Making Dallas Even Better

Galleria Dallas Welcomes BeautyLive This Weekend

This weekend, Galleria Dallas will host BeautyLive, the largest beauty consumer event in the Southwest. The weekend-long event will feature the top trends in beauty, health, and wellness with several expert sessions and in-store events.  Along with the experience, participants will take home free products, tips, and tricks.

“After eight years, I am constantly amazed by the new ideas, techniques and tips that we learn at each of the sessions,” says Holly Quartaro, event host and Galleria Dallas stylist.

Every year, BeautyLive adds new experiences for attendees, and it has continued to grow this year.

“We’ve really expanded the definition of beauty to include wellness, style and more,”Quartaro says.

In addition to the free experiences – such as the braids from TONI&GUY, hand massages, as well as palm and lip readings – there will be platform modeling showing the latest fashions from Galleria Dallas stores.

With several events scheduled for the weekend, we’ve highlighted the can’t-miss moments. (You can find a full schedule here.)

The Daily Detail: Spring’s Must-Have Shape

Allison Mitchell bag-2

The new bronze-toned and somewhat rhombus-shaped clutch by designer Allison Mitchell really caught our eye for Spring. With so many redundant ‘it bags’ out there, this clutch feels authentically cool, unique, and perfect for storing your favorite lipstick for the evening. We can think of a few Dallas events coming up where you’ll be sure to outshine your competition with this little sexy accessory.
