IMATS: Part One!

I had the amazing chance to attend the 2011 Vancouver IMATS this past weekend, and I could not have had a better time! We got to check out tons of brands (all of which were having wicked show specials) such as Make Up For Ever, Crown Brushes, Royal & Langnickel, Cover FX and more! Not to mention we got to cheer on the Blanche MacDonald Students competing in the IMATS: Student Competition. One of which was Isabelle Champigny, my classmate from Blanche!

The theme was tribal beauty, and here is a closer look at Isabelle's makeup design! Points were given for design, technique, and overall look. Extra things like the outfit and hair definitely finished off a look!

Blanche took the top three spots for the Beauty/Fantasy Competition! Isabelle won third place, while Duk Soo Veronica Cho and Shawnna Downing from Blanche took home first and second respectively.

Other highlights of the day? We got to see demos done by almost every booth, especially the amazing demos by Jenna Kuchera and Timothy Hung for the Blanche MacDonald Center! Check out the lashes used in Timothy's demo above! Paperself zebra lashes!

We also had the chance to sit down and listen to presentations by the Vancouver local IATSE, a seminar by Eve Pearl,  and see more amazing makeup demos, including the mutant pig at the FameHog booth!
