About FACE Awards

FACE Awards is a contest presented annually, highlighting the best and brightest in the digital makeup community. The word FACE stands here for Fine Artistry of Cosmetics Elites.

Now in its sixth year in US, the FACE Awards have mirrored the explosive growth of the digital beauty community. In 2016, thousands of aspiring makeup artists submitted entries and a global audience watched them in streamed live finale in LA, where one extraordinary finalist, Laura Sanchez, received the esteemed title of Beauty Vlogger of the Year along with a significant prize package.

The contest has spread across the globe, with 24 international competitions hosted in 2016 to recognize the best and brightest makeup artists from all corners of the world. These international winners all were flown to Los Angeles for a week of exciting NYX Professional Makeup events, content creation, and of course a feature at our live finale. Amazing makeup definitely knows no (language) barriers!

This year we are announcing Nordic FACE Awards for the second time. The first ever Nordic FACE Awards was a success beyond belief, gaining hundreds of entries, tens of thousands of votes, and 2,3 million video views.

Any established or up-and-coming makeup artist in Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland and Iceland, over the age of 18, can participate in this pioneering digital makeup event. It consists of four stages and three creative challenges. Each round the participants will be selected based on criteria including creativity, artistry, educational value and presentation skills. The top 30 will get a supersize product package from NYX Professional Makeup. The winner will receive the title of Nordic Beauty Vlogger of the Year, win 10 000 euro and get the chance to travel to LA to witness the live finale of US FACE Awards 2017.
