IMATS 2011

Hola chicas sorry long time no posts but was having some issues with the media card and could not upload pics. Well enough of that I wanna share with you lovelies some of the loot from IMATS this past weekend.

Let me just start off  by saying what a great experience it was and most of all I am so glad to have had Candy from Curves Ahead Makeup blog as a host! Yes she is super nice and her blog is one of my faves but she is even sweeter in person. Once she picked me and my friend Patty from the airport we just started rambling on and on like old friends we totally clicked. Thank you Candy for spending so much time with us during our brief stay in Pasadena! I love blogging and this community as it has put me in the way of the sweetest, nicest, and most creative people I would have not met otherwise or crossed paths with alot of you have become part of my everyday life and so special to me as you all share some part of your lives with me.

IMATS was super packed and they had an astounding amount of makeup, hair, beauty, tools, you name it anything beauty related. They also had fashion shows, classes, and a monster makeup competition which really showcased the talents of the makeup artists as the monsters were indeed scary. I was in awe at all the setups of the booths and the merchandise that I probably did not buy as much as I could have but I did snap alot of pics. Plus there is always next year right girls?! Wink wink ; )

Candy, Myself, and Patty

Eve Pearl was non stop she has so much energy.

Trying on headpieces so cute.

In the end we did do some damage between all 3 of us.

Went out  on the town afterwards. Makeup was courtesy of Candy so we put her skills to work she is so good at makeup.

Sigma booth we got free samples from the sweet reps. The girls made fun of me for this pic saying I wanted to be far from them lol.
