Hi everyone! I'm going to have a few different photoblog posts of my recent trip to NYC, and I decided to start with one of IMATS (International Makeup Artist Trade Show), the event we attended while in the city.
I would like to start by saying that this was one of the most memorable days of my entire life. I couldn't believe how many people came up to say hi to me, and how nice everyone was! It is so wonderful to finally be able to put faces to names and meet people in person, and everyone made me feel so welcome at the show. I had an amazing time meeting all of you... you truly made my first IMATS unforgettable.
If you aren't familiar with IMATS, it is a makeup artist convention where cosmetics companies will come and showcase their products. You typically see brands such as Mehron, OCC, Make Up For Ever, MAC, Temptu, and more! At this particular show, the most popular brands that appeared were Inglot, OCC, Mehron, Temptu, and Stila. The perk of attending the show for consumers is that you can purchase these companies' products at artist prices... usually anywhere up to 50% off! I was lucky enough to get 40% off of all Stila products... a pretty huge savings!
I put a video up on my beauty channel documenting some of the event, if you would like to hear more about it!
