Event: Beauty Expo Australia 2015, Sydney Exhibition Centre

A few weeks ago, I attended the yearly Beauty Expo Australia held at Sydney Exhibition Centre. Having missed out on attending the previous years due to other commitments, I was super excited to finally get this opportunity as it’s Australia’s largest spa and beauty event. I found that the Beauty Expo was a great experience. There were masterclasses and educational seminars held throughout the day for those wanting to grab some great tips. As for me, I decided to browse through all the exhibitors that were there; one word – wow! I was blown away by the number of new products I was introduced to! They had products ranging from beauty products to cosmeceuticals to beauty tools manufacturers to furniture for your salon. At the end of the day, I walked away with a modest haul – talk about self control!

Being Australia’s largest spa and beauty event, it is clear the event organisers knew what they were doing. The layout was easy to guide and it was spacious so you’re not constantly bumping into the other 7,000 attendees! Prices at Beauty Expo were wholesale prices and I really had to stop myself from buying ALL THE THINGS!

I picked up some OPI polishes – mostly nudes as I definitely have way too many brights in my collection which just aren’t work appropriate enough; some lashes from Model Rock and replenished my brush collection with some buys from Crown Brushes. Their prices are reasonable and the quality is amazing. Also purchased a mauve-nude lipstick from Montana Bliss, a relatively new brand who are coming out with matte lip glosses soon!; and a Mind to Body Facial Treatment Oil – essentially a soy candle which you light up during treatment and then using the melted candle, it becomes a facial oil! It’s formulated to reach about 2 degrees above your body temperature so there’s no risk of burning your skin. So excited to use this.

I think those in the beauty industry should definitely attend at least once as the knowledge you gain from it is priceless. Also, everything that you could ever need for your salon is available in the one place – efficiency, tick!
