If you’re both a music and a makeup lover, I have exciting news for you. e.l.f. announced its fifth annual Beautyscape competition, and you’ll never guess the prize. By entering the contest, you get not only the opportunity to learn about the beauty industry from the professionals themselves, but you could also team up with one of the biggest names in music to create an e.l.f. cosmetic or skincare collection inspired by music. Oh, and you could also win a $10,000 cash prize. The contest closes on Friday, Sept. 18, with three lucky winners announced at the beginning of October.
The final three winners of Beautyscape 5.0 will each work with either Latin star Pitizion, R&B singer Tiana Major9, or Grammy-winning artist Tove Lo. They’ll team up with a certain musician to create a line inspired by music genres that will be sold nation-wide come summer 2021. To help the winners get in the creating mood, there will also be nine digital classes focused on movement, cooking, and makeup to get the juices flowing.
On Monday, Oct. 5, e.l.f. took to Instagram to reveal the wildly talented Beautyscape 5.0 winners: Karol Rodriguez, an NYC-based makeup artist known for beautiful eye and complexion makeup with explosive color; Michael Brooks, a London-based MUA whose looks are a stunning lesson in illusion and graphics; and Emily Anne Carden, a Colorado-based MUA who rose to fame on TikTok for her amazing makeup tutorials and use of color. Seriously, the talent in this bus is astronomical.
Thousands of makeup enthusiasts entered the e.l.f. Beautyscape 5.0 contest by submitting photos of a makeup look inspired by a certain music genre. With so many entries and so much clear makeup talent (seriously, when did every single person become a pro makeup artist???), the competition was stacked. But with this small group of winners, e.l.f.'s upcoming collections are about to be straight fire
“Through our signature Beautyscape event, we want to empower emerging creators to push the boundaries of beauty even further while inspiring the next wave of rising stars,” Kory Marchisotto, chief marketing officer at e.l.f., said in a press release shared with Elite Daily. “We’re thrilled to work alongside such a talented group of music artists as we continue to pass the torch through our Beautyscape event, this year with a remix focused on the intersection of beauty and music.”
Beautyscape 5.0: The Remix is an amazing opportunity to think about your makeup in a different way, and the three winners are definitely the ones to watch. Keep an eye out on e.l.f.'s Instagram for even more Beautyscape updates.
