I got a bit delayed in posting a few more photos from IMATS, so here they are:
Some are artistic, like the one above, some are beautiful and fantasy-like, like the one below:
As mentioned before, body painting demonstrations are HUGE at IMATS, and some of the designs are so detailed and creativ. A lot of the models are 90% naked, but they are wearing underwear (which usually gets painted over), and little pasties.
Speaking of intricate designs, check out this next one....
Isn't that simple amazing! I would love to create such masterpieces one day...
...but until that day comes, I will continue my passion for beauty makeup. There were lots of free goodies I received at IMATS, such as Nailene French Manicure Kits and Urban Decay products, and plenty of giveaways...I even won a fancy schmancy wine accessories kit! Combine that with the stuff I bought and I came home with two large bagfuls of goodies:
Minus the wine set, here is a glimpse of some of the stuff I got:
I did get a few more items, which you will hear about as I get a chance to review them. The coolest things I got were brushes from Royal & Langnickel, eyelashes for $1 each, and the Parian Spirit brush cleaner (review will be in my next post).
If you get an opportunity to go to IMATS, I highly recommend it. Whether you are a makeup junkie or a professional, you will find be entertained by the numerous demos and cool products, not to mention free stuff. =)
