I've been to many trade shows in the past (WSA, MAGIC, Project, etc. ) when I worked for a major online shoe retailer, but this was my very first beauty industry show. And I have to say, I had a lot of fun at The Makeup Show LA! Maybe it was because of my love of all things makeup, or maybe it was because I was surrounded by so much creativity ... I don't know but either way I know I'll be back next year!
