The Makeup Show NYC: Snapshot of My Experience on the Show Floor

Veil Cosmetics The Makeup Show NYC BeautyJudy

At The Makeup Show NYC a couple weeks ago, I spent a good amount of time in sessions and chatting with creative directors, makeup artists and brand reps, so this will be a briefer show roundup than usual as I’ve got more focused coverage coming of brands like Mehron and Veil Cosmetics.

I definitely think this year, my round up is more about my experience at the show vs. coverage of everything. There was SO much more to the show than I could capture! I am hoping to make it both days next year.

Also – did you check out Monday’s post about the education sessions I attended? No? Check it out here!

This look at the Cosmix School of Makeup Artistry booth is so dimensional.

I loved this creative body artistry with purples, blues and greens at the Mehron booth by Jinny Makeup.

IT Cosmetics made its first appearance at The Makeup Show NYC this year. I’ve always had mad love for this brand because it was created by a woman who suffers the same skin problem as me, rosacea.

I picked up Confidence in a Compact in Fair and one of the Confidence in Your Glow ombre blushing bronzers knowing that a pop of color and bronzer is key for a good summer look this year!

The Charlotte Tilbury booth was packed this year. I remember the first year the brand was at the show, they just had some of their products on display that you could see in person, but you couldn’t purchase. It was different this year, and I truthfully didn’t want to battle my way to the testers to pick something out. But I am really keen to try something from the brand.

Just like at IMATS NYC, Beautylish featured Jeffree Star Cosmetics at The Makeup Show NYC. I just think all the Skin Frosts are so pretty.

One of my favorite booths to stop at? Breakups to Makeup. Angelique always has the best sayings on gear – shirts, pins, compacts, makeup bags…I picked up a makeup bag for my mom for Mother’s Day.

In addition to new sayings, the brand introduced new expanded sizing.

Plus size! YAY! Thank you, Angelique, for knowing us thicker women like to sport great sayings about our passion for makeup, too!

Senna Cosmetics The Makeup Show NYC BeautyJudy

This is a bit of a dark picture, but Senna Cosmetics was actually one of my very first stops the first day of the show. I wanted to pick up a new Lash Detail Mascara. I’d received one of their Brow Fix X brow gels in my press bag the day before, in a brown shade. I was delighted there was also a Golden Blonde color and I picked that up. I can wear both blonde and brown, and I switch it up depending on my mood. I much prefer brow gels and having a natural look.

Senna also had this beautiful highlighters:

That’s a quick back of the hand swatch of both colors mixed. I picked this up (it’s called Rose Quartz) and I use the darker pink side as a blush on the apples of my cheeks blended up, and I added the light pink everywhere I want highlight. It creates a very pretty fresh face for me.

Senna Cosmetics The Makeup Show NYC BeautyJudyJust the picture of that swatch alone makes me wish I’d gotten that juicy lip color. Senna launched their new Lip Luster Sheer Hydrating Lip Color just in time – Summer makeup trends are going to steer towards a more glossy lip (as well as metallics and pops of color) and this just looks so hydrating, and perfect for a fresh faced-look. These lippies come in eight shades, and ingredients include shea butter, jojoba, avocado and soybean oils saturate lips to seal in moisture, as antioxidant Vitamin E helps heal and prevent from dryness.

L'Oreal The Makeup Show NYC BeautyJudy

This was my lip for day one of the show. L’Oreal Infalliable Paints lip color in Spicy Blush. This wore beautifully, but I did touch up a couple times just because I wanted to feel that hydration on my lips. The color definitely stained a bit so it looked great all day.

Kat Von D The Makeup Show NYC BeautyJudy

This was my eye makeup at the show. I used the Kat Von D Pastel Goth palette, Tarte Make Believe in Yourself Palette to create the shadow look, the Jesse’s Girl Black Liquid Eyeliner and Tarte Tartiest Lash Paint mascara. I also use the Kat Von D Alchemist Holographic Palette for highlight to brow.

So honestly, that’s what I’ve got. I’ve got a lot more, you saw my coverage of Note Cosmetics last week here, and I also wrote a post about the makeup artist gallery here. Stay tuned for more coverage coming on brands and products over the coming weeks!

If you had the opportunity to attend a professional makeup artist trade show, what would you most be interested in seeing/doing/learning?!
