United Makeup Artists Expo The UKs Professional Makeup Artist Trade Show That Listens

About the UMAe Show

Show information
At United Makeup Artists Expo it is our ethos to put on the best show possible, to support professional and aspiring makeup artists & industry hairdressers/barbers, to give them the opportunity to meet and interact with the best of the business, to learn, from the Masters, the latest techniques and products available to pursue their careers; at the same time opening up the experience to international makeup artists.

Our artists do not just speak on stage but are thoroughly engaged on the show floor over the two day event, sharing their experiences interspersed with exclusive tips and hilarious anecdotes on crises averted during true life situations

We are not only a Professional Makeup Artist show, we are a family committed to the industry and supported and attended by some of the best and biggest Makeup Stars in the business e.g. Lois Burwell, Greg Cannom, Wally Sneiderman, Chris Tucker, Kenny Myers, Mark Coulier, Robin Mathews, Neill Gorton, Sian Richards, Kristyan Mallett , Stuart Bray, John Woodbridge, Cher Webb, Mike Smithson, Charles Porlier, Sharon Dowsett and the list goes on.

UMAe is also known for the great networking opportunities afforded for both our exhibitors and our delegates. We are committed to providing a strong focus for education and we encourage all exhibitors to contribute to interactive show floor demonstrations and timed seminars, which are an integral part of the show and which allow opportunities for high quality own brand promotion at no extra cost. We are keen for visiting professional makeup artists to express opinions or float ideas on how they see the industry progressing and in doing so, help formulate the best of the industry positives for future growth.

New and seasoned veterans alike are able to learn from the Masters the latest techniques and products available to pursue/continue their careers. Working closely with our exhibiting partners and the professionals, UMAe encourages and takes onboard feedback and discussions. In acting together and sharing in the development of the show, we are committed to continually evolve, incorporating the latest innovations, techniques and ideas. We strive to give you what you want.
