The Makeup Show LA 2022

After a 4-year hiatus, The Makeup Show (TMS) 2022, returns to Los Angeles at The Hyatt Regency Long Beach Oct 1 – Oct 2. The Makeup Show formerly held at the California Market Center in downtown LA not only has a new location, but a renewed energy and is back better than ever with some of the most influential artists, experts, and brands the beauty industry has to offer.

When asked what attendees can expect from this year’s show Shelley Taggar, co-founder stated, “After 4-years we are finally back in California, and we can’t wait to be with the west coast beauty community with a new format of the show, one that feels safer and has more education than we ever had, and featuring some of the best brands for pro.”

Taggar’s vision when establishing TMS was to be a place where artists and beauty insiders could learn, explore new beauty brands, and network. Taggar and her talented team of professionals, artists, and educators have turned The Makeup Show into an international event that is always highly anticipated.

James Vincent, Director of Education & Artist Relations is responsible for developing all of the education at The Makeup Show. He is a strong proponent of advocating the importance of artists being educated and keeping up with their craft in an ever-evolving industry. Vincent is not only an educator but also a highly sought-after makeup artist with celebrity clients such as Joan Jett and many others. Vincent has worked with countless makeup brands as well as, artists and makeup aficionados.

As the nation’s largest professional beauty event, The Makeup Show provides an experience to not only educate but also meet the CEOs and executives behind the brands from new, established, indie, or prestige lines. A few of the much-anticipated brands to visit include:
