Top 10 Things To Do at PHAMExpo 2013


PHAMExpo is coming!!!! The Professional Hair And Makeup Expo is this coming weekend, June 29-30th! If you don’t have your tickets yet, they are still available (and will be more expensive at  the door), so go getcha some tickets! It’s open to the public, but there are discounts available for professionals (as well as some pro-only hours so you don’t have to fight the unwashed masses while you shop!).

Top 10 Things To Do at PHAMExpo 2013
In no particular order…

#1 – Go gaga with starry-eyed AWE at all of the celeb MUAs in attendance (oh hello Eve Pearl, Scott Barnes, Troy Jensen, Kevin James Bennett, and more!!!) and learn as much as you can from watching their seminars and demos!

#2 – Meet up with your fav bloggers (*ahem*) and youtube gurus at the Blogger Meetup Area. I’ll be there, along with one of my blogger besties Mai from Portrait of Mai, and bunches of other fabulous ladies. Tweet me during the show if you wanna say hey!

#3 – Cop a feel of all the amaaaaazing brushes PHAMExpo has to offer from brands like Royal & Langnickel, London Brush, Morphé, Bdellium Tools, and Hakuhodo! I don’t think there’s ever been a show where I didn’t come home with at LEAST 2 or 3 new brushes. #sorrynotsorry

#4 – Learn about all of your options for realizing your dream of attending makeup school by talking to reps from Empire Makeup Academy, CAMMUA Makeup Academy, April Love Professional Makeup Academy, EI School of Professional Makeup, My Beauty Mark Makeup Academy, and Ruby Makeup Academy.

#5 – Stock up on LASHES with tons of varieties available from Flutter Lashes, Lash Love, Lashes in a Box, Lady Moss, and more! Trade shows are pretty much the best place to get deals on lashes anywhere.

#6 – Treat your skin to some pampering goodies. Makeup is a blasty blast but our skin does all the hard work behind the scenes. Grab some treats for your face and bod from Bon Bliss, Embryolisse, and others. ;)

#7 – Save some $$ on some of the top brands! Represented at the Naimies booth are Too Faced, Laura Mercier, Make Up For Ever, Bobbi Brown, LORAC, and Smashbox just to name a few. Stila, Inglot, and Temptu will also be there for you to visit and shop with too. Did someone say discounted LIP TARS? Oh yes. Cult fav Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics will be there and you best believe it’s gonna be a mad dash for the lip tars, lip tar gloss stain magicalness, nail polishes, and pigments.

#8 – Shop like a pro. For those of you non-professionals out there, this is a unique opportunity to check out some of the pro-driven lines and talk to the people behind the scenes developing the products. Pick the brains of Mehron, Norcost Pro, RCMA, and Kryolan (via Naimies)!

#9 – Get your SWATCH on, baby! Brands you normally might have to get online will be there so you can swatch and play to your heart’s content before making a purchase. Swatch it up with brands like Lise Watier (via Naimies), Sugarpill, Lime Crime, and Yaby.

#10 – Throw some glitter, make it rain! Glitter specialists Lit Cosmetics and Eye Kandy Cosmetics will be in the house with huge arrays of multipurpose glitters to choose from. Also remember OCC has awesome glitters too! And LA Splash will be there with less expensive options as well. By the way, please don’t actually throw the glitter…it makes MUAs angry and they might bite you. ;)

Getting pretty excited, see you at PHAMExpo! :)
