It's time to get spooky and show off your skills during our Halloween at Camera Ready Contest! This year, we are searching for a talented SFX Artist to join our talented team of video and blog tutorial creators, so get creative and show us your best work!

The Details

Each year, we work with talented artists for our SFX Tutorial Series and feature their work on our website and social media! This summer, we are looking for talented makeup artists and makeup lovers to join in the fun!

The Camera Ready Cosmetics team will select TWO winners based on their overall use of the makeup, creativity, and passion for all things SFX and beauty.



We will be judging attention to detail, the use of the products, and overall creativity. Use of prosthetics and fake blood is not necessary and will not increase your chances of winning. Photo/video quality will be taken into consideration.
