IECSC-International Esthetics, Cosmetics & Spa Conferences

Hello dear makeup friends,

This past week we attended the International Esthetics, Cosmetics & Spa Conferences in Fort Lauderdale. The IECSC is considered one of the premier Spa and Makeup events offered for licensed Estheticians, Makeup Artists, Spa Professionals, Skin care specialists, and Plastic Surgeons. 

We took advantage of the Makeup classes being offered and made sure to attend most of them. As you know, I like to stay on top of the newest techniques and information out there. You can never know too much! 

This event is not open to the public, so we figured we would take pictures to show all of you what goes on when industry professionals get together to network and to learn the newest techniques and trends. Scroll down for a picture diary of the highlights and also slideshows at the end of the post.

Here we are when we had just arrived, eager to learn! 

Our favorite classes:
Our favorite Class: Aqua Color. We learned the techniques on how to use the Kryolan Aqua Colors, specifically for TV and Fashion Shows.
Here is the model with half of her face completed. Gorgeous colors!
We wasted no time chatting up the fabulous teacher, the famous Dominic Cruz, head makeup artist for Kryolan Professional and lets not forget the head makeup artist for the Mrs. Universe pageant. He is so humble and sweet and even took the time to help me pick out specific Kryolan products for my ever evolving Makeup Kit. Thanks Dominic :) 
The models for another one of our favorite classes we enjoyed: Ebony and Ivory 
This class had great techniques on how to apply flawless HD makeup on all skin tones.
Here is Eleni with the teacher for the "ebony" portion of the class: Buntricia Bastian, International Celeb Makeup Artist  and Master Educator for all Sandal's and Beaches Resorts.
We loved this drama- filled class about HD makeup for Mature Skin.
The instructor was Gabriel Noda, the President of Gabriel Productions.
Check out his awesome website Here!

Here are some pictures of our Haul. We tried really hard not to over spend, but I don't think we succeeded :) What do you think? ;)

Lots of Eve Pearl and NAKED! They had and awesome Pro Discount!
And of course a lot of Kryolan, because that brand is so hard to find! 
And our favorite purchase of the day:
The amazing Clarisonic Pro. Can't wait to get it in the mail and review it for all of you.

 Check out the slideshow for more pictures of the event. The truth is that we barely took pictures of the actual trade floor, because we were so busy trying all the awesome products and making our purchases. You can click here to get more information about the show and the over 200 exhibitors.

If you want to take a look at my favorite conference exclusively about Makeup, take a look at this Slideshow from when I attended last year's The Artist Summit in Miami. This was an intense 3 day event offering lots of seminars and workshops taught by famous Makeup Artists like Kevin James Bennet, James Vincent, Eve Pearl, Koren Zander, Danielle Fonseca and many more.

I hope you all enjoyed the long post. We will be doing reviews for some our favorite purchases, so make sure to check back in for that.
