BEAUTY INTERNATIONAL DÜSSELDORF 2006: "Golden Mask for Make-Up Artists" to be awarded for the first time

For the first time, Berlin-based firm Kryolan along with Messe Düsseldorf GmbH will be awarding the "Golden Mask for Make-Up Artists” to make-up professionals in 2006. The annual prize, to be presented at the cosmetics trade fair BEAUTY INTERNATIONAL on Saturday, 18 March, is designed to honour a make-up artist for their creativity and associated merits in contributing to the image of the profession. Furthermore, the importance of make-up is to be highlighted in a sustainable manner.
Make-up is an important segment of applied cosmetics - after all, a well cared-for complexion is ideally complemented by professionally applied make-up. All the more on the catwalk or at film and photo studios where the make-up artist's work is indispensable.
BEAUTY INTERNATIONAL and, hence, also Düsseldorf are an ideal backdrop for this award ceremony since the fashion destination Düsseldorf guarantees unparalleled proximity to international fashion and lifestyle. Needless to say, events like BEAUTY INTERNATIONAL, TOP HAIR and cpd have consolidated the standing of Düsseldorf as a fashion capital for years now.
The jury will be composed of one representative from the firm Kryolan and one from Messe Düsseldorf, a renowned representative of the cosmetics industry as well as one technical journalist. The prize will go to a professional for his/her creativity and innovations, for special make-up jobs, for training up-and-coming make-up artists or for extraordinary merits in the service of a make-up brand.
The presentation of the "Golden Mask for Make-Up Artists” Award 2006 will be held on Saturday, 18 March 2006, at 3.30 pm ahead of the International Make-Up Championship at the Meeting Point in Hall 10.
