International Makeup Artist Trade Show Sydney
This year IMATS played host to huge international artists and local makeup legends while featuring new and incredible products from some of the worlds best cosmetics brands. Our course convener went down to suss out all the action and help out one of our favourite brands, IMATS major sponsor, Kryolan.
IMATS stands for the International Makeup Artist Trade Show and is held each year in major cities around the world. The Sydney event is a must see exhibit for Australian makeup artist and has been visiting our shore since 2009.
The boys from Odd studios Damian Martin and Adam Johansen (best known for their work on Mad Max: Fury Road, Star Wars: Episode III—Revenge of the Sith, Farscape, The Wolverine, The Matrix Reloaded, Babe: Pig in the City, Where the Wild Things Are, Superman Returns) were incredibly inspiring as key note speakers.
In summary Michael explains: “In a nut shell IMATS was awesome. There were almost too many highlights to mention but it was exciting to be apart of all the buzz while catching up with industry leaders like Rae Morris, Roshar and Martin Bray. I loved helping Kryolan and had a blast demonstrating their new Nebular air brush colours! It is amazing to see so many incredible artists in one venue. I can’t wait for next year!
