Salon Spy: The Fashion House

DSC_0042

The Fashion House, a boutique makeup parlour and accessories shop, is a totally fun and unique concept from co-owners Anne Brown and Chelitza Marie. The stylish setting is actually a room within a larger salon/barbershop (The Mensroom) in beautiful downtown Delray Beach, but the vision and decor are completely independent and separate from what’s going on outside. It has a fun, exclusive vibe like you have to be in-the-know to even know it’s there. Their services extend beyond traditional styling as their team provides hair and makeup application services as well as accessory styling.

Anne styled my hair and Chelitza painted me up with Motives Cosmetics. I was not previously familiar with Motives, but this session made me a fan. They also sell Motives if you would like to purchase anything after getting dolled up.

Here is a breakdown of what she used:

These were my favorite Motives products I discovered that day:

Color Perfection Quad

This quad has everything you need to create a completely concealed and contoured complexion. You can use the colors separately to highlight, shade, conceal, etc. or mix them together to create a customized foundation color. Of course, she used the lightest shade on me, but the quad is also available in medium, medium dark, and dark.

Pressed Eyeshadow in Red Earth

Usually, red shadow would not be my first choice, but I was pleasantly surprised! She used a pop of Red Earth, a deep metallic red, on my middle lid and it was actually very flattering. I was really impressed with the quality of the eye shadow overall.

10 Years Younger Spray

This makeup setting spray is legit. It contains aloe vera and other goodies so your skin stays looking fresh while sealing your makeup at the same time. And it smells wonderful! These products are available online in addition to at the boutique.

So, there you have it. The Fashion House was literally like stepping in to an epic walk-in closet and having your besties make you over and help you pick out jewelry for a night out. I loved it!

Added bonus: Anne and Chelitza were totally fun and did not judge me at all for wanting wine at noon.
