For the third year running, the Dream Beautiful Contest is back! Brought to you by cosmetics and skin care brand Mary Kay, the Asia-Pacific competition aims to not only discover a new modelling star, but also to find that talented make-up artist who’s been flying under the radar – until now. Mary Kay’s vision is to enrich women’s lives, and help them to appreciate both their inner and outer beauty, and it’s doing that by encouraging women to team up with a Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultant and work on their dreams.
So, how do you enter and how does it all work?
Firstly, you need to find a Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultant and get a makeover. You can head to the Dream Beautiful Contest website between now and November 30 to choose a make-up artist. Just be sure to take a ‘before’ and ‘after’ shot of your makeover for your entry!Once you’ve completed your makeover, you’ll need to give your Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultant permission (i.e. sign a few forms) to upload the pictures and some of your personal information. And then you’re done!After that, the public votes online for the top 10 semi-finalists, and the scores will be considered along with the results of the judging panel’s evaluation. Next, the panel picks the top two finalists to go to the weeklong Asia-Pacific Grand Finale in February 2016. These finalists and their beauty consultants will head to Hong Kong for the Asia-Pacific Finale and will represent Australia and New Zealand. Local winners will take part in a week of training workshops, individual and team challenges before the winners are selected during a live catwalk show.
