Last October, we dished that the Essence Festival was going big and going global for …
Beauty Live, Galleria Dallas‘ two-day electrifying celebration commemorating the cosmetics industry, is set for an epic return April 9 – 10, and this is a fete you’ll definitely want to “glo up” for. Expert panels, beauty tips and tricks, must-see demos, in-store giveaways, and more head up the eighth annual Beauty Live, with a list of celebrity appearances that will literally make you blush (pun intended).
The fun all starts on the main stage where guests are invited to learn from leading beauty experts as they discuss top tricks, techniques, and trends from the big names in cosmetics. If names such as Steve Kemble (America’s Sassiest Lifestyle Guru / KVIL personality) or Bravo TV’s Real Housewives of Dallas LeeAnne Locken and Tiffany Hendra get you going, then there’s not one, but three reasons already you should attend Beauty Live.
Another quick glimpse of the star-studded schedule showcases appearances by Inspire N Style’s own Editor in Chief, Leah Frazier; Miracles from Heaven author, Christy Beam; National Make Up Artist for Christian Dior, Erik Martinez; iconic Dallas model and fashion show producer extraordinaire, Jan Strimple; reality TV guru and leading Dallas blogger, Cynthia Smoot; and of course, a special beauty panel and Beauty Live on Ice grand finale show featuring famed Olympian Johnny Weir (pictured left).
Now that’s worth getting all glammed up for!
Closing out the beauty-inspired weekend will be a free Beauty Live on Ice performance on April 10th at 4:00 p.m. by three-time U.S. Champion and 2016 Olympian Johnny Weir. The 20-minute free show will feature an array of professional skaters as well as the Galleria Dallas Skating School Synchronized Team.
