The Soiree 2.0 website has arrived!

THE MOOD BOARD

 

The new Soiree Beauty Concierge website has officially launched and we are IN LOVE!

Last year, we rebranded and changed our company name. After sitting with our previous Squarespace template, we realized it just didn't fit the look or layout that we were going for.

After some soul searching, we found exactly what we were looking for in the "Banquet" template by GOLIVE HQ. These girls know what they are doing when it comes to modern + feminine design!

With the help of our fabulous graphic designer, Nichole Rocero of Nic Roc Designs, we were able to create our dream website!

Cheers to these very talented female entrepreneurs and great design work!

The Finishing Touches

In addition to relaxing with a mobile massage, Newport Beach residents may find themselves in need of finishing touches—almost weekly amid the holidays and bustling soiree season. This is the perfect time to forego the salon visits and bring the primping to you. “This way, clients are in the comfort of their own space, and [getting ready] is more time-efficient,” explains Brandi McMillan, owner of Soirée Beauty Concierge, which serves all of Southern California. For groups like bridal parties, it provides a more intimate and relaxed setting where friends can mingle while they receive a makeover.

Offering men’s grooming, application of cosmetics and hairstyling, Soirée Beauty Concierge has seen a boost in mobile beautifying services with the growing popularity of boudoir shots and social media. “Bridal parties are still our biggest business,” McMillan says. Her technicians are trained in the most current trends, so no client request is unmet. The beauty concierge will bring the props to get you primped; clients should just be clean-faced, shampooed and towel-dried upon arrival.

Color Science Mineral Powder Brush Matte SPF 50

This may be one of the greatest cosmetic inventions of this century!

So, we are suppose to reapply SPF to our face every few hours. But, this is not convenient if you wear a liquid foundation. Now, each time you touch up your powder, you'll be adding an extra dose of SPF 50. 

Note: We DO recommend the product to everyone. However, we DO NOT recommend wearing this product on your wedding day or special event, if you are concerned about flashback aka "the pale white look" in photos, that mineral powders and SPF are known to cause.

L'Oreal Paris Sublime Bronze Pro Perfect Airbrush 

If you are concerned about tan lines showing or just need a little bit of color, this product is easy to use and super affordable. 

If you your wedding or special event is coming up, we suggest testing it out a few times and getting the hang of it beforehand. If you are wearing light colors, make sure to shower at least 1-2 times before beforehand, to avoid any color transfer.

Kenra Extra Volume Mousse #17

Mousse isn't just for curly hair anymore. We recommend a small amount of volumizing mousse to almost everyone, if you are concerned about frizz or having your curls hold up in the humidity. 

If you are having a Blow Dry service done before your event, suggest to your Stylist that you'd like them to add a little mousse, to give you some extra hold and volume.

Holiday cocktails + more

We were recently invited to help style on a shoot for our friend and graphic designer, Nicole Rocero, of Nic Roc Designs, for her new business venture. THE ROC SHOP is a line of modern party goods, including coasters, napkins, laser cut stir sticks, cake toppers, and foil stamped greeting cards.
