Splurge or save? Beauty products

You don't have to spend a lot to get the same protections as products found in spas and dermatologist offices.

Beauty and fashion expert, Stephenie Wise has her top beauty suggestions on the products you should consider splurging on and alternatives that could save you money.

On April 6, from 2:00pm - 6:00pm, Stephenie will be at the Koh Gen Do counter at Barney's Chicago. There, makeup artist Eric Holt will be giving visitors free makeovers, while Stephenie gives them free individual beauty advice on the products and colors that work best on their faces.
