If you follow me on social media you have seen my posts about The Makeup Chicago in Chicago.
The show is this Saturday and Sunday November 12th and 13th, just a couple of days away. I love the show because there is a lot of education to take advantage of, the show has workshops, seminars, and keynote speakers. There are also a wide range of beauty brands that come and have some of their best products for sale. Last but definitely not least is the amount of networking that you can take part in, artists from surrounding cities and states come in to take part of this amazing show. They are also having the show in a bigger space this year, Revel Fulton Market, which adds to the excitement.
