Hello World. Today I am excited to share my experiences at the Beauty Swop or Sale Beauty Expo with you. The Expo took place at the Protea Fire & Ice Hotel in Cape Town last weekend. This was the second Expo hosted in Cape Town and it’s always something I look forward to on the beauty calendar.
As always the goody bag did not disappoint. There are a few items that are not pictured which includes whitening strips for teeth, vouchers, perfume and press on nails.
After visiting a few vendors, we rushed off to the Intermediate make up master class hosted by Kirsty Cochuis the owner of Smudge Make-up & Hair Academy. This was one of the highlights for me as I picked up a few tips like not splurging money on expensive setting powders & using baby powder. Kirsty will also be hosting classes at the Johannesburg chapter of the Expo so keep an eye out Jozi babes.
After the make up masterclass we were just in time to see the amateur competition winner announced. I so much wanted to enter but as always I had left everything to late & I couldn’t find the time to create a makeup look before the deadline. The winner Charli X Boi took his inspiration from the cubism and surrealism influence in Paris as the theme was Moulin Rouge.
After the competition we browsed some more and picked up some goodies from Pink Cosmetics who also launched their make up range (I received some samples with my purchase) at the expo , Ofra and Curl Chemistry.
As they say “God is in the details” and the Beauty Swop or Sale team took care of all the details. The wifi code was advertised everywhere, the venue was an amazing upgrade from last year, the registration table was quick, efficient & professional and best of all I had access to all the best vendors in the same room running amazing specials without worrying about courier costs. These little details are the difference between an amazing event and an event that’s “just okurrrrr”.
Thank you for reading. Did you attend the Beauty Swop or Sale Expo? What were your thoughts?
