NYX Hosts VBlogger of the Year Contest at IMATS! Celebrity Makeup Artist Judges!

Over the years, the beauty vlogger community has grown into one of the most popular and fun channels on YouTube and across the web. NYX Cosmetics created the Fine Artistry of Cosmetic Elites (FACE) Awards to give back to the online beauty community and reward the best of the beauty vloggers for their passion and creativity.

The FACE Awards kicked off on March 6 with an open call for entries, naming the initial 30 contestants who then went through numerous challenges – which were voted on by the public.

The result was the final six who were flown to Los Angeles. On Sunday, June 24th, the six finalists competed in a live runway competition and presented their final runway looks.
