Need a new skincare routine? What about a new shade of lipstick?
Arthur and Daughters‘ upcoming makeup events might be just want you need.
Carmina Cristina will have a skincare seminar from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday, May 16 at Arthur and Daughters that will teach participants how to “purify, protect and perfect.”
The local makeup artist said it is important for women to prepare their skin for makeup and have a daily skincare routine that will keep skin healthy.
“Skin affects how your makeup will sit and feel throughout the day,” Cristinia said. “You must prepare your eye skin, lips and overall skin with scrubbing and exfoliation.”
From 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Friday, May 31, Arthur and Daughters will also host Cristina’s Lipstick Launch Party, where the makeup artist will reveal her newest products. Be sure to pick up a Cristina-themed cocktail. Desserts from local shops including Just Cupcakes and All About Brownies will also be available.
Cristina’s Luxury Lipstick line is now available at Arthur and Daughters. Previously, Cristina’s line only included lip gloss.
“There is a need for a lipstick that will stay a little longer than the glosses,” Cristina said. “My lipsticks are creamy, rich and moisturizing.”
There are 13 shades of her lipstick, ranging from soft pink to neutral shades, available to buy at Arthur and Daughters now, but 20 shade will be for sale May 31.
Cristina said she would like to have makeup seminars more often in York, because she wants to keep clients up-to-date about what’s new.
“I see in the future having these events more often even for different holidays,” she said. “Like the clothes at the store, I consider makeup and skincare your accessory as well.”
Shop owner Hilary Arthur only carries costmetics by Cristina because she is a local artist.
“One of the things I love is that all of her stuff is made in the U.S.,” Arthur said. “We only carry local designer products made in the U.S.”
She said the last event will be pure fun.
“When I’m feeling like I need a pick me up the first thing I get is lipstick,” Arthur said.
