We love ourselves a party, but sometimes getting ready for a big bash can be more fun than the actual event. You know the drill: Katy Perry’s blasting, the bubbly’s flowing, and you’re dancing around with your best friends while prepping your hair and makeup.
Makeup artist Stefanie Syat (who’s responsible for many of the gorgeous faces at our video shoots!) has turned party pre-gaming into a profession with her Pre-Dame service, which brings Syat and her team—armed with everything from false lashes to champagne—over to your house to get the pre-party started. Syat’s business is based on her own experience: “I was always the one with champagne in hand, glamming them up,” she says.
And now, Syat has expanded even further with the Pre-Dame Lip ‘N’ Lash Bar, a pop-up makeup station available for events. “I wanted to create something that would take a person’s look from ‘party pretty’ to ‘party stunning’ in less than five minutes,” says Syat. “False lashes and a pop on the lips do exactly that.”
Syat is especially excited about the bar’s pièce de résistance: the Bold Gel Eye Liner. “We finish off the look with one of seven bold colors ranging from classic black to metallic silver,” she says. “It’s our newest obsession, and we just can't get enough!”
In addition to makeup services, partygoers who stop by the bar take home a Pre-Dame namesake lip gloss, only available at Pre-Dame events. “I created a line that is creamy, buildable, and pigmented,” says Syat. “We have three signature colors (Wow, Dream, and Zorro) and add a new color each season. For summer, we added an opaque light pink called Pink Perfection, and for this holiday season, we made Cabernet, which doubles as a stain and a gloss.”
For Syat, the best part of the service is surprising people who are willing to try out new looks. “It's amazing how a soft smoky eye, a gorgeous strip of lashes, or a hot red lip makes you look at yourself in the mirror with a little extra twinkle in your eye,” she says. “Our goal as Pre-Dame makeup artists is to bring high fashion makeup to the everyday girl, and we have a blast while doing it.” For more information, check out Predame.com.
