The Makeup Show New York 2014


The Makeup Show New York 2014 is just a little over two weeks away.  This is one of the only trade shows that’s geared towards makeup artists that I attend annually.  The discounted cosmetics are appealing, but, I love the education provided at The Makeup Show New York.  The free keynotes and seminars, and the paid hands-on workshops are all helpful for those seeking to build on their makeup artistry and become a better makeup artist.  There’s always something new to discover and learn at The Makeup Show New York.

Students enrolled in courses related to makeup, hair or aesthetics are invited to attend as well. Proof of professions, such as a business card, industry license, COMP card, etc or student status is required at the door prior to gain entry.
