Beauty bars now specialize in everything from blow-outs and keratin treatments to teeth whitening and eyelash extensions, but what about makeup?
Pucker, a new SoHo spot that focuses on makeup applications for every occasion, is taking yet another red carpet treatment and making it mainstream. An ideal place to prepare for a night out, Pucker is also stocked with hair touch-up tools and dressing rooms, so you can walk out ready to go from head to toe. Plus, 2 percent of all sales are split between the Global Fund for Women and the Grace Institute, to provide low-income and unemployed New York women with skills training and job placement.
Julio Sandino, a celebrity makeup artist who opened Pucker with business partner Hiyam McKelvey after honing his skills at top designer runway shows and photo shoots, gives us three summer makeup looks to try at home.
