The Make Up For Ever Academy – NYC style!

[twitter-follow screen_name=’NoireTropicalB’]

A few weeks ago, I attended the Open House for the new Make Up For Ever Academy that will officially open in the heart of Union Square in NYC in January 2012.  It’s located at 853 Broadway.  So on a rainy autumn evening, I trekked over to see what’s up.

The original academy is located in Paris, France and was founded by Dany Sanz, the brainchild behind MUFE.  So for this NYC location, Floriane David is the Director of Education and the curriculum is based off of the French academy.  Applications are now being accepted for future semesters. This makeup program is internationally renowned for providing intense, in-depth training to turn up-and-coming artists into multi-faceted, full-fledged artistes.  There are 3 modules that cover various topics in make up artistry:

  • Beauty & Fashion
  • Film & TV
  • Artistic & Stage

IMATS, IMATS, IMATS NYC!!

That’s pretty much what I said when I heard that the International Makeup Artist Tradeshow (IMATS) was finally coming to NYC in 2011.  In L.A. and Toronto, it is usually a must-go event and I was excited! I love going to these shows for a number of reasons,

  1. I get shop a lot of different makeup brands, especially those that are usually online only, at a discount.
  2. I get to meet fellow bloggers and vloggers that I ‘stalk’ on a daily basis
  3. And…I get to take classes taught by some of my favourite celebrity makeup masters.

So I attended last Sunday, which ended up being a great idea as I heard that it was just chaos on Saturday.  I got to SoHo early so I was able to browse the booths with ease.  Even though the show was hosted on multiple levels, there were less vendors than I expected.  There were many of the most popular brands that were not there like M.A.C. and Make Up For Ever.  I think that the organizers played it conservatively and limited the number of attendees and vendors.

I had a short shopping list and as soon as I get there, I headed to those specific booths.  Here’s my mini haul!

Haul!
