Highlights and Pictures from The Makeup Show Chicago

June 15th, 2011

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

Over the weekend, I attended The Makeup Show Chicago, the first ever in the Midwest. I had been looking foward to it for MONTHS and I am so glad I was not disappointed ☺ Read on to see some of my highlights!

Day 1 started with the Blogger Preview Event. I got to catch up with some of my fellow beauty bloggers and finally met the beautiful Elessa from PurseBuzz and Koren from EnKoreMakeup.

On Day 2, I finally got to check out the 50+ exhibits by all the top-notch makeup lines. I went TOTALLY crazy at Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics and ended up with their famous Lip Tars, Glitters, Nail Polish and the new Tint.

I also checked out some new brands, including Nurturing Force, whose Blot Out Offensive™ shine + oil control cream has won the hearts of many artists, along with Ruby Kisses, an uber cute line by Kiss Cosmetics and celebrity makeup artist Danessa Myricks (she’s such a doll!) In addition, I caught up with Liz from Yaby Cosmetics and was told to expect new palettes and a new eyeshadow formula based off my favorite pearl paints – can’t wait!

And of course there were lots and lots of makeup demos through out the day, including the awesome body painting by Make Up For Ever.

Finally, I wrapped up my day with a presentation by the awesome Sam Fine, whom I had interviewed in 2009. Sam was phenomenal and *so* inspiring! Not only did he give great, insightful answers to questions from the audience, he showed us how to nail his signature flawless complexion using cream products and a sponge. I also met the guru upclose afterwards and got my copy of his “The Basics of Beauty” DVD signed. Yay!

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

The MTV Movie Awards show usually has the most daring celebrity makeup and fashion of the entire awards show world. Celebrities often reveal more skin, wear bolder prints, or go all out with completely new looks because the younger, more fun awards show tries not to take itself too seriously. This is the night celebrity style can go wild.

Behind the Scenes of the "Pulp Fiction" Makeover on Hit TV Show "Community"

March 26th, 2011

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

When I was asked to visit the set of the NBC hit show “Community” for their “Pulp Fiction” episode, which aired last night, I jumped for makeover joy. Yeah I love the show and all (Joel McHale is the perfect hybrid of funny and smokin’ hot), but I was especially excited because I knew that makeup artist, Pamela Lljubo-Obrien, would go all out to transform the cast into Tarantino’s memorable characters.
