PHAMExpo 2016 was a success!
This is the look that I went with for PHAMExpo 2016 (the famous car selfie on the way there).
I even wore my Crimes of Beauty Makeup Junkie shirt.
In the line about to go in and do some serious damage.
My bestie talked me in to standing on the window ledge to take a selfie and get the #PHAMExpo sign in the background.
Taking a picture on the way in against this awesome background (didn't know I was about to go from having money to being broke in less than 3 hours).
They let us go in early a little after 9am which was extremely exciting (less time to cook in the hot sun while waiting impatiently in line).
We met some amazing ladies while waiting in line :)
We headed first towards Lime Crime (first booth that caught my eye and there was no line, yay!)
I picked up a couple of goodies and stop for another backdrop picture (pretty much one of the last pictures I took, too distracted by makeup.
If you have never been to a makeup convention/show it might be a little hard to understand, but honestly once you step inside you are swept up in this fast paced whirlwind and so many things are going on at once. You instantly turn on autopilot and go where the makeup leads you. It's so exciting and I wouldn't want it any other way. I feel like I am in my element.
We checked out some artistry and than it was back to focusing on our mission, to acquire more makeup quickly.
We stopped by ChicStudios to get some complementary glitter lips, uh yes please!

The aftermath, leaving with $38 to your name (actually, the first time I have walked away from a makeup show with money to my name.
What the damage looked like when I got home.
