After a year hiatus The Makeup Show Orlando is back again at the Hyatt Regency Orlando 981 International Dr!  For a quick refresher on my experience from last year click here. So many new products launching at this show and so many deals you'll want to know about upfront.  Check out some of the discounts:

Dermaflage: Launching fastFX- the fastest and easiest way to create dimensional injuries  Emmy award winner Melissa Street will be doing tutorials and they are offering 40% off at the show.  I'm actually really intrigued by this brand because they are used by makeup artists and medical professionals.

Premier Orlando 2012

If you aren't familiar with the Premier Orlando it is one of the largest expos for beauty professionals.  This includes, hair, skincare and nails with hundreds of vendors.  This is the best place to stock up on essentials for your kit as most of the products are at a discount.  There are also some educational workshops but some of the best in the industry that you are able to take. You really need to have a game plan when you attend because there is so much going on at one time!  This is my second time attending but I was only able to go to one day for a couple of hours.  Last year I almost lost my mind and bought a lot of unnecessary things for my makeup kit.  Things that are still perfectly packaged and untouched!  So this year I was only buying things I actually needed. I also got the opportunity to take a class by the amazing James Vincent titled "Kit and Makeup Brushes 101".  He basically just went over how to minimize your kit but maximize your results! He made me realize I really need to consolidate my kit.  His was so small but yet so effective! I really learned a lot! I wanted to take Danessa Myrick's class but I wasn't able to such I just peeped in really quick.  I also got to see Derek J from Real Houswives of Atlanta and Hair Battle Spectacular, Tabatha Coffey from Tabatha's Salon Takeover.

While there I met up with Kim, Brittany, Courtney, Cristina and Safia! I only bought a couple brushes, disposable lip and mascara wands from Crown Brush and a Steel Palette from Nigels Beauty Emporium. I did good!  If you have never been to Premier is definitely worth checking out next year!
