The Makeup Show NYC 2019 is in the books! Again, bigger and better than ever. This experience continues to be enlightening, inspiring and educational. This year, more than every, the focus was placed on minority-founded brands, especially from women of colour and the LGBTQIA+ community. This is so important as the beauty space is crowded and often these groups don’t get the shine that they (we) deserve. This follows the trend of more and more brands coming launch to service traditionally underserved communities.

So, without further ado…’s a visual recap: The Makeup Show NYC 2019!!
