Our next makeup challenge is going to be very exciting. This challenge’s theme is “STAR WARS,” and we are letting all of you amazing artists take the theme and run with it! Get creative, your options are endless. Do you want to create a prothestics makeup of a Snoke or Darth Maul? Maybe a fun beauty makeup replicating Princess Laya? Or an avant garde beauty makeup inspired by one of the Star Wars characters like the iconic artist Pat McGrath did for the Cover Girl campaigns? There are so many options!!! 

Our guest artists are Cat Paschen and Niko Gonzalez. You may have seen them on the hit TV show Faceoff or have run into them at the many conventions that they have done demos at. Their careers have been highly successful with work on films, TV shows, commercials and also at Universal Hollywood’s Halloween Horror Nights and Grinchmas. Cat and Niko travel the world doing what they love and recently launched their new prosthetics line “DYAD FX.” Are you excited to possibly have these two amazing artists see YOUR work?!

ENDING DATE: JUNE 19TH 2018 (this has been officially extended!)
*Grand prize includes products from Moonplay Cosmetics, MEL Products, Eurpean Body Art, and DYAD Prosthetic pieces*
