This week I am taking a light hearted look at a couple of the themes for the FACE2FACE MAKEUP AWARDS... the date for close of entries is looming and I secretly wish I could enter myself!
The Beauty Editorial category was something I introduced last year as I thought it would 1 - not ony be a fun category but 2 - open a forum for makeup artists around Australia to be able to enter a national competition.
This year the brief is:
BEAUTY EDITORIAL INSPIRED (Photography)
Create two beauty images for a new Australian Beauty Magazine.
They must be cover worthy as the magazine plans on running both images as cover shots for its launch issue.
(Optional covers for customers)
Both images must be original makeups, go together when placed side by side and be the kind of beauty shots that would make makeup lovers want to pick up and buy that magazine.
*please note this is a hypothetical brief.
I had to include in the brief that it was HYPOTHETICAL as one of the prizes in this category is the winning images are published in Professional Beauty Magazine and I didn't want entrants thinking it would definitely make the cover.
So for this post... I thought it would be great to compile a collection of Beauty Makeup that has in fact graced the covers of our favourite magazines to get wet the creative whistle.
NOW! - this is NOT a 'how to' - 'This is how to crop your pic' - 'This is what we want to see' - 'Here are perfect examples of what to do in your entry' images... this is a nice look at what amazing beauty has graced the covers in the past. There are no cheat sheets for this category so dont read between the lines to look for an advantage... your advantage (if you are entering) is to produce two cover shots that you are proud of and make you heart sing.
I find these covers interesting, beautiful, wonderful and alluring.
So... your possibilities for this category are endless! I absolutely CAN NOT wait to see what our entrants come up with!!!!
If you haven't entered... ENTER HERE!
