About to enter The Makeup Show!

Waiting for James Vincent to grace the stage.

Quick close-up of my #ootd details.

Professional Makeup Artist, James Vincent delivered an inspiring and motivating speech on how the makeup industry keeps pushing forward with innovation and dedication to the art and about how having love and acceptance for everyone who comes into the industry gives the world that light of hope regardless of what all chaos has become upon us.

I was lucky enough to be able to bring my SIL with me to TMS! She was my photographer the entire weekend!

Couldn't leave The Makeup Show without taking a selfie at the selfie station equipped with lighting by Glamcor!

Overall, I enjoyed the time I spent at The Makeup Show this year very much! With my pregnancy, I got worn out more easily this year so I took it easy as much as I could and wouldn't have even survived the time I spent at TMS without the help of my SIL and great friend, Julie! (Love you both! xo)


  1. Looked like a great turn out! Love your outfit and you girls looks so pretty. Don't you just want to take that Glamcor mirror home? I'd take any of theirs it has such great lighting!

  2. Thank you love! Oh my goodness, YES I wish I could have taken a Glamcor light set home with me! Their lighting is amazing!

  3. You look so cute! I totally wish I would have been able to attend. Looks like you and your sis-in-law had so much fun.
