This year’s show features several new exhibitors—including Norcostco, Anastasia Beverly Hills, Inglot, BodyFX and Napoleon Perdis—as well as IMATS Los Angeles regulars including Make Up For Ever, M.A.C., Nyx and Züca.
The Make-up Museum will showcase make-up effects, sculptures, animatronics and more from some of the world’s best-known films. The student competition, in which make-up students race to create winning looks, has a tribal beauty theme for the beauty category; the character category is themed mythological creatures.
Make-Up Artist magazine has been producing IMATS since 1997, and the show has grown significantly over the years: Make-Up Artist also produces IMATS in London; New York; Vancouver, B.C.; Sydney and Toronto.
