Angelenos, are you in the mood for makeup? If you are, you’re *so* in luck.
This weekend’s International Makeup Artist Trade Show (6/20-21) in Pasadena, California is the only show of its kind in the world. Thousands of makeup artists, manufacturers and makeup addicts will convene for the cosmetic world’s biggest brouhaha to discuss, display, discover and collect the best the makeup industry has to offer.
Want to hear how Hollywood made Benjamin’s button? — Attend Greg Cannom’s talk on Sunday at 3:30pm. He won this year’s Oscar for Achievement in Makeup for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.
Interested in Vulcan eyebrows and ears? — Take notes while members of the new Star Trek movie makeup team break things down Sunday morning at 10:30.
That’s not all!
Learn avant-garde makeup with Nolan Robert, winner of Lifetime TV’s Blush; compete for prizes in beauty student competitions; take a close look at beauty macro photography makeup; get answers to your questions about silicone; learn how to airbrush like a pro and SO MUCH MORE.
Advance tickets are available through today (6/18) at www.makeupartistshow.com. It’s $65 for both days or $35 for either. Tickets can also be purchased at the door on either day for an extra $5.
And the show’s 100% open to the public, meaning that you don’t have to be a makeup artist to attend (check out this video overview of the show).
The event’s being held at the Pasadena Convention Center, 300 E. Green St., Pasadena, CA.
I wish I could go!!!
