The Makeup Show 2012: My Experience & Haul

First and foremost,with a outstanding win, I am happy Barack Obama won the 2012 presidential election! 

This week I attended the Makeup Show in Orlando. For those who are unaware of the Makeup Show, it is an event held once a year, which brings together brands, makeup artist and students. At the event you will find: awesome brands, discounted products, seminars, and workshops.

This year the Makeup Show was held at the Peabody Hotel. I was ecstatic to go, since it was my first time going. Once I arrived, I noticed there weren’t many exhibitors (Kevyn Aucoin was listed, but wasn’t there), and inside was a semi-packed crowd. My first stop was a seminar held by Celebrity makeup artist AJ Crimson. AJ gave valuable information on branding, and building a name for yourself. In addition, he introduced his new makeup collection, which is now available for purchase. I wanted to get to the Makeup Forever booth, but majority of beauty addicts were there, so I went to go check out other brands. My next stop was Inglot Cosmetics, while there were a few people in line, I managed to swatch some products, and ask questions, I’ve heard so many great things about Inglot Cosmetics on Youtube, and from other beauty bloggers. I even ran into the lovely KoKoFemme from Youtube, if you have n YT account, be sure to subscribe to her channel. It was only right I got a freedom palette (neutral colors), and a concealer. Although there were items I wanted, I only ended up getting a few things that I needed. I made my way to each booth, but made final purchases from Crown Brush, Ofra Cosmetics, Stila Cosmetics. After 3 hours of pure beauty bliss, I was exhausted and ready to go home. I had an awesome time at the Makeup Show, and will definitely go again next year 😉
