Exciting news! If you are a makeup lover, IMATS will be an excellent show to attend to check out the latest and greatest products in the industry, learn makeup techniques from the pros, and mingle with fellow beauty lovers.  Below is more information on the show.  I highly encourage all of you to attend if you can or live in the LA area.  I will be attending the show on Sunday to provide complete coverage with images and possibly some interviews.  Therefore, I will most likely not be able to haul or purchase the products given the time constraints. Let me know if there are any brands you'd like to see or know more about.  The list of exhibitors at the LA show is impressive!  See you all there.


      WHAT: The International Make-Up Artist Trade Show (IMATS) spotlights both film and fashion make-up and features panels, speakers, classes and demos, sample and shopping opportunities, fashion shows, body painting, an Alice in Wonderland competition, Special Effects Make Up Museum and a Couture Bridal Fashion Show.
      WHO: Make-up artists who created the fantastical world of characters for Tim Burton’s film Alice in Wonderland will share their on-set experiences live. Celebrity make-up artists working in film, fashion, TV, theater and print will be teaching classes and demonstrating top techniques and styles.
      Some of the most prestigious brands in the make-up world - Bobbi Brown, M.A.C., Urban Decay, OCC and Make Up For Ever - will unveil new products and tools and offer discounts on old favorites.
      Master Classes—hands-on workshops—led by award-winning makeup artists Vargas, Rae Morris, Kevin-James Bennett and Eve Pearl, will be held on Friday for a separate fee.  
      WHEN:  Friday, June 25, 9 am-6pm (Master Classes only)
