I've been getting a lot of emails recently asking me what is IMATS?, When is it?, Where is it?, and so forth. I realized my last post on IMATS wasn't so thorough when I started to get all the emails afterward so I figured I would tell you now.
What is it?
I have a post from last year where I tell you what it is, which you can find here http://www.lipglossgossip.com/2009/06/imats.html.
IMATS or the International Makeup Artist Trade Show is a big show with makeup exhibitors, artists, and classes. You can purchase tickets to enter the exhibitor floor only or you can get tickets to attend the classes as well.
There are demos at all the exhibitor booths. You can swatch and play with all the makeup.
When is it?
IMATS is this coming weekend June 26 and 27 in Pasadena, CA.
All of the makeup is sold at a discount so that is great if you need to stock up on things. Discounts at each booth varies.
Classes VS Exhibitor floor only tickets
I have also been asked which tickets are best, but that's really up to you.
If you plan on just shopping then the exhibitor floor tickets is all you need but if you are interested in the classes then it would be best to get the full priced tickets.
Who will be there?
I have also gotten some emails from people asking me which YouTube beauty people will be there. I don't really watch beauty videos, so you would have to contact them and ask them. I did see in the IMATS schedule there will be a YouTube class or question and answer type of thing going on, on Sunday. I'm sure whoever is going from the YouTube beauty community has addressed this in there videos if not you can ask them because I can't really say. :)

All the information for IMATS you need can be found here http://imatsshow.com/los/los_index.php
I think that answered all the emails I have received. I hope that helped! :)
I'll be there both days because I like the classes. It's going to be a lot of fun. If your at all interested you should go because you'll have a great time! It's a really great expierence because you get to meet big time Celebrity makeup artists and speak with representatives from makeup companies and get information on new products coming out, and you learn a lot! It's a great time and everyone should go! :)
