Happy Sunday, lovely readers. Fresh off the tails of visit to The Makeup Show LA, it’s time for the weekly edition of
Bits, Bobs And Beauty News.
That’s the makeup kit of Maurice Stein, the founder of Cinema Secrets who recently passed away. It was fascinating to see this vintage kit and makeup up close and personal! Maurice is behind so much makeup we’ve seen on screens, including Sophia’s wrinkles on the Golden Girls. Look at those old school false lashes, pancake makeup!
As always I had a brilliant time at The Makeup Show and I’m so glad I had the opportunity to attend. It takes a bit of scheduling coordination to pull it off, and it’s always worth while (and then some!). I’ll have a recap post coming up later on and I have quite a few tidbits of wisdom and information to share with you. I was able to sit in a few seminars, watch many makeup demonstrations, learn about some new (to me) brands/products and joyfully encountered some friends. I’ve created a highlight of the show on my Instagram profile if you’d like to take a peek.
One thing that was a total surprise to me is that makeup artist staple skincare product Embryolisse will no longer be sold in the USA! I’m going to to a bit of research to find out exactly why, but there are brands that are stepping up to replace it.
In other skincare news, I watched in sheer fascination as legendary makeup artist Pati Dubroff used a facial massage tool to invigorate her model’s skin. It was inspiring and I’ve decided it’s time for me to look into lymphatic facial massages that I can do at home. I found a couple of interesting videos and will be giving them a try.
Now, onto the best of Painted Ladies from the past week.
Pixi Beauty Glow Tonic and Pixi Beauty Rose Tonic are skincare must tries.
I do like the Juno And Co Microfiber Velvet Sponge better than it’s pricier competition.
How To Get The Most Out Of Beauty Trade Shows – I didn’t follow my own advice and should have hydrated more!
Iconic Avon Lipstick is cute, but the product itself is lacking.
Iconic Avon Beauty Palette and Avon True Color Mistletoe Kisses are two Holiday 2018 offerings from Avon.
Here’s to a blessed, beauty-full and abundant week ahead! And to any Veterans, thank you for your service on this Veterans Day!
