IMATS NY: Beauty Strokes, Booth #921
The International Makeup Trade Show is the makeup world’s biggest gathering. Thousands of makeup artists, vendors 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, a student competition. IMATS continues to educate and connect make-up artists from around the world. The show is held six times annually—in Los Angeles; New York. London; Vancouver, B.C.; Sydney; and Toronto.
This year’s IMATS NY is shaping up to be another wonderful event featuring:
- Keynote speech by Millennium FX co-founder and media make-up artist Neill Gorton. In a career spanning more than two decades, Gorton, with his company Millennium FX, has designed make-up effects, prosthetics and animatronic creations for hundreds of films, TV shows and commercials, including Saving Private Ryan, Gladiator, Inkheart, The Wolfman, Doctor Who, Little Britain and Torchwood. In this time he’s won six Royal Television Society awards, three Welsh BAFTAs and a BAFTA Craft Award, along with several other nominations.
- TV make-up artist Riccie Johnson will discuss her 65-years-and-going-strong career at IMATS New York. Johnson has worked as a make-up artist for 60 Minutes and CBS News since 1968; she started her career in 1950 at NBC and trained under Dick Smith.
- This year marks the 40th anniversary of Saturday Night Live and the 20th anniversary of make-up department head Louie Zakarian’s tenure there. IMATS is thrilled to honor these milestones with a special celebration featuring Zakarian, current and former SNL artists and cast members.
