SMUStyle Fête Set: Uptown Makeup Grand Opening

We are frequenters of the oh-so-trendy boutique L.Bartlett, so when owner Laura Bush (no relation to the former First Lady) decided to open UpTown Makeup — a beauty boutique on par with our Shop Savvy standards — we just knew a makeup revolution was imminent.

The West Village boutique (3699 McKinney Ave. Suite 102) carries all the lines you love (Smashbox, Fresh, Too Faced et al) in a sleek little shopper-friendly space.

Where we’ll be blushing Thursday night? Celebrating UpTown Makeup’s grand opening. See the invite for details!

Dine Dish: Smoke at the Belmont Hotel

SMUStyle Dine Dish: Smoke

When was the last time (if ever) you ventured over to Oak Cliff? That’s what I thought, which is why you should make tracks to Smoke, chef/co-owner Tim Byres’ new grub stop at the Belmont Hotel. Because stepping outside the SMU bubble always does a body good. Especially when it involves comfort food.

Imagine this equation: The Belmont’s retro vibe + old-fashioned cooking with hickory, oak, mesquite and pecan woods + a cold smokehouse, barbeque pit, and hardwood grill + all the BBQ you can imagine + lead designer Mike Thompson’s Texas-style decor.

What does this all equal? A great dining adventure — a reason to finally make that trip to Oak Cliff.

Head to 901 Fort Worth Avenue, Dallas, 75208 or call 214.393.4141 for details.
