The Makeup Show LA!!

I attended The Makeup Show Los Angeles on March 17th and it was such an amazing event!! I networked, met some of the industry's best makeup artists, and to be surrounded by makeup enthuisiasts such as myself was like a dream!!! I took a bunch of photos and I also recorded some great footage and advice from the amazing Crystal Wright. So without further ado, my recap!!!

So many things going on for both days!!

There was a life size Facebook Status Update poster on the wall for everyone to sign wihch was pretty cool!
You know I had to zero in on my lil post,lol!!

The Makeup Show had just got underway so it wasn't too crazy yet. And guess who I saw walking by the amazing and talented Makeup Artist Danessa Myricks, who is also Benefit Cosmetics Director of Product Innovation right here in the Bay Area!

I visited Crystal Wright 's booth in the Resource Area of the Makeup Show. Here is some footage of her talking to me and a few other people about her 3 Day "Packaging Your Portfolio" Workshop.  She shares a story of one of the students who took the class and its benefits. She kept it way too real and I loved it, love her!!!
All Makeup Artist's, Hair Stylists andFashion Stylists need her book to get the tools to take your career to the next level
