Creative Makeup Artistry Contest Winners Announced

November 4, 2020
Paul Mitchell Schools

The results are in! After poring through entries from more than 200 Paul Mitchell Future Professionals, professional makeup artists Yvonne Macinnis and Lijha Stewart selected three top winners, based on creativity and technical execution. Yvonne and Lijha launched the contest by demonstrating and teaching two editorial/avant-garde makeup looks during a live virtual master class. Future Professionals then designed and applied one of the looks on a face chart, themselves, or a model (using The Creative Makeup techniques and products, and following social-distancing protocols). To enter, they posted their looks on Instagram with the hashtag #PMTScreativemakeupcontest. The grand prize winner received The Creative Makeup collection and The Creative Makeup Bootcamp: Digital Experience course download—valued at over $300. Each runner-up received The Creative Makeup products.

Congratulations to everyone who entered, and to our 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners!
