If there’s one thing getting me all hot under the collar…

Posted by Lipglossiping On December - 30 - 2009

…it’s the thought of the BIG Makeup Show coming to town in a month’s time!

IMATS stands for the International Make-Up Artist Trade Show and is produced by Make-Up Artist magazine.  It is held annually across 3 continents and 5 cities.

IMATS will be on at Alexandra Palace on Saturday 30th and Sunday 31st January 2010.

Some of the exhibitors I’m particularly excited to visit include:

Crown Brush, Eve Pearl, OCC, Embryolisse, Paris Berlin (love their liquid eyeliner), Yaby (dinky little shadows!) and PAM (who will be selling MUFE) oh no… now I’ve looked again, there’s more (like Fero Beauty for their Mavalas)… sigh… too many amazing exhibitors and a wishlist a mile long right?

There will also be some fab speakers on the day(s) including Terry Barber (M.A.C.’s director of make-up art for the U.K. and Europe) and Eve Pearl (an innovator of high-definition beauty and the Salmon Concealer®).

I’ve booked my hotel for Friday night, so I can get in when the doors open on Saturday morning – keen much?

Will you be going? You can purchase tickets from the Makeup Mag website here

    Oooh, I’ll definitely look forward to your post about it as I can only live vicariously through you. Happy New Year!

  2. Tanya says:

    I’m going too, the Mr is taking me for my b’day. But we have to buy our tickets when I’m there as they don’t accept my bf’s card :(

    I’m so excited and as you say have a wish list a mile long.

    I’m not going, I have to work, but was tempted to go. (although last year’s reports were a bit hit and miss- hope it is better this year!

    I’m sad that I can’t get to this one, but I’ve got plans for the 2011 show. Can’t wait for your haul and write up :)

  5. Gemma says:

    In accordance with sod’s law it’s on a weekend I can’t do. Really, really want to go – especially for the OCC stand – desperately want to try a Liptar! Have fun :)

  6. Rae says:

    Mmfh, so jealous! I wish IMATS hit my city — then again, even if it hit anywhere *close* to my city, I would go.

    (Hint: it totally doesn’t. But have fun,and I can’t wait to read your write up!)

  7. Maggie says:

    Im going to the LA one and the Vancouver show! I am really excited for both!

  8. I’ll be going on Sunday…sorry to miss you!

    See you there 😉

    IMATS Toronto was looooaaaaddddsss of fun, so I’m sure IMATS London will be a hit! Make sure to check out the seminars. In the one I saw, a senior MAC makeup artist did a gorgeous runway look on the model. I really picked up a few tips while watching it. :)

    Have fun!
