City Pulse

By Ashley Goldsmith

They say that the most beautiful women in the world reside in New York City and well who am I to argue? I’m sure most of it is due to our innate confidence but we can’t turn a blind eye to the salons, spas and beauty events on every corner and at our disposal 24/7. So in celebration of our beauty, here’s a few events sure to keep you as fabulous as ever.

Our favorite natural beauty brand is offering up a serious deal for you the rest of July. Now through July 30th, The Aveda Institute New York is offering complimentary mini-facials chock full of Aveda’s botanically-derived skincare. All treatments last 30 minutes, are customized to your specific skincare needs and are performed by senior Aveda Institute students under the guidance of experienced instructors. After each treatment, students will recommend a regimen of Aveda products best suited for your skin type and if you purchase $50 in Aveda products, you’ll receive $20 off of any Institute service. Be sure to schedule your appointment right away, as space is limited.

The Aveda Institute New York, 233 Spring Street between 6th Avenue and Varick, Appointments and information: 212.807.1492, ext. 4

Ideal for makeup junkies (like myself) or anyone looking to take their skills to the next level, guest artist Michael Devellis, the editor of On Makeup and a makeup authority, will host a class dedicated to make up experts and make up artists. Head over to Sephora 5th Avenue for the ultimate beauty classroom. Learn to perfect techniques and the latest trends for fall with Korres’ all natural beauty products. This event is free and gifts will be provided.

Korres Makeup Experts Masterclass, Thursday August 6th, Sephora 5th Avenue, 12noon-2pm RSVP to: 212.226.5444
