Professional Beauty London Make-Up Competition winners 2021

Professional and learner make-up artists put their skills to the test in our prestigious Make-Up Competition at Professional Beauty London on October 17–18, with five MUAs scooping the top prizes.

The two-day competition, run by competition director and top MUA Lan Nguyen Grealis, consisted of five categories – Editorial, Film, Creative Influence, Bridal and Bodypainting – which allowed make-up artists to showcase their creativity and skills in application.

The categories were designed to reflect the ever-changing skills needed for today’s MUAs, with all who took part able to gain invaluable feedback and critique from the best make-up artists in the business. Judges were impressed with the calibre of professionals who entered this year.
