The winner of the sweepstakes received travel and accommodations for two to New York for an A-List makeover with celebrity makeup artist and LUMIFY eye drops brand ambassador, Vincent Oquendo, amongst other prizes.

To support the Challenge, Bausch + Lomb also held a sampling tour that ran through ChicagoDallasLos Angeles and New York during the month of August. The day-long pop-up events at each location featured a LUMIFY branded tiny home that offered visitors refreshments and mini masterclass sessions taught by prominent local makeup artists. Visitors could also record their TikTok #LUMIFYEyeDance challenge videos at a selfie station.
