Next weekend (May 7th & 8th) I will be attending The Makeup Show Chicago with my friend Carleen of Beauty & Fashion Tech.  This will be my first beauty trade show and I am super excited to go!  Not only will I be able shop, but I will be meeting up with a lot of my blogging friends at the Blogger Preview Night that so far I have only met through the interwebz!  If any of you are going, please let me know!

I’ve already started a list of things I NEED (Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentrè, Nars Olympia and Vera Mona Color Switch, just to name a few).  Here are some of the brands that I plan on checking out – check out the full list of brands here.

Don't miss their booth to pick up this popular product that are sure to sell out! ‘Tarred’ Lip Balm veils the lips with sheer black, giving subtle definition, while ‘Feathered’ Lip Balm creates a gesso-like blank canvas, allowing other lip products to read more true to color.

Also happening at KEVYN AUCOIN –buy the full range of Sensual Skin Enhancers and receive 50% off the sale, rather than 40%!
