The Makeup Show Chicago


Hey ladies! I’m super excited to share my weekend with you so let’s jump right in! Saturday began with a trip to the chiropractor and ended with a bag full of goodies from The Makeup Show Chicago.  When I picked up my press pass I was jumping of joy on the inside because this event would’ve cost me 60 bucks to attend. So a big thank you goes out to Mischaela AKA Big City Blonde for getting me on the press list!

Just as I started to think the day couldn’t get better, I notice all of the brands were offering products at a discounted show price. I took full advantage of the opportunity, and stocked up on bold lippies for an awesome 40% off from NYX and Glamorous Chicks Cosmetics.

After I was all shopped out, I jumped at the chance to learn from legend, and beauty guru, Eugenia Weston AKA Genie! She’s a celebrity makeup artist, esthetician, and the developer of Senna Cosmetics which has been around since 1976.  She taught how to achieve the perfect natural looking brown in her session. I was blown away that even up close it appeared that hair had grown even though I watched her draw it on. Take a look at the before and after below. She’s so humble and was shocked when we formed a line for Q&A and selfies.20151107_154112

This dramatic before and after was achieved using the Brow Book and Brow Pro 40 brush.20151107_152229-120151107_151221-1

I just love connecting with other creatives,  and freelancers so I am extremely happy I bumped into Sandra Fancy Pants Gonzalez and Nancy Roman. Use the pink links to see what these lovely ladies are working on.

  1. How fab do you look in this outfit, the black and brown of your satchel coordinates perfectly with your leggings and boots and the bohemian spirit of your dress is punctuated by your hat! The event looks like it wasnt one to be missed as well, I love makeup get-togethers!
