Even beauty editors and natural makeup artists know that skin-care alone isn’t the recipe for great skin. For that, you also need great food.
That’s the raison d’etre of tomorrow evening’s Beauty Supper Club at Brooklyn raw-food hotspot, Sun in Bloom, which should draw beauty-lovers of all stripes.
It’s co-hosted by a clique of the cosmetically informed—Beauty Is Wellness blogger and coach Jolene Hart, natural makeup artist Rebecca Casciano, and natural recipe writer and food brainiac Sara Jane Mercer.
While there may be use of the words “acne” and “stratum corneum” at the table, the evening has a decidedly sexy, get-your-glow-on bent. Sun in Bloom chef Aimee Follette’s three-course, prix fixe menu ($45) is comprised of “sexy, sweet, and spicy foods” that are loaded with beauty benefits.
During the dinner, the hosts will dispense tips and highlight the beauty-food selections. A quick glance at the menu reveals an antioxidant-packed pomegranate juice blend, skin-smoothing wakame in the Hearty Balancing Macro Platter entrée, and blood-sugar balancing cinnamon in the Chocolate Mayan Spiced Fudge Cake dessert.
And unlike what you’ll find on OpenTable for tomorrow night, this is probably the only restaurant reservation in town that’ll give your skin, hair, and nails a boost. —Melisse Gelula
