The Face2Face Awards grow stronger each year due to it being a competition that allows anyone to enter... the focus being the best Makeup on the day wins! It's an even playing field which always produces some surprises. The judges this year are phenomenal... and happy to announce two more Judges for the Beauty Editorial Category:


I have known Isabella Schimid for years... she is the one who taught me years ago that the best makeup training is studying editorial makeups and trying to replicate the looks and finishes in your own time so that when you go and create your own images... you are on trend and up to date in your skills. This was way back in the day when I was still replicating what I had learnt in school and the beauty editorial images I admired in magazines were still a world away from what I was producing. 

Fast forward a decade and the now beauty editor of YEN Magazine is coming to Beauty Expo to judge the Beauty Editorial category. Isabella is an amazing talent and we are looking froward to having her for the first time as a judge for Face2Face. Isabella said she will be looking for:

".... amazing skin and a creative cool element to the image. Modern and clean!"


Rae is a constant support of the awards and we are lucky once again to have Rae squeeze into her full schedule, judging for the Beauty Editorial Category. Rae has this to say for everyone entering:

"... Remember who prints beauty editorial, it's magazines like 'Vogue', 'Harpers Bazaar' and 'Laud' magazines. Keep it beautiful and most of all, remember you need to appeal to women! Sometimes it's what you don't do that can be your strongest point. For example, no brow or no lip can make your shots a winner. Over doing everything will no longer be beauty... look at Vogue and Harpers and be inspired by the beauty shoots they do. Be careful not to overdo the hair and styling to look "theatrical"... keep it modern. And don't over retouch! If it looks even slightly over retouched in your eyes... it's too retouched."

There are FIVE categories in the FACE2FACE AWARDS:
