The International Esthetics Cosmetics and Spa Conference always in the winter and right before spring.
It was cold weather outside (snow did not come our way although it threatens to) but a fabulous show inside this year.
It felt like the good old beauty show days. You know before Covid arrived! There were miles of aisles of skin care some tried and true brands like Repechage and FarmHouseFresh and many NEW brands have emerged. I could hardly get through the aisles as it was so crowded. It’s like Fashion Week but for beauty & skin professionals.
I taught a makeup class that was teaching the beauty professional makeup and skincare needs Just for MEN. The everyday guy!
Make-up Artists and esthetician’s from around the world 🌎 attend this PRO, beauty and spa business owners allowed only show. Our classes are filled with eager to learn attendees. They come to be inspired, learn and best of all shop the massive show floor.
As I quickly discovered at the show and back home in New York City, Spring into summer 2023 is all about healthy skin. And same goes for fashion too. Natural makeup allowing your skin to shine through and on the other side of the natural makeup rainbow 🌈 are some pretty bold hues. You can be soft and pretty one day and bold and beautiful the next. It all depends upon your mood.
I will design and show my clients a more natural look with a touch of pink, gold and rose gold metallics.
I will also encourage them to tone down ALL those steps to their skin care regime. Some girls and women are using so many products that I think their skin is getting so confused! Too many choices and they think they need it all. But they don’t.
“Fluffy” Brows are in! Microblading is in! Lip Blushing is in!
Waxing every part of the body seems to be in.
Tattoos are a part of a woman and man’s lifestyle now it seems more then ever! While it’s never been for me it has captured and attracted women, men and teens!
Permanent Makeup like “Lip Blushing” is hot right now over Botox. It’s amazing what it can do for a woman’s lips!
“Self-care” is on the rise. Finally we are taking the time to take better care of ourselves and try new things. Covid had something to do with that as we were forced to be home for a bit. I think that was the only good part about it.
So, think about your look for Spring or if you’re a beauty Pro what looks you want to show and create for your clients.
Spring is all about trying new things. Bloom 🍃 on into a new season of our lives!!
