The Makeup Show NYC 10th Anniversary

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.


Auraline Beauty | Brow Tints Available in 5 Shades | The Makeup Show NYC10th Anniversary

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.

Makeup Show Brushes

Crown Brush Form & Fuse Brush Set | The Makeup Show NYC10th Anniversary

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.

INGLOT matte lipstick

INGLOT | Limited Edition Matte Lipsticks | The Makeup Show NYC10th Anniversary

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 Cream and Powder Blush Set | The Makeup Show NYC 10th Anniversary

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.


TEMPTU Limited Edition Bronzer in Terra Gold | The Makeup Show NYC10th Anniversary

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.

  • Kirsty Meenan

    Thanks for sharing this! I totally forgot about Inglot! Inglot sadly shut down in my city and I am so gutted:( x

    • Kay’s Ways

      Inglot is great quality for the price, you can order online as well. I have some of their shadows and love the gel liner #77 but now I definitely want to try some of these lipsticks.

  • Those products look gorgeous! I wish I was able to attend. That is a very good point that you brought up about the super long lines at IMATS because it’s open to the public. I’ve always wanted to go but maybe I’ll stick to industry trade shows

    • Kay’s Ways

      Don’t get me wrong it’s definitely an experience, it’s always better to have a buddy system there. At TMS I went by myself I wasn’t in a panic thinking about lines and not being able to do everything I wanted to at the event. There’s no chaos, everything is easy going you’re learning and networking. I love it! Industry events are the way to go if you can!

  • Those lippies and blushes!!! I wish I was able to attend, maybe another time! The trade shows sound super fun to go to! I’d love to hear about your experience when you go!

    • Kay’s Ways

      I’ll keep everyone posted on future dates and locations in future posts. Maybe there will be one convenient enough for you to make it. I live here in NYC so the shows always come to town here.

  • Kasi Perkins

    Seems like an awesome event, can’t wait to hear how it goes! Looks like I could use everything you talked about in the post. I feel like it’s probably time for me to get some new brushes. Love It’s My Raye Raye!

    • Kay’s Ways

      ME too, Raye Raye is the bomb! I’ll definitely be sharing my experience in a future post. I’m so excited to soak up some new info! New brushes are always a plus, I love makeup brushes (hence why I don’t need no more, my want is a whole other story)

  • lindsse

    So sad I missed it this year! I love the makeup show!

    • Kay’s Ways

      It’s the best! Maybe you’ll get to catch it next year

  • Freda

    Love the blog post! I think I need some of these products in my life 😉

    • Kay’s Ways

      We all need some of these products in our lives lol

  • These products sound so cool! I’ve never been to IMATS or any other makeup artist trade show, but I would like to some day. Even though I’m not a makeup artist, I still think it’s cool!

    • Kay’s Ways

      I freelance here and there so I like to stay up on all the new techniques and products. It’s definitely something I think every beauty lover should experience.

  • Michelle Hwang

    This really makes me want to live in American and go to these shows! 🙁

    • Kay’s Ways

      Sorry there’s no TMS there. Try to see if there are any other trade shows held in your area. You’d have a ball!

  • I would certainly attend if I was in NYC. I know you will have an awesome time and I can’t wait to see your haul 🙂

    • Kay’s Ways

      I’ve been doing a little too much damage lately, hopefully I can practice some self control Vee lol.

  • Ursula Ball

    Love your makeup review at this year’s trade show!! 10 yr Anniversary that is awesome!!

    • Kay’s Ways

      Thank you

  • This is so cool! 10 years is a long time, can’t wait to see your haul x

    Jasmine ||

    • Kay’s Ways

      Yup 10 years strong, they’re the best at it! Gonna try not to do too much damage but with all these goodies to choose from who can resist?

  • Roni clark

    LOVE LOVE LOVE lipsticks! I have never heard of INGLOT, I’ll have to look them up. Thanks!

    • Kay’s Ways

      INGLOT has the same (if not equivalent or better) quality of products like MAC at a fraction of the cost . Definitely worth a try if you can get your hands on them

  • eeeep! I cannot wait until The Makeup Show in Dallas. I wish I could go to the NY one but it’s coming to a closer city near me. I need to visit Inglot again, I overlooked their crazy booth last year. xo Brigette
