2nd Place - Modern Basic Makeup Competition at ABA (Allied Beauty Association) Show

This was my first competition; I made the final cut out of 8. When I got there they didn’t have my name tag and I got worried since I drove from Calgary to Edmonton for this competition. Finally they let me in. Modern Basics had a huge stand, one to sell their products and one stand for the competitors. For those of you who haven’t heard of Modern Basics they are a private labelling company, so people buy products from then and put their own labels on them.

They gave each artist a complete makeup brush kit, an 88 shadow palette and more stuff we got to keep. YAY!

So the makeup artists had 45 minutes to do a red carpet look, and 2.5 hours for decade fantasy. That includes makeup, dressing, and hair. We had 15 minutes to get the makeup we needed for the first look. I was so excited I grab the all the face and eye products i needed, TOTALLY FORGOT about the cheeks and the lips! During the competition I looked like a clown going through the crowd to grab the rest of the makeup I needed to complete the look. I did a soft grey smoky eye and coral lips and cheeks.

Then the models took their pictures, we got a lunch break and did some shopping. Once we returned we had another 15 minutes to pick out our makeup for our decade makeup look. My palette had awesome colors since I was going an 80’s inspired look. Most of the makeup artists finished before time ended. My look turned out better than I thought in my mind. I kept it very crisp and clean. Here are the pictures!

So for the results it took about 10 days for the competitors to find out. I got second place and this is what I will get as my prize!
