Last weekend I went to my first International Makeup Artist Trade Show (IMATS) in Sydney & had a wonderful time assisting the lovely & amazing body artist Yolanda Bartram at her Body FX stall. It was a really amazing weekend - though the show is considerably smaller than the one in London it was a great opportunity to see what the Australian makeup world has to offer and to meet some really awesome people. I especially enjoyed meeting Eliza Campagna and Brian Sipe and watching their demos over the weekend at the ACMUSE stand, Donna Mee's highly informative talks on working in the industry - and meeting the one and only R2D2 & his creator who were cruising around the show on Sunday afternoon. Big thanks also to the amazing Adam Johanson, the lovely girls at The Face Paint Shop and TK's Lashes, Christine & Nick from Scotty's and the guys from Frends Beauty Supply. It was great to meet all of you & I'm looking forward to seeing you again - hopefully some of you in the not too distant future!
