The Makeup Show New York 2014

Wednesday, May 21, 2014

Hi lovelies,

I've been away for a minute but I'm back and thrilled too. I just got back from a 2 week trip to NYC and while I was there you know i had to attend The Makeup Show NYC...

If you know me or have been reading this blog for a while you that The Makeup Show New York is one of my favourite events and I make it a point to attend as often as possible. On the 4th and 5th of May me and about 7,000 other beauty professional gathered for the biggest edition yet! Over 120 beauty brands, 70 keynotes, hands on workshops and seminars.

An amazing 2 days of shopping, education and inspiration. The show featured over 120 brands; some all time favourites like Diamond sponsor MAKE UP FOR EVER, Platinum Sponsor Crown Brushand Temptu PRO, Silver Sponsors Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics, NARS, Stila, Supporting Sponsor Smashbox, Alcone, Pinnacle Cosmetics, INGLOT, The Powder Group and On Makeup Magazine.  Over 20 new beauty brands joined The Makeup Show NYC for the first year ever.  The show was proud to welcome Sephora, ARDENCY INN, Black|Up Cosmetics, Ashunta Sheriff Beauty, Charlotte Tilbury,Gorgeous Cosmetics, Jouer Cosmetics, Surrat Beauty, Vincent Longo, Breakups to Makeup, and many more to their first and highly successful The Makeup Show NYC.

Also new this year was The Makeup Show’s Artist Kit Building Series.  The Makeup Show Kit Focus Feature Area was designed to give show attendees the opportunity to compare and contrast products from the same category by looking, feeling and revealing the facts and fundamentals that separate one from another.   This series proved to be a valuable addition to the show as each of the classes nearly sold out.

Crazy line to get in but thanks to my press pass I get to skip it and walk right in :-)

As always I had a great time. Something about a room full of pro artists and makeup brands puts a huge smile on my face. I got my makeup fix and now I can't wait to play with all my new toys :-)
