It’s almost here! The biggest weekend of the year in the world of Makeup Artists- IMATS!
Anyone in the makeup world knows this is not an event to be missed. The town is buzzing with makeup artists prepping for the annual Battle of the Brushes Student Competition and JCI’s huge team of talented artists will be hitting the competition stage on Saturday, May 30th and Sunday, May 31st.
First up to battle it out in the Character Prosthetics category on May 30th will be JCI’s Angelina Alvaro, Christina Thunder, Susana Icelo, Amy Kikkert, and Jaclyn Hachey. We are so proud of you girls for what you have brought so far- we can’t wait to cheer you on to the finish line!
The fun won’t end there, so be sure to join us on May 31st as we cheer on the talented Michael Fels, Kiera Bowman, and Sarah Rollins as they duke it out in the Beauty/Fantasy Category.
Don’t forget to stop by and say hi to the JCI team at booth #509 in front of the main stage. We have an exciting weekend of makeup planned at the booth with guest artists and former IMATS Battle of the Brushes winners JCI grads Elizabeth McLeod and Bree-Anna Lehto. JCI’s Lanny Brown will also be joining us to do makeup on Sunday.
Come and check out the event for great speakers, great deals on makeup (you don’t want to miss the special industry rates and superb bargains- this is one of the highlights of the show), and the great team of makeup artists at booth #509. This is bound to be a great weekend all around! See you there!
