NYX Cosmetics just announced Missy Lynn, the face and amazing talent behind YouTube's start2finishmua channel, as their 2013 FACE Awards Competition winner!
We have been waiting with bated breath for NYX to crown the winner out of their six finalists these last few days. The anticipation was killing us! But we guess that NYX had to take their pretty little time to find the ultimate beauty vixen, maven and viral queen. And on Saturday, 23-year-old Missy was deemed the chosen one at the second annual Fine Artistry of Cosmetic Elites a.k.a FACE Awards at Siren Studios in Hollywood.
The annual contest is a multi-national search to find YouTube's next beauty stars. Dozens of online beauty gurus entered this Spring, competing in a series of video makeup challenges before the field was narrowed down to six finalists, who completed their final challenge live with some of the internet's most digital influencers and beauty trendsetters in attendance.
A panel of VIP guests decided the contestants' fates, judging on creativity, educational content, artistry and personality.
Needless to say, Missy, who is an Los Angeles freelance makeup artist and active duty member of the U.S. Air Force, is super happy to wear the winner's crown.
"I'm so happy, motivated and overwhelmed," Missy said. "This moment is so surreal for me. I know winning this competition will take me to places I never even thought I could go - working with brands, being the face of brands, and going to red carpet events. It was all a dream and now it has a chance to be my reality."
Missy must be so super talented to have won the title of Beauty Vlogger of the Year at the live makeup challenge event. Congrats, Missy!
We know this lucky girl is reaping the beauty spoils of a job well done. Missy has won $25,000 consultations with pro makeup artists, a year's supply of NYX cosmetics and the promise of an amazing career in makeup artistry. Way to go!
