Castlegar make-up artist Krystal Sutherland has made it into the top five in the L’Oreal’s Brush Contest and will be heading to Toronto to compete for the top spot and a trip to Paris.
The Brush Contest is a country-wide make-up competition. Contestants uploaded three-minute videos to YouTube displaying a unique look with the theme of colour clash.
Sutherland will be heading to Toronto March 27. The winner of this stage goes on to Paris for a chance to be L’Oreal’s next make-up designer.
“It’s been a crazy ride,” she said.
After placing second in online voting, Sutherland expected to receive a congratulatory email explaining what would happen next. She had no idea they would ask her to travel to Toronto to compete against the remaining five finalists.
The competition is to be covered in real time by eTalk Canada.
L’Oreal has not revealed details of the competition’s theme but have stated there will be a specific theme.
Sutherland said the uncertainty is nerve-wracking.
“I’m going to have to practice a couple different things and be prepared for anything.”
The last time Sutherland checked, before voting closed, she had nearly 7,000 votes.
