Check out my past coverage of the Makeup Show NYC here and here

A few weeks ago, I attended the Makeup Show and Blogger Preview with Kim of Makeup By Kim Porter. As usual we were in for a treat. Makeup Artist and Director of Education for the Makeup Show James Vincent was on hand dishing about his latest must haves and favorite products.

With James on stage and a room full of bloggers you are bound to have a great time. James dished on products like Auraline Beauty, Menaji Beauty, Embryolisse, Graftobian Makeup Co., Glamcor, Birchbox, Bdellium, and more. He talked about the importance of great skincare, which should be a given. Many people neglect to tackle the real problem when it comes to skin care.

He also talked about the importance of supporting independent brands like Ofra, which I am now a huge fan of because of the palette I purchased at the Makeup Show that following Monday. Brands like M.A.C., Stila, and Makeup Forever have gained great notoriety, but we should also support smaller brands with great products as well.

One thing that I purchased multiple packs of was Dead Sea Elements makeup remover cloths. James talked about how great these are for the skin because of the dead sea salts and minerals infused in the cloths. This goes back to great skin care. Not only are you removing your makeup, you are also enriching your skin with great minerals. I have been using them for two weeks now and a review will be coming soon.

We also had a surprise visit from Danessa Myricks. James Vincent, Danessa Myricks, Jon Hennessey, Esterique Aidan, and Orlando Santiago have created a makeup brush line. Each of their collections feature three of their must have brushes. She explained why she chose her brushes and even shared some of her tips on how she uses them.

Take a look at more photos.
