It's time to get spooky and show off your skills during our Halloween Contest! This year, we are searching for talented SFX and Makeup Artists to join our talented team of video and blog tutorial creators, so get creative and show us your best work!
LEFT TO ENTER
In addition to SFX and Face & Body Paint submissions, we are looking for talented makeup artists and makeup lovers to join in the fun! The Camera Ready Cosmetics team will select FOUR total winners (two from each category) based on their overall use of the makeup, creativity, and passion for all things SFX and beauty. Photo and video quality will be considered.
For our Total Transformation category, go all out! This category is for the SFX lovers, prosthetic experts and anyone wanting to show off the full range of their skills. Submit looks with abundant use of fake blood, wounds, and full face and/or body paint transformations to partake in this category. Gore and prosthetics are not required.
For our Glam category, we invite you to create a makeup look that shows off your skills and creativity. Combine both traditional makeup techniques with SFX or face/body paint elements while not fully transforming yourself. Minimal gore elements may be included in this category.
Examples are provided below the FAQ.
There will be FOUR total winners, a 1st and 2nd Place Winner for each category. All four winners will have their work featured on the CRC website and social media, and one grand prize winner (selected from the two 1st Place Winners) will be featured in a blog spotlighting their work and career. In addition, the four winners will also receive the following:
The two 1st Place Winners will receive a $250 Gift Card to www.camerareadycosmetics.com.
The two 2nd Place Winners will receive a $100 Gift Card to www.camerareadycosmetics.com.
