We just spent the past couple days on the red carpet, the signature red carpet of the Premiere Orlando Beauty Show that is! Known for being THE place to find the latest trends and hottest products, Premiere Orlando is the country's largest beauty expo where leading brands and newbies alike showcase their latest and greatest for two action-packed, beauty-filled days.
Beauty shows are a whole other universe unto themselves where one minute you're having a man on stilts slather a gold-flecked night creme on your wrist and the next you find yourself in the middle of a blowdryer-themed dance party while watching stylists on stage put the finishing touches on an avant gard style that extends four feet into the air. Not to mention there's curls galore, amazing new products and expert stylists at our disposal to answer all of our burning beauty questions. It's truly the stuff a beauty junkie's dreams are made of!
Here are some of the pictures from this event so you can get the scoop on some of our finds from this year's show!
