The Makeup Show NYC Blogger Preview

On May 15th, I attended The Makeup Show blogger preview. During the blogger preview, makeup artist James Vincent walked us through the latest beauty must-haves. James is the Director of Artistry for The Powder Group and On Makeup Magazine and also also oversees education for The Makeup Show New York and The Makeup Show Miami. In this video, James discusses his favorites from Crown Brush.

Kevin-James Bennett, makeup artist and on-air makeup expert on HSN for Make Up For Ever spoke about Make Up For Ever's HD blush and aqua cream. In this video, he discusses the aqua cream, which is an ultra-pigmented, long-lasting waterproof eye cream.

When I sat down for the preview, I was thrilled to see a large swag bag on my seat, filled with goodies from some of The Makeup Show's participating brands. Here are the featured brands/products that I received and can't wait to try out!

  • beauty for real - Miracle Mascara (Baby Got Black) and See the light! illuminating lip gloss (D Light)
  • Embryolisse Laboratoires - 30ml Lait Crème Concentre
  • Eve Pearl - Kisses of Pearl Lip Gloss Combo (Moonlight Kiss/Stardust)

  • Stila - One Step primecolor (Rosie Posie)
  • Temptu - S/B Foundation Wheel
  • Three Custom Color - 5 lip color pots

After the preview I also got some samples of Dinair airbrush foundation and eye shadow and Naked Cosmetics mineral pigments.

A big surprise was when attendees received a Luminess Air airbrush makeup machine (since I already have one, I think I may have to hold a giveaway.....stay tuned!). I'm a big fan of Luminess Air ever since they airbrushed my makeup during February Fashion Week at the
Haute Look Lounge.
