The jane iredale® National Student Makeup Competition promises to be a highlight of 2016. The calibre of entries we received last year was outstanding, and we think this year's creativity will be the best yet! Watch last years finalists in action in our video below.

This year’s theme: Make-up from around the world

Students are creating their own interpretation of different cultures from around the world. From Geisha to Tribal, Moroccan to Arabian, we are looking for inspired looks.

The exciting live final  takes place at our prestigious London head office and the winner will receive a fantastic prize to kick start their career, including a makeup kit worth £1,000*, 4 days intensive training, 1 day’s work experience, social media exposure and trade media publicity.

The winning college will receive £1,000* of jane iredale® mineral cosmetic products at RRP.

Thank you to everyone who entered the competition this year! We had an unprecedented level of interest this year, with registrations from over 100 colleges and stiff competition from over 200 students. A list of the finalists is below. If your students entered and were not successful on this occasion please do continue to encourage your budding makeup artists to enter next year!
