The Makeup Show All Weekend Long

What a time I had at The Makeup Show in NYC this weekend. I met the most wonderful, welcoming, and thoughtful people I have ever met in quite a long time. It all started when on a whim and with a change of plans I went to the Make Up For Ever launch party on Thursday and had the pleasure of meeting the amazing Ms. Sherry Blossom  and This Fancy Face ( Sherry and Fancy) . So sweet and lovely they were we instantly started talking that sweet language makeup and success. As result of the conversation I found out about an event that was taking place in Harlem with the legendary Sam Fine I was elated! I had such a great time. I met with other amazing artists and bloggers including San Tara whom I adore and look up to and another beautiful and stylist woman Ms. Danielle  whose fashion sense is amayzing (yes I spelled it with a Y). Unfortunately that night I didn't have my camera but I took a few photos with my camera phone but check out Ms. Sherry Blossom  and San Tara for some pictures of that night. Here is the most important photo of the night though.

Anywho the weekend went on and on Saturday I decided to do the unthinkable... Go Natural. Can I tell you while I felt liberated I wanted to cry but like a soldier I let the barber do his job who by the way did a great job check Rob out at Sol in Brooklyn  Here is a photo of the mayhem

Then there was Sunday the first day of the Makeup Show. Of course this year was bigger and better. More floors utilized this time around new vendors like Nars (even though they didn't have anything for sale) and Yves Saint Laurent. Then there were the usual suspects Crown Brush, Make Up For Ever, Alcone, and Inglot just to name a few. So many vendors were there it was almost like a dream but I learned from last years credit card catastrophe you try hard to only buy what you need or don't have at all rather than to buy because it's dirt cheap which in some cases was the case. Here are photos of the good times had by me and amazing artists whom I met. As well as some of the vendors and the products that were being shown. Stay tuned for my Makeup Show haul.
