Miami, FL, February 19, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Metropolitan Events and Production and The Powder Group, producers of The Makeup Show, are excited to announce the premiere of The Makeup Show Miami, February 24th & 25th, 9:30am-5:30pm daily, at The Miami Beach Convention Center, located at 1901 Convention Center Dr., Miami Beach, FL. As a special presentation, The Makeup Show and On Makeup Magazine will sponsor a special press only breakfast presentation and preview of The Makeup Show Miami “Look” created by Lead Artist, James Vincent for The Makeup Show Miami, on Monday, February 25, 2008, beginning promptly at 9:00am. This is a closed event. For members of the press who wish to attend for coverage, contact STATE Public Relations, Kristina Ratliff or Ryan Urcia at PH 646.714.2520 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Inspired by Cuban Café Culture, the “look” for The Makeup Show Miami captures the essence of South Beach with glowing skin, dramatic eyes, and sun-kissed hues of sunset golden brown, orange, teal and coral. During the breakfast presentation members of the press will have the opportunity the experience the “look” first hand as demonstrated by James and receive exclusive products as a gift before joining the rest of the artist population at The Makeup Show Miami.
James starts the look with a bronze base of Solar Glow by Temptu New York applied with adesign’s Perfect Face Shader brush to smooth the liquid bronzer seamlessly into the skin to create a glow from within. For the eyes, the soul of South Beach is expressed through the suntan metallics of Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics’ Miami Miami Loose Color Concentrate and Face Atelier’s Ultra Bronzer in Cognac. Onyx and Indigo Eye Accent Pencils by Pencil Me In add just the right amount of sensuality, and a quick smudge of the pencil along the lash line and inner rim gives a sophisticated smolder to the look. For a final touch for the eyes, James adds Three Custom Color’s Peacock Eye Shadow at the inner corner of the eye and along the lash line using Crown Brush’s unique Small Chisel Brush. For the lip and cheek color, James worked with Three Custom Color to create Poppy Lip and Cheek Stain, the perfect new coral, which he used on both the apple of the cheek and as the lip color. To complete the look, a touch of Face Atelier’s Ultra Bronzer in Cognac was added at the top of the cheekbone, and a combination of Diva’s Peach and Bling Diva Glosses from Big Girl Cosmetics were layered on the lip.
An intimate show with a real sense of community and artistic energy, The Makeup Show Miami will bring a pro-driven legion of beauty and fashion professionals to the shores of South Beach. From editorial forces to mass-market phenomenon, insider-only tips will be traded between the best in the business over this two-day intensive event. The Makeup Show Miami will examine cosmetic applications of technique and style, featured in hands-on workshops, seminars and keynote presentations. The Makeup Show Miami also celebrates Latin influence and will include bi-lingual events.
In 2006, the event producers officially launched The Makeup Show in New York City, the epicenter of the glamour industry, and was the first New York City forum designed exclusively for professionals in the artistry of makeup and beauty. It has succeeded as an unparalleled event, casting divas from the worlds of fashion & beauty, special effects, film & television, theater, and product development by bringing together beauty professionals, industry educators, retailers, product companies and manufacturers. More than 60 top brands from all shades of artistry display latest products and looks in a boutique setting for two days of education, inspiration and community building.
The Makeup Show has a built-in educational program, hosting more than 40 seminars, workshops and lectures by some of the top makeup artists in the fashion & entertainment industry. Classes range from Editorial Beauty and Airbrush Basics to the Perfect Bride and Makeup for Women of Color, to name a few. The Makeup Show Miami will feature a cast of presenters including Billy B, Leslie Lopez, Myles O’Reilly, Marietta Carter Narcisse, Eve Pearl, Leslie Christin, Orlando Santiago, Michael DeVellis, James Vincent, and Johnny Lavoy.
