Photos: Yaletown's BeautyMark gears up for holiday 2012
What does the beauty buff in your life secretly want this holiday season? If you’re not sure, you may want to stop by Vancouver’s BeautyMark (1268 Pacific Boulevard) for some expert advice from co-owners Tayler Rogers and Kendra Lovick and their knowledgeable staff. This locally owned beauty emporium is a makeup-lover’s dream, with wall-to-wall shelves of quality skincare, makeup, nail, and hair products for men and women.
This holiday season, Rogers and Lovick have decked the halls of BeautyMark with a fun “Neon Noel” theme, and brought in heaps of gift-worthy goodies to satisfy even the prettiest Christmas grinch. From the limited edition Fresh and Butter London gift sets, to full lines of popular skincare labels such as Dermalogica and Tata Harper, to customer favourites like Rosebud Salve lip balm and individually packed face masks ideal for stocking-stuffers, winter beauty is in full swing at BeautyMark. When you’re finished your holiday shopping, treat yourself by heading upstairs, where Varnish Nail Lounge has set up shop, providing express manicures for $20 and mani-pedis for $45 to $52.
