The Artist Summit in Chicago
The Artist Summit was here last week end, the first time they have come to Chicago. The Artist Summit will bring together celebrity artists from beauty, fashion, film and television, top pro-beauty brands and educators with pro makeup artists, hairstylists, business owners and students from across the globe for three days of education, community building and networking. The events are open to pros from any are of the makeup and beauty industries.
I went on Saturday for the Make up 101 Class and 8 hour extensive class on all things for the make up artist to know. The class was give by Daven Mayeda, and outstanding(and awfully cute) make up artist. We learned things that a make up artist needs to know, and some techniques for applying make up. The fun was we got to try out these techniques on a member of the group, we had partners to experiment on. He told us his secrets that he uses in his work.
While we were practing out techniques, Eugenia Weston of Senna Cosmetics came into the class and was walking around looking at our work. Of course I immediatley recognized her and started talking to her. I was so awe struck LOL!!!
This was day one of the summit, will do another post about the class on day 2 with Kevin James Bennett.
