Every year, cosmetics experts come together at the Metropolitan Pavilion in Chelsea for The Makeup Show, an industry-wide exhibit filled with product launches and workshops. And every year, we wish it was open to the public—after all, you don't need a cosmetology license to enjoy playing with makeup.
Well, this year our secret, fervid, highly pigmented hopes have come true. For its seventh annual New York appearance, The Makeup Show will be hosting a pop-up shop open to both consumers and pros. Running this Friday and Saturday, the pop-up will carry brands like Stila, OCC Makeup, and NARS at prices usually reserved for insiders. Pick up tickets for $20 a person on their website, and while you're at the show, keep an eye out for appearances by celebrity makeup artists like Eve Pearl, James Vincent, and Orlando Santiago.
Update: The original line-up has changed a bit since the invitations went out. NARS won't be there, but Kevyn Aucoin will be. And instead of Eve Pearl, Joanna Schlip will make an appearance.
