Cosmetics Overhaul

Mobile Make Up For Ever

I’ve always been a bit averse to department store makeovers because, one, I can never replicate the look at home, and, two, I’m not keen on the hard sell that can accompany them. (“No thanks, I really don’t need that peacock-blue eye shadow and an entirely new skincare regimen …”) Fortunately, Make Up For Ever has transformed this experience via its Make Up Bag Remix concept. Starting February 23, the Mobile Make Up School is rolling into NorthPark Center for three days of individual tutorials. Bring your makeup bag — or the contents of your bathroom drawer — and one of 16 pros will teach you how to properly apply what you already own during a 30-minute session; whenever possible, he or she will even revamp products that are the wrong shade or texture. (Granted, if that tangerine lipstick is beyond salvage, expect a more appropriate product recommendation.) You’ll walk away with a new makeup bag, a custom face chart, a professionally taken “after” photo — and the know-how to be your very own Way Bandy. Appointments
