The Makeup Show NYC - Makeup Show Information and Show Wishlist

I can always guess when I’m watching a dream sequence in a movie because things are just too good. Let me set that scene for you - a montage of shopping, beautiful clothes twirling, whimsical creatures floating about, smiles from everyone, and vibrant colors set against an even more vibrant city. While some events are truly part of the imaginary, the scene I just described is very much real and very much happening on May 4th and 5th in New York City.

The Makeup Show is a professionals only event open to all those ‘dreamers’ in the beauty and fashion industry. True to its name, The Makeup Show is focused toward makeup artists, hairstylists, estheticians, cosmetologists, agents, models, and stylists.  Continuing on its nine year tradition, the Show features hands-on workshops with expert makeup artists (and that’s “artist” in every sense of the word!), keynote speakers from throughout the beauty industry, and kit building series. An array of makeup and beauty brands, from Beautylish to Kevyn Aucoin, are also available to interact with the attendees and introduce new collections. The whole event is meant to be an industry experience where individuals learn from each other and gain inspiration in a creative setting.

My sister and I will have the wonderful opportunity of attending The Makeup Show in a press capacity - we’ll be documenting all the makeup news, expert tricks and tips, and of course, the shopping (our Makeup Show wishlist is inspired by the best products and the brightest of shades). As your “women on the inside,” feel free to let us know in the comments if you’re looking for any specific coverage or wish to learn more about  the brands exhibiting at The Makeup Show. 

Visit The Makeup Show for ticket information, frequently asked questions, and blog updates from the Show’s organizers (Shelly Taggar, the owner of The Makeup Show, is the brains and brawn behind the whole event and her enthusiasm and dedication are simply contagious).
Finally, let’s talk about our beauty wishes. NARS and MAC makeup on sale? Legendary makeup artists creating out of this world looks? Swatching every possible color and falling in love with brand new products? A girl can dream… (or a girl can get herself tickets to the Makeup Show this weekend).

And in the most fitting of clichés, my sister and I declare that it’s time to get this Show started!

Stay Pretty, Miranda and Mackenzie M.
