If you are a permanent makeup artist and are not a member of The Society of Permanent Cosmetic Professionals (SPCP) then you are missing out on not only knowledge but the community of other men and women in the industry that you can count on for support. This year our SPCP Fall conference was held in the beautiful city of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and hosted by the completely remodeled Downtown Sonesta Hotel. The weekend was buzzing with the much anticipated hands on brow hair stroke class lead by Karen Betts and team from the United Kingdom. There were so many amazing lectures from Eyeliner procedures, Camouflage Case Studies to Social Media Marketing by yours truly. You never leave an SPCP conference without adding much needed knowledge to your portfolio.
Philadelphia is such a beautiful city from the history to the cool city vibe. I was very impressed with the newly renovated Sonesta Philadelphia Downtown, the second you walk in you are greeted with hip decor and friendly prompt service.
My room was spacious with city artwork, conveniently placed outlets for my cell phone and IPad (it’s about time they are next to the bed) and a fabulous city view. I loved the convenience of the shower gel, shampoo and conditioner right on the shower wall, now that’s a green hotel at it’s best.
I always bring my favorite candles when I travel, it’s makes my hotel room smell wonderful and feel more homey.
Saturday Night I wore DVF for the cocktail party.
Early Morning getting ready for the brow workshop
Karen Betts hands on brow workshop was incredible not to mention completely sold out. We spent the day drawing, partnering up, working on each other and learning new techniques for creating the perfect hair strokes with permanent makeup. Everyone brought their own machines to work on.
I loved helping all the attendee’s with my lecture on From Clueless To Confident: How to Market Yourself Through Social Media. I started off showing the artists how easy and fast it is to post by taking a picture of myself on the podium with everyone in the class behind me.
