Saturday evening, 80 of NY’s top bloggers joined James Vincent of The Powder Group, at the Metropolitan Pavilion for The Makeup Show’s blogger preview.  James 1st thanked us bloggers for coming, as well as acknowledged how important we are.



During this preview, Mr. Vincent not only gave us insight into what to expect at The Makeup Show on Sunday and Monday, he also talked about the newly added features, such as the career floor and pro pods, and the newest exhibitors, NARS, Kevyn Aucoin, and Yves Saint. Laurent.  James Vincent, after letting us all know about the above, he shared his ‘favorite things’ along with a description of why they were his faves.  Like Oprah, we all got one of the items (not all, but most).

Among those items were products from Ruby Kisses by Kiss Cosmetics.




Makeup artist kit must-have, and cult favorite, samples from Embryolisse.

Brush Cleaners from Cinema Secrets and Parian Spirit.

Make Up For Ever’s NEW Aqua Liner.

MAC Cosmetic’s Russian Red lipstick

OCC Lip tar’s, pigment, and glitter

Mehron’s cream foundation

The Powder Group’s Clear Soft pack (Set is on-sale for $45).

He uses the Mario Badescu Summer Shine Body Lotion on set to give the model a natural glow that comes from within. I love the very light pina colada scent it has as well.




Kevyn Aucoin’s white pencil is used for many different things, such as adding highlights to the face, as an eyeshadow base, and to create a smoky eye.



On Makeup as well as Makeup Artist magazines are must-haves for any makeup artist, from beginner to experienced.




And more…





My favorite product that he sppoke about (we didn’t get) was the makeup bag (see below) from the London Brush Company.  It is light weight, yet large enough to hold your complete kit, including brushes.  The only thing I would change is the color.  James also said if the kit you’re carrying needs a suitcase, you have too much stuff in it.




More to come on The Makeup Show NY…
