The Makeup Show NY

I have such a great appreciation for makeup artists and photographers.  They are creative and dedicated people who love the business!  I must say, it’s quite exciting!  We look for them to make us beautiful, doing their magic!  This past weekend, I had the pleasure of being in the midst of it all at The MakeUp Show NY held at the Metropolitan Pavillion. 

I had the opportunity of seeing the most popular products in the industry, all the brands and meet with the top educators in the industry.  For the film industry, I had the chance to see from start to finish the artistry techniques used to transform an actor into a believable character.   Whatever you could imagine,  it was achieved through makeup here!  

For two days The Makeup Show NY provided a way for the attendees to learn about the newest lines and product launches.  There were contests, giveaways, gift bags, On MakeUp magazine issues and discounts for all sorts of cosmetic tools.   Guess who spent literally an hour looking through goat hair makeup brushes at ISOMA?  Me!   Testing shimmering bronze blotting papers at the Mai Couture booth and looking amazed at eyelashes shaped like butterflies!!  Loreal® was there with their latest eyeshadows, HipNotic is coming out with some terrific new shades.   MAC Pro® was present, doing the body art thing!  There were so many things, I can’t even name them all!  Eyelashes, colors, air brushing, facial treatments, there was such a buzz! 

I also had the wonderful opportunity to meet and talk with Crystal Wright; the beautiful angel to the industry who assists makeup artists and fashion stylists on the do’s and dont’s through her workshops!  Her guidelines can be applied to anyone who wants to start their own business or get a kick-start on changing the things in your life.  Her book “Crystal Wright’s 30 days® 100 Percent Changing Your Life 30 Days at A Time” is one of thee best books I ever read in making myself get it right!  For me, she was the highlight of the day!  I recommend her book to anyone who needs a BOOST! and

Yes, yes!  I will be sure to remind all of you when the show returns next year, whether it’s Los Angeles or NYC; so you can be in on the fun.  It’s for the professional makeup artist, the beginner who is new to the business or people like me; who just likes to see what’s new and have some fun.  I took a few photo shots below!  Enjoy!  🙂 

Be well – Letia

    I’m simply getting my toes moist in advertising media and starting to learn to do it properly – assets like this blog submit are very helpful. As our Site is based in the US, it?s all a bit new to us. The reference point out is one thing that I worry about as nicely, how one can show your individual genuine enthusiasm and contribute to the solution.
