Beauty History of Libertyville, IL

Libertyville has a long and intricate history in the Beauty history of America. For example, Libertyville-based company Amazing Cosmetics started when its two founders were hunting for the perfect concealer. Unable to find a product for them, they banded together to make one.

Their product, Amazing Concealer was an immediate success and has since achieved cult status. Highly recommended by professional makeup artists, dermatologists and celebrities, this product is an example of how a little creativity and passion can take anyone far in the beauty industry.

As the lead female in the hit musical “Hamilton,” Phillipa Soo has upgraded her style from the funky highlights she had while attending middle school in Libertyville. Her beauty routine has become a part of her acting. “You put on your character when you put on your makeup,” she said. This attitude perfectly sums up the Libertyville beauty scene—it’s not just about how you look, it’s about how you feel.

Another Libertyville local brand, Allure Designs, made national headlines when Salon Today magazine recognized it in 2018 and 2019 for being one of the fastest-growing salons in the country. Nearing $1 million in annual revenue, owner Shelly Malizola says that this business achievement was possible because she delegated her work effectively and spent more time on management; this is why we teach business skills in all of our beauty programs.

Beauty Events in Libertyville, IL

If you’re interested in theatrical makeup application, you should make a point of attending Cosmetology Day during Fright Fest at Six Flags Great America. Makeup artists who attend this event can see first-hand what it takes to transform more than 100 actors into their ghoulish characters, a process that happens daily. This is not only informative, but also can help you to build a professional network early on.

Students and professionals in Libertyville may also want to attend Chicago beauty events. While this takes some travel, the benefits far outweigh the costs. In the nearby city, noteworthy events include the Chicago Fashion Week, Makeup Show Chicago, America’s Beauty Show and more.

There are also local beauty pageants to consider. Contestants’ hair and makeup will need to be runway-ready and are likely to reflect current styles, giving you a unique insight into a field that plays a huge part in the beauty industry. See who takes the crown at the Miss Libertyville beauty pageant and the Lake County Community Pageant Program.
