HEALTH & BEAUTY TRADE SHOW 2010

Hi Guys!

I seem to be getting a bit more regular at this blogging bit (somewhat) cause here I am again. 

I apologise for being late with this post but I will give a run-down of what I experienced at the last Health & Beauty Trade Show 2010 held at Crowne Plaza between May 01 to 03, however, I was only able to attend one day - the opening and can talk about that.  To tell you the truth, I have always seen it advertised and noted the fact that airbrushing was also noted in the list of activities but for some reason was never inclined to go.

I can usually be found at bridal expos, so when I was invited to attend by international hairstylist - Mr. Clem Lue Yat to do makeup for his model, my interest was piqued to see what was offered and guage the crowds/audience's reactions.

Let me say that I was pleased to see the number of booths that were there, probably over forty (40) booths (if I am off in the numbers, forgive me).  There were skin lines, cosmetic lines, hair products and spas to name a couple.  As such, there was a lot of information available but the times I was on the floor, the crowd fluctuated ranging from very busy to few attendees.  I think that from a supplier of services perspective, if I were to offer classes in airbrush makeup, this would be a great vehicle to advertise but if I were looking for clients, I would focus on bridal expos.  Some pics are below.




I finally perched at Clem's booth, of course you know that he will attract attention as he is not only considered a 'master weaver' but he was one of the few actually styling a lovel model's extremely long hair in front of the patrons.  He was kind enough to let me set up and advertise my airbrush skills and pass out cards (thanks Clem!).  I did her makeup to suit her face and overall look which was slightly smokey in the entire crease and everything was airbrushed except her blush and lips.


Her foundation was OCC Skin foundation and setting powder was from my trusty Graftobian Powder Foundation Palettes.  The eyebrows were done with TEMPTUPRO AIRBROWS Kit - which I must say is very, very nice....quite blendable.  The eyeshadow colors used was DINAIR AIRBRUSH EYESHADOW in Gold & Blue and also blendable without clogging.  A great feature of the Dinair Line of airbrush makeup.

Her skin was bronzed with LUMINESSAIR Matte Bronzer around the perimeter of her face to create a glowy effect and blush was an orange tint from SACHA COSMETICS.  The final look is below.


Some really cool items on the activity list for the opening were the Hairstylist & Makeup Artist Competitions.  What I was told was that students from YTEPP compete in this competition every year, and let me tell you, from the little I did see of the Hairstyles, these students are INCREDIBLY talented.  Unfortunately, cause of my duties, I was unable to stay and view the Makeup Artist competition but if the first one was anything to use as comparison, I am certain, they would be just as great!


So after all that rambling, yes I had a good time, met some great people and would suggest that you go, to get some excellent savings as a regular citizen.  The question remains, would there be benefits as a service provider? Well there were a lot of them there so it would appear to work in their advantage but I personally prefer bridal expos.  I would only consider if I want to advertise classes, but considering the budget that will be involved in that, I am sure there is another way to advertise them.  Again, only my personal opinion!

I don't know whether it's just me or if perhaps everyone else encountering issues with
your blog. It seems like some of the written text on your posts are running off the screen.
Can somebody else please provide feedback and let me know if
this is happening to them too? This might be a problem with my web browser because I've had this happen previously. Kudos

December is such a special month of the year - quality time with family, exchanging gifts, and sumptuous food all month long.

Don't jump cold, warm up first until you break a light sweat. I am aware this seems enjoy ridiculous advice - Get real if you may possibly just flip a switch and enjoy exercise you would certainly, right.

But it's always wise to check in with a doctor before you start using a supplement regularly. My grandma can really feel vindicated at such a claim,she's
been saying this all my life. Avoid burnout by mixing up your
exercises so that you will stay interested in doing them.

If you have a website, you can use Google Trends for your website traffic to
increase as well. Office goers and people who are travelling often do not
get time to read news from the newspaper or watch it to get good information they could subscribe for
sports SMS alerts. You can only visit once a day and there is no guarantee that you will get anything from it but as I always say, free is free.

Or maybe you look at it from a monetary standpoint and decide that Guy Ritchie and Madonna divorce was worse because they were married so long and have children
and there is a lot of money involved. Talking of the walking dead, congratulations to Hugh Hefner, who is getting married at age
84 to 24-year-old beauty Crystal Harris. The singer will not be charged for
her public intoxication, but her boyfriend was charged a $30,000 bail fee
to release himself after he was tested positive for driving under the influence.

We know because they have done so for millions of other people.

Nothing is more motivating than seeing physical proof of
results.
