IMATS weekend was everything! Every January, IMATS (International Makeup Artist Trade Show) is held in Los Angeles, usually at the Pasadena Convention Center. There they have tons of beauty companies that showcase their products, but it is also a huge meet-up of a bunch of YouTube, and now instagram beauty gurus and makeup fanatics! I try to make it all the time, and since last year I went on a Saturday, this year I decided to go again on a Saturday, I think that is the best day to go!
Before IMATS, to kick off the weekend, I attended Mac Daddyy‘s Morphe Brushes release party in Glendale at Studio Kay. He gave us his full brush set and I got some amazing eyeshadows! I will show you guys in a haul so watch out for that on my channel! I will also make a separate blog post on it just for my Morphe Brushes makeup review!
Since the party was cocktail attire theme, I wore a black long sleeve sheer dress from Mistress Rocks! My girlfriends Sienna Spalding and Gigi Gorgeous were in attendance with me and I had so much fun! See what I wore and all details of my outfit here.
Then afterwards we stopped by the club Blind Dragon in West Hollywood, which was an asian-theme nightclub underground! I loved it because it had a secret feel to it, kind of like an underground club or something because the entrance is through a parking lot and the bathrooms are hidden as well. They have private Karaoke rooms supposedly. The lanterns read “fuku” which means happiness in Japanese, which I loved so I had to take a photo of it! (So Japanese of me!) lol.
When we got to IMATS it was amazing, I received so many amazing products from different companies including Million Dollar Tan, which I can’t wait to use, and I also bought a few items from City Cosmetics! I am going to haul them on my channel so keep your eyes open! What really caught my eye was The Makeup Light vanity! They had these amazing lights on a vanity and I really wanted to purchase it! I think it’s a great set up for beauty gurus and who do tutorials! Once I get it I will post a photo! I definitely feel like I need it for my tutorials because it would be more clear for you guys and you will all get a better view on my makeup applications!
It’s everything! After that Sienna and I rushed over to her meet and greet for Princess Hair Shop for a little and then we went to the NYX Cosmetics party at the Ace Hotel!
I wore an American Apparel crop top and a leatherette skirt from Mistress Rocks. I also paired it with my Louboutin Daffodils. I haven’t worn those for a minute but my Saint Laurent shoes are actually back at the store because they broke!! How sad!
Sienna and I stayed at the NYX party til forever like 10pm when it closed so we actually missed out on getting the goodie bags! lol
Afterwards we went out in West Hollywood to Rasputin and danced the night away!I actually got booked for a gig in Vegas but I am glad I declined the job and stayed in town for IMATS because this was one memorable weekend and I truly loved it!
Here are some photos with some of you subbies and I! I truly love you guys oh so much, you guys brighten my day and made me who I am today! I love you and I mean it, thank you for supporting me and I will support you all too!
Here is a video recap of what happened throughout IMATS weekend!
