IMATS in New York - WANT TO SEE WHO I SAW!!!!!!

This was so exciting - IMATS was held for the first (1) time in NYC!!!!!  The event was for 2 days on April 9 & 10 in Soho.  I was fortunate to work with Eve Pearl Cosmetics and team for the second time so that was very exciting as well.  There were so many companies, but limited and the experience once again was great!!!!!

We had to help with "set up" so I was there Friday.

Saturday, April 9th - First Day of the Show and doors opened at 8:30 a.m.

We had to be there at 7:30 a.m. but I had to drop my boys off at the babysitter so I came in at 9:30 a.m. and oh boy was there a LINE....
This is the beginning of the line!!!!

If you think the line was bad it was BANANAS inside!!!!   OK, so when I got upstairs, everyone had their posts and I immediately started to work.  I was asked to keep in charge of everyone who signed a consent form.  Eve Pearl gives a complimentary make over, but one must sign a consent form agreeing to it prior.  The part that gets tricky is that each client gets a photo shoot for a "before and after" and its emailed to the client.  So many people and so many photo shoots and at the end of the day a BIG SCRAMBLE of who is who.  Therefore, I started to work a system by writing a small description of the client and working with the photographer to get the photo ID's (before & after).  I would write this info on each form.  Eve Pearl's booth was CRAZY that I had to form a line for those who were getting a makeover.  The wait was for 15-30 minutes.  By mid day, I began to do makeovers.  At times, when I was working with the consent forms my fingers would each to pick up a brush, lol.  After a few hours, I saw Koren from EnKore on YouTube and he was ALONE, which was UNBELIEVABLE.  As I took my break, I went to greet him and took a photo.  Koren is a Master Instructor and he's just awesome!!  Check out his YT channel -

After meet & greet (so I thought), I began to shop.  I really wanted to check out Inglot but they must have been the most busiest company at the show!!!!  So I stopped at Mehron, which is one of my favorite stores....

After making my purchase, Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics (O.C.C) was next to Mehron and I have NEVER tried there products so I walked over.  I knew Lauren aka 'QueenofBlening' was going to be there and she gave a review of there NEW Lip Tars so I went to check that out.  As I walked away, guess who I saw...

Lauren and Me
You can check out her videos -
She was so sweet!!!

So after taking this picture, I saw another YouTube guru and as I approached him - it was Josh aka 'Petrilude'

Check out his YT channel -

I was a little surprised because for some reason I thought he was taller, but he was also sweet. 

I continued to look around for a few more minutes before running back and took some pics of attractions ---

Temptu MUA who I met during my waltz'n around came to visit E.P's Booth.  She was so sweet!!!

This model got a complete body paint over with designs of Batman and Superman on his back.  It was hot!!!!

Sunday, April 10 - last day of the show and it was another crazy day.  I immediately noticed that many people brought their children including YOUNG children.  I was so surprised how well many of them behaved (toddlers).  I must say today was even more busier than Saturday.  I decided to continue to work with consent forms again because I had a bit fun with it.  Most of the day, I spent working on the floor so I got a chance to meet & greet many YT gurus--whoohooo!!!   So who else I saw....

Tatiana aka 'Beatfacehoney' 

She's so cute and was also sweet!!

Nikkie aka 'Nikkie' (LOL)

Now, meeting Nikki really BLEW me away cause I would have never imagined that she was SO TALL!!! She was such a sweetie!!!

Nini aka 'Niniluvsmakeup' 

Nini was such a sweetheart!!  She does some wonders with the color 'Blue' (right color for her too).  

Last, I was greatly happy to have met Tate.  He was one of the finalist on Syfi's show 'Face Off.' 

Other attraction pics -

Royal Brushes....

Wolfie (I think)

She was so nice and posed for me the final look

Sorry, I can't remember what company the following worked for:


This girl was the bomb!!!  She audition for Syfi Season II 'Face Off' and modeled and created this look...AWESOME!!!  I wish her the best.  She was so sweet.

I will post another blog as my mini haul on what I got from IMATS.
