I have just got to post about this great contest that’s going on within Canada.  Not just because L’Oréal has been talking about it….but also because 2  3 amazingly talented people I personally know have submitted entries.  I actually hope some more people will get ‘vocal’ with me on twitter and mention that they have submitted!  I love seeing new beauty talent!

From the press release:

Scheduled to premiere in April 2012, Canada’s Best Beauty Talent will utilize L’Oréal Canada’s unparalleled beauty expertise in order to showcase the country’s up-and-coming beauty experts as they vie for the title in a series of unique and innovative challenges. Bringing together leading Rogers Media entertainment and lifestyle brands – Citytv, FLARE, HELLO! Canada, LOULOU and Chatelaine – and L’Oréal Canada’s top beauty brands, including L’Oréal Paris, each episode will see promising hair and makeup artists teamed up to create a specific look, corresponding with the theme of each week’s challenge. Twists, turns and drama unfold as the contestants compete to impress the panel of judges in the hopes of being named Canada’s Best Beauty Talent. For more information visit www.bestbeautytalent.com.

Not only is the competition itself exciting but L’Oréal Paris has just announded that the one and only Coco Rocha will be hosting this competition!

I am super excited to announce that 2  3 incredibly talented individuals that I have the pleasure of knowing have submitted entries for this contest.  If I was judging, they would automatically be in front of the panel but I am *slightly* biased.  Slightly.

What I love most about being a makeup artist is the privilege of being able to have an outlet to create. From the simplicity of an everyday look for a woman on the go, to the bold makeup featured in a creative photoshoot – I will continue to contribute to the outer beauty of a person to match all the beauty on the inside.

i attempt to contrive beauty in all aspects of my life & i never cease to be inspired.

Lelo has always had an addiction to the world of make-up, which makes it easy to understand why she has a love for this industry. Her motto ” your face, my canvas”, means just that. She is an artist that thrives on enhancing the beauty in others.

Lelo’s talent is demonstrated by her keen eye for detail. Whether it’s making a bride feel extra beautiful on her special day or last minute additions on a photoshoot set, she is extremely meticulous with every stroke of her brush. Being able to instantly come up with creative ideas and using unconventional materials to apply to the face has made her a well sought after make-up artist.

Ande’s passion for makeup started early on and developed from a hobby to a career as a Freelance Makeup Artist to Beauty Blogger and Beauty Expert.     Currently, Ande is a full time lead makeup artist and Beauty Expert for Shoppers Drug Mart Beauty Boutique and is currently instructing master classes “Makeup School” every week.  You can also  find Ande working away at independent  freelance projects throught the greater Toronto area.                                                             

Please please please check these ladies out-you will be blown away by their talent!  The contest itself will be incredible!
