Whereas peacocks are blessed with a natural physical radiance that makes people want to take photos with them at mall photo booths, human beings require professional color applications. Today's Groupon gets you what Mother Nature left out: for $35, you get a 30-minute eco-makeup application and instruction (a $75 value) at The Still Point in Takoma Park.
The makeup artists at the organic beauty boutique apply 100% nontoxic beauty products, and during the half-hour makeup application, only the likes of RMS Beauty, Julie Hewett, Vapour, and other natural brands will grace your face. The Still Point's trained appliers will work with you to create a customized look for any special event or reality-show audition. Opt for a dramatic dusting of color to the cheeks to appear appropriately rosy, or request expertly lined eyes to enhance a striking facial feature, your earlobes. The application also includes detailed instructions on how to replicate the look in front of a mirror at home or in an amusement park.
The prettifying will take place in The Still Point's renovated and 100% wind-powered Federal-style house, which is complete with a soothing white-washed décor and stress-reducing on-site parking lot. Appointments are required, so call ahead to book your beautifying session.
The Washington Post featured The Still Point, and Washington City Paper named it "Best Spa" in 2009. Although customers who have experienced the eco-makeup are too busy admiring themselves in the mirror to post online reviews, Yelpers give other services at The Still Point four stars:
