IMATS 2012




Hey everyone! I am a few months late but here are the fun pictures that I took at IMATS 2012 LA. Better late than never right? This is the second year that I attended the International Makeup Artist Trade Show. I was so blown away last year on how amazing the experience was and I knew that I would definitely start attending every year! This year I got there really early but the line was already wrapped around the whole convention center. When we got in it was not crowded at all. My sister and I hit up all of our favorite booths. We did some MAJOR damage this year but I don't have any regrets. I was in heaven. I loved seeing all of the different brands and meeting a variety of new people. The artistry was insane! I was among some of Hollywood's makeup elite. Ve Neill was having a class that I am still kicking myself from missing out on.

Afterwards, we attended another amazing event by Beautylish. It took place in a beautiful restaurant in Pasadena. I love talking to the entire Beautylish team and mingling with awesome Beauty Gurus! It was so much fun!!!

If you have not attended IMATS I highly recommend that you check it out. You get to mingle with fellow beauty lovers, explore the variety of brands, and take advantage of awesome discounts! We already have our hotel booked for IMATS 2013 which by the way has been moved to January instead of June. I can't wait to see you all there!



Lime Crime had a beautiful booth! I got a lot of gorgeous lipsticks and the new Aquataenia Palette.

I went a tad bit crazy at the Ardell booth. One of each please!

  6. I'm so sad that ZPalette and NYX won't be there this year. The exhibit list is much smaller than June IMATS =(
