NYX Cosmetics brought together 6 young talented up-and-coming beauty vloggers to compete for the title of National Beauty Vlogger of the Year. Not only does the winner receive $25,000 in cash, but she also will experience an opportunity of a lifetime to help propel her career in beauty.
The finalists completed a look using NYX cosmetics in front of a live audience on August 24, 2013, while Emcees P'Trique and Amy Paffrath, along with host Justin Howard pumped up and entertained the audience. Judges Toni K., Molly Sloat, Susan Yara, William Lemon and Natalie Alcala certainly had their work cut out for them with the task of choosing the winner. It was incredible to see so much talent onstage - and some of the contestants are still in high school! The audience brought a huge amount of love and support for the contestants. From boyfriends to parents to friends, it was clear that there were many very proud supporters rooting the finalists on.
