If you didn’t know this is the season of beauty trade shows here in New York City. Last weekend I attended IMATS (the International Makeup Artists Trade Show) which unlike TMS is open to the public. The lines were extremely long and I wasn’t able to stop by all of the vendors I intended on seeing. This is one of the reasons I prefer attending The Makeup Show NYC.
The Makeup Show is a trade show where professionals in the beauty industry go to learn about the latest techniques and get to attend inspirational and educational workshops and forums. I’m particularly interested in a few of the seminars being offered like Uncovering Flawless Skin: Introducing Ultra HD – Jessie Powers for Make Up For Ever & NYFW 2015: Runway Makeup Trends, Tips & Tricks – MEHRON Makeup. Of course I’m also super excited about the amazing deals and new products that will be available, many at a significant professional discount.
If you remember, last year was my first time attending The Makeup Show NYC and I loved every minute of it. (Missed it, check it out here). I’m even more excited for this year as The Makeup Show is celebrating 10 Years in the game and are bringing along some exclusive Limited Edition items to commemorate the festivities.
Now in it’s 10th year, The Makeup Show has collaborated with ten beauty brands (Auraline Beauty, INGLOT, Crown Brush, I Make You Beautiful, Glamcor Tec, London Brush Company, Pinnacle Cosmetics, MAKE UP FOR EVER, Mehron and TEMPTU) to commemorate this milestone. This occasion called for each of these brands to offer an exclusive product that will only be available at The Makeup Show NYC 10th Anniversary events. Let’s take a look at some of the limited edition exclusive items that will be offered during The Makeup Show’s 10th Anniversary events.
First up, Auraline Beauty is offering 5 shades of Brow Tints. You can use these brow tints to set, tame, condition and tint your brows to fill in your brow hairs and have them last all day. The formula is made to offer a flexible hold so no flaky brows.
Not that I need any more brushes but this set is definitely tempting! Crown Brush is bringing the Form & Fuse 10 Year Anniversary brush set This 5 piece set offers the Studio Pro Contour Brush, a Duo Fiber Blush Brush and 3 eye shadow brushes (the Small Sable shadow, Precision Detail & the Deluxe Pointed crease brush). The Fuse & Form brush set from Crown Brush provides five brushes that will improve your contouring, eyeshadow placement and blending to leave you with a beautifully blended look.
Another love of mine you know is matte lipsticks! INGLOT has partnered up with The Makeup Show NYC to offer 5 summer shades at the event. I’ve never tried lipstick from INGLOT but seeing all 5 of these gorgeous shades I am definitely intrigued. Knowing there are added benefits of Vitamin E, macadamia oil, and avocado oil moisturize makes these matte lipsticks sound like ones I definitely need to try!
Mehron has teamed up with The Makeup Show and created a Cream and Powder Blush Set inspired by Mr. Vincent himself. James Vincent is the man behind TMS. As Director of Education and Artist Relationships, he ensures the professionals in the beauty industry attending The Makeup Show events stay up to date with the latest knowledge of technique and products in the world of makeup artistry. His love for applying cream and powder blushes for a flawless makeup application inspired this limited edition Mehron blush palette.
For the makeup artist who prefer airbrushed applications. To celebrate The Makeup Show’s 10th Year Anniversary, they’ve teamed up with Tempt PFO to release this new limited edition bronzer in Terra Gold. I could only imagine how beautiful this airbrushed sun kissed golden glow would look. Airbrushed makeup gives a long lasting, flawless but natural look.
Now I don’t have experience with airbrushed makeup so you know I had to take it to YouTube so I can see airbrushed makeup in action. I came across this gorgeous look from one of the YouTubes I follow and adore, It’s My Raye Raye. She’s a fellow New Yorker (she moved to the West Coast now though) doing big things in the beauty community so I am happy to share this video with you. You can check out how It’s my Raye Raye effortlessly slays her face using Temptu Airbrushed for her foundation, blush, highlight AND lipstick application below.
The Makeup Show NYC will be celebrating the whole week of April 28th – March 5th, 2015 offering educational, networking and recreational activities. Their hands on workshops, seminars and the return of The Makeup Show career fair is the place to be for anyone aspiring to have a career in the beauty industry.
The release of limited edition makeup products to commemorate The Makeup Show 10th year anniversary makes it even more exciting, Can’t wait to see what the MAKE UP FOR EVER TMS exclusive Artist Eyeshadow Palette looks like. My girl BeautywithMika lives for her MUFE shadows so this may be a great time for me to try them out.
