The IBI Awards Makeup Competition

Judged entirely independently, the IBI Awards is an International Hair & Makeup Competition open to any makeup or hair artist, anywhere in the world.

You’ll be judged on one thing – your work.

What would becoming Internationally Award-Winning mean to you?

The IBI (International Beauty Industry) Award is the first hair and makeup competition of its kind to celebrate the work of beauty artisans working behind-the-scenes all over the world.

Quality. Equality.

The IBI Award was created by people who passionately believe you don’t need to be a celebrity makeup artist or have millions of followers to create award-winning work.

The Makeup Competition for People (Not Products)

To recognize excellence, talent, hard work and creativity in global beauty industry artisans, regardless of who they are, where they come from, or who their clients are. 

“Love your page and so happy about your support to the beauty industry!”
