THE MAKEUP SHOW CHICAGO ~ TRULY AMAZING!

On Sunday, June 17th, I had the pleasure of covering THE MAKEUP SHOW CHICAGO 2012 for It’s A Glam Thing ! It was a beautiful day in the “Windy City” and I was really geared up to check out every inch of VENUE ONE, in Chicago’s West Loop, where THE MAKEUP SHOW CHICAGO was being held!

The show is the “largest PRO-ONLY beauty event” in Chicago so I was prepared for a lot of Midwest professionals to be in attendance.

Celebrity Makeup Artists, top of the line Beauty Professionals, Educators, the finest of Brand Name Cosmetic companies, and so much more filled the two floors of VENUE ONE, and yes….. I felt like a “kid” in a “Candy Store” !! (As I’m sure all of the attendees did,as well.)

There were workshops, new products , cutting edge trends, school programs & more! I was there on the first day of this two day extravaganza!

Just after arriving, Press Contact, Melody O’Flaherty introduced me to the owner of THE MAKEUP SHOW CHICAGO, Shelly Tagger, and James Vincent, one of the internationally acclaimed Makeup Artists and part of the educational team of THE MAKEUP SHOW CHICAGO.
James,”has worked with celebrities including Lady Gaga, Liv Tyler, Joan Jett, and Jane Fonda, and has been featured on numerous television shows as a beauty expert!” (Quote from press information)

My first “photo-op”! Melody was kind enough to take my picture with James and Shelly, who were both so delightful to meet and get to know!

I asked James if in the near future if I might be able to interview him, and he graciously agreed! WOW Glam Gals… Keep checking in!! I can promise you that will be a fun and educational interview!!

As I was on my way into the show, Melody gave me a bag filled with lots of wonderful “goodies” from a number of the vendors in the event! I was so excited to get home to see what was inside!

I could write a book about this show, but I’ll get right to the point!! I was able to take in a few of the classes, and they were great! I bought some new products that I look forward to trying and writing about , and I have talked with the owner of a Makeup Artistry School, the co-owner of an HD-TV makeup company, and OCC’s (Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics) CEO/Creative Director, David Klasfeld, and will be doing interviews with all of them in the near future.

You’ll be right on top of things with the trends, products, and tips from the pros right here on “It’s A Glam Thing”!

The day went by so quickly, but the memories will last a long time. I met some wonderfully talent artists, viewed “up to the minute” cosmetics and trends, and can’t wait to let you know all about them!

Here are some pictures of the show I believe you’ll enjoy:
