Every country and culture has it’s own holiday customs. Whether it’s Christmas or New Year’s Eve, festivities can vary drastically even within country borders. Some holidays like Day of the Dead have been around for centuries, and others like the celebration of Kwanzaa are relatively new.

Beauty brand CoverGirl has opened its first-ever retail location in New York City. I visited the two-floor store and was impressed by its wide range of makeup and apparel. The store is full of new technology, including a virtual greeter and video booth. While I’m not sure that I would frequently shop at the CoverGirl store, the stand-alone location features some promising assets and pushes the future of the beauty industry forward.
