Official Rules here
Only six lucky winners will be selected in August 2011 James Gager, MAC Cosmetics’ creative director. “They will then be flown to New York City where they will be made over by a professional makeup artist and star in a worldwide campaign photographed by an award-winning fashion and celebrity photographer.”
“MAC Me Over! is a true celebration of MAC’s credo – All Ages, All Races, All Sexes,” says Gager, who will be overseeing the judging next year. “The program allows us to honor our fans by celebrating their individual personality and style.” United Colors of Benetton have also launched an online casting call all over the Globe last Spring and selected 20 faces for their A/W 2010 Collection. MAC Me Over winners will have their photos strewn at MAC Cosmetics stores and counters worldwide. How exciting yet sad for us here in the Third World Country! We would love to have that chance to fly to New York and get photographed for their Fall campaign. Wouldn’t MAC have that huge budget just like Benetton?
