The Makeup Show Orlando 2017 is quickly approaching and my level of excitement builds each day. My blog partner and I have been going to The Makeup Show Orlando for the past three years and we enjoy it more each time. From the opportunity to interview amazing artist to the wealth of information received in the Keynote and Main floor seminars, there is something for everyone at The Makeup Show. This year is no different. With a large list of exhibitors such as; Kat Von D Beauty, Kevyn Aucoin, Glamorous Chicks Cosmetics, and Melanie Mills Hollywood, there is no limit to the amount of information and new products you will find at The Makeup Show Orlando.
This year’s event will take place in March on the 18th and 19th at the Hyatt Regency Orlando. The show will play host to an incredible roster of keynote speakers. Including my personal favorite James Vincent and Reggie Wells who graced the face of my favorite singer Beyonce. Yes, I’m fan girling and so will you when you find out what they will be teaching at the show.
