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.
Here's a look at James' product highlights that we also got to take home. Can't wait to test these out!
