What beauty brands just don’t catch your eye? Any reason?
IMATS – International Make Up Artist Trade Show 2009 in Pasadena, CA
Hey everyone! I spent the day at this year’s IMATS down in Pasadena, CA! I flew down in the early morning, and the lovely Pursebuzz picked me up on her way to IMATS. IMATS is basically a convention for makeup artists, and this year’s Pasadena show was sponsored by Make-up Artist Magazine. Temptalia definitely has to thank Make-up Artist Magazine for inviting us down to check out the show. I hung out a ton with Pursebuzz and her cousin Ames, as well as Koren (of EnKore Makeup).
I also met a ton of YOU while attending and perusing the show! It is such an honor to meet all of you, and it is just so amazing to see your support! I got to meet several other YouTube-famous ladies & gents like Leesha, Josh, Suzy, Nessa, Elle, Blair (my spelling may be off!), and more. Almost started to feel like a blogger convention! It made be sad to have to fly back home in the afternoon, but next year, I will try to plan better
IMATS is really a great opportunity for makeup artists in particular, but the general public is allowed in and can peruse through all of the different vendors. There are a lot of theatrical brands and products available, as well as well-known brands like Bobbi Brown, Chantecaille, MAC, and Make Up For Ever. They also offer classes taught by various professionals and brands (like Koren’s class!), too! If you’re in the southern California area, you should definitely look into going and buying tickets at the door. They open at 10am and close at 5pm tomorrow!
P.S. – If we took a picture together, I’d love to see it and/or post it on the blog. You can send me a copy (let me know if I can post it!) to [email protected]!
Some pictures… more to come!
