Our Story
Wedding Makeup

How it works

The contestants may team up with another contestant, for example a hairstylist and makeup artist can work together, or one contestant may wish to work on their own. Each team must provide a model to walk down the runway, as well as an appropriate bridal outfit to the category you have chosen - tip - team up with your local bridal boutiques! There will be a designated area for all the contestants to provide hair and makeup onsite at the La Banque de Fleuve for their models. The participants will have 2 hours to get their models stage ready to walk the runway in the front of the judges and audience. Food + non-alcoholic beverages will be provided for the contestants generously by

Pat's Pizzeria Edgewood.


You pick your look, whether you are going for a classic look, boho, ultimate glam, vintage... it is up to you how you present your work and model.
