The MakeUp Show Chicago 2014 - Face Off Stars and Pati Dubroff Take Main Stage

The Makeup Show is coming back to town and I can't wait to go. I went last year and had a blast. I sat in on a few sessions, met some great folks, and of course picked up some really cool makeup/products.

If you're a makeup industry professional, this is an an event you don't want to miss. Over 75 beauty brands will be there including MAKE UP FOR EVER, Crown Brush, Temptu PRO, NARS and Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics. What's cool about this show is that many of the owners and creators of the brands are actually there in the booth.

And of course I have to mention the celebrity artists/keynote speakers which includes headliner Pati Dubroff (celebrity makeup artist to Gwyneth Paltrow, Jessica Biel, Drew Barrymore, and more). She'll take the stage on June 7th from 12:30-2 to share tips and techniques that have made her a successful celebrity makeup artist.

Also headlining will be Anthony Kosar and Nix Hererra who are known for their incredible body of work and appearances on SyFy's Face Off and Naked Vegas. They'll take the stage for the "Face Off Panel" on June 8th from 2:30-4.

 And here's a quick list of the other artists and speakers:

“Making it in Makeup” with Renny Vasquez on Saturday, June 7th from 10:30am to 12:00pm – Celebrity clients include Kelly Rowland, Gabrielle Union and Brandy and more. 

" The New Movement in Makeup” with Ashunta Sheriff on Sunday, June 8th from 12:30pm to 2pm– With over 16 years in the beauty industry, Ashunta has mastered thart of makeup and managed to change the game. 

"The Art of Application” with Ricky Wilson on Saturday, June 7th from 3pm to 4:30pm – Ricky has worked with John Galliano, Dior, and Betsey Johnson and more. 

“Making a Name in Makeup” with Lianne Farbes on Sunday, June 8th from 10:30am to 12pm – Lianne Farbes is the creator of the award-winning beauty blog The Makeup Girl Girl and has gone to make a name for herself as a social media strategist, beauty expert, brand consultant, and founder and principal of Digital Girl Media, LLC 

Sounds like a cool lineup. Right? Not to mention all of the opportunities to network with peers which is so important in any industry. Especially creative fields.  So if you're interested in going head on over to for more info on tickets.

Lastly, let me mention that although this is an industry only show, last year, non-industry individuals were allowed to come on the last day. I'm not sure if that will be the case this year but let's hope. Especially for those people who are super beauty enthusiasts.

The Makeup Show Chicago will be held on Saturday, June 7, 2014 from 9am to 6pm and on Sunday, June 8, 2014 from 9am to 5pm at Bridgeport Art Center, 1200 W. 35th Street, Chicago. Check for more info.
