Cybelesays Report on The Makeup Show
So The Makeup Show is in Los Angeles today and tomorrow. This is where those who work in makeup gather to hear about new techniques, products and developments in the industry as a whole. There were seminar’s-a-plenty like Spring Look Trends and Bridal to Airbrush makeup and FX.
And there were quite a few makeup celebrities in attendance. From Billy B to Scott Barnes to, who I got quite excited to see, Ms. Ongina from RuPaul’s Drag Race. She looked fierce!
Ok, on with the event. This was the first year I went and overall, I thought it was good. For what we feature on Cybelesays.com, I went in search of products that are coming out and lines to highlight. Unlike this year’s ISSE show, I didn’t see a whole lot of new products being rolled out but there were some.
Check out the highlights below!

- YOUNGBLOOD's new Mineral Primer (face primer made of minerals? Gotta try this one!)
- The many sets of MAKE UP FOR EVER's false eyelashes I bought (finally have the application down. More on this in a feature later this week.
- LUMINESS AIR
So let's talk about Luminess Air! This is the first full range of color cosmetics (eye shadows, foundation, blush, bronzer) designed to be airbrushed on at home. Could this be the new trend? I have used and liked the Era Everyday Foundation from Classifield Cosmetics when it came out a few years ago so I’m familiar with the concept. I watched Luminess Air’s Marc Harvey transform show attendee, Griselda, from everyday lovely to luminous mamacita! Look at the way her skin glows!
I really liked the effect on her eyes. So natural but chic.
Did I end up trying it? Yes, but I forgot to take a before picture so thank you Griselda for letting us shoot a before and after pic!
