The Makeup Show 2011: New York Groove Party

So right after the Blogger Preview, I attended the New York Groove Party.  Some of the top celebrity makeup artists were asked to create a look that represented New York for them.  I thought that it was amazing that the bloggers were given the opportunity to have a close-up view of these amazing artists at work and to chat with them, in such a relaxed atmosphere!  The artistry was phenomenal and the night was lots of fun!! I’m going to let the photos speak for themselves.  Another shout out to some more of the people that I met – bloggers Milly from Beauty Logic (hey gyul, you’ve met yet another Trini in New York!), and Lianne from The Makeup Girl, makeup artist Stephanie Flor, and the amazing Ms. Crystal Wright.  If you are a makeup artist or stylist and don’t know who she is, you should.

Off to the photos!!!

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!
