Miss Teenage Canada Makeup Provided by Modern Makeup

Modern Makeup is proud to announce we will be returning as the official makeup provider of the Miss Teenage Canada 2017 pageant!

Last year, team Modern Makeup had the pleasure of dolling up all 54 of Canada’s regional winners!

There are many more factors the judges take into account than just looks including charity fundraising and blogging to name a few.

Every year I have been blown away by the maturity and kindness of these young girls.

The delegates are required to fund raise for a charity of their choosing.

The winner will have many responsibilities once she is crowned, many of which revolve around local community events and fund raising events.

Last year’s winner Sami Pierre was a well deserved winner!

Passionate, intelligent and motivated to make a difference, Sammi has made Canada proud.

Heres a look at Sami’s “Most Photogenic” Photo Shoot.

Her makeup here was done by Modern Makeup team member Alexandra and hairstyling done by myslef, Jennifer Turner of Modern Makeup.

When getting Sami ready for this shoot I remember instantly being impressed with Samantha’s positive attitude and articulate nature.

MISS TEENAGE CANADA 2016

I’m sure you all are aware that Modern Makeup was a proud sponsor of the national teen model competition, Miss Teenage Canada 2016.

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.

As a result of a full day of activities the team was up bright and early on the first day to meet 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.

Also, 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.

Especially relevant is that the final day of the pageant took place at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre in Toronto.

It was another whirlwind of cosmetic craziness, but a rewarding night indeed.

In conclusion these teen models go through a full day of hair and makeup and rehearsals before the big show even starts!

Finally, the winner of the 2016 Miss Teenage Canada Pageant was teen model Samantha Pierre.

It was a hectic few days but the team managed to pull it off with patience and grace.

Furthermore, 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!

Modern Makeup Owner Places 2nd in National Competition

In August 2015 Modern Makeup I participated in a national competition in search of Canada’s next top makeup artist and am very proud to announce that I was awarded the runner-up position!

Contestants were judged over a three-week period by Sheriff Cosmetics on their work on models for both Top Model Search Canada and Miss Teenage Canada 2015.

The competition kicked off with over 80 models from all across Canada in the Top Model Search Canada pageant who were looking to get noticed by top modelling agencies from all over the globe. Models were judged on many different attributes including interview skills, photo shoots, runway and of course their overall look.

Check out some of the photos from behind the scenes from Top Model Search Canada 2015:

During the Top Model Search Canada pageant I provided makeup for both the runway and for the photo shoot portion of the competition. Here are a few of the photos I have seen in which I provided the makeup for! Enjoy!

Top Model Search Canada is a wonderful opportunity/experience for young models across the country who want to seriously get noticed. One thing that stood out to me amongst this group of girls was their kindness and their desire to succeed. I watched new friendships form that will last a lifetime and got to be a part of an unforgettable experience.

Just a few days after the Top Model Search Canada pageant came to a close I was back doing makeup for the Miss Teenage Canada 2015 pageant. This time, young representatives from all across Canada were in Toronto hoping to be crowned the next Miss Teenage Canada and move on to represent Canada in the Miss Teenage Universe pageant.

When you think of beauty pageants you may assume it’s all about the looks, but after being so closely involved and hearing all the girls’ stories, I would argue that being a contestant in a pageant like Miss Teenage Canada is one of the toughest and most rewarding experiences a young girl can be a part of.

These young women travelled far and wide, the majority of whom travelled alone without any family or friends and showed so much dedication and strength. They were put through rigorous rehearsals and had a full week of a schedule in which practically every second of their time was spoken for.

Check out some of the photos from the Miss Teenage Canada 2015 pageant:

I was very proud to have had the honour to participate in both of these incredible modelling pageants and to meet so many of the amazing young women who were competing. Coming home with second place is something I feel very proud to have accomplished. When I first entered the competition, I thought it would be a great experience and that’s all I was really looking for out of it, was the experience. As the competition got well underway I started to realize that I was one of the most talented artists in the competition and that I may have a chance at doing quite well. The realization alone was rewarding enough for me and although I did not come first, second will do just fine! I still feel like a winner just by having this wonderful opportunity to participate in two fantastic Canadian events.
