Prospect Park Beauty Edition – WWD

Smorgasburg is a people watching hot spot. Held on Sundays at Prospect Park, the outdoor food festival offers a concentrated dose of the individuality that exists amongst Latest York’s Brooklyn residents.

“I’m a mom, so whatever gets me ready in five minutes,” said one stroller-pushing passerby, whose go-to is a sleek bun, fluffy brows and, all the time, Chanel mascara.

Just a number of steps away is a former worker of Chanel’s SoHo store. Her skincare advice? “You might have to know your skin and the way it responds to outside stress.” Her bouncy, bronze-colored curls are in full form today, but she’s been known to trek as much as Williamsburg for a chemical Japanese hair straightening treatment here and there.

Yaya Glam Studio in Crown Heights, though, is where Charmaine Wright’s blonde topknot and edgy undercut is perfected. “I shaved my head three years ago — now, I am going light in the summertime and dark within the winter,” Wright said. She’s sitting next to her friend Nicky Brown, who has blended Supergoop CC Screen and Rare Beauty Liquid Touch Foundation for her base, and frequents Feel Beauty Supply in Flatbush for her day-to-day beauty needs.

Kayla Rodriguez:

“That is my face crown — for when crowns are an excessive amount of and glasses aren’t enough,” said Kayla Rodriguez, a Taíno, Salvadoran and Greek wire-wrapping artist who operates a stand at Smorgasburg for her jewelry business, QueloKayDesigns. “I’m a Gemini moon, so I’m very adaptable — I’m all the time changing my hair,” she continued. “I used to do 4 thick braids but it surely felt silly so now I just do two; I alter out the crystals depending on the day, but they’re all the time turquoise.”
