The grand opening of Melange NYC Make-Up Studio (59-23 Grand Ave. Maspeth, NY 11378) was an outstanding event introducing the upscale beauty and fashion boutique to the trendsetting masses. The brainchild of celebrity makeup artists Eve Chen and Ketta Vaughn of Ketta Vaughn Cosmetics, Melange NYC is a full-service make-up studio that also offers beauty seminars, beauty parties, and eye-catching designer jewelry. Whereas consumers once had to buy a bunch of products at a retail counter or have a hookup with a makeup artist to get their face done, Melange NYC offers a quality makeup application experience without the hassle.
According to Ketta and Eve:
We can do any and everything that you want done makeup-wise. From everyday looks, to fashion shows, photo shoots, weddings, birthdays, body painting, face painting, camouflage makeup, glamour... the list is endless. And it's all Ketta Vaughn Cosmetics so it's a beautiful, beautiful thing. You can get really great customized makeup services here [and it's not] cookie-cutter. It's more about the customer, and it's not like a typical retail [or] department [store]. We wanted to extract the retail experience out of makeup, and make it feel like an environment where we can indulge in makeup and beauty, and not feel the pressure of retail.
The launch event was hosted by talented author and Playboy model Tanyka Renee, who received a beautiful makeup application from Melange NYC's gifted staff. Attendees sipped complimentary champagne, Vodkila, and wine, and enjoyed a seemingly endless selection of amazing food. Guests also received complimentary Beauty Bar makeovers, tips on the top makeup trends for Fall, and danced into the night to the sounds of DJ Fugi Slim. VIP gift bags included exclusive Ketta Vaughn Cosmetics products. View the slideshow for pics of the awesome event!
