The finalists for in this year’s four “make up” categories have been named.

JD Academy has 4 finalists:  3 Alumni + 1 Current Student.

Without being dramatic, The Skin Games are to the esthetics world what the Emmys are to television.  It’s a huge event with contestants from all over the world.  We’re incredibly proud and excited to announce that we have 4 JD Academy alumni & students who have been chosen as finalists to compete in Las Vegas this June.

So without further ado, here’s a huge, heartfelt congratulations to our 4 finalists:
