Can you recreate a runway look with drugstore cosmetics? Then you may want to enter the Be a Sensational Makeup Artist contest, sponsored by Maybelline New York and CVS/pharmacy. The top prize is an assistant make-up artist position at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week during the fall 2011 shows in New York City.
To enter, participants must submit videos of themselves creating a make-up look on themselves, a friend or a family member with Maybelline New York cosmetics. The competition is open through Oct. 15.
A panel of beauty experts—including Maybelline New York make-up artists and executives—will select five finalists, although the public will determine the grand-prize winner through online voting. The winner’s make-up look will be showcased in the Feb. 2011 issue of a top beauty/fashion magazine. The winner will also receive a trip for two to New York City, a professional make-up artist kit full of Maybelline products, a gift bag and the chance to assist a Maybelline New York Artist backstage at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.
Online voting will take place from Oct. 20-Nov. 7. Voters will be automatically entered to win prizes, including an all-expense paid trip for two to New York City, two tickets to a show at Fashion Week in New York, a beauty makeover and gift bags.
