IMATS London 2018

It's that time of year again when IMATS comes to London. The International Makeup Artist Trade Show tours in various locations around the world every year. One of these places is London and is held at Olympia. I went to the show last weekend, and as usual enjoyed every moment.

The show is a great way to see various makeup talent and has different demos from body painting to beauty makeup. It's also a good way to pick up some good bargains from various brands that have different discounts on.

I went on the Saturday. Sunday tickets are available, as well as full weekend ones. I find that Saturday is the best day out of the two to go. I enjoyed looking at all of the different demos and items for sale. 

I did a lot of shopping and actually left with bags full of goodies. Here is what I bought.

Royal Langnickel Brush Set

MAC Blot Powder

Melanie Mills Gleam On The Glow

Urban Decay Setting Spray, Primer Potion, Lipsticks

Inglot Eyeshadows

Mehron Brush Cleaner, Paints

Nanshy Brush Holder And Brush Set

Da Vinci Brushes

Revolution Pro Eyeshadows And Brow Pomade

Ben Nye Blusher Palette And Pressed Colour Palette

NARS Eyeliner

I recommend IMATS as a must have visit for anyone interested in makeup. If going, make sure you are wearing comfy shoes as you will be on your feet for most of the day. Cash is King!! While many stands took cards, quite a few were cash only. So make sure you take plenty of cash with you too.

I really enjoyed IMATS this year and look forward to the next one.
