The Makeup Show & The Secrets

The Makeup Show Chicago, Dallas, Orlando & Europe  is approaching soon! I am in no way an endorser for +TheMakeupShow which means I am getting no perks neither am I getting paid to say any of this. I'm a makeup artist first and a beauty blogger and my duty as a Beauty Blogger is to share. And I'm only sharing the best of the best! OKAY!

So as you know or may not know The Makeup Show Chicago is approaching very soon.

Bridgeport Art Center

Some things you need to know that you probably don't know:

  • FIRST to purchase the tickets to any of the shows you must go to the website:
  •  All tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable. (If you purchase your tickets and decide that you can't go try reselling them at a discounted price. I know #PLENTY that would purchase or #PayItForward and give back to the industry by having a giveaway.)

One Day - $45.00
Two Days - $60.00
  • Student Ticket Rates – 10 % discount of door price or online advance price
    Group Tickets
    Group Rate available for groups of 15 or more. For more information email
  • For ALL ADVANCE ticket holders: Be sure to print out your confirmation to be scanned at the show for entry. This is CRUCIAL!

Now let's get to the KNITTY GRITTY!!! *The Secret*
One thing that's important to know that a newbie MAY not know is the ticket is only to get you in the door and you'll be able to be a part of all the action on the floor. BUT since the Gold in in the "EDUCATION" and that's what I'm promoting, you must know to be a part of the educational classes  "hands-on workshops" *here is the secret* they are an additional fee **GASPS** I know you're like #WTH but Wait a minute! Before you run out of here let me tell you more! The worskshops "allow a limited number of dedicated artists to be a part of intense learning with some of the largest names in our industry in an intimate setting. Each workshop is designed to allow attending artists to listen and learn through demonstration, discussion, coaching and critique via face to face attention from icons and celebrity artists allowing you to advance your artistry and career." These workshops are offered during show hours as well as night sessions. Although you have to pay an additional fee know that you are getting these classes at a discounted price. Are you OKAY now?! OH and remember you're investing in yourself *smiles* 

I have mooooore!

And there are Shuttle Transfer Services if you're going to Chicago: (For more info click HERE) (How Convenient for those who prefer not driving)

Ok here is the part I'm sure you all will love! VENDORS!!! #TheMakeupShow caters to the professional Beauty world meaning it's PRO-only attendees to you annually which makes it different from any other show that I know of. They have the most diverse pro-driven brands, services & educators top products in the Industry at your finger tips for a huge discounted price that you will only get at The Makeup Show. For more info on the (Exhibitors list check out the website under the tab "EXHIBITORS")

I think the greatest part of it all is the fact you are able to network and build connections! That's the part I love the most. I would suggest that you bring a few things with you that are CRUCIAL to your brand! 

  • Business Cards
  • Tablet or Note pad to take notes.
  • It doesn't hurt to bring your portfolio just to be prepared (but don't go shoving it in peoples faces)
  • Bring yourself and that wonderful Presence!!!
  • I would also suggest that you go ahead and purchase a domain name for your brand. INVEST in yourself. Even if it's not up and ready at least you're taking some initiative over your life. But I would suggest having at lease a landing page with 1 strong photo, your name & strong BIO and a way to contact you. It doesn't have to be extravagant. Keep it clean and simple.  Since we're on the talk of branding also keep in mind you want to make a lasting impression and want to be remembered keep your domain name "BRAND NAME" simple! Because I want people to remember "ME" my website is my name . You can't forget it. And if you have any social media sites geared towards what you do, brand it under the same name. Please no names like "RAGDollBeauty" Remember names are important. And let me tell you, when I think of the word "Rag" & "Doll" they just don't mix to me and I will be confused on what I will be getting as a service. #IJS.

    WELP guys that's all I have for today! Until next time Peace Love & #FaithPixiDust!
