Atlanta Makeup Meetup: Editorial Beauty Brush Off Competition!

Hi Bellas,

I'm so excited about the next Atlanta Makeup Meetup.  I was so inspired to really put on more of these meetups after speaking to so many of you at the Atlanta Makeup Show Pop Up.  I really want to encourage the Atlanta Market to collaborate and come together so that we can grow in our crafts and boost up Atlanta.

One of the topics I teach at my Pro Certification Course at Industry Makeup Academy is how to pull off an Editorial Beauty look in 20 minutes.  I think it's really important to be able to pull off a complete makeup look quickly, and also to understand that difference between everyday makeup, beauty makeup, and editorial makeup.  This is a great opportunity for artists to come together and practice and offer advice in an encouraging atmosphere.

The event is free!  Feel free to bring a friend or a model or we'll be making each other over for the event.  There will be two rounds and I'll choose a winner from each round to win a great makeup prize!

Here are the details:
Saturday, July 30th, 1pm-3pm
Industry Makeup Academy at Strongbox Studios, 1040 West Marietta Street, Atlanta, GA
Park in the front by the Pirate Flag or down the hill in the back
*Bring your makeup kit, wear a clean face to do makeup on, or bring a model

Can't wait to see you all there!
