International Makeup Artist Trade Show Coming Soon

It’s exactly a month’s time to the biggest event ever for us Australian beauty bloggers… and if you have not followed our conversation in twitter or what’s been like a fever around the blogs… if you’ve guessed IMATS then you are totally right!


The International Makeup Artists Trade Show aka IMATS is yet to set another mark in our land of down under here in heart of Sydney this coming September on the 24th and 25th. It will be even bigger and better. For those who went last year and might have been a little disappointed, do come to this year’s, apart from more brands and stands the beauty bloggers of Australia will be there – I’m serious, there are probably around 80+ of us!

What’s more is that once you’re in, you can attend seminars and talks and demonstrations of some of the leading makeup artists in the world including Napoleon Perdis, Donna Mee, Rae Morris and Tami Lane (who’s responsible for the makeup for Lord of The Rings, Narnia and The Hobbit).
