There are some events we get excited about every year — think Fashion Week, the holiday season (already starting our beauty wish lists) and the Indie Beauty Expo. The latter, which we haven’t stopped daydreaming about since we attended it a few weeks ago, is an event every makeup lover should add to their beauty bucket list. Hundreds of up-and-coming Indie beauty brands gathered in one location to share (and sell!) their best products, chat with makeup lovers and tell the stories behind the brands — which are often both inspiring and enlightening. You might just leave wanting to kickstart a brand of your own.
