Taking part in les Victoires du Regard means competing in the world’s largest eyelash extension competition.
Separated into several stages and levels, this Championship will crown the next four World Champions in eyelash extensions, after several rounds of competition.
Candidates are first asked to enter one or more of the four main categories of the Eyelash Extension World Championship. Each entrant will be evaluated by a jury composed of members chosen amongst the most eminent personalities of the beauty world. Participating entrants may also choose to enter the Championship’s online category, the LikeMyLash photo contest, which is judged by the public on Les Victoires du Regard Facebook page.
The four main categories of the Championship are:
The online category is:
All participants in the Eyelash Extension World Championship must go through two crucial steps regardless of the category(ies) that they enter: the Qualification Round and the Grand Final.
Starting February 9, 2019, a selection committee appointed by the Championship’s management will choose 40 finalists, i.e. five finalists for each of the four main categories and 20 for the LikeMyLash photo competition by analyzing (in closed session) all the photos and files submitted by the entrants between November 1, 2018 and February 8, 2019.
The first and last names of the 20 finalists in the four main categories will be announced on the Victoires du Regard Facebook page on March 4, 2019.
For the LikeMyLash photo competition, only the 20 finalists chosen in this category will be contacted by email during the week of February 11, 2019.
Under no circumstances will the registration form be returned to participants.
The 20 finalists in the four main categories will be invited to the International Congress of Aesthetics and Spa for the final stage of the Eyelash Extension World Championship. In front of an audience, finalists will have to complete an eyelash extension set, according to their respective category, on a model that will be assigned to them at random (through a draw) on-site, a few minutes before the competition begins.
The organization is responsible for finding models with eyelashes that are suitable for extensions for each of the 20 finalists.
Each finalist will be given:
* Models will be assigned to finalists completely at random therefore if a costume is needed, said costume must be made or altered so that it can fit anyone, regardless of their size and height.
In order to remain as objective as possible, all judges with the exception of one, will be seated in a closed room, without any access to social media throughout the competition period. It is only after the time allotted for eyelash extension that the jury, composed of internationally renowned members in the eyelash extension industry, will be permitted on the competition floor so they can evaluate the work completed by the 20 finalists.
Only one judge will be on the competition floor to assess the work of the finalists as it is performed, to ensure that the participants work in accordance with industry hygiene standards.
At the end of the application period, the organization will announce the 4 winners of the Eyelash Extension World Championship on the main stage of the International Congress of Aesthetics and Spa.
The championship jury for the Eyelash Extension World Championship will be comprised of members chosen from among the most prominent individuals in the world of international beauty. The jury members are responsible for selecting and rewarding the most deserving participants and have complete discretion in the selection of winners and awarding of prizes at the championship’s grand finale.
The jury’s decisions are final and cannot be appealed.

Participants may choose to register for one or more categories of the Eyelash Extension World Championship without any restrictions.
A candidate may also register several times in the same category if she wishes (with 2 different applications, but in the same category, for example). However, if the participant ranks as a finalist with one of her applications (among the 5 best technicians), her other entries will be automatically removed from the final rankings (her name will therefore appear only in the highest possible standing).
The files of candidates will be evaluated according to several criteria. To read the detailed information about each category, please see the selection criteria page, under the Championship tab.
In addition to a luxurious stay in the City of Lights and the many surprises and gifts that will be given to the 20 finalists during their stay in Paris, each year les Victoires du Regard will also crown four (4) new eyelash extension WORLD CHAMPIONS, one prizewinner per main category during the International Congress of Aesthetics and Spa.
Each of these prizewinners will be presented with prizes of great value in addition to an official certificate stating their world ranking: a marketing tool of significant value! You can find more details about prizes here.
