Cluttered makeup drawers and vanities: it’s a common scenario for many women. That’s why Nancy Dawson, owner of BRIDEface Cincinnati, is on a mission to simplify beauty. “Women really want to look like the best version of themselves,” she says, and she wants to help them get there.

So, mark your calendar for March 18 as Dawson hosts the “Just for Fun: Makeup Palette” event at The Creative Hookup in Montgomery. Guests will get a personalized beauty consultation to discover the styles and shades that best suit them. From there, they can customize their own palette to ensure that they always have the colors they need – and get ride of the ones they don’t.

“When I teach makeup classes, I always ask the clients to bring in their makeup bags. Time and time again, I see pre-made palettes that are only being utilized about 15%. I see clutter,” Dawson says. “The palettes we sell enable clients to curate the shades they actually use into one sleek collection, and get rid of all that extra stuff. It’s so much better when you have the ability to fully customize your palette.” Ladies who don’t so much need a full vanity makeover but who instead want a few fresh spring looks will also have the option of purchasing individual shadows.

This simplified approach to beauty has long-inspired Dawson’s career in cosmetics. She explains, “I am more about enhancing a woman’s natural beauty and bringing out her very best, than transforming them into another person or giving them an overly artificial look.”

Dawson is the owner of on-the-go bridal beauty company, BRIDEface, which is in its 11th year of serving Cincinnati brides. “The honor of being chosen by someone on the most photographed day of her life and making her feel like a celebrity for the day is priceless.”

But the beauty love isn’t just for brides. She also created her own line of beauty products called FACEing. Dawson and her team love to help anyone find the best version of themselves with her one-on-one and group makeup classes.

Dawson is looking forward to sharing fresh makeup trends for spring at the Just for Fun event. One of her favorite tricks? “Color on the lips! Our FACEing collection features bright pops on the lips and defined nudes on the eyes. So modern and very flattering!”

“I can’t even…” That’s what you’ll be saying when you see the beauty gurus work their magic at the upcoming “Eye Can’t Even” event.

Amanda Arias, owner of Bella Rey Salon in Oakley, is hosting this Happy Hour and Beauty Bar to feature experts from her salon, Nancy Dawson of BRIDEface, and a select line of skincare.

“Clients are always looking for new ways that focus on their faces, specially anti-aging skincare and makeup,” Arias explains. “Bella Rey Salon works closely with Nancy Dawson of BRIDEface – she’s the best in town.”

Dawson will be at the event giving complimentary brow lessons to attendees. “Eyebrows are definitely becoming a “thing” that people are concentrating on more,” Arias says. “Nancy personally showed me what I was doing wrong and how to do them correctly and what tools to use. Ever since then, I actually have people compliment my brows. It’s crazy!”

FACEing, the brand of makeup Dawson developed and launched, will be available to purchase, including brow tools used in Dawson’s lessons.

Arias will also feature the Rodan + Fields skin care line at her event. “I’ve dealt with troubled skin my entire life,” she explains. “My friend suggested a product six months ago that changed my life. I bought it and never looked back.”

In fact, she says, it improved her skin so dramatically in three months that she decided to go through the training and become and Rodan + Fields consultant herself. “It has literally been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made and now I am fortunate enough to be able to offer these products to my clients as well,” she says. “Everyone is loving their products and their immediate results.”

Arias will have the entire Rodan + Fields line available for purchase at the event. In addition, there will be several giveaways and raffles, including sample and full sized products.

Arias says she recently hosted a similar event, and it was such a success that they decided to have another. “One of the products that I love is the multifunction eye cream. It literally got rid of my crows feet and dark under eye circles in a matter of weeks,” she says. “So, we teamed up with Nancy to really out the emphasis on eyes this month!”

The free event is on Friday March 13, from 6-8 p.m. and includes light food and beverages. To learn more, visit Bella Rey Salon on Facebook for the event link and more information including before and after pictures.
