IBS Speaker Spotlight: Lisa Strawther

With The International Beauty Show New York less than two weeks away, we hope you're prepared to join us for three jam-packed days of all things beauty. Entering it's 101st year, the nation's longest running beauty show is set to draw beauty gurus from all different professions to the Jacob K. Javitz center for 500+ exhibitors, a stellar conference program and a set of show-stopping stage performances that are both enlightening and inspirational. 

Above all else, one of the show's biggest drawing factors is the world class education available to attendees, including 100 free classes, pay-to-attend master classes and hands-on workshops. Leading up to the event, we're highlighting several speakers that you'll want to add to your list of must-sees. Today's spotlight is on Lisa Strawther. 

Who: Strawther is an artist, mom, wife, business owner, educator and longtime lover of makeup, beauty and health. Makeup has been a part of her life ever since she could hold a brush, and education is something she has been passionate about throughout her entire adulthood. With an impressive resume spanning everything from movies, to commercials,  to international magazine covers, super models, celebrities and everything in between, Strawther admits that every aspect of the industry is fascinating and she looks forward to growing with the community.
