Attention makeup lovers!
Known simply as "The Show" in the makeup world, the London IMATS (International Makeup Artist Trade Show) takes place once again, in just over 2 months time. Terry Barber, director of MAC makeup artistry will be just one of the guest speakers at the two day event.
MUFE, MAC, Ben Nye, Crown Brushes aswell as a host of other cosmetic and tool lines will be parading their wares, in some cases offering generous discounts, in an attempt to grab your attention - and money ;-) This is the place to be if you want to learn new techniques, discover new products and play to your hearts content with new products without experiencing the pushy sales techniques often loathed in department store beauty halls.
I went this January and was left rather disappointed by the number of exhibitors present (I thought it would be bigger) and was adamant that I wouldn't return. However I've decided to give it another chance to see if the 2010 show can redeem itself in my eyes.
Date: January 30 & 31 2010
Location: Alexandra Palace, London
Current exhibitor list
** Update** Alex Box, Creative Director of Illamasqua has now been added to the guest speaker list.
