With Art Basel in Miami Beach set to begin its cornucopia of art fairs, fêtes, and exclusive soirées, you’ll need to look the part in order to paint the town red. Here are six ways to look Art Basel-ready from head to toe.
At this renowned New York transplant, your hands are a blank canvas for talented artists who will transform your nails into a masterpiece. Whether you want to keep it classic with solids or get abstract with prints, the possibilities are endless at Vanity Projects. They'll be providing on-call appointments to all of South Beach (from First to 50th streets) for the week of Art Basel, and will be hosting a tropical manicure pop-up at The Thompson (December 2-6). By appointment only. 7338 NW Miami Ct. #2, Miami, 786-292-3442
Getting eyelash extensions can either be a traumatic or an eye-opening experience depending on where you go. For the latter and ultimate, “I woke up like this” look, Miallure has you covered with natural-looking, voluminous lashes that will have everyone looking at you. Miami socialites swear by Maria Ermeeva’s magic touch and ability to frame your face to accentuate your best features. (Disclaimer: you might become addicted). By appointment only. 2700 N. Miami Ave., Miami, 786-620-6666
Nobody has time to watch YouTube videos on DIY crown braids, especially during Art Basel. That's why BeGlammed is here to help with their on-demand delivery service. Through their accessible app, you can have someone else do it for you in no time. From updos to full makeup, BeGlammed’s stylists are ready to beautify you on the fly, which is exactly what you'll need when you get word that you're on the list for the most exclusive party in town.
If you have places to be and art exhibits to see, you're not going to have time to worry about your makeup. Thanks to the first cordless airbrushing makeup device, Temptu, you can easily carry this in your purse and maintain that flawless look all day long. It's no wonder this device has been religiously used by celebrity stylists. Available at Nordstrom at Dadeland Mall. 7239 N. Kendall Dr., Miami, 786-709-4100
Forget laying out at the beach for hours on end to achieve the perfect Miami tan; instead, do as Jennifer Lopez and Kim Kardashian do and get that golden glow by paying a quick visit (10 minutes) to Sobe Tan by Fabiola. "What contour does to the face, we do to the body," says Fabiola, aesthetician and owner of the tanning salon. And since it's done by hand, Fabiola pays special attention to the areas you want to augment or tone down most. Adios stretchmarks and tan lines. 1680 Michigan Ave., Miami Beach, 305-532-0221
It's no secret that you'll be in need of a glamorous outfit (or six) this week. Find everything you want and more at Miami's prime luxury destination, The Webster. Carrying all the latest trends and exclusive collaborations, this shopping mecca houses lust-worthy items in a three-story shrine with careful curation—just like the art you'll be scoping out during Art Basel. 1220 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 305-674-7899
