The Warpaint competition at this year’s Professional Beauty North not only showcased some amazing talent, the winners of each of category will now compete at The Clothes Show Live on Sunday December 8th at Birmingham’s NEC for the title of Emerging Make-up Artist 2013.
As each of our four winners from Fashion, Editorial, SFX and Real Beauty will be demonstrating some very different influences, the theme that we have chosen so as not to preference one discipline over another is the 1950s.
A decade that saw so much: a breath of fresh air after the austerity of the War years, the 1950s brought us Dior’s New Look and Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday. It saw the rise of the Sci-Fi phenomenon with The Forbidden Planet as well master of suspense, Bela Lugosi, in Dracula. Classic Vogue and Harper’s covers featuring the images of Cecil Beaton and Norman Parkinson have become works of art in themselves. Our Queen was crowned, DNA discovered and Disneyland opened its doors for the first time, so we are hoping that our finalists will have plenty to inspire them.
Warpaint’s own competition returns in February next year at Professional Beauty’s flagship show in February. Details of how to enter and the category themes will follow in the next few months, but in the meantime here are our brilliant contestants from Warpaint North 13.
