The lucky Pro winners of the MAKE UP FOR EVER Contest won a Face and Body Painting training week at the MUFE Academy in Paris. Artistry and good vibes were in full effect.

It was hot in Paris this past July in more ways than one.
MAKE UP FOR EVER held a brilliant face painting contest in last Spring, inviting Pro make-up artists to reinterpret a well-known iconic character of their choice. The winners won a training week at the MAKE UP FOR EVER Academy in Paris.

In a funny twist, the contest had entries from all over the world but many of the winners came from countries where MAKE UP FOR EVER isn’t easily available! The work spoke for itself, though, and flags were flying for Thailand, Canada, the South of France and Melbourne, Australia.

Of the7 Pros, 5 had never done body painting before. Professor Noémie Contessi masterfully walked them through it, making it all seem easy. Seem being the operative word.

The classroom is a huge open loft space with a glass roof, lots of makeup stations, and a massive table filled with MAKE UP FOR EVER product. It’s like a big play station for makeup artists. Every morning, the spotlight is on a new technique: Monday, Colors, shade and light: Tuesday, Creation of effects and materials on the body (wood, marble, etc.), and so on.

After lunch they put their newfound knowledge to work on models. Dappled sunlight streaming into the loft made the models look even more amazing sitting in their high director’s chairs while the winners painted them.

The competition may have been fierce for the contest, but it’s clear to anyone watching, namely me, why these 7 makeup artists stood out.
