The Makeup Show LA 2016

It’s time we do our shopping research now that we are less than a month away from The Makeup Show LA.  If you’ve ever attended a trade show you know how important it is to plan your day.  Unlike IMATS, The Makeup Show LA is geared for professionals in the makeup industry.  Most, if not all the exhibitors offer incredible sales, pro-discounts and new product launches.

The show takes place at the California Market Center, LA on March 19-20th.

Tickets are available for both days (here).

I highly recommend making a shopping list prior to the event since there are almost 60 vendors attending the show.  Take your time going through your kit for items you need to restock.  Also, this is a wonderful opportunity to grab items that are normally more expensive or less accessible.  After you’ve gathered a shopping list, visit each social media site for additional deals or special releases.   When making my list, I categorize them into three groups: Items I need to restock, new product launches and products I’ve been curious to try.

  Last but not least, it’s important to map out each booth’s location.  This might seem dramatic, but if you’ve ever attended a makeup show, you know how easy it is to completely miss a brand you were eager to visit.  For a PDF of the official map, click (here).

 Yes preparing to attend the show takes time, but it’s the best way to ensure your day is flawless.  I’ve even seen some people show up to The Makeup Show with a customized version of the map.

With that being said, which booths will you visit at The Makeup Show LA?

I’d love to hear your shopping list!
