“My kind of town Chicago is” ~ Once again, America’s Beauty Show was fantastic !

Sunday, March 13th, was a perfect day to head downtown to McCormick Place in Chicago ! As a national makeup artist, and former national trainer for an international skin care company, there is nothing more exciting than an event like America’s Beauty Show. (This year’s show was March 12th-14th.)

I must truly say, it was even more fun covering the show as a beauty correspondent for !

Over hundreds of vendors and manufacturers were on the ABS exhibit floor presenting the latest in beauty, makeup, skin, nail, hair products, and tools of the trade, providing an opportunity to learn, play, try, and purchase product while right in the midst of live presentations that provided non-stop energetic education, of “what’s happening” in the world of beauty!

Quoting Cosmetologists Chicago President Frank Gironda of Frank GIronda Salon and Spa, Naperville, IL , “… For 86 years, America’s Beauty Show has been THE Midwest Beauty Show and we fully intend to continue the tradition for many many years.

L’Oreal Professional, P&G Salon Professional, and John Paul Mitchell Systems, the three largest companies in the professional beauty industry, chose America’s Beauty Show for their exhibit appearance in the Midwest this year. TIGI, Vidal Sassoon, and Tony & Guy Academy, just to name a few, were also some of the big name companies exclusively at ABS.

Speaking of Vidal Sassoon, he made a special appearance at the “Red Carpet Premiere” of the highly rated documentary -VIDAL SASSOON THE MOVIE at ABS!

Much gratitude to Lisa Cocuzza for posting pictures as I sent them “live” from the show so our viewers could be right there with me having a “GLAM” time !!

I watched a number of the Instantly Ageless Facelift in a Bottle demonstrations throughout the day, and just before I left I decided to get some and try it out!

I also enjoyed Fake Bake! It’s is the most
natural tan, and there is no streaking. Andi, (on the picture)
put some on my face, and I bought the whole kit. It’s a great
look I know you’ll just love ! They have some new glosses,
too that are so fab with your new tan!!

I look forward to trying these new “beauty finds”, and giving you a full report in future blogs.

I had to try the Twist-n-Roll tweezers as soon as I got home. It’s the most convenient way to remove facial hair, right from the root, on your upper lip, chin, cheeks, and forehead that I have used. It doesn’t cause stubble or thicker hair out growth, and you don’t have to worry about breakouts or redness. Even more convenient, you can use Twist-n-Roll tweezers over makeup… without a mirror!!

Your skin feels and looks so smooth when it’s free from unwanted hair. Go to this link and see how to use this remarkable little hair removing tool at: It can be ordered on the site as well.

Have a “GLAM” day !!
