IMATS Los Angeles: Pic Heavy!

You guys.. T^T
I feel so bad that I have not updated this whole month.
I had things to post but just too much going on.
But here is something for everyone to enjoy.
Also YAY I got my weave finally. Photos at the end.

This past weekend I attended the International Make Up Artist Trade Show(IMATS) in Los Angeles
at the Pasadena Convention center. A convention that is open to the public. Many well known make up brands attend selling their products at discounted prices (20%,30%, 40%, Buy one get one, buy this as a set for a discount price etc etc) My friend Mama Cass and Jen kindly offered their home to me so I could spend the night and ride together with them. It literally was like.. we had a battle plan.
I mean for IMATS you have to have a plan because things sell out fast!. Luckly there was three of us so we can invade 3 booths!

Our battle plan?
Wake up
Camp for at least 1 hour.

Cass- Make Up For Ever
Jen- M.A.C
Me- Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics
Discount from brands. If you can remember any please tell me so I can add it. 

30% Off
Make Up For Ever- 20% Off unless you buy a certain amount then you can receive PRO price

Make Up Forever was.. just full of crazyness... so we send in our tallest solider Mama Cass to acquire the make up from them. She did a good job!

These ladies were so nice! With our bottle of Model in a Bottle setting spray they gave
us a free bottle of their eye make up remover! So nice!!!!

ElessaI went over to the Anatasia Beverly Hills booth to grab a Brow Wiz pencil. Ended up getting my eye brows done in the process.

Both very unflattering.
The lady did an AWESOME jobbbb. Their products are great quality and easy to use. And thats coming from a person who really doesn't know how to properly fill in my eyebrows. Well now I do cause of the Brow Wiz.
