I’ve been in NYC enough to know the best places to get your nails done (Soho Nails has a $7 first time manicure + massage), hair done (Blo Blow Dry Bar is the best for blowouts) and almond milk latte (Kaffe 1668 in Tribeca changed my life). When I heard about Rouge NY, created by Stephanie March of SVU and her makeup artist, I knew I had to stop in. Blow dry bars have taken over the country, giving women all around the opportunity to run in for a blowout, whether it’s for a wedding or just a fix up, and look brand new in less than an hour. Rouge is the first solely makeup bar in the city, where you pay a set price (there are 3 different makeup options) and go in for a major beauty update. This little boutique inspired stop in Soho is hidden on the street, and you’d have no idea what lies inside unless you walk in. A chic and vintage inspired studio, with comfy white chairs (yes, the ones in the movies) and lipstick plastered across the walls. I want my bedroom to look like Rouge.
Angelina and I went in on a busy Sunday morning before a day of shows (and brunch) where we fell in love with this boutique studio. I chatted with my incredibly inspiring makeup artist, who was the sweetest thing EVER, and 45 minutes later we were on our way to an afternoon show looking like we just walked out of Vogue. Prices aren’t bad either: $50 and you’ll get a basic revamp, which is really all one needs. Rouge is booking up fast, so don’t wait to get an appointment there. You won’t regret it.
