Over 3,500 beauty bloggers, makeup artists, beauty aficionados attended The Makeup Show Chicago this weekend. More than 75 beauty brands were at the event and top celebrity makeup artists made appearances. Held at the Bridgeport Art Center on June 9 and 10, The Makeup Show was the largest pro-driven beauty event in the Midwest. Beauty brands at the show included Make Up For Ever, Crown Brush, Temptu Pro, Nars, Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics, Inglot Cosmetics, and Stila.

I was lucky enough to attend the blogger preview on Saturday and hear the always fabulous James Vincent talk about his career. James has done makeup for television, print editorials, fashion week runways, and much more. He has many high-profile clients and even told a funny anecdote about doing Gisele’s makeup in her home.
