I visited the Beauty Salon Dimensions, a trade show for those in the beauty and cosmetics industry a few weeks back. The show was held in Utrecht, a charming part of the Netherlands known for the restaurants that line the edges of the city's main canal.
The show itself saw an enormous number of visitors and I was bowled over by the amount of exhibitors there. I saw heavy traffic especially in Make-Up Studio and Opi's show areas. All exhibitors at the show offered some sort of discounts and most offered products at almost bulk purchase prices. I should have known that I would come back with my hands full and should have brought my luggage with me to hold all the goodies I purchased.
The Make-Up Studio is a line of makeup designed for professional makeup artists by a small group of makeup artists. Their products are priced very competitvely and sold at almost half the price as MAC. Their wide variety of eye, lip and face colors as well as the huge line of brushes allow professionals to let loose and get creative with colors. The eye shadows come in vivid color choices and in very fine, blendable textures. They also come in a variety of textures such as matte, lumiere, frost, shiny, aqua, and glimmer.
If I had to mention all the products they offer to fill our makeup and skincare kits, I would run out of breath. So instead, here are pictures to demonstrate what I purchased.
