IMATS 2012... My Plans For IMATS...

IMATS is just two days away now and I'm getting mixed emotions... I'm absolutely dazzled at the idea that HauteFuture, a blog which was just an idea this time next year, has been invited as press for one of the largest international make-up conventions the globe has ever seen. I feel so lucky! I'm super excited, but also kind of nervous as I've never been to IMATS before and I know it's a huge beauty cult event and I don't want to look like a total amateur... not least because I've written myself a little itinerary of the seminars I'd like to attend. Is that a bit nerdy? Nonetheless, here are the seminars I'm hoping to hit, in amongst the shopping and a cheeky visit or two to the VIP section which I referred to in my previous IMATS blog... I've borrowed the seminar descriptions and photographs from the IMATS website.

So I know that may be a ridiculously ambitious itinerary... I don't know how far apart these stages are based or how over-subscribed they will each by, but I'm hoping to at least make it to three of those things per day, so we'll see how it goes! 

Are you going to the International Makeup Artist Trade Show? Have you ever been to a similar event? Which seminars would you go to, given the chance?

Expect OOTD posts to come and hopefully a haul or two also... I'll be posting a full write up of each day too, so hopefully it will all go well and I'll have awesome stuff to report. I literally can't wait!

Love

    1. I know, it can be a bit pricy :( The best thing to do is probably make that your only big beauty haul of the year, that way it's likely that you'd actually end up saving money because of all the discounts and bargains... although it might be difficult not spending the rest of the year!
