Awaited with anticipation every summer, the FACE Awards is one of the biggest platforms for budding creatives in the UK and Ireland. Now in their fifth year, the Freedom and Artistry for Creative Expression Awards – to give them their full title – celebrate the individual talents of the beauty vlogging community. They’ve been the springboard for such UK talents as Emily Clayton, Anna Lingis, Maria Malone-Guerbaa and Ellis Atlantis.
Anyone and everyone with a love of makeup and artistry is invited to enter. Sponsored by Superdrug, the competition began on 23rd May and ends on 20th September when the winner will be crowned the 2019 Artist of the Year. In between, via two challenges and the public vote, the Top 20 will be whittled down to the final five, who go head to head in the last challenge. The final videos will be screened and a panel of judges will crown the 2019 UK & Ireland NYX Professional Makeup Artist of the Year.
