A bit of history - I first learned of The Powder Group and the events they offer back in 2007 if I am not mistaken but definitely knew of them in 2008 as that was the first time I attended The Artist Summit. As a beginning artist that experience meant everything to me. Not many people were in attendance, at least not when I had arrived and I was able to take full advantage - imagine no line at the Crown Brush booth! I took maybe 3 classes that day and also a keynote with Michael DeVellis. I left fully motivated and ready to take on the world of makeup.

This year at The Makeup Show I met some amazing colleagues, got reacquainted with others, and just had the best time. I do not know what I expected but I did NOT expect to be affected in an emotional capacity, but I truly was and know that throughout this journey I have made lifelong friends.
I was just excited this year as I was walking through those doors for the first time three years ago. Just as hype about the new products, just as humbled to speak to those artists that I admire. The Makeup Show is a MUST attend event if you are even THINKING about trying your hand at makeup artistry. But dont take my word for it - see it for yourself by watching the vid below. I will be uploading two more videos that take you right into the heart of the show. So stay tuned!
