As the show makes it's move to Olympia's West Hall, it's taking a great selection of alternative beauty along with it, past show's have already highlighted alt beauty bag favourites like Stargazer and Manic Panic, but this year's there's many more alternative cosmetic companies to look out for attending the show.


Cult vintage favourite, Besame Cosmetics, have already been a (not so) well kept secret for the perfect pin up red lipstick and blushing rouge's. Making a grand appearance at February's show, Besame's collection of cosmetics are inspired by classic Hollywood glamour. With a palette of sultry reds, and luscious pinks, they're certainly one to try for a jaw droppingly gorgeous range of lipsticks and cosmetics.


Flying the flag for home grown cosmetics, Le Keux Cosmetics make a return to LondonEdge with their wonderful selection of products. Another to visit for classic make up products, with lip paints inspired by the glamour of the '40's and '50's, and with cheeky names like "Whistle bait" and "Cadillac black" you'll certainly be tempted!

If it's a pop of vibrant colour that you prefer, then you certainly won't be disappointed by the selection of cosmetics on show from Stargazer. With a vibrant, and colourful selection of products available, from bright neons to colourful glitters and pretty pastels, if you can think of it, chances are that they've created it amongst their range of eyeshadows, dusts, and nail paints.


Classic gothic make up won't be left out either, with Manic Panic's staple collection of darkly gothic cosmetics that have been causing quite a stir amongst alt retailers, besides a purple lipgloss always look better when it's got a giant black cross adorning the lid! Always one to visit for more darkly, and alternative shades for your make up bag.
