Barneys New York holds a place in the heart of fashion enthusiasts worldwide, and now beauty afficianadoes can consider themselves charmed as well. Opening simultaneously this week in New York City and Beverly Hills, A New Foundation is the epicenter of exclusives, luxury products, and an expanded program of makeup application, hair styling, skin treatment services, and more. Did we mention all the products? Doubling down on their XO exclusives program, you'll find products from makeup artists like Troy Surratt and Terry de Gunzburg that can't be found anywhere else. Take a tour of the new spaces, and don't blame us if you get the urge to sneak out for some lunchtime shopping.
Canadian-born Joe Fresh has crossed the border, and recently opened a new flagship store on 5th Avenue in New York. The clothing line is known for reasonable prices and simple style, and their beauty department follows a similar philosophy. "Each season we produce new palettes that reflect international beauty trends," Simone Otis, the beauty consultant for the brand, explains. "These complement the latest Joe Fresh apparel trends." See the beauty bar from the flagship store, and get tips for conquering the season's beauty trends in our gallery.
Ever wondered what it's like to work in a Lush Cosmetics store, or what goes into those amazing in-store treatments provided by employees? Well, wonder no longer. We recently spent an afternoon at Lush, learning the company's skin care secrets and even lending our hands to "help" out at the store.
Thanks to Lush-perts Karly and Michael, we came out with a bunch of incredible tricks and learned how to replicate some of these special miniservices at home. So come behind the apron with us — you'll never look at shower gel the same way again.
