This year, the show brought a great platform for attendees to network, learn, get inspired, receive amazing deals on some of the top brands in the world, and so much more!
Shelly Taggar, Owner of The Makeup Show states, “The Makeup Show is so much more than just a trade show. It is a place for artists to network, shop, take classes, set new beauty trends in the industry, and for top brands to launch new products to the pro community. With our increase in education this year there was an even stronger sense of community and inspiration for artists. Our goal for the show is to continuously change people’s lives by creating new opportunities and inspiring artists to advance in their careers. I’m very proud of what this show has become and look forward to continuing to achieve these goal in Orlando, Chicago, and Los Angeles.”
Below you will find a snapshot of what the weekend offered.
