The Makeup Show Korres

Korres was one of the first stations that I visited and while I was there I picked up some makeup removing wipes. It’s my first time trying this product so I will let you know how they work.

These were just a sample of the amazing booths that we showing at The Makeup show. This is certainly a MUST attend event for all professionals in the beauty industry. I was able to sample quite a few products and purchase some as well. I even picked up a complete set of makeup brushes which I cannot wait to try out. Many of the booths provided take home samples so that you can try their products at home, which is nice because really how many products can you test out in one day? I loved every second of it,  swear I died and went to makeup heaven!
