Eek! I cannot believe I have been chosen as one of the top 20 contestants for the first ever NYX UK Face Awards. The other 19 contestants who have been chosen are all absolutely amazing and I cannot believe that I am seen as good enough amongst so many (what seem to be) qualified artists – many of whom I have been following/admiring for a while.
The NYX Face Awards is a competition where the winner will win £10,000 and a trip to LA all based on their makeup and creativity skills!
When I received the news that I was in the top 20 I was completely shocked and inspired. When I look back to 10 years ago when I would feebly lift up my limp arm to apply mascara through shaky paralysed hands, almost poking myself in the eye, I couldn’t be prouder that I’m seen as the top 20 out of like 160+ applicants. Thank you NYX for making me realise I should be proud.
For the first challenge I have to create a very short video (90 seconds…ahh!) with a ‘Quintessentially British’ theme which I’m so excited to get started with. I’m just waiting for my box of goodies from NYX to arrive to start putting my ideas onto my face! Before I do any of that though I will be filming an unboxing video of the products NYX sends me so watch out for that video (should be up Sunday!). CLICK HERE FOR MY YOUTUBE CHANNEL. #TeamJordan
Even if I don’t get to the final 10 I am so thankful for this opportunity and to be recognised for my work has given me so much determination for my channel to grow. Moral of this story/blog post: always believe in yourself.
Also, I have to just put this on my blog, I am so amazed that Kylie Jenner reposted my photo onto her Instagram – like whhhhat?! Seriously, the only way is up 😉
