Makeup artist and store founder Michael Perich stocks an array of makeup products, garnering his store features in Chicago Bride and Chicago Shops magazines. Eye shadows ($16.50) and blushes ($18.50) boast high pigment levels, allowing smaller applications to imbue visages with vibrant and long-lasting color. Meanwhile, Skin F/X can act as a concealer or eye-shadow base ($39), Eye Tonic, an eye cream ($45), blankets the under-eye area, and Lip Lava gloss ($19.50) glides across kissers to leave them as shiny as a freshly minted penny dipped in canola oil.
As a child, Michael Perich watched in awe as the women in his life enhanced their features and self-esteem by applying makeup. His wonder turned into passion when he became an expert in color theory and cosmetic techniques. As his talent grew, so did his portfolio, media recognition, and the pressure to sell, sell, sell. He found himself disillusioned. So in 2004, he opened Camp Cosmetics to return to his true passion—educating women and helping them feel beautiful and confident. Today, his Chicagoland store provides cruelty-free products made with botanical extracts and high pigment levels that keep reapplication to a minimum.
