IMATS 2011- Highlights

I’ve decided to breakdown my IMATS trip into three posts. The first (this one) will be an overview of everything that happened with lots of pictures. The second will include the events the booths were doing (makeovers, new product demos, etc) and I took part in. Finally, the third will be a haul post of all the products I got at the show. Hope you enjoy them all!!
A quick rewind… If you read my post on past IMATS shows you know I have been anxiously waiting for IMATS 2011 to come. Every year I have so much fun trying out new products, seeing what is new in the beauty world and taking pictures of all the makeup looks around me. It’s really nice to have a weekend dedicated to cosmetics and makeup artistry. It’s a weekend I look forward to every year, and this year was no exception. Every year I try to have a game plan with my friends to ensure we get to do everything we want to do. Some years a game plan helps, while other years there is no point in having one. I hope these pictures give you an idea of the excitement at the show. If you were there tell me about your experience in the comments below!!!!
