The time has long past since Instagram—along with the plethora of other social media platforms you can belong to—is exclusively a way to stalk your ex or stay in touch with your college friends. The photo-sharing app is now the place to discover the latest beauty trends, your new favorite products, and most importantly express yourself through a 'grammable hair and makeup moment.
That's exactly the inspiration behind September's theme at STORY, an ever-changing concept store in New York's Chelsea neighborhood. The store has partnered with Coty for "Beauty Story", to celebrate the diversity of beauty, which is visually celebrated by sharing images on social media.
