The Makeup Show Dallas 2014

Finally, I was able to attend the Makeup Show! This is the first time The Makeup Show has come to Texas, and I am so glad that they did! Unlike other makeup trade shows, the Makeup Show is exclusive to makeup artists, and offers professional discounts on several pro brands. They provide so many educational opportunities in the form of workshops, demonstrations, and lectures. I attended the live video chat with one of my makeup inspirations, Wayne Goss. I also sat in on talks by a few other amazing makeup artists, including James Vincent, Melanie Inglessis, and Brian Sutherby. Hearing directly from these pros about their years in the industry was such an invaluable learning experience.

 

Some of my pictures are a little blury... next time I'll bring a better camera! Above is a picture of Brian Sutherby giving a demonstration using Kett airbrush foundations (my go-to foundation).

A peak into my haul from the show. I am completely impressed by all of the new products I'm trying.
The standout items for me are the Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer - an amazing little jar of foundation, and the Inglot eyeshadows. I also picked up some items from Anastasia Beverly Hills, OCC, Nars, Mehron, Smashbox,  Muse, Gleam by Melanie Mills, and Chikuhodo.
I'm already looking forward to next year's Makeup Show!
