Makeup artists can help you put your best face forward.
Looking for a new look? Several Delaware establishments offer makeup lessons, makeover appointments and special occasion makeup.
Ulta in Concord Mall (4803 Concord Pike, Wilmington, 479-9917) offers a soup-to-nuts makeup application for about $30. (Prices are subject to change, so call first.) In the retail area, consultants will help you match colors and demonstrate how to apply products. Don’t expect a full, free makeover. You can, however, get more personalized attention when artists for the various lines visit the store.
Houppette (3842 Kennett Pike, Greenville, 421-9036) occasionally features guest makeup artists who represent its most popular lines, including Laura Mercier, Paula Dorf and Dauphin. Make an appointment for a complimentary consultation with the visiting artist. The boutique has four makeup artists who will apply the latest colors. For $60, the staff will apply makeup for a special occasion.
“I do your makeup so you can go out and look fabulous,” says artist Sarah-Louise DiIenno, who, with owner Cristi Miller, is trained in Laura Mercier and Paula Dorf makeup application. Schedule a makeup lesson for $65.
Ooh la la—the Makeup Studio in Trolley Square (1700 N. Scott St., Wilmington, 622-9425), which features owner Tonia Marisa’s own brand, offers in-studio makeup applications from $55 to $60, and bridal makeup application for $85. The shop specializes in bridal parties—Marisa has traveled as far as Key West to make brides beautiful—and makeup for photo shoots.
Boscov’s (Concord Mall, Wilmington, 478-6800) offers free makeup consultations at the counters of its many cosmetic lines. You can schedule an appointment or walk up to the counter. —Pam George
