IMATS New York

Hello everyone, and thank god for the 70 degree weather that is making this Monday slightly more bearable. 

This past weekend I went to the International Make-up Artists Trade Show in New York! 
This was the first year that the show has ever taken place here, and it was the first time in the history of IMATS that the show has been completely sold out, probably because of the size of the venue. From what I've seen on the IMATS website, it seems that the New York show was one of the smallest ones, and the list of exhibitors was not quite as impressive as some of the ones in other cities. 

Nevertheless, the event itself was super fun and I'm glad I got to go. It was nice to see so many people - make-up artists, enthused consumers, and the occasional boyfriend or two - gathered there for the same reasons (aside from the boyfriends maybe?). The overwhelming amount of people meant that it was physically impossible for the sales people to pester you while you shopped, but it also meant that fifty other people were trying to make their way through to have a look at the same things you were. Yes, it got a little crazy at times, but all in all it was a great time, and I always love any excuse to spend a day in Soho. 

Here's some pictures from the event:

Winner!
And the outfit I wore for the day:
Outfit: Top - H&M; Blazer - Urban Outfitters; Skirt - Forever21; Tights - American Eagle; Flats - Steve Madden; Bag- Zara; Watch - Lucien Picard

I had an awesome day, and I really recommend you go to an IMATS show if you ever get the chance!
Of course I walked away with a few goodies that I am so excited about, which I will probably be blogging about in my next post.

Hope you're all doing well =)

  5. I have yet to make it out to one of these. You look gorgeous as usual. Can't wait to see what you got. MAC use to give pro cards during these events but I don't think they do anymore. I use to think that was the reason they had so many people. :)
