Lauren Remington Platt's beauty-on-demand venture Vênsette is kind of the Seamless.com of hair and makeup: you log on, select from a menu of services, and within 90 minutes a professional is at your door, ready to overhaul your hair, your makeup, or both.
Starting Friday the 20th, Vênsette will pop up at Bloomingdale's for a weekend of on-site makeup applications at the discounted rate of $100. The first floor lounge will accomodate four chairs for appointments, which can be made by calling (212) 705-3777 or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
