This was the second year of IMATS NYC and they moved to a brand new location, with a huge amount of space and many more vendors and booths than last year.
Finally my last post on The Makeup Show! I’ve waited for this all year and it did not disappoint! The biggest show ever, now occupied 2 floors of the Metropolitan Pavilion! I was a little overwhelmed. More vendors than before and the main theme of the event centred around education of the artist on new techniques, product lines, marketing yourself etc. One of the best things were the PRO Pods, which allowed experts to connect one-on-one artists to exchange ideas.
I spent the day attending as many workshops that I could and I also did a little bit of shopping (of course!!!). Met some new people, caught up with some old friends and had an amazing time!!!
Enough talk! Here are the pictures!!! And again, if we took pictures together, tag me or let me know!!!
NARS Cosmetics made their TMS debut this year and it was one of the first booths that I visited.
That’s pretty much what I said when I heard that the International Makeup Artist Tradeshow (IMATS) was finally coming to NYC in 2011. In L.A. and Toronto, it is usually a must-go event and I was excited! I love going to these shows for a number of reasons,
So I attended last Sunday, which ended up being a great idea as I heard that it was just chaos on Saturday. I got to SoHo early so I was able to browse the booths with ease. Even though the show was hosted on multiple levels, there were less vendors than I expected. There were many of the most popular brands that were not there like M.A.C. and Make Up For Ever. I think that the organizers played it conservatively and limited the number of attendees and vendors.
I had a short shopping list and as soon as I get there, I headed to those specific booths. Here’s my mini haul!
