A pretty face can complement a sweet disposition or make a cruel practical joke even more surprising. Knock 'em out with this Groupon.
Choose from Three Options
- $30 for a full-face makeup application ($60 value)
- $65 for a bridal makeup application package for one bride ($130 value)
- $125 for a bridal makeup package for one bride and up to two bridesmaids ($250 value)
Both of the bridal makeup packages include an initial consultation, during which the artist travels to meet with clients to discuss potential makeup looks. During this initial meeting, the artist applies half-face makeup to each client. After agreeing on a desired look, clients schedule a second appointment for full-face bridal and bridesmaid makeup.
Eye Color: More Than Just a Window to Your Soul
The makeup artist will take your eye color into account when deciding which cosmetics to use. Learn more about what makes blues so blue with Groupon’s study of eye color.
Though they are often mesmerizing and regularly the subject of poetry, the pools of color surrounding the pupil are simply a matter of genetics. Eye color was once thought to be determined by what combination of recessive and dominant genes—blue being recessive and brown being dominant—that an embryo received from each parent’s gamete. However, this has proven to be incorrect, and a total of at least 16 genes are now considered to affect the shade of the iris. Complicating matters even more, the scattering of light waves by the iris stroma—its fibers and cells—adds variation and nuance to color, leading to what are considered blue-green and hazel eyes.
Changes to eye color throughout different phases of life have also been documented, the most common being a change from blue to brown before an infant reaches one year of age. The cause for this is attributed to the onset of melanin production, which is directly proportional to the depth of skin, hair, and eye color. Furthermore, eye color can change later in life, such as during pregnancy or adolescence, likely because of hormonal changes in the body.
