The International Make-Up Artists Trade Show (IMATS) in New York was so much fun and everything I expected. IMATS is basically a makeup convention where numerous makeup artists, enthusiasts, gurus, and vendors come together to mix and mingle.  If you are truly into make-up this is the place to be.  IMATS is an annual event held in 6 different cities (Los Angeles, New York, Vancouver, London, Sydney, and Toronto).  In New York I did plenty of shopping and got lots of goodies.  Here is a guick glance of my time at IMATS.

I absolutely love this makeup sponge.  About 6 months ago, my dear friend Ericka and I were conversing about makeup and came across this product.  There were so many rave reviews about this product and every MUA we came across loved it.  We both were eager to try it, but Ms. Ericka beat me to the punch in getting the sponge first.  Little did I know she had a surprise for me one day while we were out and about.  During this outing she unexpectedly pulled out a beauty blender and indicated that it was mine.  Ericka and my god daughter Ari are great for surprising me. Thanks to her I have been hooked ever since.

Contouring…Oh The Struggle!!

Contouring has always been a struggle for me and I’m still learning.  Usually I use Blunt from Mac to contour my face or I use my Lise Watier Color Corrector (LWCC) wheel under my foundation to do the trick (for highlighting and contouring).  Both work well for me but I am always looking for new tricks and products.
