If you don't know what a beauty or hair/makeup show convention let me explain it this way. You're in a room filled with beauty products such as MAC, Paul Mitchell, Makeup For Ever, and Bobbi Brown. Everything has a special show price well below the retail value. There are different stages with multiple classes throughout the day teaching about techniques, brands, and products. Yes you've died and gone to girl world! LOL!
I wanted to take a few pictures to document my adventure to my first California beauty show and share that with you to see the fun things we got to do!
This is my family friend Kirra who went with us (my husband also went and took the picture for us).
How amazing is this face makeup? There are booths all around demonstrating their techniques along with different product lines. This is one of my favorites.
This is a glitter brand that has amazing pigmentation and an adorable sales rep!
Of corse MAC Pro was there demonstrating their body paints and other things, as well as this gorgeous mural collaborated by all their makeup artists.
We loves this whimsical body paint artist and her model! She was painting a choker collar when we went by.
BonBliss is a super chic new hand exfolient/lotion product that exfoliates and acts as a lotion so you don't need to use lotion! The super soft feel after your rinse the scrub off makeup your hands feel kissable soft, and the lotion feel lasts for 4 hours! We loved this product and Kirra went home with a few tins!
Above and below is the Anastasia Beverly Hills booth. I got a pro brow palette with every color I could need. And how cute is sales rep? Her makeup so was gorgeous!
Kirra found these awesome lipstick tattoos called Violent Lips. Just like a tattoo these lips last for 4-6 hours and you can eat/drink with them. She got red, pink, and hot pink with white polkadots. They also have a few eyeshadow tattoos like the American flag pictured below.
At every hair show there is always jewelry blinged out with makeup products or hair shears. Too fun!
Above and below are more theatrical makeup jobs that some talented theatrical artists showcased. Just like the movies, we got to see and experience what it takes to create these live masterpieces.
I FINALLY found a booth that carried Red Cherry Lashes. I've always wanted to purchase some of these for my bridal makeup kit, but water to see them in person before I did. I really liked their assortment and got 10 different kinds.
Above all we had fun looking, touching, testing, smelling, playing, experiencing all the new and fun stuff at every booth. I can't wait for the next show that South California puts on! You can see some of the fun things I purchased in me upcoming videos. As well as the lashes!
