When it comes to makeup, I am definitely on the lookout for some new favorites. I decided to attend The Makeup Show for the first time this year. Geared toward makeup professionals, there were lots of free demos and opportunities to further your product knowledge and pick up a few tips from the masters of makeup. Among them were Ashanta Shariff, James Vincent, and Orlando Santiago. I'm quite satisfied with this haul. I went out of my comfort zone and went with some brands that I've never used before.
