By Steffie Nelson Clearly there is no stereotypical makeup industry pro, because the debut last week of the Makeup Show L.A. at the California Market Center drew cosmetics buffs of every color, stripe and packaging. There were rocker chicks with purple hair and matching lips, tanned and lithe blonds in black, older gentlemen in suits, skinny boys with eyeliner and artfully contoured cheekbones, drag queens, fashionistas, and suburban moms; all streaming into the penthouse space to test new products, sit in on seminars and maybe score some cheap sable brushes.
