The Makeup Show NYC 2011: The Big Show!!

[twitter-follow screen_name=’NoireTropicalB’]

Finally my last post on The Makeup Show! I’ve waited for this all year and it did not disappoint! The biggest show ever, now occupied 2 floors of the Metropolitan Pavilion! I was a little overwhelmed.  More vendors than before and the main theme of the event centred around education of the artist on new techniques, product lines, marketing yourself etc.  One of the best things were the PRO Pods, which allowed experts to connect one-on-one artists to exchange ideas.

I spent the day attending as many workshops that I could and I also did a little bit of shopping (of course!!!).  Met some new people, caught up with some old friends and had an amazing time!!!

Enough talk! Here are the pictures!!! And again, if we took pictures together, tag me or let me know!!!

Enjoy!

NARS Cosmetics made their TMS debut this year and it was one of the first booths that I visited.

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!!!

Introducing OCC Tint

Hey!

Last Friday I had the privilegde of attending the launch of Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics’ new line of tinted moisturizers called OCC Tint.  This event took place at the Wonderland Beauty Parlour in the Meatpacking District.  What a great way to start off the weekend, playing with makeup!

OCC continues to expand its OCC Skin product line (they introduced a line of vegan brushes this year) and this time they have focused on lightweight makeup suitable for today’s hi-definition standards.

According to OCC:

OCC Tint, our hand-applied tinted moisturizer boasts an unparalleled amount of adjustable coverage, available in a wide range of ultra-moisturizing shades that look as great in person as they do in close-up on HDTV and in a hi-res digital photograph. This alternative to airbrush application is already a Make-Up Artists’ favorite, recently field-tested by the Artists at OCC during New York and Los Angeles Fashion Week.
