Hello all my Gorgeous Artistes out there
Yes we’re BACK! We know it’s been such a long time. We had a little break after our end of year edition, so many things to work on but I promise we have so much in store for you. We’ll be posting all the juicy gossip, interviews and much more over the next couple of weeks, so without further delay, let’s launch the 1st instalment of our Monthly Make-up Artistry Competition for 2012!!!
The theme as you can see is “Seasons of The Year” – Now you may be scratching your head and thinking.. most of us are in Nigeria, it’s either hot sun or rain, but makeup isn’t about boundaries, it’s not restricted to your location. The theme was inspired by the recent shoot appearing in this month’s TW Magazine. Our 2011 end of year reigning champion (Omegie Nsofor) along with our Creative Director worked together to create some avante garde beauty pages which has never been done before at TW.
What we’re looking for from this theme is for you to truly extend yourself. If you could be any where in the world, how would you express it through makeup. It could be a beautiful sunny day, horrible monsoon rain, sweltering heatwave dark cloudy skies, wind, snow, autumn leaves falling from a tree.. the choice is yours. Research and create the mood for a season. (Omegie took her inspiration from how the weather would feel in a Tropical Environment).
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.
This year we’re doing things a little different. While we had alot of fun with the online voting from now on, the decision will be made by our panel of experts. We will give critique on each submission and announce our chosen winner based upon the criteria following:
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:
In the event of a tie breaker then our Creative Director Lola Maja-Okojevoh will make the final decision.
To celebrate the launch of our Make-up Academy the winner will receive one of our exclusive Academy Essentials Lipstick Palettes along with a choice of any set of our new range of Lashes from the “Red Cherry” brand. We’re delighted to be the official distributors for Red Cherry within Nigeria and we’re sure you’ll love them as much as we do!
Good Luck to all our Goddesses!!
