As if you need another reason to go and linger inside whichever of the area’s Bluemercury locations is nearest you (I know I’m not the only one who heads there to scoop up a pretty lipgloss or candle during my lunch hour when I need a treat), the beauty boutique has just announced the dates of their spring makeover parties, which are just about the perfect hunting grounds for brides looking for wedding-day makeup inspiration—not to mention, the artist who’ll make it happen.
On each day that one of the four local locations holds a party (we’ve got the full schedule below!), one makeup brand is spotlighted, and you can make a complimentary appointment anywhere from 11-6pm. You’ll be matched with a Bluemercury makeup artist who’s really an expert when it comes to that day’s featured brand, they’ll show you what products and colors are new for spring, and through a makeup application, teach you a few tricks of the trade.
It’s such a great way for brides to test out looks for her wedding-day makeup—and the best part is that if you absolutely love the artist guiding you through it, you can book him or her for your actual wedding day. (Bridal makeup is priced at $100; bridesmaids at $75; and application is done in-store.)
So take a look at the locations, dates, and brands below, round up some of your ‘maids, and start picking out what shade of lipstick you’ll be wearing when you kiss your groom as his wife for the very first time.
