Congratulations to Glam & Gore for winning Beauty Vlogger of The Year at the 4th Annual NYX Face Awards! Hosted by Kelly Osborne at Club Nokia in Downtown LA, the room was filled with bloggers, vloggers, makeup artists & beauty lovers of all kind, waiting to see if their favorite YouTuber would take home the most coveted beauty award of the year. Each contestant was required to complete a series of video challenges displaying their original artwork for a grand prize award winning of $25,000 and an array of other fabulous prizes!
For the final video challenge, each contestant conveyed their “True Colors” through makeup and visuals. The video that caught my attention, and apparently the judges, was Mykie’s aka Glam & Gore’s transformation from a Glamorous Beauty Queen into a hilariously witty, yet spooky looking creature. She used her skills to encourage viewers to embrace their beauty as well as their inner goofy, spooky selves.
Judges include Academy Award winning makeup artist Ve Neill (Batman, Spiderman, The Hunger Games & Pirates of the Caribbean), Vegas Nay, (international makeup artist with over 6 million instagram followers and Top 100 rated Instagram account), Bunny Meyer aka Grave3YardGirl (Beauty/Fashion vlogger with over 5 millionYouTube subscribers) & Jade Taylor NYLON Magazine’s Senior Beauty Editor who has interviewed celebrities like Jennifer Lawrence, Paris Hilton & Gigi Hadid.
Sponsors include NYX Professional Makeup, Target, Redken, LuLu’s, GHD, Clarisonic, Lola Shoetique, Audio Network & HTC.
