Hello all my Gorgeous Artistes out there
It’s finally here!! The seventh and final instalment of our Monthly Make-up Artistry Competition for 2011!!!
The theme as you can see is “Ice Queen – Winter Wonderland” – Now you may be scratching your head and thinking.. you’re all based in Nigeria, but makeup isn’t about boundaries, it’s not restricted to your location. Even if you’re sweltering in the heat, we want you to convince us that you’re in a magical “cold” fairytale!!
Feel free to use accessories and props and of course.. lashes!! 😀
All photos must be raw unedited images and as always you can perform the makeup either on yourself or on a model.
Entries must be submitted by 27th December (we’re giving you a few days extra because of xmas). Results will be announced on Friday 30th December 2012 (what a way to end the year!!).
This month we’re doing things a little different. As this is our GRAND FINALE i’m sure you won’t mind.
There are 6 entrants in our finals, each of the winners of our monthly competition are now going head to head against each other to rise to the top and be crowned as the Sacred Creative Artist of the Year!
There won’t be any public voting this month (sorry guys). The entries will be judged by a panel of experts who will be marking the work based on
1. Creative Concept
2. Quality of Makeup Technique
Our panel of experts will grade each of the entries from 1st down to 5th place. Who ever scores the highest number of Judges votes will win!
We are immensley honoured to have a fantastic panel of independant Judges who are all highly respected in the beauty industry and who have supported our competition throughout. We’re pleased to be able to offer our entrants the chance to be critiqued by the very best of hands and minds:
Banke Meshida Lawal (BM Pro)
Eni Lise Balogun (Lise Beauty)
Funke Tonye-Preghafi (Gifys Daughter)
Bola Fadina (Blush Cosmetics)
Egor Effik (E4 PR)
In the event of a tie breaker then our Creative Director Lola Maja-Okojevoh will make the final decision.
Ok.. so here comes the big one.. this month the winner gets it all.. literally. There aren’t any second or third prizes.. just the big one.. so I don’t want to see any dulling.. Time to pull out all the stops and dig deeper than you ever have before, push your creativity to the limits because the winner of our GRAND FINALE walks away with:
