June 22nd - Pro Night --Last year I wasn't able to come in town in time to make it to pro night, but this year was different. I was so happy to get to go to pro night because there were NO lines and NO crowds...how amazing! I was also allowed to bring a guest in (my hubby, he hated it! lol!). I just arrived, checked in at the table (with no lines), got my pro badge and wrist band, and went on my way to buy the stuff I had on my list. Here's what I bought on pro night.

June 23rd - 24th, Saturday and Sunday --Although I bought a 2-day pass, I ended up only going to one class on Sunday and leaving right afterwards. Between Pro Night and Saturday, I had seen everything and bought everything that I wanted to see and buy. I really like going to IMATS mainly for the seminars though. As a makeup artist, I typically get a greater pro discount with all the lines on a regular basis, so unless there are really great deals, I don't really ever go to IMATS to just shop. I like to take advantage of the classes. Paying $30 for a day's worth of seminars is a great deal. Saturday I probably attended 3-4 classes and Sunday I just did one. I wasn't too interested in any of the other classes for that day. Here's a few other things I bought on Saturday.

Just a silly photo of me having a drink with Franky at IMATS :))
After I left LA I went to Las Vegas with my husband. Here are a couple random photos from that!

IMATS LA 2013
Makeup Artist Magazine, which is the company that puts on IMATS, announced back in June that going forward in 2013 and on, IMATS LA will be held in January instead of June. This highly annoys me. If I'm going to take a little vacation out to LA, I don't want to do it when it's cold. Because the 2012 and 2013 LA IMATS will only be 6-7 months apart, I won't be going next year, but perhaps I'll go to the NYC one. I believe the NYC one is held in March or April.
