The Makeup Show NYC 2018 is in the books! TMS happened a few weeks ago and I wanted to do my annual roundup, where I give some of my thoughts. I was given the opportunity to attend both The Makeup Show and the Blogger Preview. There were a few changes in the format, the education offered and the brands involved but the entire event felt just as informative and exciting that it always does. I did notice that there were a few absent brands that are normally there and there were a few brands with booths that I did not expect to see there, such as Covergirl.
Anyway, TMS NYC was well organised and I felt as though they did a better job at crowd control.
The Makeup Show NYC 2018: What I learned/what I picked up
So, I did a little damage at the show and I picked up a few items, including the launch of the MUFE Artist Color pencils, which comes in 40 shades. The Inglot x Jennifer Lopez collection was also available. So was Mother, Pat McGrath!
In another first, there were two artists honoured, Danessa Myricks and Moshoodat. Allyuh already know how much like Danessa, but Moshoodat is new brand (to me!). I realized that I have been admiring a lot of work without know who she was! She did an amazing keynote and her makeup creation was fiyah!!
So, “Whey de lime” Fridays is coming a little early! So this is the lime before de lime!! As I have professed many times here on the blog in the past, The Makeup Show NYC is one of my must go-to makeup event. And it is coming up this weekend. I wanted to post this a little earlier so that if you all wanted buy tickets to the event, you would still have time. So The Makeup Show NYC 2018 promises to be the biggest yet and there are some very interesting keynote speakers and brands that will be making their debut at TMS.
I am excited to hear from Bobbi Brown, who is an icon in the makeup artistry industry and she recently made a transition to a new career. Of course favouites Kevin James Bennett, James Vincent and Danessa Myricks will be teaching as well.
Last year: Pat McGrath LABS collection
Brands often use this opportunity to get their newest launches in front of the eyes of makeup professionals. So the new Smashbox x Vlada Petal Metal collection, Inglot x J.Lo collection, blackUp x Jennie Jenkins Highlighter are all expected to be available. And Pat McGrath LABS and Marc Jacobs Beauty are going to be there as well!!!!!!!
The education is what I really look forward to. As I have gotten older, I appreciate the lessons learned and the inspiration obtained from so many artists. I love hearing their stories.
So if you want a glimpse at what to expect at TMS NYC, check out my posts from previous years here and here.
If you are a makeup pro, fashion or beauty professional or a current makeup student, you can still register for the event here until Friday 4th May. More information on the show and a list of exhibitors, check here.
