Chicago Parent summer mom makeovers: August

Alas our Chicago Mom Makeover series has come to an end. My team and I had a wonderful time making over the moms and I want to thank all of the wonderful mothers who submitted entries.

We conclude our summer series with a submission received from Brian for his wife Sara, a stay-at-home mom of five.

His heartfelt submission and desire for his wife to get pampered was all the convincing we needed to select Sara as the recipient of this month’s makeover.

We teamed up with Jamenda, owner of Belle Up Boutique, and Jasmine from Crystal Eyez Makeup Artistry to give our mom Sara a new look!

Using a color palette which complimented her skin tone, Jasmine was able to enhance Sara’s natural beauty.

Then came the outfits!

While discussing her personal style, Sara confessed that she normally gravitates toward solid colors and her go-to look usually consists of denim. Thankfully for us and her, Belle Up Boutique housed enough bold prints to sway Sara away from her usual jeans and give her an unforgettable experience.
