New York, New York. If you can make it there, you can make it anywhere. That’s what the song says, anyway.
And three recent graduates from Canada’s best Makeup Schooldefinitely have made it there, picking up prestigious trophies in the Beauty/Fantasy and Character Prosthetics competitions at the New York IMATS (International Make-Up Artist Trade Show).
Just being selected to be one of the eight finalists in each competition from the thousands of makeup students that applied is an astonishing achievement. Maple Ridge’s Taylor Dunn thought she’d have to settle for that accomplishment. Instead, she walked away with First Place and a cheque for $1,000 in the Beauty/Fantasy competition.
