In Sunday’s premiere episode, Canada’s Best Beauty Talent host Coco Rocha introduces the 12 promising young contestants who, after a nationwide search, now step into the spotlight to vie for the title of Canada’s Best Beauty Talent – six makeup artists and six hair artists who are all uniquely talented and eager to win! Their first challenge: hair and makeup artists will team up into pairs and each make a fabulous first impression by styling their fellow competitors. The panel of expert judges will look at the technique, team work, inimitable creativity and distinctive flair each of the artists brings to the competition. And after lots of pressure, excitement and a few surprises, the judges will select one favourite look – and one pair of artists will bid farewell to the competition on Monday night’s show.

The talented contestants will update the looks for 2012, working under the watchful eye of two of Canada’s top beauty experts: L’Oréal Paris Artists Eddie Malter and Eric Del Monaco.

Host Coco Rocha introduces this week’s challenge: the dream of every beauty artist - to style a bride for her walk down the aisle. Each bride is as unique as her gown, and so the challenge this week for the contestants is to create the perfect look to complement not only the bride, but also her dress. L’Oréal artistic director Anna Pacitto, Lancôme official makeup artist Lora Spiga and Chatelaine beauty and fashion editor Catherine Franklin join the judging panel for this week’s episode. With only one hour to complete the ideal bridal look for four brides, which artists will stand up to the challenge - and which will be sent packing?
