Date: February 7. Venue: Lady Boss – 65 Page Avenue, Staten Island
VH1 – Mob Wives reality star and freelance makeup artist, Drita D’Avanzo, hosts a grand opening for her 2nd cosmetics shop in her home borough of Staten Island. The cozy crimson space boasts cool vintage props, a popcorn machine, antique telephone, juxe box, vanity mirror with lights, and homage to Old Hollywood’s Marilyn Monroe.
Guests delighted in tasty treats, cake bites, bubbly and mixed beats by DJ Nyce.
Fully equipped beauty stations came with hair-styling tools, a makeup counter of Drita’s own custom cosmetics and brush sets.
Behind the register stood a rack of Lady Boss snapback hats and a shelf of Lady Boss skin care & foundation. In keeping with the boss-theme, hanging on the wall was a collage of Scarface’s beloved fictional character, Tony Montana.
Lady Boss apparel features hoodies, t-shirts and cool accessories, like mugs, cell phone cases and handbags.
Jesenia’s Goodie Bag catches up with the fire-red Lady Boss herself to discuss all things beauty, sharing with JGB Editor her featured product, the Mineral Liquid Powder Foundation (with SPF 15), which comes in 5 skin-enhancing colors. Drita’s favorite makeup trend is housed in her top-selling Lady Boss Palette (a bevy of lip colors and eye shadows), 12 nude, red and dark lip shades, and 12 eye colors in pastel, slate and jewel.
It is Drita D’Avanzo’s company mission to offer clients superior quality without a high-end price tag, made available at her shops or online.
