THE MAKEUP SHOW NYC POST SHOW WRAP UP #1

Hello friends!!   I recently returned from a whirlwind trip to New York to attend The Makeup Show.  There were three days worth of activities, shopping, teaching and meetings, and every moment was just spectacular.  It was incredible to me to be surrounded by artists all weekend and people who understand the love and passion I have for color and makeup.  I spoke to seasoned famous artists as well as to beginners.  Each were absolutely excited to be there and experience all the show had to offer.  It was just everything to me to be in such an artistically supportive all-encompassing environment.  I'll be floating on my artist's high for quite awhile.

When I returned home, I had pressing contracts and events I had to attend to before I could sit down and tell you all about the show.  I'll be covering everything here and on youtube as well in an ongoing fashion.  To open, I'd like to share the official press release from The Makeup Show, NYC as well as some pictures I took throughout the weekend.



THE MAKEUP SHOW WRAPS A WEEKEND OF INSPIRATION AS BOBBI BROWN, MISS FAME, AND OVER 100 OTHER SPEAKERS TOOK THE STAGE 


Community, networking, education, and inspiration remain the best four words to describe the largest pro makeup event in the United States. 


NEW YORK, NY (MAY 2018) – The Makeup Show NYC, took place on MAY 6 th and 7 th at Metropolitan Pavilion. This year, the show brought a great platform for attendees to network, learn, get inspired, receive amazing deals on some of the top brands in the world, and so much more!

Shelly Taggar, Owner of The Makeup Show states, “The Makeup Show is so much more than just a trade show. It is a place for artists to network, shop, take classes, set new beauty trends in the industry, and for top brands to launch new products to the pro community. With our increase in education this year there was an even stronger sense of community and inspiration for artists. Our goal for the show is to continuously change people’s lives by creating new opportunities and inspiring artists to advance in their careers. I’m very proud of what this show has become and look forward to continuing to achieve these goal in Orlando, Chicago, and Los Angeles.”

 Below you will find a snapshot of what the weekend offered.

The Makeup Show continues to set trends in the beauty industry! This years show was no exception with rose gold product launches, new brand collaborations, and glitter everywhere !

The legendary Pat McGrath hosted a Casting Call for new talent exclusively at The Makeup Show NYC! Artists lined up with portfolios in hand for a chance to be considered and to have the opportunity to interview with the Mother herself!

“Shades of Beauty” Art Gallery made its debut at The Makeup Show NYC! This gallery featured Danessa Myricks and Moshoodat Sanni, two individuals who have inspired us to embrace the artistry of makeup. With their insight of the elements of makeup and fine art, each of these women gave inspiration with every color chosen, every line drawn, every shape and texture.

(Shades of Beauty was the most incredible display of makeup art that I've seen.  I could have spent hours studying the techniques, colors and textures.  This collection proves that "skin is IN".  Sadly, pictures just couldn't capture what I saw with the naked eye but the pics will just give you a little idea of what was there.  The spotlight made for visual perfection in person but rough for photo capture.  You can see more images on my Instagram.)
