The ladies at Center City’s About Face Skin Care are in the business of helping people make deep and lasting improvements in their skin—so suffice it to say that they meet a lot of brides-to-be who come to them with a list of things they want to tackle before they walk down the aisle.

This scenario has played out so often over the years, in fact, that they recently decided to take everything they’ve learned from their bridal clients, and put together a package that caters specifically to the needs of this particular clientele. They’ve heard the same needs echoed time and time again—and now they’ve got a way to knock ’em out in one fell swoop: The Get-Wedding-Ready Bundle.

Here’s what you get:

Until now, Philly-born startup LashBee—the brainchild of Wharton graduates Anjali Bhatia and Erin Soletski—had been offering their eyelash-extension and -treatment services inside other Philly salons and spas, such as About Face Skincare.

8 Sweat-Proof Makeup Products for Your Summer Wedding

Summer Bride Beauty Makeup

In case the weather the past two weeks—and your gross-feeling, refusing-to-stay-put makeup—has got you worrying about your upcoming wedding (and pre-wedding parties) still on this summer’s calendar, we don’t blame you. Humidity like this is unkind to hair and faces alike, and no one wants their wedding photos to scream I am drowning in my own sweat when they look back on their day.

Now, if you’ve hired a reputable professional makeup artist, you can rest assured that he or she has an armory of gross weather-specific products that should keep you covered on your high-temp wedding day. But if you’re doing your own makeup—and for all those events leading up to it (the mid-day outdoor bridal shower, shore bachelorette party, etc.), you’re going to want to have a few products on hand to combat the elements in which you are celebrating.

We’ve been fans of getting our glow on at The Bronzed Bee ever since it opened up about two and a half years ago, and were secretly and selfishly thrilled when they recently scooched the location of the airbrush tanning, lashing and waxing boutique just a bit closer to our PW offices (you can now find them in bigger digs at 2020 Locust Street).

But in case you have not yet checked out their new shop, we’ve got the perfect opportunity, as they’re having a little shindig tomorrow evening.

Before my makeup trial for my wedding, I warned my makeup artist that she was more than likely going to have a helluva time with my under-eye area: overlapping deadlines and an extra over-scheduled life during wedding planning had meant more stress and less sleep for quite a while by then, and I felt it courteous to warn her she should probably have her very favorite and most effective concealers, etc., on hand.

She assured me that she got me, and indeed, on my wedding day, I don’t think my guests could (hopefully!) tell by looking at me that I had not sat down and relaxed for longer than five minutes in approximately three months.

I had my own arsenal during that time, though, of de-puffing rollers and eye gels and Touche Eclat and all that jazz—and so it is you, brides, who I thought of when I received word of an event happening at the Rittenhouse Spa & Club next week. Their Summer Skin + Style Event sounds like a lovely night out for you and your girls—and it just so happens to focus on your tired peepers.
