On Saturday, May 5th, I attended The Makeup Show Press Preview + Brunch at the Metropolitan Pavilion. James Vincent, The Makeup Show's Director of Artistry and Education gave us a sneak peek at this year's show and walked us through his favorite beauty products.
After the preview, media guests enjoyed a delicious brunch buffet and got a sneak peek at new beauty products from Mehron, NYX Cosmetics, Crown Brush, Rebels and Outlaws, TwinMedix and more.
Guests also got a first look at "Shades of Beauty" with Danessa Myricks and Moshoodat Sanni - an art gallery that explores the relationship between art and making art.
Here's a list of the products featured during the press preview. Can't wait to test these products out! I'll be sharing on instastory when I do!
