What better place to connect with working make-up artists than the historical hub for film and TV productions? IMATS established the world’s first-ever make-up artist show in Los Angeles in 1997. Here you can learn from and network with thousands of make-up artists working in film, TV, fashion and red carpet. Stock your kit or make-up bag by visiting any of the hundreds of exhibitors.
The International Make-Up Artist Trade Show, or IMATS, is the world’s largest celebration of make-up artistry. Thousands of make-up artists, exhibitors and enthusiasts discuss, display and collect the best the industry has to offer. Make-up pros from fashion and film (including Oscar, BAFTA and Saturn award winners) provide education and demonstrations at IMATS, and new products often debut there. IMATS also features a Make-up Museum and the Battle of the Brushes student make-up competitions, where international make-up students race to create winning looks.
