We wholeheartedly suggest you make a
booty beauty call this weekend. For the first time ever, The Makeup Show, the largest traveling professional-only event, is coming to town—and you don't even have to be good at doing cat-eyes or pouty lips to attend. What you should be good at, however, is shopping top beauty products at exclusive discounts, and getting tips and tricks from the pros.
In celebration of its 10th birthday, The Makeup Show's doors are open to all (hooray!). The Hyatt Regency (5 Embarcadero Center) is hosting on August 29th from 11am to 7pm and August 30th from 10am to 5pm. Tickets, which can be purchased here, are $28 for one day or $44 for both days.
Just a few of the 40-plus brands you'll be able to buy for 20 percent to 40 percent off include: MAKE UP FOREVER, Anastasia Beverly Hills, NARS, MAC, Beautylish, MUSE Beauty and Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics.
Meet and Greets with local beauty babes are also part of the mix. Here are a few highlights:
- August 29th: 1pm to 3pm: Cassandra Bankson
- August 29th: 3pm to 5pm: Cora Alvillar of Vintageortacky
- August 30th: 1pm to 3pm: Makeupby_ev21
We leave you with our very own beauty tip: Purge your makeup stash before you go. (Lipstick hoarders, we're talking to you.)
