One of the most creative events every year, here at Warpaint Towers we count down the days until the annual NYX Professional Makeup FACE Awards. Since its inception in 2011, the Freedom and Artistry for Creative Expression competition has recognised the talented individuals of the beauty vlogging community and celebrates the community of online makeup artists who collectively run more than 50,000 YouTube channels and get over 700 million hits each month. The UK and Ireland arm of the competition is in its fourth year and has been a springboard for talents such as Emily Clayton, Anna Lingis, Maria Malone-Guerbaa, Heather Moorhouse and Zoe Ellen Butterworth.
With £10,000 spending money and a place in the global grand final in Las Vegas where the eventually winner receives $50k, alongside being the face of the NYX Professional Makeup Halloween animation and enrolment on to a pro make-up course in London worth £1,500 up for grabs, it’s little wonder that competition is fierce.
Prepare to be amazed and take a look at this year’s Top 10 with their Punk Extravaganza presentations. The five finalists are announced on Monday 4th June and the grand final is on 27th June. Good luck to all contestants.
