Summer Beauty Favorites From One Of Chicago's Hottest Style Bloggers

chicago style blogger's beauty faves
We've got summer on the brain, and we're not alone. Jena Gambaccini, local style blogger at ChiCityFashion and member of The Style Tribe, chatted with us about her summer beauty must-haves. "I've been a beauty junkie since I was a kid. Whether it was experimenting with MAC's Pink Freeze eyeshadow in middle school or trying my first under-eye cream when I was 15, I've always found it important to keep my hair, skin, and nails as healthy as possible. I've tried a ton of beauty products over the years and I definitely have my go-tos." We liked her faves so much we were inspired to do a complete beauty overhaul. Are you ready for a revamp, too?
