The Makeup Show NYC

Earlier today I attend The Makeup Show at the Metropolitan Pavilion. It is the largest event for beauty pros/bloggers. It was a two-day event, Sunday May 15th and Monday May 16th. I thought attending today would mean less people but I was SO very wrong. It was a madhouse!

Just a drag queen on stilts... no big deal

Every makeup brand you could think of was there: NARS, Temptu, Make Up For Ever, Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics, Sam Fine, RMS, Inglot... just to name a few. I wanted to stop by Inglot because I've heard such great things. You can customize a palette with them for a fairly good price. However, it was super crowded and I wasn't getting helped.

Besides discounted makeup, there are seminars including makeup tutorials and career advice. I passed by the Special FX: From Beauty to Beast seminar featuring Lee Grimes of Cosmix School of Makeup Artistry. He was discussing prosthetic - pretty amazing stuff!

Overall, it was a great experience. Got to meet up with some bloggers and browse makeup. I just wish there was more time in the day to see and meet everyone.

Did you go to the event? What did you get?


  1. I had no idea this existed but it looks like it must have been amazing! I am such a beauty junkie :)

  2. What the hell!!!!? I could use makeup tutorials in my life...I obviously need to keep a better ear on the ground for these things.

    Looks so fun and useful.


We all have opinions... I want to hear yours!
