The Makeup Show Los Angeles

The Makeup Show held in Los Angeles was a makeup artist’s bliss. Dozens of remarkable brands of makeup, world reknowned experts in the field, and hundreds of budding estheticians, make-up artists, and hair stylists gathered at the California Market Center to behold the latest and the greatest in their respective fields.
Notable artists included Billy B, Sam Fine, Johnny Levoy, James Vincent, Uzo. I also did a hands on workshop for RCMA. These celebrity make-up and beauty experts gave talks or workshops on their own experiences and practices in the industry, what worked for them and/or tips and practices for other aspiring and up and coming future celebrity stylists/makeup experts. Between just the keynote speakers and guests these artists have worked with such notable celebrities such as Lady Gaga, Madonna, Tyra Banks, Gwen Stefani, Jennifer Hudson, Ke$ha, Janet Jackson, and so many more.
Everything was covered from body art to the practicalities of being in the business by the experts.
Some of the makeup lines and groups represented were:
MAKE UP FOR EVER,Crown Brush and Temptu Pro,NARS,Smashbox, Stila, INGLOT, Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics, Ruby Makeup Academy, The Powder Group and On Makeup Magazine. Other brands included: Alcone, Senna, Muse Beauty, Embryolisse USA, YoungbloodMineral Cosmetics, AJ Crimson Makeup, Kevyn Aucoin, South Seas Skincare, Billy B Beauty, Ellis Faas, Sam Fine Beauty, Cult Nails, RCMA.
Shelly Taggar said, “This was our fifth year in LA and each year becomes the most inspiring and best year yet. Attendees raved about the expansion of the show and all the new exhibitors that were added. We are now looking forward to four more shows this year in NYC, Chicago, Europe and Orlando.”
The show is unique in that is provides a unique opportunity for networking within the field they have chosen with the best of the best.
