Who doesn’t love to be pampered and made beautiful at a spa? Krystal Smith, makeup artist and brow expert, knows this and she recently opened the Luxe Beauty Brow and Spa in Long Island, New York.
“I wanted to open a spa because I wanted to provide services that improve health, beauty, and relaxation,” says Smith.
Luxe Beauty Brow and Spa offers beauty, makeup, nail and body treatments; and features the hottest trends in brows including microblading, ombre brows; makeup application, facials, CBD nails, and vajacials (treats in-grown hairs, removes dead skin cells and smooths bumps around the bikini line). “We will make Luxe Beauty Brow & Spa stand out by providing exceptional customer service, building strong relationships with our clients, being transparent with our clients and creating/customizing an unforgettable experience to every client we touch,” says Smith about her new business.
Luxe Beauty Brow and Spa ranges in price from $20 to $400 for an Everyday Slay to VIP/White Carpet Slay services.
Smith, who has been a makeup artist for almost 20 years and worked for MAC Cosmetics for three years as a retail manager and six years as a lead makeup expert, always wanted to venture into business for herself. She and her husband invested in the spa.
“The most important piece of business advice I have received thus far is to fuel my vision with perseverance and embrace my expertise. Sometimes things get challenging, but you have to commit yourself to move forward, regardless of the circumstances at the moment,” she says.
Now that the spa has opened, Smith is ready to make her mark. She says, “Our goals for this year are realistic as this is a new business: to build a strong clientele, stand out from our competitors and build a strong social media presence as this will help drive our business.”
