The Makeup Show NYC: The Haul!

Part of the excitement of makeup trade shows are the products, this year, I picked up quite a few things. I made a list of everything that I wanted, but; you know how that always end up getting a few extras that weren't on your list.

Let me just say I love makeup (as you already know), so; I was extremely excited about EVERYTHING I purchased...let me warn you that I overuse the word excited in this post way to much. This show was like a buffet of makeup and of course I had to overindulge! I know I didn't need half of the stuff I bought but it was the thrill of it all!


Inglot was my first stop at TMS. They had a 30% off discount the same as they did last year at IMATS. They debuted some new body pigments, I passed on those since I already have so many pigments. I bought a small palette this time, consisting of four colors, last year I bought my 10 pan Inglot palette and I bought all shimmers in a rush...this time I took my time and bought all matte colors.

The Makeup Show NYC: My Experience (Pic Heavy)

The Makeup Show was SIMPLY FAB.COM... there's something so wonderful about being in a room full of makeup artists and makeup enthusiasts. It was such an enjoyable experience, it was everything I thought it would turn out to be. I loved every bit of it, the only thing I hated was that those two days went by so fast.

I didn't go to TMS last year, so; I don't have anything to compare it with, but; I wasn't disappointed. There were dozens and dozens of all kinds of makeup brands, companies and exhibits. The most popular makeup brands that stood out at the event were Inglot, Kissable Couture, Mac, Makeup Forever and OCC to name a few. The show was crazy packed both days, we arrived later on in the day on both days and it was packed until closing.

There were a lot of exciting exhibits from makeovers to special effects and character makeup. It was normal to see models walking around with their faces and bodies completely covered in makeup. I tried to take as many pics of the …

I'm going to The Makeup Show!

Hey, Glamour Dolls!

As you know this time of the year is busy with all kinds of makeup shows from IMATS to The Makeup Show. I didn't blog about IMATS NYC this year because I didn't attend, this year will be different because I'm going to The Makeup Show for the 1st time ever, in NYC!

The Makeup Show is similar to IMATS, it's a trade show that presents seminars, workshops and new products. The show also features product launches, new product lines, networking opportunities and even a career fair this year! One of the biggest differences between IMATS and The Makeup Show is that IMATS is open to everyone, anyone could attend... The Makeup Show is pro only, for individuals and companies that are involved in the makeup industry-you do have to show proof of your profession upon entry.

I'm not from NYC, so; it will be a weekend getaway with a friend of mine, who is also a MUA. I'm excited as I was last year because there will be so many great companies there, I can&…

Up the Amp LOTD

This is a LOTD I did last week, this is the first time that I've worn a full face of makeup in a month...I've been either to tired or haven't had enough time. The look is nothing special, I just used a few Makeup Forever shadows that I rarely used and I used the new Glorify highlighting powder from Mac, it gives a beautiful highlight and a bronze glow to the skin. I also used my recently hauled Up the Amp lipstick.
