Next weekend marks a pretty big date in the calendars of makeup artists and beauty lovers alike. The International Makeup Artist Trade Show is making it's way over from Vancouver and landing in London at Kensington Olympia.
This is my third year in a row and I couldn't be more excited. I love IMATS. The atmosphere, the people who all share the same passion and of course the massive range of makeup. Usually with a pretty decent discount.
Compared to previous years my lust list is pretty streamlined. But I think everyone goes a little crazy once they're in there and they see all the pretties!
For the first time Urban Decay and Yves Saint Laurent beauty have booths. I'm excited to check out some of the single eyeshadows I've seen from UD's summer collection. Holy duochromes!
I'm a little bit saddened after reading Leanne's post that OCC will not be there. It's a shame as I just assumed they were going. Whilst more stockists have started carrying them, the majority of them are online so it's always nice to see the lip tars in person and have a little play with them.
As always I will be hitting up Make Up For Ever. They've just recently launched in Debenhams but they usually have a third of their range, which is really great. Some of their products are a little on the pricy side but I think they're worth it, especially the waterproof products because they have some serious staying power.
There are a few other brands that I want to check out including Melt, Zoeva and my beloved Sugarpill. Though I'm sure they'll be other brands that catch my eye, there always is.
