This Saturday was the long anticipated IMATS Los Angeles. This was my second year attending the International Makeup Artist Trade Show, so while I knew what I was in for I still was not expecting the show to be this crazy. It took us an a little over an hour to get in since the Online Presale Ticket pick up wrapped all the way around the Civic Auditorium (they really need a better system for this). Once inside, the wait times for both MAC and Makeup Forever exceeded an hour each! I wasn't too disappointed, as I was looking forward to seeing a lot of the other makeup companies there. My first stop was Crown brushes, where i picked up 4 brushes, a powder brush, a small eyeshadow crease brush, a large fluff brush and an angled eyeliner brush- all for just under $20. I made my way to Kevyn Aucoin where I picked up his famous lash curler for just $10 (retails regularly at $20) and Dolline cheek blush for just $10 ($37 at regular price). I was also able to pick up a Sugarpill palette and loose pigment both at 30% off and Chantecaille lipgloss in Charm at 20% off the regular price. Lastly, I bought a Confidential tapered face brush at 10% off retail, which was already pretty cheap. I was able to get a lot of bulk disposable products that I use on clients as well (I wont bore you with pictures of those). Overall, it was a very successful IMATS experience this year. Did anyone else attend IMATS Los Angeles? Leave your thoughts in the comments.
