If beauty’s only skin deep, why is there a nice buzz attached to a good hair day or a good skin day? That comes as no surprise to the staff at Cos Bar, which has locations in Edwards and Vail Village. “It’s nice being able to make the people of the Vail Valley look better and feel better,” said Shannon Elkins, assistant manager. She shops carry skin care products in addition to makeup. La Mer, a super-hydrating moisturizer that attacks redness, is very popular in Vail’s dry climate. Elkins’ favorite is La Prairie, which has an anti-aging moisturizing line.
Owned by Sandra Jacaruso, the Merle Norman Studio in Edwards carries skin care and color (makeup) products. The shop offers a “try before you buy” policy, as well as free makeovers. For those who prefer to shop in the privacy of their own home, Mary Kay comes to you. With a handful of local reps, the company behind the pink Cadillac seems to have as many beauty lines as it does customers.
