If you are a make-up and skincare lover The Make-up Show held yearly at the Metropolitan Pavilion is the place to be. Make-up Forever, MAC, NARS, SMASHBOX, INGLOT this show has it all. The place is jammed with vendors, filled with seminars and packed with really big discounts. I love attending this show! I get some great beauty insight at seminars held by top beauty professionals and I get to explore vendors and companies that perhaps I am not so familiar with.
Here are a few of the great companies I got to know at The Make-up Show extravaganza.
If you are the type of gal that loves the idea of long thick lashes but hates the feel of Eyelash extensions and fears the side effects of Latise then look no further. LashesMD is a clinically proven formula that promises to give you fuller lashes and eyebrows in 2-4 weeks of application. It helps condition and fortify your eyelashes and eyebrows with its botanical and peptides rich formula. It is free of harmful additives such like parabens and hormones, has been proven safe and effective, contains no drugs and according to the LashesMd this is an ethically created product which has a no animals testing policy! Now that’s what I like to hear! There is nothing complicated about this product, you simply apply the serum as if you were applying liquid eyeliner and then let LashesMD take care of your lashes whilst you sleep.

This company offers an Anti-shine, HD make-up primer that not only moisturizes and protects with its Aloe formula but controls production of oil. Nurturing Force HD primer is a natural, paraben free, silicone free product that does not test on animals! This is a professional grade product is great if you have a shiny complexion that needs a little control and is certainly fantastic to use in the humidity filled days of New York summer.

Now these are fantastic products! We all worry about germs and bacteria on our hands but what about on our make-up? Even if we are the only ones that touch our make-up and brushes germs and bacteria can easily build up. Beauty So Clean offers clinically proven products that can be sprayed on your make-up to kill germs and bacteria with out altering its formula. In just 10 seconds your make-up is sanitized! According to BeautySoClean’s website common bacteria in make-up can include:
Staphylococcus Aureus is a group of bacteria that can cause a multitude of diseases because of infection of various tissues of the body. Staphylococcus is more familiarly known as Staph (pronounced “staff”)
Pseudomonas Aeruginosa is an opportunistic bacterium that lives in soil, water, and even in environments like hot tubs and on cosmetic items
Escherichia coli (commonly abbreviated E. coli) – is the name of a germ or bacterium that lives in the digestive tracts of humans and animals.
Now if that is not enough to get you to think about sanitizing your make-up and brushes I don’t know what else to say?! I love this product! The sprays come in a variety of different sizes including lipstick wipes and travel size. I sanitize my make-up with these products every day and make sure to give a good spritz to my brushes and make-up when working on clients!
