2012 - What a year!

Last week marked our final show for 2012, in Orlando, and what a show it was. Orlando, the Sunshine State, is a great place, a great community with great artistry that lent to a great show.
Our week started in NYC with Superstorm Sandy coming in, putting a stop to all of our planning for Orlando, with our office closed and our phones down, so the makeup show team worked from one small apartment managing and trying to put it all together before the weekend. Due to our flights being canceled we had decided to drive to Orlando to make sure we got there in time and were able to put on a great show for you all. Seventeen hours later we arrived at The Peabody Hotel and we started our setup, making the show as best as we could, all while some of our brands weren’t able to get from the NY/NJ area to Orlando in time. 
We opened our doors Sunday to a great day, with some of the best brands and artists on the floor, Florida artists showed up, and gave their support to us like no others. It was great to see that all seminars and classes were full at all times with amazing artists trying to learn and get some new tips on techniques and products from the brands. Our show floor was packed by 10 a.m. with eager attendees and some of the great artists who call Orlando home or frequently work there, including Corey Castellano, Johnny Lavoy and Maurice Stein in our keynote area. The day couldn’t be any more perfect!
Monday started with AJ Crimson taking the keynote main stage, followed by Nick and Brian Wolfe and finally Michael DeVellis along with a show floor full of artists who couldn’t be any better than what we wished for.  We want to thank the artist community in Orlando who welcomed us and showed us their appreciation. I am truly thankful for the support.
What a year 2012 was. Starting with the LA show, which was our best LA show ever, to NY, our jewel, then Chicago and Berlin, both second year shows, and finishing with our newest show, Orlando.
This year marked our biggest year yet and we are so thankful to you all for attending and supporting our shows like you do every year, and helping us strive to be better, and welcoming this community like no other. Each show, year after year, gets so much support from our attendees, brands and sponsors, and we truly couldn’t have done this without thanking you all.
A big thank you to our sponsors, without them we couldn’t have grown so much. Make Up For Ever our diamond sponsor, Temptu PRO and Crown Brush our Platinum sponsors, and Inglot, Stila, Smashbox, Make-Up Designory, NARS, Alcone, Cosmix, The Powder Group, On Makeup Magazine and World Body Painting Festival, we are so thankful for the support you give us wherever we go. To all the brands that have been with us every year for the last 6 years, you guys are the cement of the show, and what makes it such a great event!
For 2013, we have an amazing year planned for you all. Marking our 5th Anniversary in LA, March 2nd and 3rd, we are happy to welcome Premier Products introducing their new area to the show, as well as more special effects brands and artists. Stay tuned for more exciting announcements for a show that is not to be missed. The NYC Show, which will be May 5th and 6th – in its 7th year, will have an amazing lineup of beauty and fashion artists and brands, and will continue to include our Career Fair.   
Chicago is June 9th and 10th in a new home! Stay tuned for the announcement of our new space. We are so happy to return to this great city and community.
The Makeup Show Europe will also mark some new changes. We love Berlin and will be back in future for sure, but we are glad to announce the show in 2012 will be held in London, in September. Don’t miss our news about this show, coming soon.
Finally, Orlando will be held in November 2013 for its second year, to be bigger and better.  Date TBD.
I want to thank all those people that make every day and every show possible for us.  A special thank you to those key artists that support us every year, and never say no, no matter what I ask of them – Johnny Lavoy, Maurice Stein, Michael DeVellis, Pati Dubroff, AJ Crimson, Eugenia Weston, and Billy B, thank you all so much for your continued support.
To conclude, I want to thank The Makeup Show Family, without them I would be lost, Jon Hennessey, Kathy Aragon, Danessa Myricks, Esterique Aidan, and Orlando Santiago, I love you all.
Thank you Sophia Fernandez, Eve Taylor, Merlo Faundez, LaQuanna Chong, Bethany Townes and finally to Amanda Wein and James Vincent, for working hard daily to make this a show to remember in each and every city.
We hope to see you all in 2013, and are looking forward to bringing you some amazing opportunities in the year to come.
Happy Holidays,
