Outside of my birthday and Christmas, one of my favorites times of year is The Makeup Show! I love watching the haul videos, checking out the booths and classes, and just seeing so many people who share a common interest, beauty, in one place. It’s seriously exhilarating. I’m so excited to tell you guys that I’ll be rocking a press pass at The Makeup Show on behalf of Feel Good Look Amazing! How cool is that?!
The Makeup Show is an international trade show for makeup artists, industry professionals, makeup enthusiasts, and everyone in between. The two day event stops in Dallas, Orlando, Los Angeles, New York City, Europe, and Chicago. The Makeup Show Chicago will be held at The Bridgeport Art Center (1200 W 35th Street) on November 7th and 8th. Noticeable change from last year when it was held in June during super amazing weather so fingers crossed the weather will be mild and still autumn vs. Chicago winter.
This will be my second year attending TMS – Chicago and I’m 100% ready for it. I’m really looking forward to picking up new products, hearing from industry insiders, and seeing what’s on the horizon in the beauty industry. Most of all I can’t wait to bring you all some great info, new products, and industry news.
Last year at TMS, I had a general idea of things I wanted to grab and information I wanted to get into. This year, I’m putting those thoughts to paper because it can be an overwhelming experience and days later I had an “oh man I forgot xyz” moment. I don’t want to miss out on anything so I’m making sure I have a good plan in place to take everything in.
In addition to tons of exhibitors and product demos, the high point of The Makeup Show are the keynote forums. This year’s keynote speakers include Ashaunta Sheriff, AJ Crimson, Derrick Rutledge, and James Vincent. The keynote forum cover major topics in the beauty industry like fashion trends, diversity, branding, and more. Outside of the keynotes there are hands-on workshops to participate in that will be covering bridal makeup, contouring, color theory, even lashes and brows! All hot topics that every makeup artist and glamour girl should try to perfect. There’s even a career fair over the weekend, it’s so amazing! If you can’t tell I’m super excited about this year’s show and it’s less than a month away!
