Lash Battle 2017 can only be described as a resounding success! With so many presents, goody bags, certificates and trophies up for grabs, the long-awaited awards ceremony was the perfect way to sum up a fantastic two day event.
Over the two days, we saw some incredible work from lash artists from all over the world, some of whom had travelled all the way from Australia, Taiwan and China! The exceptional standard of work this year meant that our judges had to make some even difficult decisions than in previous years - Sylvia Liu, our judge from Lash Heaven said of the Dramatic Volume category 'usually I have two or three favourites when I'm deciding who to give my special prize to, this year I had six favourites!' In more than one category, the first and second places were separated by just one point!
All of our wonderful judges and sponsors brought along gifts and goody bags to give to winners, which we are so grateful for! Our winners were all surprised by just how many presents they were receiving when they came to collect their award, and most needed help or a second trip to get their gifts back to their seat.
The photo above show just a fraction of the gifts that were given to our winners, we also had some amazing prizes from Glamcor which we had to put under the table so that we still had room to present the awards!
Special thanks go to our Judges - Petr Lhotsky, Freja Hermann Holtz, Frankie Widdows, Lisa Hillen, Louise Tierney, Rikke Udengaard, Nadia Poliszczuk, Kristin Von Kietzell, Hoa Thi Duong, Irina Levchuk, Set Mossavi, Katarzyna Borkowska, Jane Ericsson, Darja Strilestskaja, Elisabeth Bexter, Miranda Tarpey, Sylvia Liu and of course, the amazing Hanna Putjato - for their generosity and their time in coming to visit us and help out with Lash Battle 2017 - we couldn't have done it without you!
Further thanks goes to our sponsors, who also sent to amazing gifts for us to reward our winners with!
