Finally, the moment we have all been waiting for! The sixth annual NYX FACE Awards finally took place on August 19, hosted by the one and only Patrick Star. Not only that, drag queen Alyssa Edwards, seen on RuPaul’s Drag Race performed an opening dance, along with a musical performance by singer Willow Smith.
The looks created for this award never fail to surprise us, as they are always AMAZING, making the competition even more difficult. However, this year, the world chose Jessica Kalil as the winner. As the Beauty Vlogger of the Year, Jessica will receive $50,000, a year’s supply of NYX Professional Makeup, and the opportunity to kick-start a professional career in makeup artistry. The five runner-ups will each receive $15,000 and a year’s supply of NYX Professional Makeup.
In April, NYX Professional Makeup received thousands of video entries; from there, a panel of judges selected the 30 semi-finalists. After creating looks inspired by the challenge themes, “Royalty,” “Animal Kingdom,” and “Cyberpunk,” the semi-finalists were narrowed down to the top six finalists via rounds of public voting.
Official 2017 FACE Awards sponsors included Redken, Shoedazzle, Target, Clarisonic, Microsoft, The Body Shop, Tatcha, Kitsch, Quay Australia, Forever 21, and Audio Network.
Here is a list of all of the runner-ups: AshGhotCakessTV, Colour Creep, itslikelymakeup, NSomniaksDream, and Victoria Lyn Beauty
