The Makeup Show Dallas

A while back I received an email offering me a press pass and a VIP blogger ticket to something called The Makeup Show. Now two things one I hear the word makeup and immediately jump up. Secondly I had no idea what this event was. After doing some research and finding out it’s the largest makeup show for artists, youtubers, stylists, bloggers etc in the country I was so in. It happened to be taking place at a hotel really close to our house and I also heard the words swag bag. As bloggers no words are sweeter to the ears.

Our swag bags

 

 

I must say I am not a makeup artist, I am not a stylist, however I am a blogger who sometimes blogs about beauty products and just loves MAKEUP!!!!

Friday I went to the VIP event of about 30 Youtubers, makeup artists and bloggers. It was a blast. I learned a ton about products and event received a very cool 30th anniversary Makeupforever gift bag with signatures of all these amazing makeup artists. Some who have won academy awards.

Saturday Andrew made me rest all day so Sunday morning I went back to the even to shop. Oh yes I shopped. Nars, Stila, Makeupforever, CrownBrush, Jouer, Smashbox, and more. I had a blast shopping and meeting so many cool people and networking my little butt off.

My haul and the things in my swag bag

Waiting to get some NARS goodies

 

 

I got quite the haul but the best part about it was it was all discounted like crazy. I am talking up to 70% off some things.

It was such a cool opportunity and while I was leaving the hotel Sunday I happened to see the New Orleans Saints football team who were in town to play Dallas yesterday. So there’s that!

The Makeup Show was so fun and I really hope I can go again next year!

Thanks for inviting me!!!

 

Disclosure: I was given a Press Pass and VIP pass to the event but was not obligated in any way to promote it. I just had a really fabulous time and wanted to share my experience.

    So jealous that you got to do something like this! 🙂 I must agree–press passes and media swag are pretty much the most awesome things in the world. (I work for several Charleston publications in addition to blogging, but I STILL get excited every time I get to wear a press badge!!).
