Our Top Valentine’s Beauty Influencers

At Jean Madeline Aveda Institute, we love February! Who can resist hearts, cards, and candy? This year we decided to kick things up a notch with a Valentine's Beauty Influencers Contest! We are so grateful to have received so many amazing entries, check out how talented our students are!

Valentine's Beauty Influencers

Makeup artistry isn't something you can learn overnight, it takes a lot of dedication. At Jean Madeline Aveda Institute, we emphasize a foundation in makeup application in both our cosmetology and esthetics programs. Our instructors strive to keep our students updated on the latest industry trends and practices so our graduates can feel confident in their skills when pursuing a future career.

We love giving our students the opportunity to showcase their new skills, and show us their creative side! Beauty contests like this inspire some fun, competitive spirit, but also let our students put those skills to real use. Our top three winners for our Valentine's Beauty Influencer Contest are @styled.by.kierstyn, @moonstonebabe_, and @cakedby_quinn! Congrats, ladies!

1st Place | Kierstyn | @styled.by.kierstyn

Kierstyn absolutely blew us away with this gorgeous, unique take on a Valentine's look. We love that she took the initiative to step out of the box and show something outside of a traditional Valentine's style by using a milk bath. Kierstyn collaborated with a friend and a professional photographer to achieve this look. Help us congratulate her on first place!

2nd Place | Melissa | @moonstonebabe_

Our second place contestant, Melissa, pulled inspiration from the darker side of Valentine's Day! We couldn't ignore the artistry on this special effects makeup, complemented by a gorgeous, yet haunting eye look! Be careful with Cupid, sometimes his aim is a little off!

3rd Place | Quinn | @cakedby_quinn

Quinn warmed our hearts with this beautiful, pink look! Seriously, from the cut-crease to the pink accents, this has Valentine's written all over it! Big thank you to Quinn for this look, our top three contestants are all so talented!
