Struggling under the crippling burden of winter skin? Yeah, we know, life is so so difficult for you gorgeous types. Meanwhile, Alexandria beauty boutique Bellacara (1000 King St., Alexandria) is hosting three days of events so you can properly pamper yourself before the whirlwind of holiday parties really start up.
The festivities kick off with Bellacara's annual holiday party, this Thursday from 6 to 9 p.m. Sift through their cosmetics cache, which includes brands like Alchimie Forever, Bumble and Bumble, and Sue Devitt Studio. Their sliding scale of deals offers the following: 10 percent off a purchase of $75, 15 percent off $150 and 20 percent off $250. And although nothing in life is ever quite free, you can still expect a free gift with purchase.
Friday (1:30-6 p.m.) and Saturday (11 a.m.-3:30 p.m.) mark Bellacara's two-day makeover event. A makeup artist from Becca Cosmetics will be on hand to style you properly for the holidays. More free gifts just might be in store, but appointments are limited, so call 703-299-9652 for a slot.
And kick your blah winter skin to the curb. After all, what has it ever done for you?
