I just tried one of Blushington‘s new Weekday Specials and I was so impressed I wanted to share. For those of you who aren’t yet familiar with Blushington, it’s a makeup and beauty lounge in West Hollywood frequented by L.A.’s chicest locals, wedding parties and celebs like Emma Roberts. There, you can get professional makeup applications and beauty maintenance services while drinking champagne and catching up on chick flicks. (Also, the Drybar is next door, which is very convenient should you want to top off your beauty service with a blowout.)
The new Blushington Weekday Specials are a great way to keep up appearances on the go at affordable prices. (Brow tinting for less than $12?!? Count me in!) On the menu:
- Tinting Tuesdays (25% off brow and lash tinting services)
- Waxing Wednesdays (25% off brow, lip and chin waxing)
- Eyes on the Prize Thursdays (a free faux lash application, regularly $15, with any signature Full-Face application)
As a makeup enthusiast, I of course picked Eyes on the Prize Thursdays. The makeup artist suggested I choose a look from their book of signature makeup looks, or feel free to mix and match. Within 30 minutes, I had a glam combo of their Simply Glowing and Cutting Edge looks, featuring beautiful bronzed skin and a cobalt blue cat eye created with products from the likes of Jouer and Stila.
Perhaps the only downside to this entire experience was that I had no fancy red carpet to walk afterward, but I did use it as an excuse to try a new restaurant! In the future, I definitely recommend Blushington for a reasonably priced expert makeup application should you have a special event to attend in L.A. — or just want to feel extra special for the day.
Blushington is located at 8591 Sunset Blvd. in West Hollywood, Calif. To make an appointment, call 310.652.5874.
