HELP SEND ME TO IMATS LA 2009!IMATS LA 2009 is just around the corner and I’d love to be able to go! However, the economy is hitting everyone hard, myself included, and I am desperately trying to come up with airfare money to get myself out to LA. If you can find it in your hearts and can afford to, please feel free to donate whatever amount you can! Roundtrip airfare from Nashville to Los Angeles is only $250. I figure if I can get 25 people to donate $10, or even 50 people to donate $5, I’d be set! See, it’s really not that much if you think about it in the end! :) Anything would be greatly appreciated! Plus, imagine the footage that all of us makeup gurus could get! Talk about one massive meeting of the gurus!! Haha!
For those of you who are not familiar with IMATS, it is the “International Makeup Artists Trade Show”. It is held every year in Los Angeles and in 3 other major cities around the globe. Here’s a tid bit of info from the IMATS website about the show:
About the Show
Known simply as “The Show” to the make-up world, the International Make-Up Artist Trade Show (IMATS) is the only show of its kind in the world. Thousands of make-up artists, vendors, manufacturers and enthusiasts convene for the make-up world’s biggest gathering to discuss, display, discover and collect the best the industry has to offer. If you’ve ever wanted to learn the techniques or experiment with the products, or if you just have an interest in the art of make-up, then L.A. is where you need to be. The show is open to the public. No make-up artist credentials are required to get you in the door.
Tickets are available online for advanced purchase. You’ll want to get them ahead of time because I’ve heard the lines get extremely long when waiting to purchase them the day of, and the price gets expensive too.
