Since Spring is the perfect time to revisit your beauty routine, DTLA shopping center FIGat7th is holding an event this Thursday where you can try out some of the season's hottest trends, and stock up on products to step up your makeup, skincare, and manicure game.
From 3-9pm on level M2, guests can check-in to receive their "beauty passport," which they can use to visit beauty retailers MAC Cosmetics, L'Occitane, Bath & Body Works, and Yolanda Aguilar Beauty Institute & Spa and receive mini-services or samples. After hitting all the spots, attendees can submit their completed passport for their shot at winning a $500 beauty prize package.
Additionally, the NailSnaps app will have an onsite nail lounge where guests can customize stick-on nail art using images from their own smartphone or the company's cool existing stock. Though a limited number of walk-in appointments will be available (and anyone can receive one complimentary "party nail"), those who want to ensure their spot can reserve a time slot by emailing email@example.com. Don't forget to have pics of your cat/dog/nephew/romantic partner/Kim Kardashian crying face or whatever floats your boat on handy your camera roll.
