The Battle Rages On

Tick tock make-up warriors!

Toronto’s Battle of the Brushes submission deadline is looming. It’s not too late to throw your hat into the ring but it soon will be, come July 23.

A little late to the game and don’t know what Battle of the Brushes is? Think Face Off but, like, the older cooler sibling that started it all. Battle of the Brushes has been around since 1998 and is still going strong with student competitors from around the world vying for a chance to compete.

The 2018 beauty/fantasy category theme is Wildwood Warrior. This theme is all about empowerment, independence, sub-cultural earthiness and fantasy. Wildwood Warrior is alluring and epic, with a touch of mystical, vibrant playfulness.

The character/prosthetic theme is Victorian Emporium. This is symbolic of a Jules Verne/Thomas Edison aesthetic and desire for 1800s facial hair—while conjuring up a sort of cabinet of curiosities, full of magic, mad science, invention and adventure. 

IMATS/Make-Up Artist magazine will only accept competition entries postmarked by July 23, 2018. Finalist results will be announced the week of August 10, 2018
