The Makeup Show NYC 2022

Nick Lujan, Director of Artistry and Education at Kevyn Aucoin Beauty

 One of my favorite shows I look forward to each year is The Makeup Show NYC! This year it took place May 1-2 at the Metropolitan Pavilion. It is the perfect place to check out the demos for some inspiration, attend artistry classes and pickup some tips and techniques, and walk the show floor to see new product launches, see your favorite brands and explore new ones,  and pickup must-have beauty items you may need for your kit or just for your own personal use! 

The best part of buying product at The Makeup Show are the discounts, gifts with purchase and show exclusives! My advice, know in advance who the exhibitors are and have a checklist of who you want to visit and what products/shades you need. Even though I always have a list, there's always more there that catches my eye! Every year at the show I learn new things and meet new people, but it's also a reunion and great to see familiar faces! Here's a look at this year's show highlights!
