Shu Uemura is looking for the next big makeup artist in North America
This is huge! Shu Uemura is holding the first Beauty Art Makeup Competition in North America. Starting March 8th, aspiring makeup artists can register for a chance to participate in the contest. A panel of judges will pick 20 artists out of the bunch, who will be given 5 challenges, and the videos will be posted on Shu Uemura's Facebook page. Fans of the Facebook page get to vote on the looks, and the contestants will be narrowed down to 5 finalists. The 5 selected finalists get to travel to Luminato, Toronto Festival of Arts and Creativity, where they will compete in the final makeup challenge. One lucky winner will be selected to become a member of the Shu Uemura makeup artist team and represent the brand in North America.
This is a huge opportunity for an up-and-coming MUA, so make sure you register to compete on the Facebook page!
This year's theme is Mystic Nature, and I can't wait to see how the makeup artists are inspired by all the beautiful colors found in nature.
Best of luck to all the contestants.
