Tasked with creating looks based on the theme "The Magic of Makeup," Kalil and five other finalists showcased their work in a video challenge in front of host Patrick Starr, emcee Charisma Star, a panel of judges and a live audience of more than 4,000 at the Shrine Auditorium.
As the winner, Kalil will receive $50,000, a year's supply of NYX Professional Makeup and the chance at becoming a professional makeup artist. The five runner-ups will each receive $15,000 and a year's supply of NYX Professional Makeup.
Sarah El-Annan, AVP integrated marketing and PR at NYX, said, "The FACE Awards is an empowering, unique program which opens doors for an extremely talented community of artists. We are so proud of our hard-working and talented contestants and are grateful for the continued support from the beauty community over the past six years."
