UPDATES | Rhia’s Audition for Canada’s Best Beauty Talent #cbbt

Earlier this year, Rogers Media and L’oreal Paris announced a very exciting collaboration – Canada’s Best Beauty Talent (CBBT) webisode series! The webisode will feature 12 artists (6 hair and 6 make-up) vying for the title of top spot over a series of hair and make-up competitions. As part of the application process, participants had to submit an audition video…here’s mine:

(The audio gets a little bit wonky at the end…or perhaps that should be my entry for my Canada’s Best Mime Talent lol).
The winner of CBBT receives an amazing prize package – including a portfolio review with top magazine editors, TV appearances, magazine features and incomparable networking opportunities. Also, for the grand prize winner, there’s a trip to Paris! Dream come true, non?!

Not going to lie…it would be a thrill to participate in this and the prize package is pretty much a freelance make-up artist’s dream! I’ve always loved watching make-over shows (think Carmindy!), the hair/make-up parts of Next Top Model (sorry Tyra – that’s all I can make it through!) – how amaaazing would it be to be one of the ones competing!!

Finalists will be contacted by mid-March, and I’m keeping my fingers crossed until then! CBBT will definitely be atop my must-watch list when it goes online in April.

Special thanks to Maayan Ziv, Alice Xue and Rosie Amio for helping me put this altogether.

Welcome to my journal and journey as a make-up and hair artist with all the beautiful people and products I encounter along the way.
