Hello lovelies!

 On April 10, 2011, I attended the International Makeup Artists Trade Show in Manhattan. I met up with  friend while I was there, and we struggled through crowds of makeup-loving folks, industry professionals (Kevin James Bennett walked right past me and I nearly fainted) and booths selling tons of brushes, products, and other necessities (hey, we DO need makeup). Despite the heavy crowds and lack of oxygen, I managed to snap a few cool photos.

Sorry for the  tiny photos. I had to use my  camera phone and it doesn’t zoom in or do anything fancy.

Here’s what I bought:

Stainless Steel Mixing Palette and Spatula

Mehron Metallic Powders in Gold & Silver

OCC Lip Tars in Tarred, Clear, Feathered, & Rx

Eve Pearl Tan Salmon Concealer & Trio A Concealer

If anyone went to IMATS, let me know how it went for you!

Beauty/product junkie hiding behind the title of certified makeup artist (that's the excuse I use for my makeup addiction). I am a human pet to two cats, a full time college student majoring in Cultural Anthropology and an organic food enthusiast (read: organic food freak) who cooks, bakes, and has not burned down the kitchen (I'm waiting for it). New York has put up with all of this thus far, so here is where I reside. I can be reached for comments, questions, complaints, and incoherent babbling at:
