For those of you who do not know what IMATS is, it is the acronym for the International Makeup Artist Trade Show. And it is taking place in NYC at Pier 94 this year! The date of said event is from Friday, April 11th 2014 – Sunday, April 13th 2014. However, only PRO Card Members on visit on the first day which is Friday. Afterwards, It is is general admission! Tickets are now on sale, get them while they’re around! I, myself must purchase a ticket before it’s too late! The general admission is said to be $55 online, and $65 at the door.

This will be my first time attending such show and I am highly excited about it! I even talked my best friend Kai into coming!

NOW. What takes place in IMATS, you ask? Magic. (LOL) The reason I know is because I have been living vicariously through other bloggers that have blogged about their experiences there. From the hundreds, and i mean hundreds of blogs that I’ve skimmed through, I have not heard not one flaw of such event.

‘It is a large convention where thousands of vendors, makeup artists and enthusiasts display and collect the best the industry has to offer’ . . I lie to you not. That was all it took for me to be sold on attending! According to zadidoll, The discounts range from 20%-50%+ ! This is awesome for aspiring mua’s who want to expand their kit! She also gave much needed tips on how every newbie should prepare for IMATS! *cough* comfy shoes will be on the top of the list for me. (check that out)
