I went to IMATS this past weekend in Pasadena, CA. IMATS stands for International Makeup Artist Trade Show for those who may not know. It's a convention for mainly makeup artists or makeup enthusiasts that can never get enough of makeup like me :). You tend to find new products from different new companies and even already known cosmetic companies like M.A.C. Pro , OCC and etc. It's mainly sponsered by Royal and Langnickel a well known makeup brushes brand and you get a pretty good discount at every booth but everybody is different. You can also take classes with well known artists, watch keynote speakers and other things. I may or may have not mentioned it to you guys don't remember but I'm here to share with you guys my experience and some pictures I took. It was a three day convention Friday for pro's , Saturday and Sunday for the public and I attended on Saturday the 19th I had bought my ticket for $40. You can attend 3 days or two or just one day like me .To be honest I really didn't take a lot of pictures instead I was really interested in shopping :). Even though I was really bummed because the things I had wanted to buy were sold out : /. I had a good time though looking at great makeup artists as well as their work. I also saw a lot of beauty guru's from you tube like Nicole Guerriero (nguerriero19), missglamorazzi, amarixe, Sophia( fashionista804) and a lot more I forgot :) it was great seeing them though I didn't take pictures with any. I was just so focused on shopping and looking around :). I did buy a lot of things which I will show in part 2 to not make this post so long. Now here are the pictures I took they are not the best but I tried :).
Tons of brushes here.
More pictures ahead......
I was bummed at this booth I really wanted the new velvetines matte lip glosses but they sold in the color I wanted .
Doe Deere she looked like a doll. She is gorgeous in person!
M.A.C. Pro big line at their booth. Didn't buy anything because they only accept ATM transactions and I only had cash with me : /.
Sugarill booth they had a big line too. I fell in love with their sugarpill pro palette a combination of all three of there quad palettes in one. Didn't buy anything from here but that pro palette is in my wishlist now :). (jazziebabycakes on the right by the way.)
This creature right here scared the crap out of me when I was in line at a booth pock me with his claws and then posed for me lol.
