Valentine's Day Makeup Contest

QC Makeup Academy’s annual Valentine’s Day makeup contest is back!

This year, we’re looking for the ultimate “Va Va Voom” transformation. We want to see your Valentine makeovers—that means you get to flaunt your skills in makeup AND hair!

You don’t need to be a QC student to enter, everyone is welcome to show off their best “before & afters” and help us celebrate the power of makeup!

Hurry! Contest entries close on February 11th!

How It Works

To enter this contest, simply complete your makeover (makeup and hair), and send in your entry via email to at 11:59 PM Eastern Time on February 11th, 2016.

In your email, you’ll need to include the following:

  • Your full name
  • Your email address and a daytime phone number
  • Your full mailing address
  • Clear, high-quality Before and After photos of your model*
  • A brief description of the look you decided to create

You can be as creative as you want with your makeover! Is your model off to a Valentine’s Day date sporting a perfect red pout and a sultry smokey eye? Are they a creature from a magical land where sparkly red glitter reigns and love conquers all? It’s up to you!

On February 12th, we’ll select the finalists and post the Before and After shots to QC Makeup Academy’s Facebook Page. You’ll vote for your favorites by liking the photos of what you believe to be the best makeovers!

The photo with the most “likes” by February 16th will be our Va Va Voom Valentine’s Day Makeover Contest winner and will win the grand prize!

*Please send your Before and After shots as separate image files. We will make the collage for you to put on Facebook if you are selected as a finalist. Also note that your model’s before photo will be shared publicly, so make sure you have their permission!
