IMATS 2010

Hey guys!

Today I went to Imats at Ally pally in London. I took Mr Katielovesmakeup and the plan was to see if the following products are available and to catch the Alex Byrne and Eve Pearl masterclasses. I really wanted the beauty so clean disinfectant spray and some make up international magazines but the main thing I wanted to see was the Mac Zuca make up trolley. I have been coveting this for months!! I was looking at getting it shipped in from the US as they were sold out in the Soho store So I was over the moon that they had one! Welcome home my new favourite thing!! Whilst I was at Mac I picked up rose eyeshadow and copper pigment which are lovely. I wandered around and picked up a few other bits (the mags, spray and some crown brushes, aofm book and wedding book) I then went to check out Eve Pearls stand and too my surprise Eve asked if I wanted a makeover . I jumped at the chance and I was with her for 1/2 hr but I missed Alex Byrne :-(. I had the best ever lesson! She is lovely and gave me some amazing pointers that I will use on my clients. I then went to her master class which was great and she made the model look amazing! I also had the pleasure of bumping into Sam and Nic Chapman. They are gorgeous! Top day and can't wait for next year!
Big hugs

Some pictures that inspired my 31 looks....

Hot or not? Jan '10


IMATS! I just cannot wait to go. I am taking Mr Katielovemakeup with me and I am planning to attend the masterclasses by Koren and Eve Pearl. I just cannot wait! The discount is exciting too!

Collection 2000 lasting perfection foundation. This is a new foundation that promises up to 16 hour wear. It's oil free , which is great for my oily skin and spf 20 which protects my skin. The colour I am using is the lightest which is vanilla. I have used it for the past 4 days and I LOVE IT! I apply it with my SS187 brush. A little gos a long way with the so one or two small pumps would suffice. It gives a nice dewy look to the skin. I still need to use concealer on my dark eye bags but for £3.50 you cannot do any thing but rave about it! I got mine from Tesco's.


Long January. I don't know about you but I always find January the most stressful time of the year. The long month between pay packets hurts, the weather is crap but I am making mine fly by with my 31 looks challenge!

Crap eye make up remover. I use a lot of waterproof mascara and stay put eyeliner which most eye make up removers don't budge. I use Macs easy off eye and lip remover but it's soooo expensive. Any cheap alternatives peeps???
