When improperly applied, makeup can have a harsh and unsettling effect on its onlookers, much like Richard Nixon's portrayal of Hamlet. Go easy on the eyes with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of makeup, skincare, and hair products at Aptos Beauty Boutique.
Aptos Beauty Boutique's staff of well-informed makeup mavens guides customers through shelves stuffed with beauty products from brands such as Murad, Smashbox, and OPI. Upon request, staff members can set skin up on a date with a compatible foundation hue discovered through a complimentary color-matching service, or help customers to embellish their eyelids with vitamin-E-enriched Smashbox eye shadow and golden illuminations peeled from medieval cosmetology manuscripts ($16). Alternatively, scrub down with milk, lavender, or verbena L'Occitane bar soaps ($10) or tint fingernails and toenails with a cornucopia of OPI nail-polish shades ($9). Aptos Beauty Boutique also cossets head foliage with hairstyling products such as Enjoy strong-holding gel, which can add volume and durability to Statue of Liberty–shaped beehives ($18).
