5 Influencers Share Their Beauty Secrets for Spring

By Antonia DePace | February 28, 2018 | People

Take your spring-cleaning game to the next level by giving your beauty regimen an overhaul. Let these five influencers help you get lush lashes, pillowy lips and positively glowing skin.


Hair Stylist

Edmondo Blando’s Salon Vanity has been tending to Philly’s most high-profile locks, from suburban socialites to TV news personalities, since 2005. His favorite look for 2018? Bangs, complemented by wavy, lived-in tresses. According to Blando, there is a style of bangs for every face shape. He uses L’Oreal’s Next Day texture spray for styling. 1701 Walnut St., 215.925.2211,

Eyelash Extensions

Make mascara a thing of the past at Deneen Marcel Lashes. Known for her custom eyelash extensions (she’s also a whiz at brow shaping), Marcel recommends the new Hybrid Volume treatment. Like the name suggests, a mixture of long and short lashes are applied to the real thing to give clients a soft, textured look that’s neither too subtle or dramatic—a perfect option for firsttimers. 2007 Chestnut St., 267.386.6681,

Makeup Artist

Visit Blue A Hair Studio for more than just on-trend hairstyles. From the second-floor beauty counter, makeup artist Andrea Mastromarco works wonders with the latest cosmetic lines. Mastromarco says that learning proper color placement is key to a youthful visage, as applying “too much makeup can make your features look collapsed.” 2550 Huntingdon Pike, Huntingdon Valley, 215.947.2963,


Himalayan salt rooms, dry saunas and even a candy bar are only a few of the amenities that keep spagoers coming back to Le Reve. But don’t forget about the indulgent skincare services. Owner Sophia Brodsky recommends the Organic Hungarian Facial, which uses natural antioxidantrich products imported from Hungary and includes a rejuvenating massage. 255 S. 17th St., 215.701.6272,


Harvard alum Dr. Louis Bucky helps clients improve their appearance with a variety of procedures like natural breast-lifts, tummy tucks and brow-lifts. But injectables remain one of his top treatments. For a perfect pout, Dr. Bucky suggests new fillers like Vollure to plump lips and fill fine lines associated with aging. 1800 Rittenhouse Square, 215.525.3823,
