Beauty News: Makeup Junkie Interviews Celebrity Makeup Artist Michael DeVellis at CMS!

As most of you know the Canadian Makeup Show is coming up this November 10 and 11 at Kool Haus! Exciting! What's even more exciting is that I will have a chance to have a one-on-one interview with The Powder Group founder himself Michael DeVellis!! We've been emailing each other back and forth for months now that I feel like I kind of know him! If you're not familiar with his fabulousness then shame on you! He is not only the founder of The Powder Group but also The Makeup Show and the soon to launch On Makeup Magazine! As the former Executive Director of Artist Relations at M.A.C. Cosmetics and 14 years in the industry I think he knows a thing or two about being successful makeup artist. For an industry that can be harsh at times, he's created a makeup artist community where artists can connect with each other and learn a few things from one another. But TPG isn't just for makeup artists. TPG concept: they want to be your resource for everything makeup. Through Michael's roster of talented makeup artists and some of the biggest names in the industry (Billy B.!), he's created seminars and workshops covering everything from technique to business. I think it's fantastic that he cares so much about the art and the people behind it.

Michael will be speaking at 12 pm November 10 in the seminar room about The Portfolio and Marketing Workshop. This is a wonderful seminar for those starting out in the makeup industry or needing a refresher. If you have any questions you would like me to ask him, please leave me a comment for consideration! I'm sure he'd love to hear from the readers. As excited as I am, I'm also VERY nervous but hopefully my interviews with Eddie Maleterre and Eric Del Monaco have prepared me enough! Fingers crossed! Stay tuned for the interview and for coverage of CMS!

Hope to meet you this weekend at the CMS. I am coming down there from Ottawa for the whole weekend and I can't wait. I haven't been to a makeup show since April in Montreal when I went to Color Mundo which was great. I'll be looking for you!!
