Shelby here with a new obsession in Denver – Aillea shop on Larimer Street.
I have been transitioning all of my beauty products to non-toxic, natural products, and it has been a struggle to find natural makeup. I heard about Aillea from an aesthetician, so Shannon and I decided to check it out.
We fell in love with the light-filled shop and the the owner, Kathryn. She was so friendly and eager to help. Even though we were there to buy makeup, she offered to let us try out some natural skin care products – a brightening cleanser and a clearing mask. While we waited for the mask to do its job, we drank champagne and talked about Kathryn’s move from the makeup industry in New York to open this wonderful shop in Denver.
Next Kathryn did a complete makeup look on each of us. The best part was that Kathryn explained everything in detail with each product she used. She explained what the products were made out of and how to use them. We tried out foundation, concealer, translucent powder, blush, eye shadow, eye liner, mascara, eyebrow shaping wax, and lipstick. I bought my favorite products and walked out with a list of things to buy at a later time.
I loved every minute of my time at Aillea – I hope you all check it out soon!
