IMATS 2010 Experience (PIC HEAVY)

HA! I know, I'm super late. I just got around to editing and putting together video clips and photos from IMATS 2010 (international makeup artist trade show).I had a mad headache the whole time I was there because it was way too packed and I was pretty much all over the place walking around over and over again lol. But it was such a fun and amazing experience and I will definitely go again next year and I'll be more prepared.


WHAT: The International Make-Up Artist Trade Show is the make-up world’s biggest gathering. Thousands of make-up artists, vendors and enthusiasts discuss, display and collect the best the industry has to offer. Make-up pros from fashion and film (including Oscar, BAFTA and Saturn award winners) provide education and demonstrations at IMATS, and new products often debut there. IMATS also features a make-up museum and an Afterglow party, where trade-show guests can socialize. (source:
