Last week was a whirlwind of events….

My week started off with the Makeup Show here in Chicago!!

It was such a treat to be in the house with so many makeup pro’s and an even bigger treat to have the Makeup Show in Chicago for the 1st time!

Bloggers were treated to an up close an personal preview of the show with makeup genius James Vincent!

I was soo excited to meet another makeup genius Danessa Myricks

I look a mess but it's the only pic I have with Danessa...

With speakers such as Reggie Wells, Sam Fine, Joanna Schlip, Jinny, Johnny Lavoy, Crystal Wright and Michael DeVellis and sponsors such as Make Up For Ever, Inglot, Stila, Crown Brush, Temptu, Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics, Yves Saint Laurent, Makeup First Academy, Kevyn Aucoin, Embryolisse, Glamcor, Iredale Mineral, Senna Cosmetics, Kett Cosmetics & more makeup pros in the Midwest were in for a treat!!

While there I discovered Eye Kandy Cosmetics! You know I love things that sparkle so I can’t wait to play with my kit!!
