Professional Beauty London 2024 Makeup Competition

March 28th, 2024

March 28th, 2024

The weekend of 3rd and 4th March saw the 2024 Professional Beauty London Makeup Competition held at Excel London.  Over two days, we saw both professionals and students eager to demonstrate their skill and preparation work in front of our amazing judges.

The competition was co-hosted by Warpaint’s own Director Emma Rutherford and renowned celebrity makeup artist Lan Nguyen Grealis, holding six categories over the two days, each with a professional and student division.  Joining Emma and Lan was the fabulous judging panel comprised industry professionals Emma Cammack, Jennie Roberts, Cat Finlayson, James Mac, Carolyn Roper, Tania Grier, Tanya Noor, Joy Adenuga, Zoe Cornwell, Armand Beasley, Louis Byrne, Martin Carter and Wolf Reicherter.

The Weekend

On the Sunday, artists competed in the Bodypainting Professional category, inspired by ‘The Elements of Earth, Wind, Fire and Water’, as well as the Bridal Professional category which had the brief of ‘Enchanted Bride’.  On Monday, the students arrived to join alongside the rest of the professionals in the remaining eight divisions.  In the morning, the Bodypainting Student division began, again inspired by ‘The Elements of Earth, Wind, Fire and Water’, as well as the Catwalk category centred around Vivienne Westwood, and the Character category inspired by the ‘West End stage’.  In the afternoon the Bridal Student division began, as well as the Creative Front Cover division, which was left to the interpretation of the competitors.  As well as the competition on the floor, there was also an online Insta Makeup Category, voted for online.

Each day culminated in a prize giving, co-hosted by Emma and Lan alongside the amazing judges.  Lan generously organised goodie bags for those who placed, with over £1000 worth of product for the winning entries – thank you to Lan for organising this!  The level of talent, as well as the number of entrants, was higher than ever, and the hard work and extensive preparation by the competitors was evident.
