Birthday Party Ideas in New York; Makeup Parties at MESS Makeup

Birthday parties shouldn’t stop being fun just because you’ve grown up: “Makeup parties” are becoming the hottest new party theme for chic city women and birthday girls in NYC.

New York, NY, October 13, 2005 --( We all feel the pressure building as our birthday draws near: How will I celebrate this time? Many women have given up on birthday celebrations simply because they don’t like their choices. Hitting the town for dinner and drinks lacks the level of uniqueness and excitement the occasion deserves, and hosting parties at your own house is a lot of work, pressure and stress – not exactly how one wants to spend a birthday. Having heard the sentiment “There’s got to be a better party idea for grown women” expressed more than once, the staff of New York City’s makeup artist headquarters and purveyor of high-end mineral cosmetics, MESS Makeup, has come up with a solution to the birthday party idea wasteland: makeup parties.

MESS helps women throw makeup parties at their spacious studio and store, located in the heart of New York City, or in the women’s homes. MESS Makeup’s celebrity makeup artists, stylists and photographers make party guests feel pampered, relaxed, and most of all, gorgeous. The result is a truly unique evening of fun and glamour for any sized group that not only guarantees a good time for one night; the makeup applications that guests receive from professional makeup artists at the top of their industry may provide insight into looking more beautiful in the future – for example, on their own birthdays.

Birthday party packages include the set up, the makeup, and the clean up. Along with makeup applications for the celebrant and all of her guests, MESS offers the options of gift bags, hair styling and photography during makeup parties: Many women want a group photo of all their closest friends looking their best, and individual shots and prints are an option as well. Hosts are welcome to bring refreshments to the MESS facility or arrange for catering. MESS aims to make throwing birthday parties easy for even the busiest woman, whose only responsibilities are to tell MESS’s party planner how many guests to expect and to pick the components they want to incorporate from an a la carte menu.

Of course, they’re not just for birthdays; makeup parties are also a cool and creative idea for women seeking a new spin on girls-night-out, for bachelorette parties, and for parents trying to plan a special day for their daughter’s Sweet Sixteen, Bat Mitzvah or prom. MESS encourages those who seek an exciting new party theme to make an appointment to discuss their goals with a MESS party planner and tour the new MESS space.
