IMATS 2012


Hope you're all enjoying the snow... and you're not all too cold ;)

Yesterday I went to IMATS... had such an awesome time. Right now, I want to become a makeup artist!

I'm going to let the pictures do the talking... there are a few of them :D

Ally Pally - such a pretty building. I was really excited to go, I'd never been there before.. Definitely want to go again.

For any Harry Potter fans - Golbin, Fenir Greyback & George Weasley prosthetics

Sam and Nic! :D (aka Pixiwoo)

Onto the Illamasqua haul!

I picked up eyeshadows in Boomerang, Courtesan and Imagine, liquid metal in Electrum, cream blush in Sob, eyeliner in Please, Illumine oil in Volt.

I got the kabuki brush for £10, and it retails for £39 now in shops :D

So pretty! It has blue and purpley sparkles. £7.50

3 eyeshadows for £10, blush and liquid gold £5 each

From L-R Boomerang, Imagine, Courtesan 

From L-R Please, Electrum, Sob

I had so much fun! 

It was awesome getting to see brands I don't normally see, like NYX, OCC, Mac pro, Inglot... 

Also got to see Sam & Nic from Pixiwoo, which was exciting. 

Can't wait to go again next year!
