Beauty Trends & Beautiful People

Celebrity makeup artist Danessa Myricks was the talent behind this stunning image representing The Makeup Show Chicago.

A trade show dedicated to the art of makeup and the beauty pros creating the looks? We are so there! The Makeup Show Chicago returned to the Windy City for two days at the Revel Fulton Market space. The event showcased the latest beauty products and techniques to inspire professional makeup artists. New to the show is a Town Hall, featuring top makeup pros merging education and artistry as it applies to the industry today. On the show floor, a “Play Area” allowed attendees to swatch, feel and try the new products at their leisure (without having to wait in line at the exhibitors’ booths to test out the items). “Makeup is a connection and goes beyond just painting someone’s face,” noted The Makeup Show’s Director of Artistry and Education James Vincent during yesterday’s press briefing. And to support that idea, The Makeup Show Chicago partnered with local women’s shelter Deborah’s Place to raffle off a treasure trove of makeup product goodies…now that’s a beautiful thing. Sophisticate’s Black Hair took in the scene at The Makeup Show Chicago to check out what’s trending. Take a look…
