Recently one Sunday as I was wandering downtown Charleston I decided to stop into Pink Dot Beauty Bar. I had heard about the space from my friend Lacey Reeves at Luxe Beat Mag and I recently worked on a wedding with one of their main makeup guru’s Andrew Petersen. Upon entering I immediately noticed the bright, warm space. Housed in a two story building on Meeting St. the beauty bar has beautiful exposed brick walls and a white and mint interior. Walking in you immediately feel comfortable, like you are entering your best friends amazing powder room. For a girl like me who isn’t a makeup maestro and feels more than uncomfortable at department store beauty counters, Pink Dot was a breath of fresh air. Demetrius could not have been sweeter and I thoroughly enjoyed spending time chatting with him as he showed me makeup techniques. Owner Meghan Walker founded the Pink Dot Beauty Bar as a makeup store specializing in smaller “Indie” brands. The laid-back space is full of high-end labels like Susan Posnick, Ellis Faas and Sunday Riley. In addition to the first floor boutique Pink Dot Beauty Bar also offers an upstairs room, perfect as a bridal party getting ready space or a venue to hold your next girls night makeover party! So the next time you are in town, stop into Pink Dot Beauty Bar. Who knows, you might pick up some new beauty tips or a new shade of gloss!
