This year’s Makeup Show was epic! There were a lot of brand new companies, as well as more established companies launching their pro lines.  This time, I was most interested in the education part of the show.  There were some fantastic makeup artists in attendance giving of their knowledge and experiences.  There was a lot to learn but the one thing that I walked away with was,

“Don’t give up on yourself!” – Ashunta Sheriff

And this was the premiere of the “Icon Gallery”.  An exhibit celebrating the pioneers and icons of makeup artistry.  This year, Kevyn Aucoin was honoured.  He is one of my early personal favourites and was the best at that time!

Check out some of the amazing stuff!

She has been rocking the heavy, defined, black liner with thick, dense lashes on magazine covers and other ads.

Anyway, here she has pointed liner, peachy-bronzey eyeshadow, peach lips, full brows and full lashes.
