Maybelline, CVS Offer Chance to Win Fashion-Week Gig
Posted: Thursday September 02, 2010
Can you recreate a runway look with drugstore cosmetics? Then you may
want to enter the Be a Sensational Makeup Artist contest, sponsored by
Maybelline New York and CVS/pharmacy. The top prize is an assistant
make-up artist position at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week during the fall
2011 shows in New York City.
To enter, participants must submit
videos of themselves creating a make-up look on themselves, a friend or
a family member with Maybelline New York cosmetics. The competition is
open through Oct. 15.
A panel of beauty experts—including
Maybelline New York make-up artists and executives—will select five
finalists, although the public will determine the grand-prize winner
through online voting. The winner's make-up look will be showcased in
the Feb. 2011 issue of a top beauty/fashion magazine. The winner will
also receive a trip for two to New York City, a professional make-up
artist kit full of Maybelline products, a gift bag and the chance to
assist a Maybelline New York Artist backstage at Mercedes-Benz Fashion
Online voting will take place from Oct. 20-Nov. 7. Voters
will be automatically entered to win prizes, including an all-expense
paid trip for two to New York City, two tickets to a show at Fashion
Week in New York, a beauty makeover and gift bags.
London-based make-up artist Angela Holthuis and photographer Izabela Habur set a challenge for themselves: Habur
asked Holthuis, a fashion pro, to create “a small story with bold looks
within a small time frame, to test out how far we [could] push
ourselves creatively,” Holthuis said.
Make-Up Artist magazine is now accepting student competition
applications for the 2009 Los Angeles International Make-Up Artist
Trade Show. The themes for this year are Gothic and X-Men Mutants. The competition is open to students of a recognized make-up school and
to those who graduated 12 months prior to the competition. Make-Up Artist will only accept competition entries postmarked by May 22, 2009.
If you like Prescriptives products, you’d better stock up while you
can: On Sept. 17, Estée Lauder Companies announced it will stop
production and global wholesale distribution of the brand by Jan. 31,
2010. The brand will still be sold online at www.prescriptives.com
while inventory lasts.
