a colourful time at IMATS Toronto

This past weekend was a colourful weekend at the IMATS in Toronto. Although the show was not as big as I expected, it also made for a more "intimate" affair! Much easier to find fellow bloggers and YouTube guru's. It also allowed us bloggers to get to know eachother and makeup reps a little bit better as there were not huge crowds at the displays. Playtime was also fun! Yes, that's what I call playing with makeup:) And as you can see from my previous post I also came home with just a few things...I guess this mean no buying makeup for a little while. Anyhow, I don't think I need to go into too much detail about the event. Basically, a makeup trade show is to play with makeup, learn a few new tricks, network, meet new friends, and leave with your wallet a bit lighter. I believe my pictures tell a better story so shall we have a look at the colourful event!
Norma Hill-Patton (make-up dept. head for The Twilight Saga: New Moon) & a makeup-artist competing in a Sc-Fci competition (she came in 2nd place)
CoverFx with Derick & Wanda (super sweet) You must get their primer (I did a review awhile back, click here!) Eve Pearl Cosmetics (was one of the brands I really wanted to try because not widely available. I didn't get everything on my list though! They were sold out of the Salmon Concealers in the singles)FACE atelier (wow! lovely items & why didn't I buy the foundation? Duh, damn budget) I also have to thank Debbie (President & CEO of FACE atelier) for giving me the push to join twitter:) Follow me!
