Are you a makeup artist in NZ (self taught or trained)?
Are you comfortable filming tutorials (or willing to be)?
Would you like to have the chance to win a makeup artistry contract worth $148,000?
Would you like to potentially go to Paris, attend a makeup boot camp, and hang out with the likes of Eva Longoria?
L’Oréal Paris is launching The Brush Contest, the world’s first-ever international makeup designer contest taking place exclusively on YouTube.
The competition gathers contestants from 13 countries including New Zealand and Australia which combine to find an ANZ winner.
The Brush Contest is open to professionals, amateurs, bloggers, vloggers and YouTubers. Just two rules apply: you have to be a true beauty junkie and be at least 16 years old.
The winner gets a dream-come-true, one year makeup designer contract with L’Oréal Paris valued at €100,000 (NZ$148,000). He or she is also invited to join L’Oréal Paris’ behind-the-scenes team at one of the most glamourous events of the year – the Cannes International Film Festival.
The top three entrants from New Zealand also receive a one-day experience with L’Oréal Paris NZ Makeup Director Lisa Matson to learn more about the industry. And throughout 2015, the three winners will receive newly launched products before they hit stores for a sneak peek preview of what’s to come for the brand.
To enter, entrants are required to upload a three minute makeup tutorial video to L’Oréal Paris’ The Brush Contest website – thebrushcontest.com – using the ‘Aus/NZ’ drop-down option, and the public vote for the local winner. Submissions close on the 15th of February!
The ANZ winner is then sent to Paris to compete in the final boot-camp round in the City of Lights before having a front row seat at the Grand Finale event which broadcast on YouTube on May 1, 2015.
The star-studded evening – hosted by none other than L’Oréal Paris star spokesperson and woman of worth Eva Longoria – celebrates L’Oréal Paris’ passion for colour and its makeup designer edge.
The competition is bound to be intense. In addition to New Zealand and Australia, The Brush Contest is open to aspiring makeup artists in France, USA, Canada, UK, Germany, China, Thailand, Italy and Turkey.
