IMATS LONDON 2013 + Haul

So last weekend 22nd-23rd June I was fortunate enough to get a blogger press pass to attend IMATS. If you don't know, IMATS is an international makeup artist trade show that runs every year at Vancouver, Sydney, Toronto, Los Angeles, New York and London. I think tickets were around £45 to get in, in order to get a wristband, which is pretty steep but for the experience, discounts and tutorials its worth it all.

I was lucky to be able to go to the event for Bonafide-Supernova (click the link to see more about the day) and report what happened over the weekend. This year it was held at Kensington Olympia, the olympia national hall, and it was great to be amongst professional makeup artists, makeup students, youtubers and fellow beauty lovers. 

I particularly loved the talks and tutorials that happened throughout the days with tutorials from the likes of Terry Barber (MACs makeup director), Gary Cockerill (Celebrity makeup artist), Neill Gorton (Prosthetics/Special effects designer) and many many more. I was literally gobsmacked at how someone can be transformed with makeup and prosthetics to become some fantasy alien lol.  

The biggest thing I think most of us beauty lovers were excited about was the nice amount of discount that was available at the makeup stalls, from cosmetic companies such as mac, makeup forever and nars to name a few. My favorite discount was Nars Cosmetics doing 60% off everything there *faints* it was crazy. The lines to buy things was out of this world also and went on forever, but for those discounts you can't really complain can you?

Here are a few things I picked up along the weekend...
