I’ve had a few weeks to come down from the high that was The Makeup Show 2016. Good times, y’all. Good times. I not only did a few things that scared me, but I had much needed time with my girls, ate some REALLY good food and just enjoyed a few days without washing dishes.
You’re laughing but shoot, man. Mom life is mostly of me washing dish after dish every single day. Instead of rambling about the show in its entirety, I’ll just highlight a few of the brands that I was so glad to see. Can we say YAY to Black-owned?!
A little glance at the show. It was busyyyy!
Now now, buttercups…don’t be all uptight over my pride and adoration for James Vincent and his team for providing a space for brands of all backgrounds to shine. This is a big deal. The reality is this – you don’t see a lot of Black-owned cosmetic lines. You just don’t. I can make many assumptions as to why this is but when I do see Black-owned beauty lines, you better believe that I’m investigating and supporting. I’m just so grateful to see people that look like me offer cosmetics at such a huge trade show.
