We were pretty excited to hear The Makeup Show’s Directory of Artistry, James Vincent’s favorite products and exhibitors as he took us around the booths (most of them were still setting up) and talked about some great keynote speakers who will be present over the next two days.

Some of the buzz worthy names who will be speaking include: Dany Sanz, Makeup For Ever Artist and Founder (a rare appearance); Gordon Espinet of MAC Cosmetics, Eve Pearl from her eponymous line of cosmetics and Linda Mason among many others.
