The Makeup Show NYC 2011: the Heidistylhix view

Hello! I know that it was one month ago but I'm still excited about my experience at The Makeup Show NYC. It was my first experience at an industry event as such and I can only sum it up as PRICELESS! Actually, the experience began at Harlem Vintage where I met and spoke with THE Sam Fine.The event was for a wine tasting with special appearance by Mr. Fine. I was both humbled and in awe that he was the one to open conversation between he and I as I walked up to the table where he stood greeting and signing DVDs (yes my well used DVD as well as the cover was signed). My hair was a red violet tone at the time and before I could even ask, he suggested a pencil that coordinated to fill in my eyebrows with. He then asked if I had any questions for him. I was blown away but wasted no time in having my questions answered!

Also at this event I met some people that I plan to never lose contact with. Sherry Blossom: I was already a YouTube subscriber and wanted to meet her to compliment her work. I remember saying something to my best friend about one of her videos before turning around to see her walking in the door. I couldn't believe my eyes! I wasn't able to speak with her until a little later that night, but I'm more than glad that I did. She is an exceptional person to know. I also met The Style and Beauty Doctor: I truly had a great time chatting with her and loved her new short "do".Go girl! Her whole style as a whole is very catchy and it individualized her. Since this meeting, she has given me good laughs and has answered my beauty questions. The Gorgeous Blog aka The Gorgeous Ingredient: Her hair, oh her HAIR! I love it! It was the first thing about her that caught my eye and I stared for I don't even know how many seconds. She has been wearing her hair unprocessed the longest of all of us. Natural hair became a main topic amongst the little huddle that us ladies formed. I didn't feel as though I was around strangers anymore and this event assisted in making me feel elated to back in NYC. Did you see the immensely amazing job that she did of tweeting the happenings of both the Makeup Shows NYC and Chicago? You would have felt like you were there if you were not able to make it. THANK YOU again SanTara! I also had the pleasure of meeting Miss Merli. She was the lady in the huddle who had not yet gone natural but she was surely doing her homework on it. When we saw her at the Makeup Show just a few days later, she made the switch and was starting fresh! I was too happy for her! I got to know both her and The Style and Beauty Doctor a little better since we ended up on the same train. Going to this event left me with an extraordinary amount of eagerness to attend the Makeup Show....and now...on to the show.

2011. The Makeup Show. NYC. WOW! I went without any expectations but even if I did have any, they would have been outdone by what I experienced. Getting in the door was a pretty smooth process. As you may know from my first blog entry, I came with a shopping list for Inglot. That list was immediately reconsidered once I took my first look at the floor. Standing in one spot not knowing where to go gave me the opportunity to see James Vincent walk by. It then came to me that my day would be an unforgettable one. Roque Cozzette, Kenecia Lashae, Danessa Myricks, Crystal Wright (oh my gosh!), Michael DeVellis, Jeremy Meek, Sam Fine-who surprisingly recognized me as soon as he saw me, Eve Pearl, Kim Gray, Jennifer James (she is the TRUTH), oh man, the list just goes on and on! They were conversing, smiling, hugging, kissing, and walking around in enjoyment just like were! Did I mention that this was my first experience at an event like this?

 My purchases:

I managed to stay focused and get everything on my Inglot shopping list. I must give credit to Lourdes Gutierrez, makeup artist in south Florida, who guided and helped me pick every lip and eye shadow color that I own from Inglot to begin building my kit. These were the remaining items that I had to get.

Eye Shadows


Lip Color

I did stop at every booth, taking notes on items to review on my own and asking questions. I made a few more purchases and was gifted a few items. Here is what I got:

I also stopped by the very busy beglimmered tatoo booth and left with this:

I superceded my goal of networking with 20 people. I learned soooooo much about the different skincare and makeup brands, uses for certain products, and just how happy people are to be a part of this industry. I have been sucked in and will definitely, positutely, absolutely attend events like this again.

I hope that you have enjoyed this post. I look forward to putting my next one together for you. Until then: Wash your hands and CREATE!
