NEW YORK — Extracts, the trade show for aromatherapy, fragrance and personal care, turned out another batch of ambitious beauty suppliers seeking retail distribution at this spring’s show, held March 28-31. More than 250 exhibitors aimed to lure boutique and department store buyers to their elaborately decorated and fragrant booths. And many succeeded, as offerings for brides-to-be, teens, sex kittens and natural-product lovers emerged as show hits.

For low-maintenance brides, or rather, the 70 percent of women who apply their own makeup on the big day, there’s now BridalBabe, cosmetic kits that make choosing the right beauty products a no-brainer. Makeup artist Janice Kinigopoulos, who also works on the set of the HBO drama, "The Wire," created BridalBabe for all the girls desperate to look like a magazine cover model without paying a large makeup artist fee. The kits, which are packaged in bridal-like white net pouches, are filled with lip gloss, foundation, blush and eye shadow, and include application directions. Kinigopoulos tailored kits for four different types of brides: the glamorous, the natural, the princess and the classic bride. BridalBabe pouches are estimated to retail for $40.
