Under the Dryer was intrigued to learn that a celebrity make-up artist was on The Rock for the GabbyGlam Co-orchestrated Glamcon — a one-day beauty expo at the Worthington, Spanish Court Hotel on Sunday, November 25. Engeline 'Baby' Casseus, who's also a MAC Cosmetics make-up artist, provided make-up and life lessons, and a number of beauty hacks in two master classes.

We went to see Casseus, but stayed for the more: hair and make-up exhibitions in totality from Ash Beauty Studio and Revlon and Blk/Opal foundation matching with make-up artist and body piercing pro Jordan Spencer. We're still amazed with @PrissieMissie founder and make-up artist Shellene Gregory's Day of the Dead-inspired beat. Naturally, your Under the Dryer beauty seekers had to stop and take notes. These are the highlights...
