We all know that makeup for photography is different than say stage makeup and makeup for TV/Movies.

  • characteristics of warm & cool tones
  • and more

Skin Care ( READ ONLY)
  • Histology
  • functions
  • layers of skin
  • types of skin treatments,
  • intro to camouflage
  • acne & more

You will leave this workshop with a perfect, technical knowledge of makeup procedure based on the bones in the face. You will be ready to begin making money right away with brides as well learn to work with photographers.

Photographers benefit by understanding makeup which will aid them when looking for makeup artist or if in a pinch, have the ability to do it yourself.

IMATS Toronto

For those of you who haven't heard of the International Makeup Artist Trade Show (IMATS), and honestly I don't know who reading this DOESN'T know what IMATS is but whatever, I'll give you a little history on it, courtesy of their website

"Make-Up Artist magazine produces the International Make-Up Artist Trade Show (or IMATS), the only show serving make-up artists worldwide. Five times a year, in four countries, thousands of make-up artists, vendors, manufacturers and enthusiasts join the make-up word’s biggest gathering. At IMATS, participants display, discover, discuss and collect the best the industry has to offer. IMATS also offers excellent presentations, classes and demonstrations from industry leaders—and it’s the best place to network with colleagues.

During the mid-‘90s, there were no trade shows specifically for make-up artists. Because artists and cosmetics companies had expressed interest in such a show, Make-Up Artist publisher Michael Key held the first IMATS in August 1997. It offered a diverse mix of presentations, products, demonstrations and education by some of the biggest names in the business. Like Make-Up Artist magazine, IMATS continues to further Key’s vision to educate and reach make-up artists around the world.

The show is held five times annually—in London in January; Vancouver, B.C. in April; Los Angeles in June, Sydney in September and Toronto in November."

It's about that time again, and I just can't get enough. It's IMATS!! The International Makeup Artist Trade Show and Makeup Artist Magazine are being held in Toronto next month!!
