Last weekend, June 23-24, I attended the International Makeup Arts and Trade Show or IMATS held in Pasadena, California. This was an event I’ve been trying to get to for the last 3yrs. I was determined to get there this year no matter what. Boy am I ever glad that I attended.
I have soooo many wonderful things to say about my very first IMATS experience. It’s just not possible to sum it up in only one post. I’ll definitely be breaking it down into a series.
If you’ve never heard of IMATS, it’s basically a huge international convention that’s held in different cities. It’s a place for professionals as well as consumers to network, attend workshops/seminars, gain education with master make up classes, and of course shop for products at discounted prices.
There’s something there for all makeup lovers. From beauty to special effects, traditional to airbrush, you name it, it’s there. Academy Award and Emmy Award winners to YouTube Gurus all attend this phenomenal 2 day event. It is very well attended.

So stay tuned for Part 2…
