5 takeaways from The Makeup Show Chicago



I attended The Makeup Show Chicago and it was amazing.  As a Chicago blogger I love attending events like this and sharing it with my readers.  My Snapchat boos saw all the fun in real time.  I mean wall to wall lipstick, eyelashes and highlighters.  Beside feeling like a kid in a candy store I did learn a lot.  I want to share 5 takeaways from The Makeup Show Chicago.


My first takeaway from The Makeup Show 2016 is Chicago people go hard for makeup.  Guys and girls lined up early to see all The Makeup Show had to offer.  James Vincent  said this year was the most attended Makeup Show ever.



My second takeaway from The Makeup Show is the standard for beauty industry started in Chicago with Mario Tricoci.  During his keynote he spoke about his love for hair.  With all that his has accomplished he said he’s a hairdresser first.  He also spoke about the discipline that has guided his over 60 year career.






My third takeaway from The Makeup Show is everyone’s makeup up journey is different.  The Lip Bar started in 2011 when a Detroit native, Melissa Butler, decided to forever change the way you looked at lip color and with great products and hard work The Lip Bar can be found online at target.





My fourth takeaway from The Makeup Show is beauty brands are wall to wall.  Bring cash and credit to be safe side.  No one wants to leave their favorite lippie behind because they didn’t have the right currency. A separate blog post and Youtube video of my The Makeup Show haul is coming soon!





My fifth takeaway from The Makeup Show is when you come come ready to slay!  All styles are welcome.  Be the must beautiful you.  I saw some many stylish people with beat faces.  I feel all styles were represented from team natural to pin up.  It was great to be in a place were all forms of artistic expressions though make up and hair were displayed with confidence.




The Makeup show Chicago 2017 is already set.  This is the must-attend event for all makeup professionals in the Midwest!  I’ll be right back at it November 17-18, 2017.  Hope to see you there!
