My first IMATS

by 7.2.12

Hello Sweets,

For the last two weeks I've been traveling to Paris, Amsterdam, Milano and London to promote our latest record 'Requiem for the Indifferent'. A nice bonus for me was that I would be in London at the right time to attend IMATS. Last year I couldn't make it because I was away with EPICA.

The lovely Marie joined me to brave the cold and breathe in a new make up experience at IMATS. I was very excited to finally go and very happy that she decided to come with.

Now you will see some pictures of this lovely day we had at the Alexandra Place in Wood Green.

Marie's and my new treasures.
There we go!
I love the location.
A Mac artist at work.
Leonardo Dicaprio growing older.
Beth Ditto and me reunited since Pinkpop. She is so lovely!
a Lovely lady.
Patience is a virtue. At the end you'll have a real piece of art.
Scary guy did his own make up.
New inspiration for next year's Day of the Dead.

For the next couple of posts, I will include some of my purchases. Illamasqua had the best offer of whole IMATS. The foundations were 7,50 pounds. The eyeshadows/nailpolish/pigments/lipsticks/powder and cream blusher were 5 pounds each and the eye pencils 2 pounds! Isn't that a bargain?

I surely think so!

Swatchful kisses,
