IMATS (International Make-Up Artist Trade Show) London 2010: Body Painting


Just back from my adventures so not got many posts (like reviews) scheduled for today. Instead please enjoy these images from IMATS (International Make-Up Artist Trade Show) London 2010 taken at the weekend.

Since its picture heavy, there will be a few posts throughout the day with some images and finally, a post with my hauls from the event and a commentary/review of IMATS later on.

BTW Mr Candy took care of photography on this occasion. I think the boy did quite good! Me? I was too busy shopping!

This is Alexandra Palace….it was frigging freezing the whole time I was in London:

Getting there was not a barrel of laughs being a Northener…are you supposed to fill a bus until your face is pressed against the glass? Anyway, view was gorgeous:

    Now we are talking about. First post I see which does not moan about ‘boo, it was not in central london, what a pain to commute’. I can’t believe how many people from london complained it was not in central london. Gee, they live in London!! Fab pictures of the place and the surroundings. Amazing view. The alexandra palace was not heated inside? If anything, I thought it would have been nice and toasty inside. And I mot having the excuse of ‘it’s too warm, then the body paint will melt’ cos if there are professional makeup artists after all. I would not call a freezing place, a palace would do? 😛 Lol, for the commentary on the zebra. Loving the last picture with the rhinestone eyebrow. Have you got more pictures of that model in particular. Fab Fab Fab post, the commentaries really gave me an impression of how it felt like for a northerner to travel there. Congrats to Mr C for the photos. can’t wait for the next posts. This is really exciting.
