The Makeup Show NYC 2015 Part 1

Hey Everyone,

I’m Back!!!

I’m so excited to be back! I have so much to share with you my fingers are practically twitching as I type. I took a couple of weeks off for a much needed holiday (I haven’t had one in a year). I was in the states for a working holiday – working of course because as they say I am  a bit of a workaholic.

The highest point of my trip would have to be – The Makeup Show New York. TMS is definitely my favourite makeup show yet; the energy, the people, the makeup… FUN! 

The Makeup Show NYC, which continues to be the largest pro-driven beauty event in the world, was held on Sunday, May 3rd and Monday, May 4th at Metropolitan Pavilion in downtown New York City. Now in its 10th year, The Makeup Show NYC celebrated its first decade by bringing inspiration, education and opportunity to over 7,000 attendees at the first- ever The Makeup Show Week.
