Cari's Cosmetic Obsessions: Upcoming Beauty Events

Hello Beauties,
Here to tell you about some upcoming events that your sure to enjoy!  (In no particular order of course!)
IMATS : International Makeup Artists Trade Show it comes once a year to five different cities:
Toronto:  November 12&13 2011 
London: February 4&5, 2012
New York: April 14&15 2012,
Los Angeles: June 23&24, 2012
Vancouver: July 21&22, 2012
Sydney: September 24&25 2011

Last year I went to IMATS New York and I discovered many hidden treasures of the makeup world at pretty good prices. I found that my ticket literally paid for itself with the many discounts. I purchased brushes, lashes, the wonderful naked cosmetics pigment stacks, OCC lip tars and much much more! There are also seminars through the day where makeup artists will discuss the brand and perform a makeup application demonstration.  I attended a Cover Fx seminar that was very informative where Wanda Longo was the speaker. This is the second annual New York IMATS and its moving to a bigger and better location Pier 94 located at 711 12th Avenue. The tickets cost around $40.00 and you can purchase them at www.makeupmag.com 
If your still on the fence about it you can check the www.imats.net website for the list of vendors and seminars offered in your city or check out youtube for videos on IMATS.
If makeup is what you lust TRUST you wont be disappointed!!

There’s another Makeup event coming soon, The Makeup Show Holiday pop up shop! Now this baby I have been dying to get in but you need to be a pro for the regular Make Up Show. Unfortunately I do not have Pro status YET!! But the Holiday Pop up shop is open to everybody! YAY!! Tickets go for $20.00  and the list of discounted makeup brands is pretty awesome! Here are the ones on my shopping list:
Add pro discounts that’s enough to make me squeal, and squeal I did as I purchased my ticket. Tickets are available for Friday, December 2nd 5-10pm and Saturday December 3rd 10am-6:00pm.  It will be located at the Metropolitan Pavilion, 123 West 18th Street, 4th Floor, NYC 10011.
