My niece is sweet sixteen. I promised her a makeup makeover and facial as a birthday present. I would like to take her into NYC and have a girls day out, but am out of touch with the teen scene. Can anyone tell me where I can take her that won't break the bank?

Thanks in advance

Hey lefthand2004, welcome to the board. I write with my left hand too!!! LOL


You should try Dillard's because they sell MAC makeup and I think she would like that. I know they give free makeovers, but I'm not sure if you have to buy anything to get. You should call fisrt to see if they do before you go and then you will know. I think that would be fun for your niece!!! Let us know how that turns out!!!!

Rita,
Thanks, but I live in the NE and we don't have any Dillards. We do have MAC in the malls, but I was thinking more in terms of a cosmetics house in NY city like Lancome, Elizabeth Arden or Georgette Klinger and that style. I am not sure if there is a special place that caters to teens. I had a facial at Lancome when I was in graduate school and it was great and makeup. But, I was older and didn't have the same skin issues as a 16 year old.

Any other ideas would be greatly appreciated.
