I know it has been while since I have updated my blog and I am truly sorry that I left without announcement to where I went to,, >_< I took a mini vacation to Cali! The LONG MN winter *8+ month* has taken a toll on my body and also I havent taken anytime off since last May so it was much needed "me" time!! The last few days before I left was hectic and I didnt really had time to let you guys know and I am truly sorry about that,,,
Here is the winner to my last giveaway~
Drawn randomly with a number generator :)
I have sent you an email to get your info~
So first post on my cali trip will be about IMATS LA which is International Make-up Artist Trade Show that was held at Pasadena convention center on 6/24-6/26 which I was generously invited as press to share my experiences with you!
Unfortunately I got sick friday night, started my killer pain pms and woke up with a cold on Saturday and so I couldn't make it that day,, I was super bummed about that didnt want to cough and sneeze all over on other people... but I managed to go on Friday which was pro only event so it was much less people there and no waiting in line so that was nice but some of the venues were not open on Friday,,
Almost all the make-up company was present at this convention with most offering 20-40% off on their product for this event! Thank you Melissa for letting me experience my first ever IMATS!
here are my small haul from IMATS
Free gifts that were being handed out
DMK cosmetics powder puff and foundation palette refill
Sigma beauty mini brush and trio eyeshadows
my haul from Make Up For Ever been wanting 12 flash color case and 5 camouflage palette so I was super happy to get them with 40% off discount :D
Also was looking forward in getting me another Reel Creations palette in fleshtone~ this is alcohol activated makeup palette a must have for my makeup kit!
now on to the event~
This photos were taken on Friday Pro only event, not many people on this day,,
Highlight of Friday's event was seeing creator and founder of Make Up For Ever Dany Sanz do her magic on the stage! The whole application was very quick, I was in AWE the whole time lol
Saw Sigma beauty ladies all the way from also Minneapolis :)
