I am so excited to be heading to the International Makeup Artist Trade Show in Toronto for the weekend. I’m having a quick photo opp and lunch on Saturday with other Canadian Beauty Blogger Network Members. It’ll be the first time I get to meet them in person!! Plus there’s the actual trade show, seminars, and demonstrations both Saturday and Sunday. Not to mention the shopping.
I thought I’d take some pictures (sorry they are so dark) while packing my makeup and brushes and talk about what I decided to take with me. Of course I’ll be buying stuff while I’m there but I usually hold off on using it until I get home and can post a haul for you. Watch my Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter for IMATS fun and updates.
I have been holding onto my Benefit sets from my Sephora Birthday Haul just so I could take all these deluxe size samples to IMATS. I broke the boxes apart so I could fit them easily into my travel cosmetic bag.
