Our latest Warpaint Challenge comes from cult British brand, Illamasqua. Proud of their reputation for being one of the original beauty disrupters and renowned for bold artistry, their pioneering attitude and vivid colour palette gives makeup artists the tools to unleash your unique creativity through experimentation.
Entitled #ReadMyLips, this competition is inspired by the 24 colours new Illamasqua UltraMatter and Sheer Veil vegan lipsticks. Your challenge is to create a piece of original lip art using Cosmic Dust as your theme. Take your inspiration from space and the celestial bodies that inhabit the outer reaches of our universe.
Incorporating the face if you wish, but with the definite focus on the lips, your work can be on yourself or someone you share your home or social bubble with. Cosmetic products only are to be used, no craft paints, craft glitters, etc. Submissions are to be a maximum of three images and/or one video. Entrants must tag @warpaint_mag and @illamasqua and @frankiemckernon. Tags must be in the photos of entries (not just in comments or stories). Entries without photo tags will not show up on the judges’ wall and will not be entered into the judging.
The work submitted must be new and entries must be specifically created for this competition. The prize is valued at over £500 and comprises of the New UltraMatter and Sheer Veil Lipsticks collections of 24 different shades; the new Illamasqua Movement Artistry Palette and a Pro Set Bag.
The competition will be judged by Frankie McKernon, Head of Professional Development at Illamasqua and closing date is 12 noon (BST) 17th August. The winner will be announced on Friday 21st August.
