Professional beauty industry experts, The Powder Group are pleased to announce the launch of their newest artist-inspired, industry-focused program, The Artist Summit, as they continue their commitment to the bringing the pro beauty community together through education. The company, known for creating The Makeup Show, On Makeup Magazine and The American Beauty Tour – as well as previous versions of The Artist Summit in NYC, Chicago and Miami – are bringing this unique, and all-new, program to the shores of Cape Cod this fall, hosting the event in Provincetown, MA at the iconic, waterside Provincetown Inn.
“We wanted the location to truly reflect the spirit of artistry and allow our attendees to not only draw inspiration from the beautiful location of Provincetown, but create the energy of a retreat of sorts, where we encourage our participants to leave their day-to-day behind to allow for a true gathering of industry minds,” said Michael DeVellis, founder and Executive Director of The Powder Group.
James Vincent, Director of Artistry for the company adds “This is huge for our community. A non-retail driven, non-branded program that truly brings together the most inspired and driven pros in the field of makeup artistry and beauty – it will be a game changer for the artists who are going to join us as we focus on so many layers of their artistry, objectives and career.”
The Artist Summit will bring together makeup artists and beauty professionals from all areas of the industry – from salon, bridal and beauty, to fashion, film and television – for three days of education, inspiration, community building and networking. The event is open to makeup artists, salon and beauty professionals, cosmetics executives, business owners and beauty students from across the globe.
Featured presenters include some of the top inspirational voices and educators in the professional beauty industry including Linda Mason of The Art of Beauty, Michael Angelo of Wonderland Beauty Parlor, Sara Lucero of Stila Cosmetics, Michael Duenas of Hair Room Service and Victoria Stiles. These creative talents will be joined by business experts including Corissa St. Laurent of Constant Contact, Kate Leydon of Chicago’s Ruby Room, Crystal Wright of Crystal Wright Live, Chris McCarthy of Provincetown Art Association Museum, Marietta Carter-Narcisse and of course DeVellis and Vincent from The Powder Group.
