Local makeup artistry school Make Up First debuted its new line of private-label palettes at the Makeup Show this past weekend. At the booth, the school's owner Jill Glaser demonstrated her technique for prepping a "melt-proof bride" (hint: you can use these products to achieve the look.)
Called First, the line was created by Maqpro just for the downtown school. The collection includes six-and-ten-pan palettes ($35) of fard creme (wax-based, multi-purpose formulas) that include skin-tone correctors and lip and cheek creams. There are also high-definition finishing powders ($12.50) in pink and beige, lip glosses ($9), and loose shimmer pigments ($5).
The products can be picked up online, or at the makeup school on La Salle Street. If you do have time to swing by in person, we recommend the brick-and-mortar route in this case: Make Up First claims to be the only place in the Midwest to buy products from Embryolisse, The Art of Beauty by Linda Mason, and more.
