IMATS NYC 2014 Recap

Lately it feels like all I've been talking about has been the anticipated event -- IMATS (International Makeup Artist Trade Show). The trade show is for makeup artists and other professionals in the business, but it's also open to the public. The event consists top brands showcasing their newest and most popular products at a discounted price. My favorite part of the event is seeing everyone's style and the most beautiful makeup applications you've ever laid your eyes on. I also look forward to seeing my favorite beauty gurus! The NYC weather was gorgeous -- almost reaching 80 degrees. It felt like the real kick off for Spring.

 After searching for the perfect tulle skirt I found it on Space46Boutique.com, and purchased it months ago, specifically for this event. A skirt like this deserves its own blog post! Tomorrow, on the blog, I will post more photos featuring the skirt with details and answer all the questions you guys posted on Instagram.

I attended the event with one of my best friend's Jenny and fellow blogger Brittany Connors. Our first and practically only stop was Lime Crime. The line literally started outside the venue and we stood there for 2 hours! Lime Crime lipsticks are always sold out online and this was their first year at IMATS so the long line was understandable. I was able to score all the lipsticks I wanted -- thankfully they weren't sold out. The shades I purchased were:

  • Coquette
  • Airborne Unicorn
  • Geradium
  • Countessa Fluorescent

And from their Velvetine collection I got the Pink Velvet which has been sold out on their website for what feels like ages. Lime Crime packaging and color payoff is incredible and worth the hype. I might actually order a couple more shades. We attempted to stop by the Sigma booth but that was an even longer line than Lime Crime.  All in all I was happy with my purchases and as much as I wanted to buy more makeup, I don't really need anything else lol.

This year IMATS was extra special for me because I got to meet so many of you who actually watch my videos. I was overwhelmed by how sweet you all are and can't thank you enough for making the event an unforgettable experience.
