I was seething over not being able to attend the International Makeup Artist Trade Show (IMATS) in Los Angeles last year. My fury turned into joy a few weeks ago when I learned that IMATS was coming to New York this Spring. I have attended The Makeup Show in NYC for the past two years and if the floor plan is any indication, IMATS is going to be even bigger and badder! According to the IMATS website, the Los Angeles show had over 70 exhibitors last year and hopefully the New York market has the same attraction. Whether you are a new or established makeup artist or a beauty junkie (the event is open to the general public except for 2 hours on Sunday), the event will give you a chance to check out some of your favorite brands and explore others that are not easily accessible–all under one roof. Stila, Temptu and Inglot have already signed up and I’ll keep checking in on the site as the event gets closer for additional exhibitors. You can also pick up some great tips and advice at presentations from some of the beauty industry’s leading experts. There is still no word on who will be speaking at the show on the site but I will keep you posted.
