I remember first hearing about the International Makeup Artist Trade Show from my girl Vanessa at Nessasary Makeup. And so started my obsession with wanting to attend every make-up show I could get to.
Unfortunately I can’t get to IMATS this time around *tears* but you can!!
From the IMATS Website:
“Known simply as “The Show” to the make-up world, the International Make-Up Artist Trade Show (IMATS) is the only show of its kind in the world. Thousands of make-up artists, vendors, manufacturers and enthusiasts convene for the make- up world’s biggest gathering. If you’ve ever wanted to learn the techniques or experiment with the products, or if you just have an interest in the art of make-up, then the Pasadena Convention Center (300 East Green Street) is where you need to be.
The show is open to the public. No make-up artist credentials are required to get you in the door. Tickets are non-refundable and any billing discrepancies must be presented within 30 days of the transaction.”
You can get ticket information here. My suggestion? If you are wanting to just check out the exhibitors, I would go for the $15 tickets. Buuuut, if you are a serious make-up artist, editor and lover, I would definitely get the $65 tickets. They not only get you on admission to the exhibitor floor but to classes and to see keynote speakers as well. That’s the route I would take if if…
….if I were going. *more tears*
Wanna take me?
