The Makeup Show is hitting Los Angeles this weekend and we are as excited as two beauty bloggers at the best makeup convention in the country! As you can see from the image of a portion of my haul in 2013, this event is packed with some of the most fabulous beauty brands around.
My shopping list this year includes MAKE UP FOR EVER, Ellis Faas, Kevyn Aucoin, OCC, Besame, NARS, Veil Cosmetics, Wayne Goss…oh, I’ll just stop now.
But before we walk through the front doors of the convention, we’ve gathered what we’ve learned from past events and shared our Top 5 Tips for surviving The Makeup Show over on their official blog. The tips are:
1. Come with a plan
2. Wear comfortable shoes
3. Dress in layers
4. Carry a cross-body purse (and tuck a lightweight tote into it)
5. Bring makeup wipes
Visit The Makeup Show blog to see why these are all so important. (We elaborate up a storm!) And get the 411 on this one of a kind event for beauty insiders and pros.
