The Makeup Show

If you love beauty, color and creativity then The Makeup Show Chicago 2012 was the place to be! Back in the Windy City for the second year in a row, The Makeup Show Chicago (held on June 17-18 at Venue One) brought together beauty professionals to network and savor the newest trends in makeup, view the hottest makeup products and get inspired by leading artists and educators on the art of beauty. The next stops for the show, which was also held in Los Angeles and New York earlier in the year: Berlin (9/22-23) and Orlando (11/4-5). Sophisticate’s Black Hair toured the event and ran into some of our fave beauty pros along the way…

The newest hues in beauty were on display…

Hot color worn in unexpected ways is a big beauty trend!
