Not only has Erik Berntsen apprenticed with makeup moguls such as Chanel, Smashbox Cosmetics, and MAC Cosmetics, he has also sojourned to L.A. to train in the art of camera makeup, runway makeup, and permanent cosmetics. Berntsen is also a member of Society of Permanent Cosmetic Professionals and is also an advanced certified permanent cosmetics professional (CPCP). Using indelible colored pigments on the lids, he is able to make lashes appear fuller or cause eye color to stand out. When artfully applied to the brows, these hypoallergenic hues can also enhance the symmetry of the face, and they can even be applied using ultra-fine, individual hair strokes for a shockingly natural look. The pigments—which will not smudge and can last for years—can also be used to infuse color into the lips, making them appear fuller and more symmetrical or to add a beauty mark to mask a problem area or cover an already-existing beauty mark that has let itself go.
Tyler English knows the look of frustration. In his eight years as a fitness professional in Connecticut, he has helped thousands of health-seekers who feel bored or fatigued by solo workouts at big health clubs find a better path.

English, a professional natural bodybuilder and author, leads metabolic-conditioning workouts, which boost the body?s anaerobic and aerobic capacity with interval-based cardio. He also folds in a series of strength sessions that incorporate moves with dumbbells, resistance bands, kettlebells, medicine balls, and medicine balls encased in concrete. Tyler also counts on The Diet Doc's weight-loss program through nutritional guidance.

Busy fashionistas may schedule private shopping appointments outside of regular business hours to receive one-on-one service. Closet-cleaning house calls summon Vice Versa Boutique's organizers to tidy up disheveled wardrobes and provide suggestions on future purchases before floating out the window with a vintage umbrella.
