Let’s suppose that you’ve taken our advice and planned a day or two (or three) around a trip to the South Coast Plaza. You’ve spent all day shopping and exploring everything there is to see at this shopper’s paradise and have plans for a special evening (I suggest taking in a show at the OC Performing Arts Center or having a romantic meal at Charlie Palmer). You just purchased a killer outfit and want to have a flawless and dramatically made up face to complete your look. Take this insiders tip and grab a seat at the Lash Bar at Shu Uemura. You’ll receive some one on one time with a highly trained make up artist who will assist you in the art of false eyelash application and throw in a perfectly made up face to boot!
Shu Uemura is a we heart this favorite for high end make up (the colors!) and skin care (we’ll have a closer look in the future), but it’s their stunning collection of false eyelashes that has us coming back for more. Nothing adds more drama and intrigue that a great set of lashes and Shu Uemura is the best of the best. Choose from the Tokyo Lash Bar 2009 collection for a spectacular fantastical look (I’m gaga for the lavender bloom lashes) or stick to a more basic style (I’m partial to the black focal lashes) – either way a Shu Uemura pro can help apply the lashes and give you detailed instructions for applications at home. An appointment for eyelash application and a make over at the SCP Shu Uemura lash bar will have you looking your absolute best and ready for night on the town in the OC!
