This weekend, every beauty junkie’s favourite show comes to town – the International Makeup Artist Trade Show (IMATS). It’s an exciting yet dangerous event (sorry in advance, wallet) and even though crowds have grown significantly in recent years, it’s a good chance to stock up on some favourite and hard-to-find brands at trade show pricing, making it worth the fight against hordes of people.
This year, I’m going with a list and goal in mind of adding to my kit considerably. I have a really great base right now, but definitely need to add to it in certain areas so before I head to my nearest beauty store here in Toronto, I’m going to get what I can at the show. Today I’m sharing some of my wishlist items – if you’re going, I’d love to hear what you’re hoping to haul!
Having a range of concealers and correctors on hand is so important, and this palette includes a wide range of essentials. It also comes in light, medium deep and dark, and depending on what’s available I’m hoping to grab the medium palette at the bare minimum.
I’m definitely going to grab a Z Palette or two for consolidating packaging in my kit. I also hope to get my hands on some palettes for my lipsticks, as they’re a pain to lug around.
I already have a pretty extensive set of brushes, but I definitely need and want more. I’ll be looking to grab brushes from Morphe and Real Techniques – two brands that marry quality and budget-friendly cost.
I love the formula of both of these, and will do a little shopping for me and a little for my kit!
