I couldn’t rank the 2nd to 4th place winners in any specific order; it was too hard because they all stood out for different reasons. This was not a contest of pure skills!
A great makeup look is good (and there were lots of incredible looks), but for this contest the overall effort, humor, and thought behind the submission went a long way, and I felt these 4 winners managed to demonstrate that, even if the looks weren’t always complex.
Congrats guys, and do let me know your full shipping details soon (Extending to 22nd since I took a day to announce the winners) or I’ll have to pick the other shortlisted entries on my list!
If you didn’t win a prize this round, please don’t be too disappointed! There were tons of great posts and I had so much trouble picking out 4 that I actually had to enlist help to think through it. (There’ll be more contests and giveaways coming up!)
IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER
C: This was too, too cute. And very creative and unexpected. Andronicco wins Set C: Warm Lips!
Excerpt: “… I consider my personal makeup style to be “evil queen.” As in, yes, I actively try to make myself look like a Disney villain. Because, come on! These women are fabulous!”
c: I love how we could get a nice climpse of her personality and humor in her post, and the reasoning behind the themed look she photographed for this contest. She won Item B, Little Humming Book 2!
Excerpt: “… Am I just bad at make up? Do I lack inspiration? Maybe. But at least I can pull off this look, and I think I look good. No Dita, sure, but it’s definitely me.”
C: Last but not least, I liked this post because of the thought and the effort taken to not just pull together images of her makeup journey, but to also detail the story behind it. You won the “Soft Lips” Set, D!
