The Makeup Show targets professionals from all over the world but understands that each market is unique and works with each region’s industry individuality.

While the makeup industry remains competitive, brands are looking to leave their mark at shows like The Makeup Show. Top brands have supported the show from the very beginning including its core sponsors Make Up For Ever, Temptu Pro, Crown Brush, Alcone, as well as small start-ups that have grown with the show to become successful pro-brands. Unlike other shows, The Makeup Show is specifically tailored to professionals and students. The Makeup Show emphasizes creativity and education through extensive hands-on seminars and workshops led by key makeup artists such as Charlie Green, Joanna Schlip, Tegan Taylor, Louie Zakarian, Dany Sanz, Johnny Lavoy, Billy B., Kate Best, Sharon Gault, and many more. The brands and attendees benefit from the intensive one-on-one networking and career building environment the show creates.

The Makeup Show draws attendees working in or directly linked to the beauty industry from the worlds of fashion & beauty, film & television, theater, and product development. All attendees are professionals working as makeup artists, hairstylists, fashion stylists, estheticians, and cosmetologists, as well as salon and spa owners. Owners can build relationships with specific lines, products, and artists to bring into their salons and spas. Employees are often sent to the show to learn hands-on how to use the new products and techniques. Beauty students can also attend the show, allowing them to make connections within the industry.
