LOS ANGELES, Oct. 1 -- Lifetime's new reality competition series, "Blush: The Search for the Next Great Make-Up Artist," will premiere Tuesday, November 11, 10:00-11:00 PM ET/PT, on Lifetime Television. In the hour-long, six-episode series, contestants from around the country will compete for a contract as a professional artist with Max Factor, a cash prize of $100,000 and the opportunity to be the make-up artist for an upcoming In Style photo shoot.

Emmy(R) Award-winning actress Vanessa Marcil has been named host of show. In Style's internationally recognized fashion director Hal Rubenstein and industry make-up artist and author Joanna Schlip will serve as judges. Famed make-up artist Charlie Green will act as a mentor guiding the contestants through their challenges and offering encouragement, advice and insight.

In each episode of "Blush: The Search for the Next Great Make-Up Artist," the contestants, all living under one roof in Los Angeles, compete in two different make-up competitions, designed to test the skills and personality traits - including compassion and confidence - necessary for success in the field. Following the second challenge, one contestant will be eliminated.

A native of Palm Desert, California, Vanessa Marcil began acting in theatre at a very young age and continues to do so today. She made her television debut on the daytime drama "General Hospital" and won a Daytime Emmy(R) for her work on the series. Marcil's additional television credits include a series regular role on "Las Vegas" and guest-starring roles on "Lipstick Jungle," "Spin City," "Crossing Jordan," "High Incident" and "NYPD Blue." Her feature film credits include "The Rock," "The Space Between Us" and "Nice Guys Sleep Alone."

Fashion Director, Hal Rubenstein, has been with In Style from its beginning 14 years ago. In addition to creating the signature "The Look," the section that helped establish the identity of the magazine, and the identity of all 14 international editions, he also helped create the highly informative, yet down to earth "voice" of the magazine, known for a confidence-building tone that assures readers that "you can do this." Hal is also a leading authority on red carpet glamour, making frequent television appearances on top rated national morning and entertainment shows. Prior to joining In Style, he was Men's Style Editor of the New York Times Magazine. Hal was born in New York and has never seen any reason to live anywhere else.

Professional make-up artist Joanna Schlip has worked with some of the most celebrated people in the entertainment industry. Her work has graced the covers of the most prestigious magazines worldwide. In addition, she contributes her artistic skill set to cutting edge editorials, runways, and fashion advertising from coast to coast. She has made over forty television appearances and trained artistry teams for cosmetic giants. She is also a three-time keynote speaker at the IMATS (http://www.makeupartistshow.com), a beauty author, an international spokesperson and world-wide beauty expert. Joanna's extraordinary work ethic and genuine personality have afforded her an amazing clientele including Eva Longoria, Scarlett Johansson, Ellen Pompeo, Laura Linney, Hilary Duff, Sheryl Crow and Jessica Simpson. In September 2006, Joanna launched her first book, Glamour Gurlz: The Ultimate Step-by-Step Guide to Great Make-up and Gurl Smarts (Random House) (http://www.glamourgurlzbook.com).

Charlie Green is a renowned make-up artist who has worked with such celebrities as Naomi Campbell, Jewel, Tyra Banks, Kelly Clarkson and Elizabeth Hurley, just to name a few. In addition, she has done the make-up for celebrities who have appeared on the cover of many national magazines, including Vogue, Elle and GQ. Green is also the primary make-up artist for Victoria's Secret.

"Blush: The Search for the Next Great Make-up Artist" is co-produced by IMG Entertainment ("Make Me a Supermodel," "Secret Diaries of a Call Girl") and connectivetissueTM, the branded entertainment division within MediaVest, for Lifetime Television.
