New York Beauty Spree!
If you follow me on Instagram you might have seen that I was in New York recently to be a keynote speaker at IMATS (International Makeup Artist Tradeshow). It was great to meet so many other artists and chat makeup all day. Naturally I also used the trip as an opportunity to stock up on some of my Stateside beauty favourites, as well a few new things I’ve been meaning to try. My shopping trip took me from strictly pro, to department store to drugstore...
