Beauty Expo Melbourne 2017- Round Up

Last weekend (March 25th & 26th) I attended Beauty Expo Melbourne, this is it’s first year under that title, it was formally called Salon Melbourne.

I attended as media to watch some of the sessions on offer in the different Hubs, learn about some new and exciting brands (and network with a few) and visit some old favourites.

This will be a quick round up of Beauty Expo Melbourne, but I will explore some of the brands further in separate posts in coming weeks, but more on that a little later.

After watching a couple of the Makeup sessions at the Makeup Hub, I walked around the exhibition floor a little more. During this time I networked with a few of the brand owners.

Day 2- Beauty Expo Melbourne

On the second day of the Expo I didn’t stay as long because I had already visited most of the booths on the first day. I did however stay for a couple of the sessions at the Makeup Hub once again.

After I watched Michael Huxley at the Makeup Hub, it was time for Building Your Bridal Business with Rae Morris. I am not a makeup artist, let alone a wedding MUA, but it was an interesting session and I got some great makeup application tips from it.

I was excited to meet Rae at her booth afterwards and get my copy of her Makeup Masterclass book signed and a photo with her.

Over all I enjoyed my time at Beauty Expo Melbourne 2017! I would love to attend again next year.

Some of the brands that interested me and will be featured over the next few weeks: Pure Nut, Divine skincare, SNS Nails, Cuccio Pro and Young Nails (SlickPour)

*Beauty Expo Melbourne is a Trade only event and is not open to the general public, I attended as Media.

New: 1000 Hour Lashes Day to night packs

Spring is my favourite season in terms of fashion and beauty and while natural makeup looks are great, sometimes you just want to be a little more adventurous…with *1000 hour lashes day to night packs, you can go from a day to night look with just a change of your lashes (and a tweak of your makeup).

For the makeup looks below, I used the Exotic black pack.

1000 Hour lashes Day look
1000 hour lashesThe day lashes in the *Exotic black style are half lashes, I love this because they are much easier to apply and that aren’t too extreme for daytime wear.

Products:
Base- Maybeline Dream Pure BB cream in ‘Light’
Blush- Bourjois Aqua Blush in ’04 berry nice’
Eyes- NYX jumbo eye pencil in ‘Yogurt’, Models Prefer Infinite colour eye pencil in ‘nude appeal’ (inner corners), Boe beauty liquid liner, Rimmel waterproof Wonder’full mascara in ‘001 black’
Brows- Maybelline Browsatin in ‘medium brown’
Lips- Australis Velourlips in ‘full moon-stone’ (as a base) and MAC Viva Glam ‘Ariana Grande 2’

1000 hour lashes

1000 Hour lashes Night look
1000 hour lashes Products:
Base- Rimmel lasting finish foundation in ‘010 light porcelain’
Blush- Boe beauty blush powder in ‘#91 pink godess’
Eyes- Rimmel magnif’eyes in ‘002 kissed by a rose gold’ (eye shadow all over the lid), Rimmel Magnif’eyes in ‘001 Black to blacks’ (kohl kajal in the outer corners), Rimmel colour precise eyeliner in ‘001 black’
Brows- Maybelline Browsatin in ‘medium brown’
Lips- Smashbox X Lilly Singh always on liquid lipstick in ‘Bawse’

1000 Hour lashes Day to Night packs

There are two styles to chose from, *Exotic Black for more subtle looking lashes and *Daring Twist for more dramatic looks.

Both packs are reusable, waterproof and include adhesive lash glue

They retail for $15.99 per pack

Do you like to wear false lashes or do you prefer just your own lashes with a coat of mascara?

Hope you’ve been having a great week!
