Pamper yourself at these upcoming health and beauty events in NYC
Have the dog days of summer got you feeling, um, a little less than glamorous? No need to fret. We found a handful of awesome—and free—beauty and fitness events for some much needed pampering.
Get expert makeup tips at Bergdorfs
Bergdorf Goodman and Guerlain are teaming up to host the beauty blowout tonight (and later in the month). Celebrate the new KissKiss lipstick line while picking up need-to-know tips from industry insiders. Like everything else at Bergdorfs, the 28 silky shades of lipstick lean towards the expensive side ($35, to be exact). But staying smudge-free after two cocktails is priceless. 745 Fifth Ave at 58th St, Beauty Level (212-872-2734), Wed Aug 13, 27 5:30–7pm.
Get a free manicure at Michael Kors
Starting tomorrow and every Thursday for the rest of the month, you can drop by Michael Kors's Madison Avenue store for a complimentary manicure. The just-launched line of polishes (pictured above) is tailored to three of the designer's signature looks—sporty, sexy and glam. Choose from 18 nail lacquers in summery shades like "Fantasy," a rich blue, and "Seduction," a deep gray. 667 Madison Ave between 60th and 61st Sts. (212-980-1550). Aug 14, 21, 28, 10am-6pm
