The Makeup Show Chicago proved to be an event not worth missing! From the wonderful vendors and knowledgable educators to the massive network of eager makeup artists, it was a one stop shop for all things cosmetic. On Day one I decided to set my focus on education and picked up a few items that needed to be replaced. Most of those items were skin care items, cosmetic cleansers, brushes, organizational supplies and sponges.
I picked up some Cinema Secrets brush cleaner, So clean spray brush cleaner, London brush cleaner, Beauty blender cleanser and additional beauty blenders. Can you tell I love to clean brushes! lol on my list of wants I ended up picking up a few cosmetic products to test out including a neutral eye shadow palette I've been eyeballing for a while now. I'll be sure to update you guys with reviews on everything!

|Kathy Aragon teaching (perfecting the canvas class)|
I took a hands-on workshop with Kathy Aragon called perfecting the canvas. In it she discussed the steps she takes to achieve the perfect glow and what products she couldn't live without. I was happy to know we love some of the same things! Face Atelier being one of them! Her application was very clean and detailed leaving the skin looking very supple and natural. She also spoke of the importance of knowing what base your skin care and makeup products are. For me this answers why some products separate and don't work well together. Remember water and oil don't mix. :-))
