The 2021 Makeup Show Had a Triumphant Return to NYC
After a yearlong hiatus, The Makeup Show NYC was the first show back in NYC since 2019! This year there were over 60 brands, more than 50 educational sessions on 6 stages, and over 2,000 vaccinated attendees came from all over the world. This year, although smaller than usual due to the pandemic, was a hopeful reminder that we are slowly but surely coming back to normal life – and it is only up from here!
This year The Makeup Show featured an incredible array of artists and educators. Mimi Choi took over the Main Stage and created one of her unique illusionist looks, turning her model from a blank canvas into "GLITCH".
Artists like J. Vargas and Michaela Wareibi created amazing full-body works of art. James Vincent, Danessa Myricks, Daniel Martin, Michela Wariebi, & Matin Maulawizada came together to hold space for a tough but necessary conversation about the accountability and inclusion that needs to be addressed in the beauty community. These and so many more of the best artists and teachers in the beauty industry came together to share their wisdom on technique, artistry, and business/marketing.
Over 60 of the best brands in the industry come to share their latest products with our buyers and attendees. Danessa Myricks was in house launching her Infinite Chrome Gemstone Collection Kits, featuring 10 new Multi-Chrome micro-pencils and five new shades of her Twin Flames liquid shadow, along with brands such as Alcone Company, Glamcor Global, Perfect Corp, and so many more.
This was also the second year having the Danessa Myricks International Stage, featuring international artists such as Marika D'Auteuil and Yvonne MacInnis from Canada, Pepe Gutierrez from Mexico, and Michela Wariebi from Liberia. They each created uniquely stunning looks, such as Yvonne's birdcage look, and Michela's incredible makeup and body art look
The 3rd annual sold out Sunset Beauty Brunch was back by popular demand with the first ever "In the Spotlight" session, where Daniel Scott and Josh Saviano joined Daniel Martin and James Vincent on stage to discuss monetizing artistry and planning for long term goals. Over 200 VIP attendees to enjoy this late afternoon brunch turned cocktail party where attendees and artists got to mingle in a more intimate setting and get excited about the weekend ahead.
This was also the second show hosting an Artists United session with Danessa Myricks and Marika D'Auteuil. They both demonstrated their signature styles, Marika creating a brilliantly creative and colorful look, while Danessa exhibited her mastery over perfecting complexion with color and texture.
Attendees received a gift bag valued at over $500. Overall, this was an amazing weekend that celebrated the revival of The Makeup Show NYC in an incredible way by bringing students, artists, and buyers all together, finally back at live event, and look forward to even more amazing shows in the future.
