IMATS show

Here is more about makeup shopping (OK so it is in the the future in Jan 2011, which is not so far away now) dates can be seen on the IMATS site. This is a great 2 day show in London, for makeup artists whether they are new or seasoned. There are various talks by top makeup artists (TV, film, celebrity etc) in the industry and lots of stalls by makeup companies like MAC, Make up Forever to name a few, Also, you will find big makeup schools like Greasepaint etc too. The show is open to anyone as long as you can buy a ticket you can get in. If you are a student, bring a letter to get a discount on the ticket.

If you go to the IMATS site, you will see a link to fill a form out to make a Pro makeup artist discount card which entitles you to several discounts within IMATS especially on the magazine called Makeup Artist.

I look forward to the show every year as I get to meet some amazing people, get to hear attend some amazing talks / demos, make a few discount cards with certain makeup brands, check out new products and so much more.

Depending on how tired I am, I might even attend the second day this year.

Looking forward to buying an air brush kit so I can do some creative work.......(Temptu, Dinair, IWATA here I come)
