The Powder Group invites you to be curious about your career.

Our concept is simple: To inspire your craft. To strengthen your career. To connect you to the global makeup artist community.

At The Powder Group we ask you to open your mind to new – sometimes unexpected – ways of experiencing the career of the professional makeup artist. We encourage you to develop a new set of skills, rethink techniques and take an unconventional, fresh and passionate approach to growing as an artist. We encourage a strong sense of community and present our events and programs in a relaxed, non-competitive environment. We offer a diverse range of topics that combine artistic and business skills, personal growth, and creative thinking in order to develop the artist as a whole.

Founded by Michael DeVellis and developed with James Vincent – a team with a combined 30 plus years in the pro-beauty industry – The Powder Group provides unprecedented access to the most current and real-life ways of thinking about your career.

Our presenters have been more than 100 of the top experts from the areas of film, television, theater, fashion and editorial. And over the past seven years, we have created and presented hundreds of educational experiences in more than a dozen cities including New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Chicago, Montreal, Toronto, London, Vancouver, San Francisco, Minneapolis, Las Vegas, Washington DC, Dallas, New Orleans, Boston and Provincetown. Our events have touched thousands of artists, from every corner of the globe.
