Ready to kiss 💋 Chicago “Hello” again! I’ve so MISSED this fabulous part of the country. ✈️
I’m guest speaking and educating at the International Esthetics Cosmetics & Spa show. I’ll also be attending other classes and shopping the massive show floor! This year the show will be near O’Hare airport at a Convention Ctr there.
Always a fabulous show. And will be attending America’s Beauty Show in the same convention center which is a hair show with a combination of beauty, skin and nails!
So come back for more and I’ll be sharing all things beauty from the show floor!
We beauty professionals and speakers have been waiting for over a year and half to reconnect with each other,educate and see what’s trending and new! The show did go on and I could not be BE ANY HAPPIER!
The International Esthetics Cosmetics and Spa Conference was wonderful! My class went well. I was thrilled with all the beautiful faces looking to learn all I had to share with them too!
Yes, there was social distancing but we did not have to wear a face mask 😷 while educating. The show attendees had the option if vaccinated they did not have to wear a mask. There were sanitation stations and there was mindful social distancing. Attendance was UP considering what we have been through. Lines to shop 🛍 were long but worth the wait. I can’t believe the crowds of beauty PROS and spa and salon owners so many happy faces.
It was wonderful to be out and about and to TRAVEL on an airplane again. Seeing lots of people was great and Delta Airlines took good care of me! Chatting with strangers and and seeing SMILING FACES without face covers and masks was beyond joyous.
It was HOT and steamy in beautiful Las Vegas and I got a chance to work and play!!! One day it was actually 116 degrees.
Networking at it’s finest! Like a GIANT COCKTAIL PARTY! The IECSC show even treated us to a cocktail 🍸 or other libations to toast and welcome us back!
Here is a list of what I discovered on that’s Trending and NEW! Some I predicted and knew but some trends I saw on the show floor.
Skin care is HOT! It is even more in than makeup! We got to see the latest in action with LIVE demos on the show floor.
Facial embellishments were a thing and step aside tattoos and piercings. Pearls,colorful stencils,flowers and bold eye designs.
Wellness is a MUST in our lives. We must take better care of ourselves!
“Caked on” made up faces are NOT happening. Makeup is heading softer and pretty is back.
Brows and lashes are cared for with serums of gold. Brow laminations are hot.
Lash Lifts are still in.
False Lashes depending on who you speak to are out but faux lash companies are still selling. All kinds of lashes and COLORS!
OVER done and over the top contouring is OUT!
Lip plumpers are still coveted alongside a gorgeous lipgloss or 💄 lipstick.
Shimmery GLOWY skin is still with us.
Dermaplaning is still hot!
Concealing the entire face with concealer, highlighters and foundation is not in.
Tinted shampoos in all colors too!
Root Powder coverups in all HUES!
HAIR YOU WEAR and take off …faux bangs,pony’s and more are not going away.
Bright shiny glass like skin for the hair.
💅 Nails are fresh and natural but also pointed and embellished and long!
Facial Masks reign supreme! ALL kinds of treatments,smell and feel amazing!
Celebrities weren’t the only ones on the Las Vegas Strip.
I like all the cute and practical cosmetic bags on the market. I own so many! And my favorites all have lips 💋 on them! But they really are just that! Cute!
There’s a new kid on the beauty block and it’s amazing! Not just for professional makeup artists like me! Although coveted by them. But this bag is made for YOU too!
It is an anti-microbial bag that protects and keeps your beauty 💄 and skin care and makeup brushes clean and you safer!
A healthy cosmetic bag! Who knew?
The above cosmetic bag is chic but the SterileLight bag is better!
The bag also comes with an anti microbial mat included.
If you do makeup, travel for your work, fly on airplanes ✈️ the mat is everything too! It protects your makeup and brushes at the hotel. You can even use it on your tray table on an airplane. You can never be too careful or clean.
To all my followers who are not in the SPA or beauty business.Can you show me and raise your hands here by posting a reply?
I want to share some awesome beauty secrets with you.
To all my followers in the SPA and beauty business:
The International Esthetics Cosmetics and Spa Conference in the one and only NYC and the International Beauty Show have come and gone.But they were both cancelled before it even began. The Governor declared the city that never sleeps a state of emergency. This Covid-19 virus is taking a toll on all our lives and for the sake of attendees, vendors and educators health … it was best for the company to cancel the show.
It was going to be an awesome conference. The massive show floor. The classes from an amazing array of educators!
I so wanted to bring the best of skin and beauty and all that’s NEW back to you!
But the FABULOUS good news they are rescheduling the show for 2021!!!

My class for spa and beauty professionals is all about Color and the influence it has on our life and our clients faces and feelings. I am mad about color in decor, makeup, fashion and more! It makes me so HAPPY!
I used to wear only brown and black. NO COLOR. As a NORTHERNER that is all I knew. New Yorker’s live in black. I love black as well.
If you’re a beauty professional like a makeup artist or spa owner your team will love my class. I’ll also share what’s trending, makeup techniques & color consults and what you should consider carrying in your business.
I so looking forward to doing my class. I am so in love ❤️ with color!
My class is all about COLOR and how to get your client to step outside the box and show her how she can color her world. Color is emotional too. And color can change someone’s mood and make her happier too!
