A weekend at the IMATS with fellow beauty bloggers!

Sunday was a day I had been looking forward to for a very long time. Not only was it going to be my first year at the Toronto IMATS (International Makeup Artist Trade Show) but it was also the first time I would be meeting some of my fellow makeup artists and beauty bloggers.

Running on little sleep for a busy weekend filled with family,friends and clients I headed to the Heritage Court building for the show. When I got there I was expecting it to be busy with line ups everywhere but to my surprise there were no line ups and the crowd was just starting to trickle in.

As we walked in we spotted Elessa Vovan from Pursebuzz.com and Koren also known as Encore the makeup guru on youtube. It was exciting seeing the 2 people that took youtube by storm and helped with teaching me many of the tricks of the trade.

Later we got the chance to meet them and I gotta say they were 2 of the most friendly people we met.


We also got to meet Derek Selby from CoverFX and who is also a local celeb appearing on the show Cityline.


Also got the chance to meet many of my fellow beauty bloggers and even some old classmates.


(L to R) Jenn, Iris (classmate),Encore,Me,Lelo (classmate),Michelle & Pursebuzz
Halifax was also there but she got cut out of the pic :(
I also met the fab Monica whom I didn't get a pic with unfortunately.





Michelle gets painted with some amazing Ben Nye pigments.

Also had the opportunity to see a former classmate working her magic in the student special FX competition. Caz Carter came in 2nd place and I couldn't be prouder! You rocked Caz.


Here's a look at some of the booths at the show. One of my fav being the Face Atelier booth where I spent the majority of my budget.


Had the pleasure of attending Encores seminar on brushes which was very informative I gotta say.



Look at the talent of this body painter... nuts!


Overall I had a blast meeting up with some amazing girls who happen to love makeup and the industry just as much as I do. I got a lot of key pieces for my kit and scooped up some great deals. Here is what I ended up with...


Were you at the Imats this year?
How did you like it?
What goodies did you pick up?

It was so great to meet you! You are even more gorgeous in person. ;-)

I look like I'm ready to punch someone in that one photo. LOL. Can I borrow the pic for my blog?

Look forward to our next get-together.

Yay beauty blogger meet up! I was also happy to see that it wasn't TOO crowded when I first walked in on Sat - definitely makes the event easier to see. I new to Face Atelier, hope to see some reviews =)

Wonderful how the guy totally cut me off in this picture. I guess I was meant to be the mysterious blogger, lol
