The Makeup Show 10th Anniversary

This year The Makeup Show is celebrating their 10th Anniversary!

It took me a few weeks to believe this was really true! More on my fears and insecurity here in this blog post on the site I use for my personal freelance business. 

I swear I didn’t believe it was true when I saw the email saying that I had won! Then they announced it on their blog here and their Instagram page and it started to feel a bit more real. I posted to the MMMUA Instagram feed (are you following there?) but just now got the confidence to share on my Emily Hudspeth blog and Instagram where there are so many more eyes to see it!


Thanks Sarah Kane Photography for this photo!

So I guess it is real! This is really happening! I am traveling to New York in a few weeks with my new baby daughter. I am both terrified and excited for what this adventure will bring!

Over the next few weeks, I will be preparing for the show. I am making my wish/shopping list and deciding which key note speakers can’t be missed and signing up for Focus sessions. In the past, I have been fortunate enough to attend the blogger previews and social media events and I am keeping my fingers crossed that I will be able to get a media pass this year. Then I can report back on more behind the scenes adventures!



I am so grateful for the opportunity to attend this amazing educational and inspirational event. Every year, I come back ready to grow into the next level of my business. This year is especially exciting, more to come on that!

Will you be attending the Makeup Show this year? In New York or any city? What are you most excited about? I would love to meet up with you at the show or the Gala event!

Leave me a comment and lets connect!
