So I told you guys that I was headed to Sydney for the weekend, what I didn't mention was that I was heading down to the International Makeup Artists Trade Show! It was so much fun.
I hadn't been before and was expecting crazy, people brawling over the last eyeshadow cat fighting, not able to move and all those fun things. So wrong. It was so not busy. Which is odd. I got there half an hour before the doors opened because I was told that the queues would be nuts. Nope, no line at all. I moseyed on up to the ticket counter and was done in about 30 seconds. Because I was there when it opened, I got first look at the Makeup Forever counter, which I was surprised to see because they don't actually sell their products in Australia.
Then there was the student makeup that was inspired by Alice in Wonderland.
One thing I do need to mention though is my surprise that there is no MAC stall. The show was sponsored by MAC Pro, but they didn't have any presence at the show beyond a couple of demos. I have to admit that I was pretty disappointed by that.
I have decided to dedicate an entire post to the work of Nicole Thompson, a senior MAC artist. She transformed two ladies into works of art right before my eyes. Literally. That will be up tomorrow, you should really check it out - it will blow your mind.
I will also be posting a haul pic of what I got from the show and also what I picked up out and about in Sydney.
All right, I know that was a really long post, but I really wanted to share with you guys.

That's it for now.
Be awesome to each other.
