Getting ready for IMATS and the ABBW

International Make-up Artist Trade Show (IMATS) and the Australian Beauty Blogger Weekend (The ABBW) are coming to Sydney this weekend.  Two major beauty events combined means enormous pressure on fragile shoulders of beauty bloggers. While looking your very best, you should also see and cover as much as possible. When attending events of such magnitude planning in advance whatever you can is the key to getting the most of out it.

In terms of outfits, so far I have two options (pictured) for Saturday. Retro boho for the day and glamour for the night. For Sunday, I have not decided yet… Hopefully, these outfits will be complimented by a glowing face. As a brand new mum I look these days more like a panda rather than human being. So in preparation for the ABBW, I am trying to brighten up my pale complexion by getting extra-cherishment for my skin.

As for the IMATS exhibition, I created a personalised Beauty Itinerary that includes MAC, Gorgeous Cosmetics, Naked Cosmetics, Hakuhodo and a few other brands. Also I will be attending Get Inspired, Stay Inspired by Napoleon Perdis and one other surprise presentation. In case you are interested to join us, full list of exhibitors and presenters can be found here.

Finally, the shopping list. I will be looking for more magical makeup products to go into my beauty box. What are they? I don’t know yet but we (and you, dear reader too) will find out soon! Stay tuned for more IMATS and ABBW updates starting this Sunday.

You can also follow me on twitter for real time updates, if you want to :)

    Pearls are the best! They are so classy yet stylish and chic! It does not matter how old are you, pearls will always be suitable! The whole outfits seems to be so romantic! and the nude nailpolisher is super hype;))
