I’ve never been to The Makeup Show before but I have been to other trade shows. Since this show is coming to Orlando for the first time I figured I would give some helpful tips on how to be prepared!
#1 HAVE A BUDGET! – Hello if you love makeup you could run the risk of spending ALLLL of your money on all the cool makeup toys that will be there. Think about what you need and will get the most use of. You don’t want to dish out money for things that are just going to collect dust (I’m speaking from personal experience..lol). If you have a budget it can help you from spending your rent money! Check the website and see if your favorite vendors are showcasing and map out the order of which booths you want to hit up first.
#2 HAVE A GAME PLAN!- There are a lot of classes and work shops to take to take your artistry to the next level. Make sure you check out the site before hand that way you can ensure that you take all the classes you are interested in. No one wants to miss an opportunity of being educated from celebrity artists currently working in the industry!
#3 BRING A FRIEND!- This is an awesome opportunity and event, share the love with a friend! Plus you need someone to take pictures of you for instagram duh!
