Chicago asked and The Makeup Show answered.  We wanted to have The Makeup Show visited Chicago biannually like they do for other markets.  November 2016 Makeup Show being the largest ever was the kick out to the professional show revisiting for second time in six month.  The theme of this Makeup show was 3 fold.  The business of Bridal Beauty, Artist’s Kit Building and Makeup in the social media space.

I did a little shopping.  With so many brands in attendance I did a lot of shopping.  I visited a few of my favorite brands.  After shopping I attended James Vincent and two of Chicago area social media stars.  On a panel aimed to study the power and influence that social media has on today’s beauty industry were Jaz Jackson and Ivy Dear.
