IMATS New York 2013

Had a ball at the IMATS this year in New York. So many great vendors! My favorite part of the show was watching the 'Battle of the Brushes". BOB is the student competition, this years theme was the Elements. It's amazing to see how makeup can transform someone. Everyone was extremely talented. Posted a few videos on Vine that I put up on the post. Follow me on Vine at Caitlin Ripp! I wish I had taken more photos at the show, but it was so overwhelming that I kind of forgot! P.S. if you're interested into going to the IMATS in the future I have some advice. 1.) Get there early 2.) Bring a small roller suitcase or bag for product 3.) Beware that there will be a million teeny boppers at the show 4.) Bring your own snacks food was expensive and tasted bad



Can you guess what elements these two were? Wind on the left and Water on the right
The girl below was Earth

This gem is Keyshia Ka'oir. She has a fabulous lipstick line that one of my favorite girl rappers 'Trina' wears. I bought a few of her lipsticks and I am in love with them! Great pigment and long wearing power!

Hey gil's!
So I have been M.I.A. for awhile now, my bad. Sorry to those of you who actually read my blog. #HiMom I just have been crazy busy at work. Then two weekends ago my beautiful best friend Whitney got married, and this past weekend I was in New York for IMATS (international makeup artist trade show). Obviously I will be doing posts on the last two weeks, but for now just a quick update.
