Starting March 8th, 2011, upcoming industry talent and aspiring makeup artists can register for a chance to participate in Shu Uemura’s 1st North American Beauty Art Makeup Competition.
The theme for this year’s competition is “Mystic Nature”. Allow your imagination to be influenced by the enigmatic combination of colors and patterns found in wildlife to expose the irrefutable beauty that nature reflects.
Amongst all applications received, a panel of judges will select 20 outstanding artists to complete 5 makeup challenges with videos posted on the Shu Uemura Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/shuuemurausa.
The 20 finalists will have to create unique looks that will demonstrate their artistic talents and showcase their potential to be an exceptionally creative makeup artist. By voting for their favorite looks, Facebook fans will ultimately select their 5 favorite contestants.
On June 14th, 2011, the 5 selected finalists will have the chance to attend Luminato, Toronto Festival of Arts and Creativity, where they will complete the final makeup challenge during a live event in Toronto, Ontario.
Only one lucky winner will be selected by a jury of industry professionals during the live event. The winner will become a member of the Shu Uemura Makeup Artist team and will represent the brand in North America.
