Have you ever heard of Comic-Con? It’s that super geek-fest that takes place in San Diego every year, where you can see beloved characters like Batman and Spock come to life (and yes, it’s my dream to go there one day). Anyway, the amazing makeup artists that bring those characters to life have their own convention and it’s called IMATS: International Makeup Artist Trade Show.

Each year IMATS comes to Sydney and brings with it talented makeup artists from Australia and all around the world. It isn’t just for the industry pros though – anyone with an interest in makeup is welcome to attend (one day ticket – $40, two day tickets – $75). IMATS 2011 is right around the corner, so if you happen to be in Sydney at the time – lucky you!

IMATS carries some amazing makeup lines that sadly aren’t available in normal Australian shops. Just to name a few…

They also carry well known lines like MAC, Inglot and Napoleon Perdis. As if you needed more incentive, they have classes, lectures, demonstrations and free sample giveaways going on all weekend and they offer a discount on makeup!
