Happy Friday loves!

I’m sure you all are aware that Modern Makeup was a proud sponsor of Miss Teenage Canada 2016, and I’m here to give you a bit of a behind the scenes of all the hard work and perfection that our artists displayed throughout the pageant.

Our team was up bright and early  on the first day to meet up at the Mississauga Holiday Inn Dixon Road on the top floor to do some set up and wait for our contestants to file through. Personally, I have never seen so many makeup palettes, hair extensions and so many bottles of hairspray in one place before. However, the room was filled with so much energy, talent and creativity that regardless of the fact that we had 54 models who needed to get their hair and makeup done before 4 o’clock, we managed to make it happen with only a short pizza break.

Below are some snippets of the days progress.

These girls ranged form ages 14 to 18 and came from all over their country with their own unique story in their own beautiful way, and competed for the Miss Teenage Canada title. It was mind blowing to see the confidence that was portrayed by each young lady and the way they attempted to build each other up during an intense time like this.

Pageant day took place at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre at the Exhibition. Artists were each allotted a room underneath the stage where they got their girls prepped for their big night. It was another whirlwind of cosmetic craziness, but a rewarding night indeed.

The winner of the 2016 Miss Teenage Canada Pageant was Samantha

It was a hectic few days but the team managed to pull it off with patience and grace. I know this event would have not been possible without the wonderful artists who were part of #teammodernmakeup and I would like to take a moment to recognize some of our incredible artists!
