As you may have seen over the weekend, JCI had 3 grads/students competing at IMATS LA Battle of the Brushes! Each talented woman was accepted into the Beauty/Fantasy category, and completed their masterpieces on Sunday. The theme was International Beauty, and each Makeup Artist came up with a breathtaking interpretation around that subject.
Tiera Murray created this beautiful look. The metallic silver, gemstones and bright red to contrast really stood out on stage. A 2 time IMATS competitor, Tiera did an amazing job in LA – we’re so proud of her work at the event and always excited to see what she comes up with next!
Jessica Lust has competed 3 times at IMATS and placed each and every time! We couldn’t be more thrilled to announce that she once again came in 3rd in LA – this stunning makeup creation certainly deserved it. Go Jessica! We look forward to seeing more of her work in the future.
It might be hard to believe seeing her work at IMATS. but Kathleen Fowlstone is just finishing up our Makeup Artistry program. She has a background in bodypainting, which you can definitely tell when you look at all the detail in her work. This is just the beginning for Kat and we couldn’t be happier for her to have had this experience already.
