Upgrade Your Look

Raise your beauty bar with these 5 simple enhancements.



Oxygen Facial
Method: An oxygen facial uses oxygen under pressure to infuse the skin with an intensely hydrating cocktail of vitamins, antioxidants and amino peptides.  
Result: Your skin’s pores are drenched in hydration and oxygen, creating a plump and supple look that tones the skin and erases fine lines. It’s mighty relaxing, too.  
Locations: Relâche Spa at Gaylord Palms Resort, 80 minutes, $235;  Four Seasons Resort Orlando, 50 minutes, $275. 

Home Tooth-Whitening Kit
Method: Beaming White’s deluxe DIY tooth-whitening set comes with trays that mold to your teeth when heated in water, plus 10-15 applications of teeth-whitening gel. 
Result: Teeth are whitened up to 10 shades, and the re-mineralizing gel (included) promises to seal and strengthen tooth enamel.  
Locations: Order online at beamingwhite.com, $149.95 

Eyelash Extensions
Method: Using a non-irritating adhesive, artists apply synthetic fibers to your natural lashes—it takes about 2 hours and requires bi-weekly maintenance. 
Result: These customized lashes range from a secret that’s yours to keep to a Kim Kardashian smolder everyone will notice.  
Locations: iLashWorks, Winter Park. ilashworks.com. From $250 for a full set; $125 for a half set.

Makeup Makeover
Method: M.A.C.-certified artists deliver a tailored, hands-on tutorial in the store’s private makeup studio using M.A.C. products. Clients also receive 20 percent off in-store purchases for 30 days following the lesson.  
Result: These one-on-one lessons are designed to equip clients with the skills to re-create their new look at home—from everyday natural to all-out glam.  
Locations: M.A.C. Cosmetics, The Mall at Millenia. $100 for a 90-minute, private lesson (includes one free mascara)

Eyebrow Design  
Method: Using a double-stranded cotton thread, unwanted eyebrow hair is plucked away in about five minutes. Threading removes one clean line of hair all at once.
Result: Threaders, some say, are able to control the brow shape more accurately by plucking with thread rather than using wax, giving your brows a more precise and defined contour.  
Locations: Brow Art 23, 7 locations in Central Florida. browart23.com, $12
