Chicago Events. The Makeup Show Hits the Windy City!

Back for the round two, The Makeup Show Chicago 2012 made it’s appearance in the Second City this past Sunday and Monday. On June 17th and 18th, many major cosmetics brands like MAC PRO, Make Up For Ever, Smashbox, Merhon Inc., Temptu PRO and Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics were on location to help those pick out the perfect shade or just give a few professional tips and tricks.

Many brands even introduced limited edition brush sets and makeup colors exclusively at The Makeup Show this year! And for the first time anywhere, NARS made its first makeup trade show appearance, selling many of their major color staples (and my favorite) like “Super Orgasm”.

Venue One in Chicago’s up-and-coming West Loop held some of the world’s best makeup artists for the second year in a row. Between master makeup classes, major discounts on brands and every kind of makeup you could even dream you might want, this was the place to be this weekend. Can’t wait until next year!
