YouTube CONTEST - Celebrity Lookalike Makeover!

I wanted to post a lovely little blog-ette to accompany my new contest, so that you can all find the rules and extra details written down. If you haven’t yet seen my contest video, here’s a brief overview of what it’s all about!

I used to be an Avril Lavigne lookalike (years ago now!) so have always loved the idea of ‘celebrity lookalike makeovers’ – so that’s what I’m doing for my contest! I love the thought that you can transform yourself into someone else, even if its just for an hour or so, by using things like make up, hairstyling and clothing.

So, on with the details of the contest!

What Do I Have to Do?:

Using make up, hair styling/wig/other hairy methods and clothing (and anything else you can think of!) transform yourself into a lookalike of one of your favourite celebrities! The contest will be judged on how much you look like the celebrity after the makeover.

How to Enter:

You can enter in one of two ways. You can either post a video response to my original contest video (see the link above!) and the video can include you talking, or photos, or both! Alternatively, you can enter on Twitter by tweeting me a picture. Make sure you include your YouTube username and the celebrity you’re impersonating in your tweet.


The fabulous Anna, owner of the delicious boutique website Anna Lou of London is kindly sponsoring the contest! There will be 3 winners; 1st place will win a £30 voucher for the Anna Lou of London website, 2nd place a £20 voucher and 3rd place a £10 voucher.


  1. You must be a subscriber to my YouTube channel to enter!
  2. If you enter by Twitter, you must be a follower and a subscriber.
  3. The video/photo must be of you and you must have done the makeover
  4. You must be 16 years old or have your parent’s permission

Extra Info:

The contest is open internationally!
It doesn’t matter if you’re a girl or a guy, you can still enter.

The DEADLINE is: Wednesday 16th March at Midnight UK TIME!

I’m so excited to see your entries, and good luck!

Stay creative,

Chyaz xox

  2. Hi Chyaz. :)

    I'd love to enter your contest. I only have one question.
    Does it have to be one of those very well known celebrities? As in.. would Emilie Autumn count as celebrity too?

    Love & Cupcakes

  3. It can be anyone you like that is known :) Emilie counts for sure! Looking forward to your entry :D xx

  4. Looks like a great and creative contest, good luck to everyone who will enter! :)

    By the way instead of a link, you can also include the video itself in your blog post if you want to, you just copy and paste the whole code of your video in your blog post and then it's done :D In case you would like to do that at least :)

  5. ^ Thanks for much Lisa! I've managed to fix it now :) xx
