In a world where beauty and youth is usually portrayed in a negative way to women, I was relieved and inspired when I walked into Chalet, a beauty supply store and boutique located at 5926 Broadway. Andrea Rodriguez, owner of Chalet, spoke about make up and skincare in such an organic way; she described our skincare and beauty routine as a time for wellness for ourselves, and I couldn’t agree more.

img_5342The Chalet team has created good for you and effective makeup that’s eco-friendly, cruelty free, and fun to use. Chalet offers toners, cleansers, creams and more for skin care. All products feature powerful anti aging and natural ingredients including fruit extract, coco butter and avocado oil.

img_5337Along with everything you need for a tip-top skin routine, Chalet also sells its own line of makeup! In case that wasn’t enough, they also have a beauty guru, Monica, in the store Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monica provides complimentary makeup services for the locally manufactured makeup brand. After my mini make over, I found myself taking quite a few selfies.

img_5338-2I mentioned Chalet is also a boutique, right? After (or before!) your makeup haul, shop the collections of Free People, Kendra Scott and more. Andrea also let me know that Chalet will soon be carrying the popular online brand, For Love and Lemons! Personally, I have been obsessed with the brand since I came across its Instagram page years ago. Get ready for skivvies, pajamas and body suits galore!
