The Makeup Show

It is Christmas time in the makeup world as The Makeup Show is coming to New York on May 7th to May 8th to the Metropolitan Pavilion. As a blogger/makeup junkie, I absolutely love this event! I covered it last year and I am still amazed at the discounts that we all received on makeup. I will be there covering the show this year as well, wouldn’t miss it!

There were various classes to watch, and many industry professionals took a seat to watch and develop their skills. Many of your favorite brands will be in attendance. I left with a ton of goodies and to this day I still have a few things that I haven’t opened yet. Everyone is in great spirits and overall it is definitely a great time. Check out my photos from last year above.

If you are a makeup student, here is where you need to be. If you are a makeup artist and you have yet to hear of this wonderful show — you’re missing out, make sure that you are in attendance to stock your kit. Lastly, if you are just a makeup lover .. how could you miss this?!
