Fun, Glamorous and Feisty it will be--- the new series Chicagolicious premiering next Monday June 11 on The Style Network! I have been loving the new batch of shows featured lately by The Style Network and of course Chicagolicious is by far the most anticipated series of them all.
Already rated #1 by Star magazine!
And why wouldn't it be when it's based in Chicago! Austin Maxfield the glamourous and darling cast member of Chicagolicious is the youngest yet a driven young woman at the famed AJ's Chicago.

Last week I got to chat with Austin about what she is most excited about for the premiere of Chicagolicious, her favorite make-up techniques and valuable advice to other make-up artist just starting out:

CChic: Chicagolicious will be major for Chicago Beauty, what about the show are you most excited about!?
Austin Maxfield:
I feel that makeup artists and hair stylists tend to get overlooked when it comes to fashion because people seem to forget the hard work and time we put in to make everything come together flawlessly. What is exciting about "Chicagolicious" is that we show how hard we really work and all the obstacles that we must overcome to be successful. We are all real professionals who really do this for a living and now the world gets to see what happens behind the curtains of the fashion world!

CChic: What are some of your favorite trends this upcoming summer season in beauty and make-up?  

Austin Maxfield:

I myself have never been one to follow trends. I wear my makeup the way I want based on how I feel but I do love that one of the new trends is winged out liner because I am a sucker for anything that has to do with eyeliner.

C.Chic: Finally What advice would you give to other make-up artist who are just starting out with less experience?
Austin Maxfield:
The best advice I can give is to constantly work on your craft and do everything you can to get your name out there, whether it’s free or paid or if it's just doing your friends makeup every weekend. Also WEAR IT YOURSELF -- you are a walking billboard for your business.

Austin Maxfield is sure to be a favorite on the series with her fresh attitude and zest for beauty and fashion!
