It is almost that time of year again. The Makeup Show is probably the best trade show for cosmetics. I have gone for the past two years and I always leave with great deals and tips on makeup application and skincare check my recap posts here and here.

The Makeup Show will be held on May 5th and 6th again at the Metropolitan Pavilion at 125 W. 18th st. The event is so massive that you may need two days to cover it all. Not only do  you get to interact with brands and purchase items at a discounted price you also get to sit for the education courses which I find to be the most valuable. The top professionals in the beauty industry share their tips and tricks on everything from creating a flawless canvas to special fx makeup.
