There are places where I, implying that you not visit it for the soul, but because you somehow must, or should. To become schlau(er) for example – or for’s good conscience. Places for the mind stop: the University, the dentist, piano concertos, the brother-in-law, the salad bar and the boring, of course. And then there’s just these places, it is looking on from time to time alone or in society, and exclusively for the heart and the outrageous need for self Liebhabung. And this is so well

I call that – beauty spots and there are quite a few. The best and say I will show most distinctive you in my new series of the greatest beauty spots in the world. Making the beginning on my beauty map today: jacks beauty Department in Berlin.

Correctly heard, today I am Department, so to speak, the Berlin beauty Mecca on my first appointment at all in Jack’s beauty par excellence: A bubbling years beauty concept store for the all-round beauty package with its own, appearing twice a year magazine and an online store, not by bad parents, provided with products that you otherwise don’t get on every corner and even including its own line on the shelf. With it are among others John masters organic, LAQA & co, and GRETEL, make-up Designory cosmetics à La Carte, Karmameju, Ellis Faas, gorgeous, mawilove, treat collection, Brooklyn SOAP company, Mitchell & peach, and many more.

Now also brand new on much larger area in the heart of Prenzlauer Berg. After six years, found Miriam and her team at that time still teeny weeny’s then highest railway to magnify their beauty Kingdom and moved in the last month of the cute mini shops on the Kollwitzplatz in a two-story spa located on the Avenue of chestnut trees. Now or never told and zack made done.

Many in the beauty country might be a term the name of Jack’s. Miriam of girl boss, Make-Up artist, Lorèal Ambassador and also mixes the beautiful world out there with their arts (and its rays) part on. Behind her, one suspects an armada of managing teams — indeed, until a month ago, the crew consisted of very few employees. I meet Susanne Gromoll, her character makeup artist master and longstanding store manager today at the Department. Susanne is responsible for all internal at the headquarters in Prenzlauer Berg, also for the beauty of gang has grown to eight heads. Also, the range of services and treatments offered at Jack’s has grown. Once there the classic Nailbar (now with Pedi), a Hairdresser in the basement, fachfrauische consulting and specialty: Make-Up for every occasion. Caution your men – recently also a Barber.

As always as unprepared, I sit on one of the makeup chairs in bright upstairs. The institution is not just resting the eyes: in every corner: beautiful, clever details put together between the carefully selected beauty products can be found with love and style. Once I please “Makeup” and the charming Susanne directly go by we just babble about me, my plans so that and the look. Then she roars through the well scented rooms over at the fancy lettering and returns with a selection of products and a plan: “Beautiful of course – spring – type according to” – I breathe:

– Foundation and GRETEL No.2

– Paris Berlin perfect touch concealer No. 100

– cosmetics of a la card cream blush Angel


– portable lid – Paris Berlin No. 6

– cosmetics à la card eyeliner blossom

– Eyeco magic eyes gel eyeliner powder pink

– Eyeco sports mascara

– Tweezerman brow mousse

– eyebrow pencil Nouba No.18

– Nouba lipstick No. 409

Conclusion: while I so look at the range of colours and textures and admire the result of great, fresh in my face, I understand why it was smart, come here: I would have taken in life not the lipstick “Mud crap 200” or made the contouring with a purple stitch-shadow – although exactly that perfectly meets the skin tone. On the idea to choose a delicate pastel eyeliner, I would never have come without patient professional help and I did not know also what you can do against my red eyelids and which is the organic alternative to my Lieblinsfoundation.

Overall I got myself here in the jacks beauty Department so comfortable, that I would have stayed one to six hours longer on the loved one. But fortunately, the new beauty spot located right in my hood. I therefore return!

Thank you jacks beauty Department – nicely done!
