Face2Face Makeup Awards – Editorial 2018 RUNNERUP
Laud is a proud sponsor of the Photographic Category ‘Beauty Editorial’ which each year goes from strength to strength in entry numbers and also quality of work. This is an amazing prestigious event created by Beauty Expo Australia and held annually. All the entries for the “Beauty Editorial” are displayed during the 2 days at Expo, for all the visitors that attend to view the amazing work by super talented artists.
This year the theme was “Modern History”.
Makeup throughout history has allowed mankind to decorate, conceal, self-express, even celebrate who we are; from ancient Egyptian designs to the rich colour of the ‘80s, makeup has helped define who we think we are in whatever time period we have found ourselves in. Makeup is one of mankind’s easiest forms of self-expression. Create two Beauty Editorial images that take a 2018 spin on a Makeup period from the past that inspires you.
Over 40 makeup artists took this brief and created amazing imagery with it. The entrants organised their own model, photographer, styling and created two images they saw as their most beautiful representation of the Modern History brief. For some artists, this was their first creatively directed shoot.
Judging was tough and extremely close.
The Winner: Pearlin Bracewell, WA Australia. Runner Up: Sandy Tau, WA Australia.
Special Mentions: Shannon Jennings, QLD Australia and Christina Rodio, WA Australia.
We look forward to featuring Pearlin in an upcoming issue of LAUD.
I would like to commend each and every Artist that entered the Face2Face Competition. It is a difficult thing to put your work out in the public arena to be judged not only by your peers within the Industry, but also to be judged by the public. It is only when you totally believe in yourself and open yourself up to be judged that you can continue to grow as an artist.
I have included some favourites of mine that didnt place, I so look forward to seeing more work from all of you and also hope to see some new artists to the competition enter next year.
