Well the makeup even of the year is almost here, what is it I here you say, none other that the International Makeup Artist Trade Show or IMATS as its commonly known.
It coincides with the other most anticipated event that is the ABBW2011, the Australian Beauty Bloggers Weekend. A whole weekend of amazing event created by the incredible Jacie from http://www.youvegotnail.com/, and Kimmi from http://www.theplasticdiaries.com/, with over 80 beauty bloggers from around the country in attendance it promises to be a cracker of a weekend.
This will be the third year I will be making the trip to Sydney town to join in the festivities.
There is a fab tag floating around the blogosphere all about IMATS so I thought I would have a go.
What am I most looking forward to????
That’s hard to narrow down, meeting some of the wonderful people I have “met” online but have yet to have the pleasure of their company, Seeing all the new products and tools available, and being surrounded by like minded people who share my love for all things makeup.
What am I hoping to purchase????
I’m hoping to pick up some more brushes from crown and royal and lannickle. I also want to get some more inglot freedom systems and some more of their lip paints.  
I really want to have a look at what’s new in airbrush makeup I’m always on the hunt for something new and different. I am also interested in finding a portable airbrush system.
I will probably pick up some OCC lip tars, it doesn’t matter how many I own I can always find a new colour that inspires me.
I will also be on the hunt for a new liquid/ cream foundation to add to my kit.
I am also really excited to check out the hakuhodu brushes, I have seen them previously but I am keen to add some to my brush collection soon.
There are two many wonderful retailers to mention I am sure I will make some unplanned purchases due to the multitude of awesomeness that is IMATS, I can hardly contain my excitement.
