Last weekend the United Makeup Artist Expo took place in Business Design Centre in Islington, London (http://www.umae.co.uk/). Of course I couldn’t miss the opportunity of visiting the place full of different makeup professionals, seminars, brands and of course discounts!
I attended the event on Saturday and was able to see seminars of an amazing director of makeup artistry MAC Cosmetics UK- Terry Barber (modern take to goth makeup), Ben Nye himself with the help of makeup artist Paul Garcia and (modern 1920′s colorful look) a full of energy and optimism Sian Richards, who designed and produced a company called The London Brush Company (natural blended and beautiful makeup). All of them were so different but so inspiring! There were so much more seminars to attend but unfortunatelly I wasn’t able to…
The fun part was browsing around and communicating with the atendees and playing with colors! There was some awesome deals so I went wild purchasing Ben Nye cosmetics, as well as I was able to swatch OCC Lip Tars and had to get a black one and see so many undertalked brush companies…I would have purchased so much more brushes, but I am waiting for the Sigma brushes to come, so I had to resist
I came home with a full bag of goodies and now cannot wait to try them out!
