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 Week. 

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.

U.K. team collaborates for a different 'Alice in Wonderland' - Tuesday August 04, 2009
U.K. team collaborates for a different 'Alice in Wonderland'
On a cold and cloudy Oxford afternoon, U.K. make-up artist Sarah Terry collaborated with photographer Rebecca Parkes, hairstylist Sean Butt and designer Bibian Blue to create this dark vision of Alice in Wonderland. The Victorian and Edwardian eras inspired Terry to contrast creams and gold hues with vibrant reds and smoky blacks. Appliqués, feathers, nail art and Butts’ elaborate hair design gave the looks texture. This particular Alice (Samantha Wilkinson) and White Rabbit (Blossom Blois) look innocent, but there’s a hint of mischief here, too. Let’s follow them down the path, shall we?
