdays in the lunchroom, and eventually, Frances decided to go to beauty school.
Frances?now works at Royale Artistry, where she beautifies everyone from models to musicians to brides. Regardless of whom she is working with, Frances loves to accent their best features. She starts with top-notch products from Unite, Kenra, and Motives. Frances then meticulously applies makeup, snips stylish haircuts, and crafts vibrant,?face-framing highlights.
The Bridal Soiree, hosted by Allie & Belle Event Resources, is a one-day expo that helps brides plan their weddings by introducing them to wedding experts and products. Walking models allow up-close views of bridal gowns, and interactive beauty bars feature hair stylists and makeup artists glamming women up for a quick turn in the onsite photo booth. Brides can also taste cake, appetizers, and mimosas, as well as listen to live bands playing their best wedding soundtracks or covers of the Jaws theme song. Those who don't even know where to begin the planning process can attend discussion sessions with event planners, which take place twice during the day.
Bristles brush against the skin, agitating dead cells and tickling the cheeks while a vacuum simultaneously sucks up the freed flakes. After the exfoliation, a customized paraben-free solution is applied to your skin. This is the DermaSweep system, which aesthetician Victoria Spitters uses to treat fine lines, hyperpigmentation, acne scars, and dehydration, all while being gentle to sensitive skin. In addition to rejuvenating faces, Victoria also waxes away unwanted hair.
