This year’s Makeup Show was epic! There were a lot of brand new companies, as well as more established companies launching their pro lines. This time, I was most interested in the education part of the show. There were some fantastic makeup artists in attendance giving of their knowledge and experiences. There was a lot to learn but the one thing that I walked away with was,
“Don’t give up on yourself!” – Ashunta Sheriff
And this was the premiere of the “Icon Gallery”. An exhibit celebrating the pioneers and icons of makeup artistry. This year, Kevyn Aucoin was honoured. He is one of my early personal favourites and was the best at that time!
Check out some of the amazing stuff!

Finally my review of The Makeup Show NYC!! I have been waiting for this event all year!! I attended for the first time last year and it was an amazing experience!!! See my review from last year here and here.
This year I attended as a beauty blogger and I had the honour to attend the Blogger Preview and New Groove event the night before the big show. I was super excited!!!!!
My Saturday afternoon started in Chelsea in NYC at the Blogger Preview. This was hosted by celebrity makeup artist James Vincent, who is the Director of Education and Artist Relations for The Makeup Show.
