In addition to Perdis’ address, the Napoleon Perdis Creative and Makeup Academy teams will lead make-up demonstrations throughout the weekend. Rae Morris, the make-up director of Australia’s Fashion Week, is a four-time winner of Australia’s Makeup Artist of the Year award and the author of Makeup: The Ultimate Guide. Lane, who won an Oscar for The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, worked on the Lord of the Rings films and is currently heading the make-up department on Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit.

LimeLily Cosmetics, the brainchild of artist Nicola Richards, will exhibit for the first time at IMATS, where they will showcase their environmentally friendly, paraben-free line. Thousands of visitors, both trade and consumer, are expected through the doors for the event.

The event is the perfect opp for up-and-coming and professional make-up artists to learn about the latest products on the market, stock their kits and meet other creative enthusiasts. Its also an opportunity to learn new make-up applications and techniques.

Each year IMATS hosts a 'makeup museum', an exhibition of well-known make-up sculptures and designs from film and television. IMATS also runs two live student make-up competitions: This year, students will race against the clock to create tribal and mythological make-up looks for the chance to win fab prizes.
