Do you have what it takes to win NZMUA2018?

NZMUA2018 is open to any amateur or professional makeup artist (female or male), residing in New Zealand at the time of judging. 

Any brand of makeup may be used for the entry although it must be stated what was used on the entry. 

All entries must be accompanied by a short video showing the artist and the model in natural light to prove photos are not airbrushed or filtered.
