IMATS Toronto Pictures

Currently smelling: a pumpkin spice candle! mmm...
Currently watching: Koren's IMATS haul on YouTube
Currently feeling: bad..stupid migraine

This is part one of my IMATS talk. Today will be some pictures from the event and tomorrow will be my haul. What a fun time! I'll warn you now that this is picture heavy. I had a great time and I'm already making plans and saving up for next year's event. I'll take my professional camera next time, as well. I wasn't sure if I was allowed to take it this year, so I was stuck using my Point & Shoot. Oh well! Stay tuned for tomorrow's IMATS Haul!

Look at all of that makeup! Don't you just want to kiss it?!

Not gonna lie...the baby was a bit creepy. That's only because the head was as big as my TV!

The student X-Men themed competition started their show for judging. This guy was an amazing model for his artist. He glided across the stage, acted pompous, and like an ape. It was A+!

I feel like this is the makeup that should have won. The costume, the effect, and everything put together was excellent.

This was third place. I thought the look was ok, but kind of basic. I liked the horseshoes used as weapons, though. Nice touch!

This was second place. It's an alright look, but compared to some of the others...In my personal opinion, I have no idea how this makeup got 2nd place compared to the looks it was going against.

The first place look took home $1000. Not a bad prize at all! Do I agree with the winner chosen? Not exactly. I felt like this look definitely should have placed, just not in first. Glad I wasn't a judge though, because they were all well done!

I filmed Koren (EnKoreMakeup on YouTube) filming Elessa (Pursebuzz on YouTube). I'm so lame. :)

I took in Elessa's Holiday Look class. She's so petite and tiny! The camera wasn't picking up the colors she was using during the tutorial, but I did see the look afterward off the stage and it looked lovely.

I was going to get a picture of Elessa and then hunt down Koren. He ended up coming right over, so it was the perfect moment to get a picture with them both. I was going to take it myself because I know which angles I (and everyone else) look better in. A girl offered to take it for me instead, so I reluctantly agreed. Unfortunately, she took the picture straight on. Seriously, who looks that great when a picture is taken like that? Not many! I appreciate her kindness to help, though!

There were a few body paint artists at the show, so I saw a few girls go by. I admire their self-esteem and willingness to walk around the show half-naked with only paint on their bodies. I blush at the mere thought! Kudos to them and the wonderful artistry represented!

I definitely spent quite a bit of money, but I knew I was going...so I pulled back from purchasing a lot of makeup beforehand (except for drugstore brand things to review). It was worth it! They offered plenty of discounts and no taxes. :) You should look into going to an IMATS next year!

maybe I will, ohhh gosh...I was better off not being into makeup.
IMATS is really good for someone in canada, cause honestly we pay so much more for everything plus tax, and we never have amazing sales that they have down in the US
