Before the 2017 Dallas edition of The Makeup Show, their Director of Artistry & Education, James Vincent, joined me on the Pop Goes the City podcast to talk about fall beauty trends, The Makeup Show, and how The Makeup Show is supporting makeup artists affected by Hurricane Harvey. If you haven’t listened to the show, you can do that below.

Listen to the show now:

In a nutshell, James had me nearly in tears. During our conversation it became clear to me that the makeup artists in the Houston area were truly in need of specialized support efforts to help them restart their businesses.

As a result, The Makeup Show has chosen to move its Dallas show to Houston in 2019, in order to support the up-and-coming makeup hub after the Hurricane Harvey destruction.

I must say that I was shocked by this decision, and that am sad to see this amazing show move from our metroplex. But I completely support this!

“The Makeup Show chose to move from Dallas to Houston not only because of the city’s culture, creativity, character, and overwhelming request from local artists, but to help the city from the still prevalent aftermath of Hurricane Harvey,” said Shelly Taggar, Owner of The Makeup Show, in a public statement.

Houston show highlights include:

● Keynotes: A MUST SEE! Keynotes travel in from around the world and are essential for any level artist to learn new tips, techniques and information that will set them apart and advance their careers. Highlighting diverse topics including trends, inspiration, and advice.

● Workshops: LEARN SKILLS FROM THE BEST! Workshops will create hands-on experiences in an intimate setting, perfect for artists that want to take their skills to the next level.

● 60 Featured Brands: OFFERING EXCLUSIVE SHOW DISCOUNTS! Attendees will have the opportunity to meet with brands, shop at great pro-discounts from some of the top brands in the industry and discover new beauty products to add to their kit.


The Makeup Show Houston will be held on Saturday, March 23, 2019 from 9am to 5pm and on Sunday, March 24, 2019 from 9am to 5pm at the Hilton Houston Post Oak by the Galleria, 2001 Post Oak Blvd, Houston, TX 77056. For additional information and updated announcements, please visit
