Today we celebrate the beauty of lashes real and faux!
Don’t forget to condition those eyelashes of yours too. I like to use a natural D.I.Y. recipe (from your kitchen) women from the Mediterranean have shared with me. Simply wash your face,clean off ALL eye make-up and apply a sheer small coat of fresh olive oil with a Q-tip. I like to also do this by applying with a disposable mascara wand too. I use ONLY for this trick. No cross contamination with a disposable mascara want filled with mascara.
Leave on your natural lashes and either watch,TV, take a bubble bath or read a good book or a great magazine then go to sleep. DO NOT RINSE it off. It will gently hydrate those lashes while you sleep.
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 know what most of you can never get enough of … mascara!!! You just can’t stay away from it. For ME it is all about the lipstick 💄 But for those of you who want to check out a new launch. Here it is…
I love to use the original and now this on clients who have special events, brides, mothers of the brides,bridegrooms moms, newscasters,models and teens for proms.
The reason I do is it does not run. No raccoon eyes. Easy to use and removes with water 💦 and your hands and a wash cloth. You’ll see these tiny tubes coming off that’s the mascara. Not your lashes coming off. Like lash extensions without all that $ and time to do it. Just pretty lashes!
