With all of the weddings and benefits and parties (oh my!) we’re going to this fall, we’re starting to feel like we see our makeup artist more than our families. Which is why we’re psyched that this year’s Best of Philly makeup artist, Nives Riddles from Rescue Rittenhouse Spa, is giving us the tools to do our own makeup this fall and beyond: Her new, intimate 15-person Mid-Week Rescue Workshops on Wednesday evenings are for women of all ages — and all makeup habits — and are designed to teach you how to pull off a natural, professional look every day and on big days, too. Best of all, the $50 class fee can be applied toward makeup and brushes — which means that you’ll leave armed with tips and products to use at home, where you can — yay! — finally spend more time with the fam’.

Classes held September 6th, October 4th, November 1st and December 6th at Rescue Rittenhouse Spa Lounge, 255 South 17th Street, 215-772-2766; nivesriddles.com or rescuerittenhousespa.com.
