Of course I’m going to The Makeup Show Chicago! We look forward to this every year, and while we didn’t make TMS in New York, it’s OK, because the Chicago show is going to be amazing. It’s the second year in the Windy City, and the list of exhibitors keeps on growing. It kicks off on Sunday, June 17 (Father’s Day, actually) and continues through Monday, June 18.
I’ll be in on the show floor Sunday, and can’t wait to see all of the brilliant artistry in action. Here are a few other things on my agenda:
1) NARS Pop-Up Shop. Obvi, right? I was so excited to hear that my fav brand is bringing its 413 Blkr Pop-Up to the show floor — the shop is in the actual boutique’s signature black, white and ‘Jungle Red’ décor!
2) Artist Brushes. TMS is all about artists, and The Makeup Show’s Artists, led by James Vincent (who has worked with countless celebs, including Lady Gaga), are selling a limited edition brush line exclusively at the show. The brushes are personalized with the artist’s signature and includes their must-have tools. I love learning from the best, so can’t wait to see!
3) Embryolisse. Somehow I was unable to track down any Embryolisse in the 20 pharmacies I stopped in while in Paris last fall. What gives? At least I know they’ll be at TMS!
4) Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics. Can’t wait to see the newly packaged Lip Tars and pick up a tube of the raved about Tinted Moisturizer. I missed out on it last year, and I’ve been kicking myself since.
Also, for those coming to town, it’s also the Taste of Randolph (yum). Randolph is “restaurant row” so not only will you be beautified, you will also be well-fed. Can’t wait! If anyone reading is going, let us know. Would love to say hello on Sunday!
