Hey guys
Sooo I was lucky enough to go to IMATS. I had never been before so didn’t really know what to expect but I was so happily surprised. It was much bigger than expected and it had many different make up stands where you could buy make up at discounted prices. At most of the stalls there were lessons/talks/showings which was amazing to see! I think my favourite part of the day was meeting Louise Young and watching her apply make up and talk us through the process. She is so down to earth and such a nice lady, I felt very honoured to have met her. I also watched a prosthetic cut be done and I found that amazing. I think I will buy the kit later this year as I am looking into going in to that part of the make up industry.
Not only did I watch but I bought...I bought so much lol in the end Gaelle (the Makeup Fairy) had to restrain me lol!
So this post is to show you what I bought x

From MAC I bought these 5 eye shadow colours; Chrome Yellow, Tempting, Amber Lights, Cranberry, Soot.
I really wanted a bright yellow and this is perfect and I brought the Amber Lights because it has my name in it lol but actually it is a beautiful goldish, orangey colour and Cranberry is just lovely and I couldn’t resist!
Then I found the Louise Young counter and it was the best part of my day, meeting Louise Young was the highlight of my day!

This is me and Louise x
 At the Louise Young stand is where I did my credit card damage, but I just loved everything!
I have wanted the ‘Louise Young Essential Palette’ for nearly a year now and finally I bought it! The colours are fabulous and essential for every working Make up artist. The colours in the palette are sooo useful you could make EVERY brow colour from it. The terracotta colour is just phenomenal and I think I will use it a lot. Louise said it is best used on darker skin tones.

from left to right = Ting, Maowi, Pom Pom, Black bear, Sislet.
I brought 3 LY brushes which are:

left to right = Ly34, Ly38A, Ly25
Can’t wait to use that big fat foundation brush, I’ll probably be able to do my foundation in about 4 seconds with it lol x
I also bought 3 more brushes, this time I bought them at ‘Crown’.

From left to right = the 1st one doesn’t have a name, C170-2, C217 Bent Liner
All I can say is that I can’t wait til next year as now I’m an IMATS ADDICT!
Love Amber x
