IMATS Vancouver – Wrap Up
So I shared with you my Eve Pearl faves (Flawless Face Palette, and Kisses of Peal Lipgloss), and let’s not forget the SILK GreenLine Makeup Brush Set. What else happened on my introduction to the wonderful world of professional makeup artists and IMATS?
We started with Studio FX to see special guest Todd Masters (Multi-winning FX Lab) and 6 of his artists (True Blood), Toby Lindala (Once Upon a Time), guest of honor Dana Nye of Ben Nye Cosmetics. Cool fact about Dana is his dad was one of the main makeup masters behind the epic “Gone With the Wind”.
The evening was full of drag queens, makeup tips, and tables that came alive with cotton candy to champagne.Vancouver Film School’s Laura Wright and me (Shelley Mantei) [Top Left]. Dana Nye, CEO Ben Nye and Pat, VP, Sales & Marking Ben Nye [second row - right].

And then I wrapped with IMATS itself with my VFS host, Laura Wright and Emmy Award winning makeup artist Kevin James Bennett.
