I recently ran into a friend who have I haven’t seen in years and filled her in on all the exciting news about Mad Rouge Beauty. I watched her eyes grow wide with excitement as she asked, “You can actually do that? What exactly does a Mad Rouge party look like and where can I find one!?” So, let me take a moment to highlight what we do exactly.
If you are looking for a different, exciting, empowering (and educational for many) party in the Santa Monica and Los Angeles area, Mad Rouge Beauty might have your next perfect party! One of the best things about Mad Rouge Beauty is that we bring the party to you! We bring all the raw ingredients, supplies, and know-how to teach your guests how to make their own safe, natural beauty products, free of sketchy chemicals (while getting some inspiration through science!). We offer a variety of party packages for kids and adults to create their own lip gloss, nail polish, lipstick, eyeshadow, and more! Mad Rouge Beauty can be booked for almost any event, from private parties to corporate events. Your guests will create and bottle their own unique formula, finished with a custom label, to take home as a special memory from your event. Mad Rouge Beauty can be booked for birthday parties, slumber parties, sweet 16, hobby activities, school enrichment, bachelorette and bridal showers, ladies night, special celebrations, youth or adult clubs, friendly gatherings – you name it! For larger events, such as bat mitzvahs, holiday parties, company parties, corporate events, product launches, team building and more, we bring a Pop-Up Bar to you! Mad Rouge Beauty has something for everyone and we encourage you to think outside the box!
To highlight one of our most popular packages for the youngest guests (ages 6 and up), the lip gloss party is the perfect first step to learning about the science of natural lip gloss and trying their own hand at being a cosmetic chemist (while having the fun of getting their hands messy!). Children get an up close and personal demonstration of applied chemistry and color theory. Some of the topics we review during our fun and hands-on demonstration may include, how do you turn a solid (i.e., natural wax beads) into a liquid, mix up the perfect consistency, and craft your own color creation? Your party guests will be supplied with all the tools they will need and will get to select from various ingredients and packaging offered. Using a natural lip gloss base, they will experiment with adding just the right amount of oil (e.g., coconut, sweet almond, jojoba) to achieve the best consistency and add a natural conditioner for their lips. Using the concepts of color theory, children will dive into mixing up their own color creation from natural mica powders and liquid dyes. What happens when you mix Scarlet O’Hara Pink, Mermaid’s Gold, and a touch of white, red, or orange? Scents may also be added using natural flavor oils. Product formulas are broken into small steps and guests are encouraged to record each of their steps, including ingredients and amounts used. This process helps to teach the importance of recording the steps to achieve their own unique formula, as well as making observations about something they may want to change (e.g., too thin/thick, light/dark). I can attest that after bottling the formula (with fun, goopy syringes), creating a custom color name and label is the best topper to this party!
Tweens, teens and adults alike cannot get enough of the nail polish parties! What better way to re-invent the old mani/pedi than to create your own color as unique as you are with your favorite friends cheering you on? Guests experiment with color theory and texture. You can create something matte, rich and glossy, or pale and shimmery. There are no mistakes, only unexpected outcomes when selecting unique color combinations. You can select from a fun assortment of bottles and add your own personal touch with a custom color name and label. We use a non-toxic base that does not contain the known carcinogens formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate, toluene, camphor and formaldehyde resin. This makes our polishes an especially safe option for children and moms-to-be, and helps to create a safer and greener environment.
My favorite way to glam up any gathering: The lipstick party! Try your hand at creating the perfect red, remaking that favorite shade, or surprising yourself with something new! Melt, mix, and mold your own color and choose the perfect tube to fit your own unique personality. Want to learn the secret to getting your lipstick into the tube? Book a lipstick party to find out! Invite your favorite pals, open the bubbly and revel in the wonderment of your own creations, because why should cosmetic chemists have all the fun? Tweens and teens can also try their hand at finding a natural alternative to store-brand lipsticks with just the right sheen and shimmer.
Is there anything cooler than creating your own customized, natural eyeshadow palette as gorgeous as anything you can find in a department store?! Find your inner artist as you mix a blend of natural micas and a binder and tile-press them into a pressed shadow (or omit the binder for loose shadows). Using color theory, create just the right palette for your unique eye shape and color and don’t forget to mix up something bold!
For larger events, Mad Rouge Beauty’s pop-up bar is the perfect complement to your private event, such as corporate events, company parties, weddings, Bat Mitzvahs, and more. At our lip gloss bar, guests get to create their own natural lip gloss, finished with a custom label, to take-home as a special memory from your event. A demonstration and hands-on assistance are provided for each guest while they create and bottle their own unique formula. Be the talk of the town with our unique pop-up bar experience for your guests!
My girlfriend couldn’t pull out her calendar fast enough to schedule a birthday party for her daughter AND her next ladies night with her gals!
