I will be at speaking at IMATS (International Make-Up Artist Trade Show) in NYC this Saturday, April 14th.
*You don't need to be a professional make-up artist to come, there are no age limits- you just need to buy a ticket to get inside!
There are amazing make-up deals and discounts. Make-Up Forever is always 40% off everything- but the line to buy it can be up to 3 hours long! It's crazy! And you get to see all the cool gadgets, brushes, special effects supplies, competitions, pro only lines- I love it!

I will be speaking SATURDAY, April 14th at 2pm
(unless they change it for some reason- I'll post it on facebook if they do) on the MAINSTAGE.
*please get there early to get a seat- seating is limited and in LA people were getting into fights in line- please be kind and just get there early so everyone stays nice and friendly. And in TORONTO there weren't enough seats so people just stood outside and listened.
MEET AND GREET:
right after I speak on the mainstage: 3-3:45pm
(I won't have much time since they only gave me 45 minutes- so it will have to be a "speedy meet and greet" I guess)...I will talk to them and see if there's any way we can make it longer, but another speaker is right after me in the same room.
MY TIPS for IMATS:
these are the booths I recommend going to first because they either sell out of product or the lines are way too long if you go later-
Make-Up Forever- I've seen the line wait time up to 4 hours long)
Crown Brush (this booth gets so crazy you can hardly see the brushes!)
NYX (this booth gets a little crazy too)
Dinair Airbrush Booth- they have crazy deal son airbrush kits at IMATS!
ZUCA Bags- the rolling make-up case I love- crazy discounted prices there.
Go to all the booths you want to see first- make a list and then head there right away before they sell out, then go look around!
PS. Comment below if you'd like me to do a "how to travel" with your make-up video, since I will be packing it up to head for NYC! I love New York and I can't wait- it will be one of my fastest trips to NYC but I'll love every second!
huge hugs and I can't wait to hug you guys for real and in person!!!...yay-ness, kande
