Social Beauty Co.

We used to think that waking up bright-eyed was akin to making out in a fountain: a lovely idea, but something reserved for movie stars.

Then we paid a little visit to The Social Beauty Co.

This one-stop-to-get-gorgeous shop is the brainchild of brow pro Julia Solorzano and makeup expert Nicole Tott-Berger, who offer a comprehensive range of services, from airbrush tanning to red-carpet-worthy makeup applications, in an old-school Hollywood setting.

While we certainly appreciate the hang-with-your-girlfriends-and-sip-bubbly sentiment, we don?t usually have hours to sit in a salon. So instead, we?ve been hitting up SBC for their quick beauty fixes.

In a hurry--as always--we popped in for a 30-minute eye-defining brow and lash combo treatment ($40). After tenderly applying tint to our lashes, Solorzano deftly threaded our brows. We woke up the next morning with eyes as bright as Zooey Deschanel?s and haven?t touched a mascara wand in more than a week.

Other quickie treatments include a mini eye facial ($25), fast makeup application ($35) and 30-second ?zit zap? ($6). Thankfully, you can book appointments online, so you don?t have to whisper that last request into the phone at your office.
