For the third executive year The Makeup Show has set its sights on Dallas to bring leading make up artists, directors and brand owners to the Big D. The Makeup Show has a simple mission to create an opportunity to flourish and develop beauty talent in top beauty markets around the world. The Makeup Show is the largest pro-only makeup event in the United States and considers Dallas not just a major beauty market in the country but the world. At The Makeup Show not only will you have the opportunity to get to sit in on dozens of makeup classes, seminars and panels on topics like creating the perfect brows, on camera make up for men and ……as well as have the opportunity to meet brand owners, legendary artists in the industry and build your kit through shopping the vendors which offer pro discounts for attendees. One of the many key take aways we noticed was that at The Makeup Show it doesn’t matter where you come from, how much money you have or what label you wear in society it’s about owning and harvesting your creativity in an inspiring and welcoming environment. The two-day event that was held at the Hyatt Regency In Downtown Dallas also features a healthy amount of indie brands and online cosmetic stores like Voo Doo Cosmetics, Danessa Myrics Beauty, Alcone, Frends and even a Dallas gem we were excited to find, Camera Ready Cosmetics. While artists get the chance to make connections with indie brands they also get to shop long time favorites like Make Up Forever, Anastasia Beverlly Hills, M.A.C. Cosmetics, Nars as well as first time exhibitors Kat Von D Beauty and Estee Lauder. If you live in Chicago, NYC or L.A. check out The Makeup Show when they head your way in the next few months.
