Name & Age:
Amanda Reed, 32
TenOverSix, Store Manager
A little background:
I've lived in Dallas since 2001 and have worked in fashion since graduating from UNT in 2007. I currently manage TenOverSix at the Joule hotel and we have been open for a year and a half. We carry a mix of organic beauty, arts, handmade gifts and independent designer goods from predominately LA and NYC. It's so fun seeing the changes that are happening with downtown Dallas and being a part of that has been such a great experience.
Beauty regimens and tips?
I'm crazy about washing my face every night and I use eSpa's Balancing Herbal Toner to get all of the makeup off - it helps that the smell is great too. My makeup trick is to use a cream blush like Ilia's All of Me and highlight cheeks with Mac's Soft and Gentle mineralizing powder. It gives that young, healthy luminous look everyone is after. I also use Tata Harper's Resurfacing Mask after a long weekend to get back to normal.
What are your favorite local DFW beauty brands and/or beauty related services?
My hair is a huge part of my overall look and Clive at Clive and Co. really took it to the next level for me this year after having a long bob forever. For minimal nail art I see my girl Patricia Valle at Beauty Bar - also one of my favorite dance spots in Dallas.
Holidays are here...any local must-have items on your shop list?
If you could have dinner with any local DFW woman, who would it be?
I'd have to say Christen Wilson - her style takes the cake.
Any last words?
My overall life advice for women trying to figure out what they are supposed to do in life is to try a million things rather than waiting for a huge epiphany. Then you just fall into it, and everything seems to work out with ease.
