Evening of Beauty

Spend an evening getting pampered at Macy’s: Carl Ray will walk attendees through the latest in spring beauty trends, the Skin Beauty Bar will perform skincare consultations and massages, and guests will sip on healthy Jrink Juicery beverages while getting complementary manicures. Additionally, the Wild Rose Soap Company will be in store to demonstrate how to make your own salt scrubs and bath teas, so the relaxation can continue from the comfort of your own tub.
