We had such a great time being at the 2016 International Make-up Artist Trade Show! It was great seeing all of our fans at our booth. We snapped a few photos during the show days on January 15th – 17th, 2016. Here are a few highlights from the show!
All of the guests were checked into the show at the IMATS registration counter were and given a wristband so they can enter and leave when they wanted. All the staff at the IMATS LA show were extremely helpful and friendly! They were able to help all the IMATS guests with Pro Card registration, check-in, and much more.
If you’re familiar with mall directories, this board should look quite familiar to you. You can find all the information regarding booths, shows, and the days the presenters were going to be at IMATS. Bdellium Tools was located near the front, at booth #606. Holler to our fans who saw us and walked straight up to our booth to purchase new brushes and to take photos with us!
We found ourselves in the IMATS information booklet! We were featuring our new BDHD brushes and had many demos at the booth for everyone to try out! Many of you guys really enjoyed how soft and sturdy the bristles are!
The whole Bdellium Tools was here! Literally minutes after opening, the whole booth was swarmed! We were so excited to see our fans visiting and buying new brushes from our booth. Everything at the booth at a major discount. We offer the same discount online to those who apply to our Pro Program (Makeup Artists, Industry Professionals, and Makeup Students qualify).
You can spot our bags from hundreds of feet away! Our signature yellow bag helps you find your friends and family (if you may become lost amongst the crowd). It’s also reusable if you’d like to carry other things in it, too! Made from recycled plastics, the Bdellium Tools bag was quite a hit at the show.
Featured Bdellium Tools artist Mckenzie Gregg completed this beautiful majestic creature at our booth using all Bdellium Tools Special FX brushes! Thanks for coming McKenzie! It took her about 2.5 hours to complete this masterpiece and we must say, it’s quite scary!
Our second featured Bdellium Tools artist, Ben Ploughman, created this Snow White Evil Queen with our SFX line during the second day of IMATS at our booth. Incredibly scary and reminiscent of the real queen in Snow White!
We couldn’t get enough of Keaghlan Ashley’s rendition of Lady Lazarus! It was scary-beautiful. What can we say, beauty is in the eye of the brush-holder?
Bdellium Tools creator and founder, Edward Kim, standing next to Cyclops. We’re so proud of our friend Thomas Surprenant for creating this realistic beast from scratch. If you guys didn’t already know, Thomas is one of Hollywood’s most renown cinematic makeup artists of this era! Our Special FX line was named after him.
Cinematic zombie created by Nora Hewitt for Kryolan, using Bdellium Tools SFX brushes. Looks like something from The Walking Dead stepped out into real life.
Cinematic makeup artist Argenis Pinal using a few of our SFX brushes to create this Zombie Superman/Batman character. Great job buddy!
Thanks for those who joined in on our Periscope during the IMATS 2016 show! We were overwhelmed by the hearts and comments from you guys. Shout out to those who recognized Edward Kim and mentioned him in the chatroom! Thanks so much for your love and support – we couldn’t have done it without you guys.
Some of us took advantage of the major discounts at the booth. We we had a surprise gift for those who purchased with us. Thanks to our super fans for doing a huge haul at our booth.
