I'm just getting back from a weekend with the Powder Group, and I have to let you know about this wonderful team! The Powder Group produces the best Classes, Seminars, Summits, and just about anything makeup, from the The Makeup Show, to The American Beauty Tour, Evolution and The Artist Summit.

The Powder Group was founded by the genius, Michael DeVellis, a 14 year veteran of the makeup artist industry. Based in New York he made the Powder Group, which is made up of a collective of beyond talented Makeup Artist and beauty phenoms that spans the makeup artist industry and the globe. The artists and presenters are working experts from the areas of film, television, theater, fashion and editorial. The seminars, lectures, workshops and special events cover every area of makeup artistry.

& INTRODUCING THE SUMMIT SHOP – A FREE TO ATTEND NEW PRO-RETAIL
EXPERIENCE

Besides spending way too much on brushes, makeup, and everything but the billboards HA!, I found the Artist Summit, a total asset to the Artist Community. Since when did some of the world's greatest makeup artist want to share and show little ol' me ;-), and other Artist, whether inexperienced or Pros, great information about the Industry.
When I first started makeup I was hoping someone would share their tips, tricks of the trade, and how to's. But little did I know, not too many were willing to share their knowledge. So, when I discovered the Powder Group, and attended my first seminar, I couldn't believe that such a group would exist to teach Artist of all levels, what they know, how they did it, and how to get there. Since when?! Just watching, and hearing their passion pour out as much as the foundation on their palette, was unbelievable.
I will always support the Powder Group, because what they give to the artist community is invaluable. The boat load of expertise, and knowledge from the Artist such as Billy B., James Vincent, Eve Pearl, Kevin J. Bennett, and totally the 'man' Michael DeVellis to name a few, is priceless!

The amazing, multi Emmy Award winner, Kevin-James Bennett in action! He is also, U.S Director of Artistry and Development at Makeup Forever. Kevin's energy made me want to run a marathon! lol

The amazing and (hair cut twin) Viktorija Bowers. It was so great to meet Vik. Putting a face behind her amazing work, and to also know that she is also so down to earth.


Last but not least, Eve Pearl. Eve is five-time Emmy Award winner, and celebrity makeup artist. She’s the Key makeup artist and frequent on-air guest for The View, with Barbara Walters, Meredith Vieira, Star Jones and Joy Behar as well as the Key on Who Wants to be a Millionaire.
