Heylo, BBs! If you’re a New Yorker, are obsessed with any makeup event, both, or none of the above, the International Makeup Artist Trade Show (IMATS) took place this weekend and I ended up going to the Sunday portion of the 3-day event (I thought I initially bought the Saturday ticket).
Despite the event being the first massive makeup-related gathering I’ve ever attended, I actually didn’t walk away with a lot of things in terms of bags and bags of makeup products from vendors who showed up to sell. Even as I type, my legs and feet are berating me for walking 15 blocks after circling Pier 94 (the venue) for a good 30 minutes looking for the specific booths I was hoping to raid products from.
So what got me raising an eyebrow at IMATS 2016? Well, the event itself didn’t wrong me. No, I actually had a good time attending this year because I just found out about it last year and had enough sense to buy my ticket in December last year.
What got me raising an eyebrow was HOW FUCKING PACKED THE DAMN VENUE WAS ON THE LAST DAY OF THE EVENT.
