HELLO everyone and sorry for having been M.I.A. for so long but we're back and full on! And what better comeback than a IMATS haul?! IMATS stands for International Make-up Artist Trade Show, and they hold several events across the nation including London, Toronto, Sydney, Vancouver, New York, and last but not least Los Angeles! Angie and I, along with another friend (Lauren), attended the event held in LA this past saturday and it was simply uhhh-mazinggg!
This was the first time for all of us and let me tell you we were not let down. Not only were we in a room surrounded my nothing but make-up and other beauty essentials, but we also got the opportunity to meet a few youtube "gurus" as well as prestigious make-up artists such as Dany Sanz, founder of Make Up For Ever.

This event is perfect for discovering and trying out new brands that you've never even heard of, as well as the brands you know and love. This event is also perfect for those of you who like saving yourself a couple bucks because a lot of the vendors offer their products at discounted prices, for instance, M.A.C and Make Up For Ever had a 20% discount for the general public and a 40% discount for pro-card holders.

Last minute tip: get there early and have some sort of plan of the vendors you want to see and get to them as fast as you can because you might run into the problem I encountered, the stuff you wanted is already sold out =(
Happy Tuesday <3
