We had to help with "set up" so I was there Friday.
|LA Splash booth across from E.P|
|Inglot Cosmetics getting set-up|
|This is the beginning of the line!!!!|
If you think the line was bad it was BANANAS inside!!!! OK, so when I got upstairs, everyone had their posts and I immediately started to work. I was asked to keep in charge of everyone who signed a consent form. Eve Pearl gives a complimentary make over, but one must sign a consent form agreeing to it prior. The part that gets tricky is that each client gets a photo shoot for a "before and after" and its emailed to the client. So many people and so many photo shoots and at the end of the day a BIG SCRAMBLE of who is who. Therefore, I started to work a system by writing a small description of the client and working with the photographer to get the photo ID's (before & after). I would write this info on each form. Eve Pearl's booth was CRAZY that I had to form a line for those who were getting a makeover. The wait was for 15-30 minutes. By mid day, I began to do makeovers. At times, when I was working with the consent forms my fingers would each to pick up a brush, lol. After a few hours, I saw Koren from EnKore on YouTube and he was ALONE, which was UNBELIEVABLE. As I took my break, I went to greet him and took a photo. Koren is a Master Instructor and he's just awesome!! Check out his YT channel -
After meet & greet (so I thought), I began to shop. I really wanted to check out Inglot but they must have been the most busiest company at the show!!!! So I stopped at Mehron, which is one of my favorite stores....
After making my purchase, Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics (O.C.C) was next to Mehron and I have NEVER tried there products so I walked over. I knew Lauren aka 'QueenofBlening' was going to be there and she gave a review of there NEW Lip Tars so I went to check that out. As I walked away, guess who I saw...
|Lauren and Me|
She was so sweet!!!
So after taking this picture, I saw another YouTube guru and as I approached him - it was Josh aka 'Petrilude'
Check out his YT channel - http://www.youtube.com/user/petrilude
I was a little surprised because for some reason I thought he was taller, but he was also sweet.
|Temptu MUA who I met during my waltz'n around came to visit E.P's Booth. She was so sweet!!!|
This model got a complete body paint over with designs of Batman and Superman on his back. It was hot!!!!
Sunday, April 10 - last day of the show and it was another crazy day. I immediately noticed that many people brought their children including YOUNG children. I was so surprised how well many of them behaved (toddlers). I must say today was even more busier than Saturday. I decided to continue to work with consent forms again because I had a bit fun with it. Most of the day, I spent working on the floor so I got a chance to meet & greet many YT gurus--whoohooo!!! So who else I saw....
Tatiana aka 'Beatfacehoney'
|She's so cute and was also sweet!!|
Nikkie aka 'Nikkie' (LOL)
Now, meeting Nikki really BLEW me away cause I would have never imagined that she was SO TALL!!! She was such a sweetie!!!
Nini aka 'Niniluvsmakeup'
Nini was such a sweetheart!! She does some wonders with the color 'Blue' (right color for her too).
Last, I was greatly happy to have met Tate. He was one of the finalist on Syfi's show 'Face Off.'
