Hello all my Gorgeous Artistes out there
Welcome to the sixth instalment of our Monthly Make-up Artistry Competition.
As usual, the rules are very simple. Each month we’ll set a different theme. All you have to do is interpret the theme however you like. It’s a creative competition so have fun with it! You can use adornments and costumes (if you’re brave).. heheh.. and of course.. Lashes!
This month is a very special month, today is 11/11/11!!!
(Ooh if you didn’t know we’re having a crazy sale this month to celebrate.. more info on our facebook page!)
I know usually the theme’s are “creative” and out of the norm, but this month, we’re celebrating a variety of things. Firstly both our Artistic Director Lola Maja-Okojevoh has been nominated as Makeup Artist of the Year for another award (FAB Magazine Makeup Artist of the Year). Add that to the others previously announced and that makes 4 this year! Woo Hoo We’re also celebrating with the Makeup Maestro Banke Meshida Lawal on her nominations (FAB Makeup Artist of the Year & Sideview Style Awards) as well as the launch of her new boutiques (Ikeja GRA & Abuja). We’re very proud of our amazing sister in Art, So to tie in with this, the theme this month is:
Thousands of people worldwide have been reserving this date to celebrate their BIG day. Numerically it’s a beautiful date for any couple to walk down the isle together. It’s a well known fact that our Banke Meshida Lawal is one of the undisputed goddesses in the wedding industry. She has worked tirelessly over the last few years to established her brand BM Pro as a force to be reckoned with.
And in her eagerly anticipated expansion, she is launching her new boutique this weekend in Ikeja GRA with the Abuja site soon to follow.
So, this month we’d encourage you to dust off your brushes and create the most beautiful, glamorous, gorgeous glowing brides you can. But as you know by now, this isn’t just your usual run of the mill competitions, this is the Sacred Creative Competition. And you know what that means.. Asian, Oriental, African or Western concepts of beauty, anything goes! Many are now turning away from the conventional concept of beauty and embracing a more individual expression of their own and turning their special days into a truly personalised experience.
The makeup can either be done on yourself or on a model. We don’t mind. But they should be photographs you’ve taken yourself. We don’t allow any professionally photoshopped or airbrushed images.
The competition is open to makeup artists based within the US, UK, Europe and Nigeria!!
