This past weekend I was lucky enough to attend The amazing Makeup Show in New York City. Events like this remind me (not that I forget) how lucky I am to live in one of the best and most lively cities in the world.
The Makeup Show is in it’s 5th year and was presented by the Powder Group. The Makeup Show is a trade show that presents new products, companies and cult-favorites to the industry. At this two-day show, we were given insider info to new collections, “pro” only products (those offered solely to licensed makeup professionals), as well as given the opportunity to speak to those leading creators in the beauty world such as Makeup Forever’s Dany Sanz. Seminars, workshops, and tutorials filled the booths and girls everywhere carried bag after bag and new secrets to flawless skin! The Makeup Show is currently in Los Angeles and New York but will (hopefully!) next year also be presenting in Europe!
This truly is a must-attend event for any one interested in the beauty industry!
High profile brands such as MAC Cosmetics, Makeup Forever and Stila were all exhibitors as well as international brands such as Embryolisse and Face Atelier, drugstore brand L’Oreal showed their new collections and skin care cult favorite Mario Badescu really rocked the show. Creators, brand representatives, artists all swarmed the Metropolitan Pavilion to provide the best advice and insight into the beauty world for consumers and professionals alike. Artists such as Tegan Taylor who was responsible for Avatar’s ground-breaking makeup as well as Louie Zakarian from Saturday Night Life, and of course Makeup Forever’s Emmy for As the World Turns was proudly on display.
I was also able to meet some great other bloggers…
