Right when you walked in the room was abuzz with laughter, business and beauty. I stopped by the CAILYN Cosmetics booth to learn about their amazing new eyeliner and brow defining products. I was totally obsessed with not only the great packaging but the innovative application of their products.

I also loved chatting with the CEO of DMK skin care, founded by Danne Montegue-King, and learning some tips and tricks for keeping my skin looking young‚Ķ after all, a girl doesn’t stay 25 forever ūüėȬ†DMK has created one of the world‚Äôs most advanced skin care systems and is the only company in the world to utilise the effects of transfer messenger enzymes. I graciously accepted a selection of their signature products and I can’t wait to invite my girlfriends, and guy friends, over for a facial party!

 My other favorite discoveries were two new brands dedicated to keeping our skin like it was when we first appeared into this crazy world, DNAEGF Renewal by Dr. Ronald L. Moy, whose 5-piece Renewal Collection encourages the skin to continue its natural regeneration process by supplementing it with EGF and DNA Repair Enzyems, and STEMOLOGY, which provides all natural, intelligently organic skincare formulations through the emerging science of Stem Cells.

I also loved the Brilliant Mineral Highlighter from Mirabella, and I’m completely blushing because of the new travel brush kit, perfect for gifts and for holiday getaways. Be sure to stock up on them for your friends, fam and all the lovely ladies in your life.

Even the best beauty gurus might not ne aware of just how easy it is to go “green” and be ready for red carpets 24/7, but thanks to¬†Healthilocks, green hair is now trending!

IT Hair Care from Key Brands International has me super stoked about their 35 year legacy of fabulous products from hair sprays, mouses, hair gels, serums and leave-in treatments that means there’s no excuse to not love your locks, even if you’re a beauty on a budget!

And who says beautylicious babes can’t be tech nerds too?¬†Styli-Style debuted some super cool lip and eye products, their liquid liner and self-sharpening eye liner wowed me in more ways than one.

And this one’s for the guys. Perhaps one of my favorite discoveries as of yet, EVOLUTIONMAN, designed by celebrity groomer Marco Berardini, EVOLUTIONMAN was at first used solely behind-the-scenes during photo shoots, red carpet events and TV shows. Now every man can polish his look with these cutting edge formulations that provide maximum results with minimal efforts. YES, I will now be stealing my boyfriends makeup and skin care products too, since i already steal his razors, I guess it’s a healthy next step!
