The NYX Face Awards is an international competition with participation by makeup artists from all over the world in presenting their best work to a global audience. There are regional contests for those from a certain area. The American version is held in New York.
Each year the most talented makeup and body-painting artists compete for recognition of their skills and to advance their careers. The entry for 2016 from Mirjana Milošević is breathtaking. She transforms herself into a mysterious wooden doll that is so realistic as to be almost a bit terrifying.
