Rebecca Restrepo, global makeup artist with Elizabeth Arden.

Who doesn’t love a getaway in NYC? All that shopping, loads of places to eat and drink, but I also love snagging some amazing beauty finds while there. When Rebecca Restrepo, a New York native and
Elizabeth Arden’s global makeup artist made a stop in Toronto recently, I quizzed her about New York’s best beauty haunts. With her 
flawless skin and perfectly coiffed hair, I knew that I’d be getting an insider’s guide to all things beauty in NYC. Here are Rebecca’s top picks for beauty in New York.
3 reasons Rebecca loves NYC
1) I love the accessibility of beauty products from everywhere in the world.
2) I also love the pulse/energy that is felt at all times in the city. I believe it is that pulse that gives everyone in NYC so much drive. There is always something fun and interesting to do.
3) I find the architecture in NYC to be so beautiful. From midtown sky scrapers, Grand Central, all the amazing brown stones and the new High Line just to name a few.
