If you love colour, follow all the latest makeup trends and want to turn your passion into a career, grab your makeup brush! Entries for the #SorbetMUASearch 2020 are officially open. The Sorbet Makeup Artist Search 2020 aims to find 10 aspiring makeup artists who have the talent and passion, but haven’t had the opportunity of a formal qualification.

“When we launched Sorbet Makeup in March 2018, we packed our makeup formulations with “Do Good” benefits for the skin. We’re excited to expand this philosophy to our first ever makeup artist search and are truly excited to be inspired by the huge talent in South Africa," says Jamie Lane, head of Merchandise & Marketing at Clicks Group.

“The Sorbet brand has always been centred around the idea of community upliftment,” explains Sapna Naran, Group Marketing Manager at Sorbet.  “As a brand, we want to do more than ‘just sell makeup’, we want to empower people with the skills to earn a living doing what they love."

Choosing the top 10 winners is not going to be an easy task, says Naran but the Sorbet and Clicks team, together with the judges know exactly what they are looking for. "We want people who are committed, passionate and bubbly (like Sorbet!). You need to be authentic and show us why you love what you do. As a makeup artist, it’s important to be able to connect with people on all sorts of levels, to communicate with them and make them feel comfortable. We'll also be judging on application, technique, use of colour and overall presentation,” she says.
