The Makeup Show NYC

The Metropolitan Pavilion played host for the Makeup Show NYC on May 13-14, 2012. For the past six years, the show has brought together the best of the Makeup industry as it continues to grow and deliver the largest professional only driven beauty event in NYC-the global epicenter of beauty and fashion.

Top makeup artists and professional driven companies showcased their newest products and techniques by presenting seminars, forums, and hands-on workshops, from trend casting, to working with Hi Def , painting with makeup, exploring the power of color, glimmer body art, special effects makeup, airbrushing and creating looks with liquid metals, there was something of interest to everyone.

My mission was to find three favorite things for our readers……. A favorite makeup, something multi-purpose and a tool.

Here is my favorite makeup find.

Coming into summer season in NYC normally means, hazy, hot and humid! Couple the temperatures with dressy events such as weddings, and I was on the search for something that would last. Eye makeup with staying power was definitely on my list. I love eye pencils, but normally find they don’t sharpen easily, wasting most of the pencil. Liquids, not as easily to apply, carry around and dry out quickly. I have been very happy with my find of Cailyn, and their Line-Fix Gel Eyeliner.

Cailyn Line-Fix Gel Eyeliner ( is oil-free, pigment-rich gel eyeliner, made in the USA that is waterproof, smudge-free for 24 hours. It glides on smoothly, and precisely, and then quickly dries down (like in a minute). It comes in 5 colors; black, blue, brown, green and chocolate. You can blend the liners with shadows and shimmering color powders to create fun magical colored eyeliners. Great packaging, it has a built in brush on the cap, making it easier to carry around and keep it clean!
