AUG 17, 2016:
The moment has finally come. On August 20th, the best and brightest in digital beauty will gather in Los Angeles for the 2016 NYX Face Awards. The winner will get the title of 2016 Beauty Vlogger of the Year, and win $50,000 cash, along with other amazing prizes!
If you are already attending, keep reading for a play by play of what to expect and what to wear. If you are still interested in going, you can add your name to the Waitlist here.
The evening will be hosted by the one and only Kandee Johnson. She has done projects with Honda, Visa and Viacom, so we anticipate she will keep the show running smoothly all night.
Charisma Star is your Master of Ceremonies, and it only seems fitting, considering she was a finalist in the first ever FACE Awards back in 2012.
Ranging from professional make-up artists to vloggers to beauty editors, the judges for this year’s FACE Awards create an all-star panel. Ingrid Nilsen will represent the vlogger contingent, while renowned makeup artist Ve Neill will judge from the professional perspective. On the editor side, Megan McIntyre of Refinery29 and Melissa Giannini of NYLON will also serve.
What would an event at The Novo be without some musical performances? Sister Duo Chloe X Halle will be on hand to deliver some of their amazing covers, and Drag Queen Alyssa Edwards is ready to slay.
Before the event, make sure you are well versed in the six finalists. Check out their submissions, in no particular order, below.
The Gift Bag
While we don’t know what is specifically in the gift bag, the event’s sponsors promise it will be an impressive loot. Expect swag from Redken, Clarisonic, Target, Vans, Lulus and The Body Shop.
What To Wear
Dress to impress! But make sure your look fits the venue’s guidelines of top, bottom and shoes, plus no offensive clothing. Really go for it and get creative.
