Girl Meets Brush is a make-up brand that offers a professional brush range and an MUA community as well as an online academy for aspiring make-up artists.

Throughout 2020, the company’s online academy continued to support its MUAs, and held its inaugural MUA of The Year Awards. The competing artists completed several make-up challenges to demonstrate a range of skills, from editorial make-up, avant garde, vintage and special effects (SFX), to bridal and glam looks.

The winners were chosen based on the range of skills demonstrated across the board, with a talented panel of guest judges making the final decision.

The Girl Meets Brush MUA of The Year winners are:

First Place: Amy Imogen Jeffries

Second Place: Kerry Betteridge

Joint Third Place: Caroline Edwards and Donna Conway

In addition to this, Girl Meets Brush chose some of the outstanding work submitted throughout the year in its Signature Make-Up Course to include in a publication. With a brief of “clean beauty”, MUAs were asked to produce beautiful, natural make-up that looks stunnning on camera. Faye Cumberbatch’s look was chosen as the standout design.
