The 48th show of make-up, skincare, and spa products, Congrès International d’Esthetique & Spa was held from April 7-9, 2018 in Paris, France at the Porte de Versailles Convention Centre. Despite a transportation strike on some of the trains, crowds came to the show.

With approximately 28,000 attendees and 250 exhibitors, it was a very interesting show. New products were presented that help women become more beautiful and fit including some for weight reduction.

Salon owners and also students were very interested to learn new ideas and see the new colors.

Not only were products presented and sold but there were also interesting presentations on how to grow businesses in these fields such as beauty salons and seminars.  Participants came to see the new products and buy their favorite products that they have been using and to learn about new products including permanent make up and spa products and also learn about messages.

I was surprised to see Myriam Raoux from Art Deco there. I met her a few years ago when they exhibited at a show that is no longer taking place.  Art Deco is a professional make up line.

The presentations of body painting were very enjoyable and gave make up artists the opportunities to show off their talents.

Makeup Forever, a professional makeup company, had a very large stand with their professional consultants advising buyers. They had a good turnout for the event.  As in previous years,  they had an amazing body painting competition. 

This show was very enjoyable and educational.

  1. Strange modern look at the beauty…. Avatars. Aggressive, emancipated outlook. Disgusting… Women are turned into experiment hamsters by fashion corporations. Sorry, but i’m retro in this question.
    P.s. God save Russia, please, from such “fashion”!

    • JohnZ, this fashion is for podium. It’s a business, based on woman’s desire to be beautiful and consumer the fashion goods. Russian (but not only) women are really beatiful and very femine. If it is ok for USA lady to go outside in casual clothes or even the sleeping suit (pijama?), Russian lady will always go out to the shop like on a date. It is moveton for ’em to look not perfect. It is Russian style.
      As for overweight and fat people – since youth it becomes a kind of tragedy. Hard to find a man. We don’t like fat people. And we prefer good hand-made, natural food, but not the fast-food. Well, the new generation will show what they want to be.
