Say hello Nancy Jung, who is a graduate of our Makeup Artistry Program. She won a spot at IMATS Toronto Battle of the Brushes with her amazing prosthetic work, and will be competing on October 1st, 2016. We are thrilled that Nancy will be battling it out and showcasing her skills and will be following along from across the country! Read on to learn more about her experience:

How did you feel when you got into IMATS?

I was at work when I received a missed call, followed by a voicemail from Make Up Magazine. I had to replay the message a few times because it didn’t really sink in at first. I was extremely excited to be given this opportunity!

What inspired you to get into makeup artistry?

Art has always been a huge passion of mine and makeup was another way for me to be creative and express myself. I stumbled upon a YouTube video many years ago which was the reason I started to play around with makeup. The idea of using the face as a canvas was interesting to me, the more I experimented, the more I fell in love with makeup.

What are 3 products you cannot live without?

There are so many makeup products that I love, but if I can only choose 3… it would be:
1. Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper
2. Kat Von D Lock-it concealer
3. NYX Micro Brow pencil

Tell us a bit about your experience at JCI:

My experience at JCI was amazing! It was so great to be surrounded by so many talented, creative, inspiring and supportive individuals. The instructors were so lovely and supportive as well. I’ve learned so much throughout the program, and it definitely helped me grow as a makeup artist.
