Unmissable Product & Technique Education at Passion to Profits 3.0, Monday Masterclass!

After showcasing all 10 brands over 7 different stands at Beauty Expo in August, Professional Beauty Solutions returned for more unmissable product and technique education with Passion to Profits 3.0, Monday Masterclass – a day designed to help salon owners grow their business and their skills.

Held at the International Convention Centre, Darling Harbour in Sydney on Monday 28th August, Passion to Profits 3.0 was a jam-packed day of education, with PBS flying in industry experts from two of the most innovative skincare and mineral makeup brands in the industry! Speakers included Philip Luque, Director of Artistry Global & Domestic Senior educator for Youngblood Minerals Cosmetics and Dawn Clifford, Senior Director of Education for Image Skincare.

The day kicked off with a Youngblood ‘Look & Learn’ Mineral Masterclass from Philip Luque where he demonstrated the “The Art of Youthful Makeup for Mature Skin”. In this class, Philip highlighted the fact that mature skin has characteristics and needs that other skin does not, therefore the products you use when working with mature skin need to be adjusted to ensure skin is left glowing, without emphasising fine lines. During the second half of the class, Philip showcased another beautiful makeup trend, “Draping – The New Contouring”. Similar to contouring, draping follows the natural bone structure to define, sculpt and create a flawless cheekbone. However, cream blush is used (in two different shades) to achieve a softer, more natural look without the standard brown tones used in classic contouring. 

Guests then joined Image Skincare’s Dawn Clifford for an afternoon of skin peel demonstrations and in-depth training on the newest ingredients and delivery systems which help take Image Skincare’s products and treatments to the next level. They were also treated to a sneak peek of IMAGE MD – a NEW range that incorporates cutting edge ingredients and delivery systems and utilises the latest advancements in skincare technology. Unlike other skincare programs, this collection can be used as a daily, ongoing skincare protocol and will be launching early 2018 in Australia.

PBS prides itself on not only providing leading brands, but also giving professionals the education and marketing support they need to truly succeed. With a gift bag from both events in hand, attendees walked away with a wealth of new knowledge they learned from these two leaders in the beauty and skincare industry.

Pure Fiji Launches NEW Coconut Lime Blossom Infusion at Beauty Expo Australia

Returning to Beauty Expo after 5 years, attendees came in droves to stock up on their favourite natural bath and body care products and experience the Australian launch of Pure Fiji’s latest signature scent - Coconut Lime Blossom!

Salon owners couldn’t get enough of the eagerly anticipated new infusion, with most of the Coconut Lime Blossom range selling out on the first day. The visiting Fijians were also a stand out for the crowd, performing incredible Signature Foot Rituals while singing some beautiful Fijian melodies throughout the weekend.

What’s in it?

Like all Pure Fiji products, the base of each range is the essential oils from four tropical nut oils including Dilo, Sikeci, Coconut, and Macadamia. In this range, these oils are then blended with fresh coconut milk, zesty lime, and lime blossom. Coconut has a myriad of skin enhancing benefits which help to soften, hydrate, soothe and protect the skin, while lime is rich in powerful antioxidants like Vitamin C to help boost collagen production. The incredible infusion of these antioxidants help particularly to tighten pores, remove dry skin cells and brighten skin tone. Skin is also hydrated with a refreshing blend of pure leaf hydrosols which offer skin protection and anti-ageing benefits.

With a complete body care range available including a Hydrating Body Lotion, Body Butter, Exotic Oil, Sugar Rub, Shower Gel, Bath Soak, Hand Crème, Body Mist, Spa Soap and Gift sets, as well as a new professional body treatment (launching late 2017), Pure Fiji’s Coconut Lime Blossom Signature Line is your clients ticket to hydrated, radiant and glowing skin.
