Beauty Overload: The Makeup Show Chicago 2014

After dreaming about it for years I finally got the chance to go to The Makeup Show in Chicago this past weekend. It was my first time and I had a blast! It was like walking into Sephora on steroids and I got to experience it with some Chicago friends that I haven’t seen in a while! 
Celebrity Makeup Artist, Sebastien Tardif, demoing his product, Veil Complexion Fix, on Taylor.  

Celebrity Makeup Artist, AJ Crimson, demoing his products while at Frend’s Beauty booth.
AJ Crimson touched my face yall!! I died, lived, and died again! He was so much fun. 
There were lots of amazing artists at all of the booths showing gorgeous dramatic looks and intricate body painting. 
James Vincent introducing keynote speaker Ashunta Sheriff .
Ashunta Sheriff gave an amazing keynote, sharing about her beginning as a makeup artist and the many years she worked with celebs including Diddy and Alicia Keys. 
Ashunta & I after my face was beat with her product “Perfect Blend”. Y’all know I bought it and I can’t wait to play with it some more! 
Maya, Taylor, Alicia & I
My first TMS Haul tossed all over my messy bed as soon as I got home. 
Overall the show was wonderful, everyone I encountered was beautiful and friendly. I wish I had got to see more of the demos and speakers but I’m already planning to go back next year!
