In preparation for our Chic Studios makeup school in Denver, our team did a lot of research in how large the beauty community is in the city. It may not be like New York and Los Angeles, but it’s growing! We always love being a part of local beauty events, so we did our best to see if there were any in the city that needed a beauty bar.
