Other companies were also demonstrating on people in the crowds. Temptu Pro, Cinema Secrets/SKS Novelty Co., Eve Pearl, Eye Kandy Cosmetics, Lit Cosmetics, and a few of the Beauty Schools were also giving demonstrations.
The most popular and hot trends that we noticed at the show were glitter and tools! There was definitely a trend with companies and their glitter and glam lines. Eye Kandy Cosmetics, Lit Cosmetics, LA Splash, Pari Beauty, Naked Cosmetics, and NYX Cosmetics had huge lines with people wanting to buy their glitter products. Everywhere we looked there were sparkling happy faces!

The other big trend was definitely the tools of the trade. Royal & Langnickel, Crown Brush, Bdellium Tools and of course every company that sells these tools were extremely popular.
Also spoke with the fine people from GrandeLash M.D., Alicia Grande and Harry Jefferson! Just look at their lashes! They are all natural in these pics which is just amazing! There are other lash serums out there but GrandeLash M.D. boasts to not only grow your lashes longer and thicker but also darker. Check out these pics and this little video they were kind enough to do for us!
Another trend that was really BIG was theatre makeup and especially neon/glow in the dark/black light makeup! Equally as big a trend were vendors that had products to set makeup like Model in a Bottle and FACE atelier. We spoke with FACE atelier on Day 2. Here is a video from Jill Stephens of Model in a Bottle explaining her products.
We spoke with Phil Cox from KWMagic representing Wolfe Face Art & FX Canada and they had a lot of Neon and Glow n’ the Dark Make up:
