Heading to the Fashion Capitol …New York City!

Things have changed so much since the pandemic began. Men are diving into the beauty pond and has awakened them to take better care of themselves. Self-care is now becoming a part of their lives.

I’m getting ready to guest speak and explore all things beauty and fashion. It takes a lot to put a class topic and concept together but I love what I do. This year my topic is on male makeup and skin care.

It’s always a new adventure working and playing in New York City. It fuels your creativity and motivates you like no other city. The hustle and bustle is the heart of the city. The city truly never sleeps!

Are you a makeup artist, esthetician, plastic surgeon,dermatologist, own a spa or medical spa?

This show is a MUST attend for you!

See you in the one and only New ❤️ York City!

Beauty Haul

I have been working and playing in my beauty haul from the IECSC show from New York City a few weeks ago. The show was so awesome and so were the classes and booths!!!

People …you know the beauty PROS,spa and salon owners filled the floor and were excited like me to explore!

SKIN-CARE ruled the show floor. Makeup was there but skin care ruled.

Bonblissity is the IT girl on the show floor for a updated mani and pedi or self care at home. I was lured over to take part in a demo where they shared how simple and wonderful your hands can look in a flash.

The owner placed a colorful tiny sugar like cube in my hands. Next, they had me dip my hands in a bowl of warm water and rub the cube into my palms and tops of my hands and nail beds. OH MY! What an aromatic and exfoliating high!

Next, I felt the skin softening and skin loving ingredients do their magic. After I did this a few minutes he rinsed my hands. I WAS ABSOLUTLEY AMAZED at the way my skin felt. I could only imagine how luxurious it would feel on my feet in a pedicure at home or at the spa or salon.

They come in a variety of scents:

Lemongrass,Satsuma,Brown Sugar,Lavender,Ocean Mist and more. GREAT item to retail in your spa or nail salon if you are a business owner.

The candy scrub can also be used on the feet at home it in your spa or mail salon.

Face masks, masks and sheet masks galoreKBeauty (Korean Beauty) IS alive and kicking.

There were so many face masks I have yet to try. Floral based like rose,plant-based like aloe,veggie based like tomatoes and even spice based Tumeric from our kitchen was infused in a sheet mask.

I had to buy one of everything to test drive. Tonight after a stressful week I am going to enjoy the aromatherapy based lavender sheet mask.

Esthemax had a fabulous booth. The team was dressed alike in the hottest pant suit style and they were PACKED! If you know the infamous Jelly Masks you’ll flip over the new additions I found. Next time you go to a spa or salon ask them if they do this mask in their face or body protocol. AMAZING. Your skin will glow like you never knew it could. Once you have one of these facial treatment masks for face (and body) you’ll want them even more. Your makeup will glide on like butter on a hot biscuit.

FarmHouse Fresh Goods ALWAYS delivers and they continue to bring it for body and now face and lip care. There booth had this giant Selfie backdrop that I could not resist taking a picture of. I have grown to love all their body products. Especially Oprah’s favorite Honey 🍯 Heel Glaze and the infamous Whoopie Cream hand and body lotion.

These are just a few of the things I am test driving, swiping, sniffing and enjoying. Next beauty stop is Chicago stay tuned for more!

The show…

It was so WONDERFUL to be back in New York City again! I so love my ❤️❤️❤️ New York! I used to work and play in the city daily.

It was also great to educate at the International Esthetics Cosmetics and SPA Conference again!

The show is BACK and did go on and I had an awesome time! The pandemic did not rain on our spirit and parade. All the show attendees made the city even prettier! 😎

They were all dolled up and read to learn,shop and rock! (Face masks were optional)

It was also alongside the iconic International BEAUTY Show! So we got to see two shows.

My Makeup 💄 Workshop went well.

I taught a class on The Power of Makeup Consultations and MAKEUP Lessons. Not just an application. It is such and important service to offer. I like to make women look like themselves ONLY better and FEEL it too! I don’t think you have to use a lot of it either.

People came from all over the USA and the globe. It was so nice to have face to face connections actually touch a face on stage again.

There were all kinds of classes for spa and salons to take. From skin,makeup,waxing and social media,marketing and more! Did I mention…Anal bleaching? It is STILL all the rage.

The massive show floor was FILLED with fabulous vendors. I discovered some awesome products I can’t wait to share with you. The longest line I saw was for the Hydro jelly and jelly masks. So many masks so many to choose from. They had one for every skin need. Next time you are looking for a facial ask the receptionist or esthetician for one. Or if they have them as part of the facial protocol. They are also used on the neck and areas of the body. I’ll share one with you on Instagram and Tik Tok soon.

SO TIRED. Travel and running around the city to soak in the the show floor and NYC is exhausting. Having to get back in the groove to work back in Florida. I finally got to unpack my luggage a week after my trip. I took more pictures of the show but for some reason WordPress is not helping me post them at this time. In the meantime I will get caught up with my family,work and life and stay tuned for more.

Next stop…CHICAGO for the International Esthetics Cosmetics and SPA Conference. IF you’re a PRO you gotta go!

Wow! What a week!

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!!!

Stay tuned for INFORMATION  and dates and more.

It is the start of …the show season!

The show season has begun and I just returned from educating at the International Esthetics Cosmetics and SPA show in the one and only New York City. The city truly NEVER sleeps.
