I’m happy to share that I’m covering THE MAKEUP SHOW ORLANDO this year! I’m thrilled – the last one I went to, The Makeup Show NYC, was amazing. It was also my first event as a blogger. This time around, I know a lot better about covering events, and what might be of interest to you, the reader!

I hadn’t really planned to do this, but I scheduled a visit to my best friend, who lives in the Orlando area, the weekend after the show. Someone said that it’s ashame I wouldn’t be there the weekend before, for The Makeup Show Orlando, and I decided what the heck? I looked into it. I have the vacation time, and I haven’t been to Florida to see Cat in ages, and I’d love to see The Makeup Show Orlando…SO, I extended my trip, and I’ll be in Florida the entire week, and covering the show!

Basically, beauty brands and top makeup artists will be sharing their newest products and beauty secrets – it’s happening on November 4 and 5.
