City Pulse

By Ashley Goldsmith

The change of seasons brings on many new and exciting opportunities. There’s the seasons fresh fruits and veggies, a new wardrobe and of course a new beauty look. This weekend we bring you two summer beauty filled events that will have you looking your very best for the warm weather months. (Whenever spring or summer decide to show up of course!)

This Friday and Saturday, join celebrity Makeup Artist Michael Marcus at Takashimaya for a personal consultation and recommendation of products specific to your individual needs. After your consultation, you’ll be paired up with one of Marcus’ makeup artists to walk you through each suggested product and offer application tips as well. There is no appointment fee but there is a minimum purchase of 3 products. Though I’m sure you won’t be able to resist the summer inspired hues and botanical based skin care products.

What: A Personal Beauty Consultation with celebrity Makeup Artist Michael Marcus
Where: Takashimaya, 693 Fifth Ave., (212) 350-0100 for appointments
When: Friday, June 5th 11am-5pm & Saturday, June 6th 11am-4pm

If you’re always trying to recreate the makeup you’ve seen on the runways but can’t get the right products since most are custom made for the shows, head to Sephora this month. The beauty mecca has teamed up with Dior to bring you the products used and techniques applied at their Spring 09 runway show. Dior experts will be on hand to help you achieve sexy summer eyes with their award-winning mascaras like Diorshow, a cult favorite, as well as shadows from the new 5-Colour Design Eyeshadow Palette. There’s no product purchase or appointment necessary so head over for some summer beauty inspiration.

What: Summer Beauty with Dior
Where: Sephora 5th Avenue, 597 5th Avenue
When: Now through Wednesday, July 1st 12pm-7pm
