Hey Lovies! I had a blast last Saturday attending the IMATS in NYC.  I was able to see my all time fav vloggers and every other makeup and beauty obsessed person in Tri-State area.  This was my first time going to the IMATS.  I missed it last year because I didn’t purchase my ticket on time #fail.  But this year I made sure to purchase them nice & early.  If you don’t know what the IMATS  are, it’s a makeup & beauty trade show where companies come and present their best beauty products.  The most important people in the industry come to IMATS.  There are also makeup presentations where you go on stage and makeup artists start beating faces.

It’s quite the experience because it’s jammed packed with people that are in line either to purchase products or to meet their fav makeup artists.  For instance the line to see Jaclyn Hill was ridiculous long.  I decided to skip the line and just snap a pic from the side like a stalking paparazzi.

I met Nicole Guerriero when I first walking into the convention.  She was taking a break outside with her boo when she kindly agreed to take a picture for me.  She was super kind to do that cuz I was clearly interrupting her break. Sorry Nicci <3

If you follow me on IG than you saw I met Carli Bybel, my fellow Jersey Girl.  She was sweet as pie and even more gorgeous in person.  Her posse were just as sweet and fashionable also <3

I had a chance to hit up a couple booths while I was there such as Lime Crime & OCC (two of my fav brands).  There were crazy lines in both booths.  But those lines weren’t as crazy as the one for the Sigma booth.  My unfortunate soul stood in line for what felt like forever to get my hands on the F80 Sigma Brush.  I will review that Sigma F80 brush with this month’s Product reviews.

I saw some dramatic makeup by professional artist that looks like it could have been in some Cirque du Soleil shows.  I really love that kind of artistry because it takes real vision to create art on the human body that pushes all boundaries.  All in all – had a great time and look forward to it next year <3

I can imagine seeing this look on the set of Games of Thrones. Don’t you??

When you look at this picture, do you see anything strange?  Do you see the woman’s face on the model’s body art?  Look Closely.

Hope you enjoyed this post.  Did you feel like you were there?  No?  Well it’s ok all that’s missing is the massive amount of people and the long lines.  Have a fabulous weekend Loves <3
