World’s first online make-up competition!

Recently I’ve got an e-mail from Faceup1.com, global beauty competitions network. They asked me if I’d want to be an ambassador and jury member for their challenging “World’s first online make-up competition 2010″.

Makeup Artist of the Year

To begin with, it’s well known fact that these kind of Makeup Artist of the Year competitions normally get held either live or in fashion and beauty magazines. So, this is the fist photo contest of it’s kind - and as I’m an open minded person and love all kind of pioneers work and challenge, I naturally said: yes! As the matter of fact, I feel honored they asked me.

This is what the organisation says about the make-up competition itself:

Our mission is to step the beauty profession up the 21th century using the
internet, as the possibility of today’s communication. We offer a new
opportunity for both the competitors and the active partners of the contest,
the participating schools and the media.

The essence of the global make-up competition is that the contestants’
creativity, art work can be free, over time and space, without any limits. We
offer possibility to the talented make-up artists, too, who live far from the
capital and the fashion centers, to whom live in villages and till now not have
possibility to demonstrate their knowledge to wide audience. This is a
competition where anything can happen. You can win and get world fame!

Competition deadline

The official competition entry / registration deadline is: August 27, 2010.
Update: The (new) official competition entry / registration deadline is: Monday, September 27, 2010!
You can apply this contest in 3 categories: “Amateur”, “Artist” and “Master”.

First online make-up competition.

Competition make-up challenge

Finally, I have to say this: either you’re a photographer, model, (student) make-up artist or just a regular visitor of this page… please spread the word. Encourage the make-up artists friends and colleagues that you know, to enter this competition challenge, send their artistic photo and win the price!

To give you an idea about the competition fairness: the members of the jury (like me) can see only the photos, all other competitors data remains hidden until the final result. Until the winners are known… which sounds pretty fair to me!

For what it’s worth, from my insiders source (let’s keep this as our secret, alright! ;-)), I already know, that there are at this very moment competitors from: Argentina, Colombia, Sweden, Poland, South, Africa, Germany, USA, France, Mexico, Romania… who already sent their art works - but unfortunately - there are no registered competitors from Netherlands yet. Be the first! Win and be the Makeup Artist of the Year!

So, if you like this whole idea, please help me a little. Share it on your (Facebook, StumbleUpon, MySpace, or any other) wall, spread the word among your friends, re-tweet it, write on your website about it - and eventually shout it from your roof.. As an ambassador and a jury member, I take my task seriously. You might also want to subscribe my newsletter if you want to get instantly these kind of articles in your mailbox as soon as they get published… Thank you!

Also, don’t forget to let me know under comments bellow, what you think about this idea, of an online make-up world competition? What are to your opinion pros and cons of such online challenges? What would you expect from it? Etc, etc.

Have your say!

    congratulations………..(although i think: it s a pitty you can’t sent your work in)….. it s a great idea you to be a member of jury

  2. Alexander Says:

    Thanks!

    I don’t think it would be fair towards other competitors if I’d be a jury member - and competitor. Being a member of jury is definitely gonna be fun… and above of all, after the competition they’re gonna publish an interview with me I’ve been told, so perhaps they’ll put some photo’s of my work on that interview page if they want it. I’ll leave that up to the organisation.

    Meanwhile I’ve heard they already got a few competitors entries - and one more jury member from Netherlands. So, I’m glad this page has done it’s job.. in less then 30 h. :)

  7. Alexander Says:

    Thank you lawyers ppl. I truly believe in your sincerity!

    Hey do you know that old joke which goes like: what do you call 1000 lawyers chained together at the bottom of the ocean?
    —–> A good start! ;-)

  8. andre sehat Says:

    very challenging…thank for the post..i’ll spread it

  9. Alexander Says:

    You promise?? If you come back with proof, I’ll leave your comment here forever. Otherwise I’ll delete your link within 4 weeks from now - and chain you at the bottom of the ocean together with lawyers. haha.

  10. DJ Morris Says:

    Alexander, I got a chuckle out of your response :)….spot on!

  11. LO Says:

    How is the competition going??
    Did I win??
    And did Andre Sehat do his job??
    And did DJ Morris recover from chuckle, laughter or giggling??

  12. Alexander Says:

    @Lo, I think the current situation is like this: the competition progress is just fine. According to the last message I received from Faceup1 Network (kinda thanks e-mail for all the effort of promoting it on this site, Facebook, Twitter, etc..) a week or two ago, was saying: we already have competitiors from nearly 40 countries.. and by now probably more. For the rest, no, you haven’t win anything yet. Andr Sehat is a spammer, so God bless his soul, the lawyers are criminals - whom you’ll never beat unless you know law better then them - or you better chain the suckers at the bottom of the ocean after all - and DJ Morris is probably still laughing his a$$ off… which means: so far so good. Everything is just as it should be.

  14. Adult Schoolgirl Costume Says:

    Never knew that these kind of competitions existed. Very interesting concept.

    I’d want to see a way for the best makeup ideas to be shared with the rest of the world. How can ordinary women/men benfit from new ideas and tips?

    Good stuff!

  15. Linda Secrets Says:

    I do not drop many remarks, but i did some searching and wound up here World’s first online make-up competition!. And I do have a few questions for you if you don’t mind. Could it be only me or does it look like some of these comments appear like they are left by brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are writing on other social sites, I’d like to follow everything new you have to post. Could you make a list of the complete urls of all your public pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
