Recap: The Makeup Show NYC 2016 Press Preview


On April 30th, 2016, I attended The Makeup Show NYC press preview at the Metropolitan Pavilion at 125 W. 18th Street. James Vincent, The Makeup Show's Director of Artistry and Education, gave us a sneak peek at this year's show and took us through his favorite products. 

This year at The Makeup Show included 150 brands,  4 floors of education, and innovation focused on trend, technology and techniques. Attendees were able to shop the participating brands at 40-70% off retail pricing and meet with brand founders and International artists. Education included everything from how to get to the next level to how to land an agent.

Recap: ABC Carpet & Home Spring 2016 Beauty Wellness Wisdom Event


On April 9th, 2016, I attended this Spring's ABC Carpet & Home Beauty Wellness Wisdom event at 888 Broadway at East 19th Street. Last month's all-day retreat included wellness talks, mini spa treatments, astrology, palm readings and master classes.

The morning consisted of a mini chakra meditation by Sarah Platt-Finger, co-founder of Ishta Yoga, a spring star forecast with spiritual astrologer Demitra Vassiliadis, a conversation with wellness entrepreneurs Leila Janah, Millana Snow, Marius Morariu, Annie Ryu and Indie Lee, followed by an experiential Kundalini workshop with Valerie Oula and an interactive exercise to unlock your awareness, break subconscious patterns and align with your intentions with reiki healer and SERENE co-founder Millana Snow. 

This is definitely an event you want to arrive early to, if you plan on taking advantage of afternoon wellness and beauty treatments. Sign up sheets fill up very quickly with limited spots open! I didn't get there until the early afternoon, and by then there's wasn't one spot open. If you are lucky maybe you can find a canceled slot or get squeezed in toward the end of the event. 

Check out highlights below from the afternoon spa & wellness experiences.
