Makeup Artist Jennifer Ellis has been named the winner in 3 categories of the 2018 International Beauty Industry Awards, beating out contestants from 15 different countries. She has received 3 luxurious, hand-crafted statuettes, designed by the same people who make the Golden Globes®, Emmys®, MTV® awards, and People's Choice Awards. Jennifer also made finalist in a 4th Category.
“I’m still pinching myself that I was named the winner, and in 3 categories. It's such an honour that someone like me, who is not from a big city, could compete with those from the likes of New York, Paris and London,”she said.
The Judging Council is made up of industry experts worldwide who do not see any identifying information, such as names, following, sponsorships, backgrounds or the candidate's country of origin. This means winning is based on skill alone, and not how many friends/followers an artist has.
Ms Ellis specialises in beauty makeup and is known for her ability to create mind-blowing results, while still looking natural.
“A lot of people believe makeup to be creative and having fun playing with colour. But, when you approach makeup from a scientific perspective, you can really enhance someone’s beauty. The science of colour, geometry, and the science of light & dark create the perfect look for the exact face you are working on.” says Ms Ellis.
Ms Ellis has spent years honing her craft and is highly sought after right across the industry with runway shows, magazine publications, motion and countless brides. She also made it as a finalist in 3 categories in the Asia Pacific Makeup Artist Guild awards earlier this year.
What is in store for Ms Ellis now? “I know how confident women feel when they like what they see in the mirror, and it’s a very powerful thing to help women see the beauty within themselves. Especially when the world is usually telling us what's 'wrong' with us, rather than celebrating what's 'right'. I will continue to empower women as much as I possibly can, and hopefully this inspires others to do the same.” She said.
