I went to the International Make-up Artist Trade Show (IMATS) this past Sunday and wow…sooooo amazing! My eyes were big and wide…even the lady who took my ticket said to me….”wow! you’re excited…” New lines, tried and true lines and lines I have never seen before. I connected with old peeps, colleagues, and friends….It was a makeup extravaganza!!
So here’s a little back story…I had planned to go on Saturday and perhaps Sunday as well. I got there bright and early Saturday (and generally, I don’t do early). Apparently I wasn’t a big believer in the advance ticket sales, but ummm….I got there…and you guessed it…SOLD OUT!!! Boo…tear. When all that was done, I bought my ticket for Sunday. But alas, Sunday was a wee bit more complicated in the AM…
Oooh La La…Sunday morning started at 8AM at the fabulous Langhem Hotel in Pasadena where I was working a Debutante Fashion Show fiesta! Good times, great girls and fab makeup!
The very second I was done; I ran to my car with my gi-normous kit and dashed to IMATS!!! And yes….it was INCREDIBLE!
So enough back story…As soon as I walked in the door, it was mayhem. I couldn’t focus…my ADD was on fire. There was makeup in every flavor…special effects, beauty, airbrush…there were products, supplies, master classes, AND a bar….seriously, the icing on the cake!
So what did I buy you ask….take a quick lil look-see….
- Lip Tar by Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics…a few of them
- Anastasia Brow Set
- Magic in a Bottle
- And some new foundations by Makeup Designory
Can’t wait to try and make it all fit in my kit…lol!
Take a look at what I got to see! So much amazing talent in one place! I’m pumped! I’m jazzed! And can’t wait to try my new stuff!
