It’s that perpetual time of year again where we are all filled to the brim with holiday cheer, social gatherings, and enough eggnog to last us a lifetime and a half. Between the holiday parties, work events, engagement season, bridal showers, you name it, it’s on all of our agendas to attend. But what if I told you that there was a way to make the pre-game for your events less hectic? What if I told you that you could relax, snap your fingers, and suddenly be transformed into a glam goddess ready to take on the world? Well, now you can with Elite Secrets!


On Thursday, as city-goers bustle outside in the crisp December air, Elite Secrets and Level 23  hosted a Beauty Soiree for those with a passion for beauty to mingle in the warmth, nibble on lovely foods, and meet other inspiring and enthusiastic individuals. Open to everyone, this event was a fantastic way to kick off the holiday season: with luxurious products, stocking stuffers, raffles, and glam transformations galore.



If you’ve never attended one of Latonya’s events, you’re in for a magical experience as you walk into the beauty haven to find an array of plush seating, sophisticated decor, and elegant hand-made dresses on display.


From the moment you walk in you are greeted with warm smiles and hellos as you make your way over to have a quick bite to eat. As you indulge, sit back and have lovely conversation with others before making your way over to the gold shimmering table with makeup treats. From blush palettes, to lipsticks and lip glosses, you are able to purchase a wide arrange of products for your loved ones - or, if you’re in for a pamper night, go ahead and pick up some goodies for your own collection. After all, there’s no such thing as too many lipsticks, am I right? And let’s not forget: there is the most decadent hand-made paper mache backdrop to take photos in front of after you get transformed by Latonya and her team.

This beautiful backdrop was made by Creative Forte Events!


It’s a surreal feeling to see people radiate with happiness as she works her magic, enhancing one’s natural beauty, and makes them that much more confident for their events. The excitement one feels after getting their makeup done by the lovely Tonya is remarkable; she truly pampers her clients and guests.





And speaking of pampering, Level 23 spent the evening styling guests hair, which was the best final touch a girl could ask for. Tenease Flowers is a fantastic hair stylist in Baltimore, and offers a variety of services including: bridal and event styling, hair coloring and cutting. You won’t want to miss out on Tenease, so make sure to call and book the duo for your next event! Details will be listed at the bottom of this post.
