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 to Skin N Beyond, located inside Body & Soul Retreat. Choose between the following options:
• For $99, you get one line of permanent eyeliner on both eyes (a $300 value).
• For $199, you get permanent lip liner (a $500 value).
• For $220, you get a permanent full-eyebrow penciling (a $500 value).
With over 15 years of cosmetic and spa experience, Skin N Beyond owner Suzanne Turi and her expert team beautify visages with permanent makeup treatments, sketched onto skin with needle-applied ink to bestow face-flattering curves. During the 30-minute to one-hour procedure, an aesthetician will carefully trace upper eyelids or the full circumference of lips with a single line of permanent ink, which ensures that faces project effortless beauty at the gym, in the swimming pool, and during power naps in mattress stores. Prior to the eyebrow treatment, an aesthetician designs a pair of custom arches to complement face shape and reflect personal style. New brows are carefully etched onto the forehead, freeing customers from the burden of plucking, penciling, and hiding poorly groomed brows under Groucho Marx glasses. Some minor discomfort and swelling may occur during and after the procedure, and most people find that their permanent makeup needs evening up or enhancing with a touch-up treatment (not included in this Groupon). A detailed Q&A page answers customer questions thoroughly to ensure complete comfort prior to treatment, and photos of Suzanne Turi’s permanent makeup work can be viewed here.
Skin N Beyond
At the age of 18, Skin N Beyond owner and licensed aesthetician Suzanne Turi traded her pageant gowns for a makeup brush, moving to Hollywood to attend the Joe Blasco makeup school. After graduation, she found herself smack in the middle of major happenings, beautifying faces at events such as the Rose Bowl, the Oscars, and Morgan Freeman's fantasy baseball draft. Armed with know-how gleaned from The Dermal Institute in Manhattan and the Galen Institute School of Massage Therapy in Connecticut, she recruited a team of staffers versed and certified in multiple cosmetic disciplines to help her establish Skin N Beyond. That multifaceted expertise shows through today; as clients sip wine and listen to pop hits in the spa's trendy boutique-like lounge, team members execute beautification rituals ranging from manicures and seaweed gel masks to eyelash extensions, microdermabrasion, and medical-grade facial peels.
