I am excited to share with you guys a collaboration I did with Clinique in celebration of the beauty brand’s upcoming Pretty in A New York Minute Event at the Bloomingdales on 59th Street today in NYC. I photographed my Clinique “Beauty a la Carte” look in the beautiful DUMBO, Brooklyn, one of the NYC neighborhoods that has always endlessly inspired me. DUMBO and I go way back to 2011, when my sister first moved to NYC and I just moved to Philadelphia just a few months before her. I was back and forth between NYC and Philly nearly twice a month, sometimes even more, for work and for my personal enjoyment. My sister’s first NYC apartment was in DUMBO, and so this was our stomping grounds that first east coast summer that we shared. As soon as my bus got into NYC, I’d meet my sister for some Asian food near Washington Square Park, then take the subway down to where the Brooklyn Bridge starts in Manhattan, and walk across it all the way to back to her place in DUMBO. Hot and sticky. Late into the night. The loud sound of the subway train going right above my sister’s apartment windows. The noise took some some getting used to, but it was something we almost couldn’t live without. It was the sound of the city that we admired, the city that drove our inspirations.
So here is my Clinique beauty look, inspired by the city I live in, and especially DUMBO because that is where it all started. To create the beauty look I am wearing in this post, I used these Clinique products:
