This is my third year going to The Makeup Show Los Angeles. You can check out my 2012 (Part 1 & Part 2), and 2013 (Part 1 & Part 2) posts. I've enjoyed it every year and it does not exclude this year. It was a blast! The first night Friday, February 28 was the Blogger Preview Event.

James Vincent introduced the products in the press bag. Not only that, he told us stories and even demo how to contour on a darker skin individual.

Then we headed straight to the gallery, and this is the first makeup artists icon showcase ever at The Makeup Show. I'm so proud they did the showcase in Los Angeles. Not only that, the showcase was dedicated to Kevyn Aucoin. He was the makeup artist that I grew up and admired. He did makeup on supermodels like Christy Turlington and Cindy Crawford, and celebrities like Janet Jackson and Madonna. Unfortunately, I did not take pictures of all the displays. It was a packed house and being a shorty, it wasn't easy to take pictures but here are the ones I did take.
Every year they have a competition and one of them is the face chart. This year is to re-interrupt looks done by Kevyn Aucoin. The pictures on the left is done by the Kevyn Aucoin and the right is the interrupt.
These were the four finalists and the winner was the bottom in the picture above.
This is a showcase of products he used.
Here's a collage of magazine covers and pictorial done by Kevyn Aucoin. You can click on the picture to see the original size.
Not only did they showcase his works, they even posted some of his personal things like this letter to his lover Eric Sakas.
Here's his original display of his products.
His books. I'm sure some of us own these books.
Makeup done on the models. If you look at the model on the far left, she's actually an interruption of Christy Turlington. If you look at the first pictures of the face chart competition, you will see one of Christy Turlington with the light, pastel blue eyeshadow.
To end this post, here's my press goodies. I will blog about these in the future posts.
