The Makeup Show 2013!!!

So beauties, I am so mad at myself! I attended the makeup show maybe about 2 months ago and I totally forgot to share my trip/pics with you all!
*Forgive Me*

For the past 7 years, The Makeup Show has brought Beauty Professionals and Fashion industries together. It is the ultimate shopping and network event/convention, providing a place for the public to meet the their favorite bloggers, makeup artist and shop their favorite beauty brands with discounts as much as 40% off. 

When I saw my friend/ celeb mua Alexandra Butler was going along with some other mua's I've been wanting to meet; also to meet some of you I had to find a way to attend. Luckily, a spot opened up to stay with Alex which made it a lot easier for me to go. 

This year the makeup show was hosted at the Metropolitan Pavilion (125 West 18th Street) in NYC.  This venue was huge and beautiful with its all white interior. If you've attended The Makeup Show before, you'll know that when you first walk in, and see ALL the makeup booths its completely overwhelming! I think when I walked in side I stood in the same spot for like 3 minutes looking left to right. 

The main company's I wanted to see and purchase from were: OCC (Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics) mainly for lip tars, Crown Brush, Bdellium Tools, and Inglot. I have pro cards for all the other major brands, so I wanted to focus more on the ones that don't have pro memberships or who's memberships don't offer much of a discount. Check out the pics below of my trip. Sorry no video, I completely forgot and the pictures I did take were on my way out. It was a battle in there guys! Girls you grabbing, snatching and running for the register...Things were selling out fast. So if you plan on attending next year....go as early as you can to make sure you get what you need before it sells out.

Enjoy the pics!

What I purchased...

Somehow this is the only photo I can find of the things I purchased. I could go take a picture but now they are all used and in my so they don't look as new. Anyway I bought a palette from inglot, 2 liptars in Hoochie and Digitalis, a blush from Kevin Aucoin and a 5 lipsticks from Auraline Beauty! Total I think I spent maybe a little over $100. I would have got more if the things I wanted were not sold out. So once again I say, if you plan on attending next year go early!

The rest of the pics were taken before and after The Makeup Show!
