PART THREE OF IMATS BATTLE OF THE BRUSHES FINALISTS: KATHLEEN FOWLSTONE
Kathleen Fowlstone graduated the John Casablancas Institute Makeup Program early March of this year and recently came back to teach the Makeup Artistry Program. Kat is one of three JCI finalists who will be competing at the 2017 Vancouver IMATS this upcoming weekend.
As a self-taught makeup artist and body painter, Kat was apart of the 2014 IMATS and knew in that moment that she was on the right path. From being featured in Skin Markz Magazine for her amazing work to founding Little Monsters Studio, Kat has certainly left her mark in the makeup industry.
We are beyond excited to see Kat compete at the 2017 IMATS Battle of the Brushes on October 15 in the Beauty/Fantasy category. Catch JCI Makeup graduate and educator live at IMATS at 3:15 PM this Sunday!
