During fashion month, we talk about three things — 1. the collections (because isn’t that what’s it’s all about?) 2. street style (what happens outside the shows has now become just as important as what happens on the runway, whether we like it or not) and 3. celebrity sightings…but mostly just Kim K’s new platinum hair (Jared too!) The beauty scene doesn’t get as much attention, so today I thought we’d change all that.
When it comes to beauty, I feel the same way as I do about fashion — I’m always looking for that cool new emerging brand that’s doing something no one else is doing (which is pretty difficult to do in either industry). Because this is ChiCityFashion (which is quite fashion-focused) I can’t forget about my other love, beauty. I haven’t touched on the subject in a while (with the exception of this) because there hasn’t been anything that’s really stuck out to me worthy of sharing on CCF. But that all changed last Thursday night…
I hate to make another one of those “beauty obsessions” posts (I’m sure you see plenty) but I’ve been trying a lot of new products lately and I haven’t done a beauty post in a while, so I thought I’d give it a go. This isn’t necessarily a summer beauty feature (these products are great now as well as year round) but because it’s July which means summer is in full swing (although that’s questionable in Chicago) it’s time to get your July beautified.
A lot of people have a tough time incorporating color into their wardrobe, and I always say the easiest way to do so is by utilizing bright accessories. But now with so many colorful shoes, jewelry and bags on the market…the accessories world can be a bit overwhelming. The simplest way to utilize color is the most intimidating for a lot of women. Can you guess what it is?
