The Makeup Show Dallas is another event I never got a chance to write about last year, so I’m also including it in my “Way Back When Series”.
The Makeup Show added Dallas, Texas to it’s schedule for 2014. It was a great decision because the show was a major success! I was disappointed that they chose Dallas over Houston but I was still glad it was in Texas.
I was one of the Ambassadors chosen to promote the new location. The event was held Saturday September 27-Sunday September 28 at the Hyatt Regency Dallas. It was one of the biggest Inaugural Makeup Shows to date!
The Makeup Show is the best trade show for Professional Makeup Artists. Here are 6 reasons why.
- Build up/Replenish their makeup kits with professional quality products at reduced prices.
- Educational classes
- Keynote speakerstwhile
- Hands-on Workshops
- Opportunities to apply for Pro Discounts
I actually got there a day earlier to help set up the AJ Crimson section of the Frends Beauty Booth. Here are some of the “Behind the Scenes” pics from Friday.
I was pleased to be given another opportunity to work with Celebrity Makeup Artist AJ Crimson. I always have such an incredible time working with him and I love getting the chance to interact with other makeup artists to show them how amazing AJ’s products are.
AJ does a fantastic job of explaining how to use his foundations and BB +D cremes while doing makeup demos. He worked with lots of people during The Makeup Show Dallas. Our booth stayed busy the entire time.

Yay! I got to see Crystal Powder, makeup artist and owner of the Paw Palette. She’s so sweet! I met her for the first time at IMATS LA in 2012 and I look forward to seeing her at all of the makeup trade shows I attend.
In the above picture, Yackie, who works with Crystal, is on the left and Crystal is on the right. I’m showing off my new Paw Palette that I used while working with AJ to match fans with foundation and BB Creme. If you’re a professional makeup artist, you’ll love using the paw palette. It’s so convenient and easy to use. Crystal hand makes all of them and has a wide variety of designs.

It’s always a pleasure to see one of my favorite You Tube Beauty Gurus of all times; Elessa Jade of Pursebuzz!! She provides great makeup pointers, tips, and reviews. She also sales accessories. If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll notice the rhinestone lipstick necklace I wear a lot. I purchased it from Elessa at The Makeup Show Orlando in 2012. She has great items and is very friendly.

One of my biggest highlights of TMS Dallas was meeting the legendary Ve Neil!!!
Can you tell how happy I was?
