Better late than never I guess! 

Here are some pics of IMATS TORONTO (International Makeup Artist Trade Show) from this past November 2013. 

New venue and new location this year which made it easier to get to. It was held downtown at the Toronto Covention centre.

This time around it felt smaller and fewer exhibitors, less deals and even some vendors where charging tax! Whaaa?? 

This was my 5th time attending IMATS and unfortunately, I left disappointed.  I know, I know, I should be grateful I even live near a city that is lucky enough to host an IMATS, But I found too much hype and not enough delivery. 

Ok, enough negativity.  

The awesome part was that I found that more beauty bloggers came out to IMATS this time around. 
I met a few Beauty Bloggers who were decked out on self promoting tshirts and straight out handing out postcards & business card to everyone. 
Also spotted a team of ladies, yes a team of 4-6 ladies walking the venue with shirts with their blog name and handing out self promo cards.  Smart ladies! Bravo. 

I got to see & catch up with fellow Makeup Artists whom I admire and never get to see, but follow their work via social media. Met and spotted a few "YouTube" gurus. 

Saw many Makeup Artist doing amazing work and creating magic on their models and the student competition was again a highlight for me. 

I finished the day by listening to Rae Morris' lecture on "how to become an editorial Makeup Artist", the lecture was AMAZING, she was so informative, witty and very inspiring. 

Didn't buy much, got bdellium brushes, a bigger set bag, some disposable mascara wands, a Rae Morris book, graftobian foundation palette and some lashes.

Amazing body art happening all over.

Brushes, makeup, supplies and so much more
