Application from July 2024

Competition for creative young make-up artists

The competition for young make-up artists is one of the annual highlights of COSMETICA Berlin. Students, young make-up artists and young professionals with a maximum of three years of professional experience can take part – starting with the qualification as a make-up artist. The COSMETICA Newcomer sees itself as a professional platform for this target group. It is not only important to specifically promote young talents and present them to a broad specialist audience. The competition also enjoys a high reputation, is sought after and is considered a “door opener” into the industry for the prize winner.
An independent jury of experts initially selects the three best candidates from the applications received. They will then compete against each other in the grand finale at COSMETICA Berlin. Here they have to create a complete make-up on a given topic.
The winner will be honored at a glamorous awards ceremony. In addition to a cash prize for the winner, all three finalists can look forward to high-quality product prizes from the sponsors.

The tender documents can be found here from July 2024.
