2 years ago I started teaching myself special effects makeup, I have been working hard and improving since.

Then along came this competition where I would be able to show case my skills called THE FACE AWARDS by NYX Professional Cosmetics. I knew I had to enter and amazingly was accepted to the top 30! In my last challenge (National Pride) I got through to the top 15 and now I am trying to make it to the top 6!!!

The makeup I made is below. To make it super cool and out there I added lights inside the prosthetic so that it glows!!

All in all I was up until 2am working on this (and 1am the two nights before hand getting ready) as well as juggling my final year of school!

To get to the next round I need YOUR vote! Just go to the link: https://faceawards.nyxcosmetics.com.au/

And press vote under “Lara Wirth” with the picture of my makeup, you can vote three times per day from June 8th-12th.
