IMATS Archives | EI, School of Professional Makeup

We will be attending the IMATS LA this weekend, Jan 16-18, along with many others in the make-up industry. This event is geared towards anyone who loves makeup and not just professional make-up artists or special effects makeup artists.

IMATS
The IMATS LA is a great place to connect with working make-up artists and those who are makeup minded. Known as a hub for film and TV productions, IMATS established the world’s first-ever make-up artist show in Los Angeles in 1997 and has been growing ever since. It is an excellent place to learn from and network with thousands of make-up artists working in the film, TV, and fashion industries. With tons of vendors to visit, you can easily stock up your makeup kit or make-up bag or discover something new.
Oscar-winning artist Ve Neill is scheduled to be the preliminary keynote speaker for IMATS LA 2015.
Ve Neill has won three Oscars, two Emmys, four Saturn Awards, a BAFTA and many more awards and nominations over the course of her career. Some of her celebrity clients include: Johnny Depp, Jack Nicholson, Keira Knightley, Julia Roberts, Danny DeVito and more. Neill has also worked her make-up artistry on film such as: Star Trek (The Motion Picture), Galaxy Quest, The Lost Boys, Batman Returns, Edward Scissorhands, The Pirates of the Caribbean Series, Sweeney Todd, The Amazing Spider-Man films and The Hunger Games Series. Despite her hectic schedule, she still finds time to act as a judge on Syfy’s make-up effects show Face Off.
Receive an exclusive signing by Ve Neill of Issues 10, 66 and 97 of the magazine on Sunday, Jan. 18 at the Make-Up Artist magazine booth (#2212).
Master make-up artist Francesca Tolot has been added as a keynote speaker and will also sign copies of her book One Woman 100 Faces. Francesca has worked on fashion and beauty editorials, commercials, Grammy-winning artists and Oscar-winning actresses. Her list of clients include: Madonna, Elizabeth Taylor, Marion Cotillard and Mila Kunis, to name a few.
