My To-Do List for The Makeup Show LA 2013

Obsessed…the booths I always make a point of going by to say hey to the awesome people running them:

Enkore Makeup, Pursebuzz (Elessa Jade), Embryolisse (Robyn from Purely Cosmetics will be there too!), and Senna Cosmetics (Eugenia Weston is my boo. <3 her)

The booths most likely to make me MAKE IT RAIN MONEYS because I will almost definitely want to buy something:

NARS Cosmetics (shocking I know), Cult Nails (SO excited to see these in person for the first time), Naimies (because uh, it’s friggin Naimies they have EVERYTHING), Muse Beauty Pro (esum brushes. Me = brush hoarder. Esum brushes = awesome. No math to do there, it’s just logic folks!)

Booths I am super stoked to try out products from:

CAO Cosmetics, Ofra Cosmetics, Gorgeous Cosmetics, Saucebox Cosmetics, Billy B Beauty <—-all these brands are new (to me) and I wanna go exploring. :)

There’s also a plethora of fascinating industry pros giving away their secrets in the seminars and keynote forums! Just the seminars alone are worth going. Even if you don’t wanna shop at all, you could just go and sit in on these amazing people and learn so much. I love going to events like this because not only do I always pick up some new tips, I get more inspired by being in the same room with so many passionate people.
