Contest: Couture Maquillage *Updated Rules

Okay, so I was thinking long and hard about something new...
I had great suggestions (thanks!) and thought about something that will garner many different inspired images.

Couture Maquillage
Haute Couture Makeup

Info:
Haute Couture is a French phrase meaning High Fashion.
This is were creativity sets in!
I want some crazy looks - you can even dress the part to add more feel to it, but makeup will be the only thing judged! Push the limit, try your best and definitely have fun doing it.


Google is your best friend when looking for inspiration photos.
Youtube is also a great way to go - I'd recommend these people:
WETPAINTmakeupartist
Petrilude
Makeupartistamateur


How To Enter:
You MUST be a follower to enter.
(If you can't follow, send me an email or comment saying you can't. You can still enter.)

2 photos need to be submitted.
1 full face - the other is your choice.
Additional images can be added.

You have 2 choices in entering submissions:
Post it on your blog and send me a notice it's up
or send me an e-mail at cellyannabelle@hotmail.com.

If you're recreating an image or video - send me/post the inspiration photo or video along with your entries (not required).

Photoshopping Rule:
I personally am not a huge fan on photo-shopping makeup looks.
I see it too often and think it's an unfair advantage.
*BUT... your photo entry, one can have the max of skin smoothing retouch only!
(I'mma be generous, LOL)

Winners:
I will choose the few finalist and from then on...
the winner will be choosen by unbiased judges
(friends, family).
Also not a fan or voting polls or random picks, too much cheating going on. Ahem.
I may or may not choose a 2nd-place winner.
Depends on how many prize items I get.
I'm allowing UK & Canadian entrants now! :]

Deadline:
Plenty of time for everybody -
April 10th, 2009 - 12pm Pacific Time.

Prizes:

Few items I got.
I'll prolly stick a random dildo in there for the hell of it... who knows.
Haha. Jay Kay.


Have fun - I can't wait to see the entries!
Later,
Locas ;]

  5. what an awesome concept! and thanks for saying only the face will be judged, because honestly, i don't own much to accessorize so i always feel i'm at a disadvantage. hopefully i find an inspiration soon =)

  7. KC, I'mma see how my little budget goes for Canadian shipping.
    I could do UK because I have stamps for that shipping but I'll see. No promises yet.

    Rai, dude! Just try it - I'm all for creativity but it doesn't have to be completely perfect or anything. I'm not judging on perfection ;]

    Everyone else who wants to participate, good luck! Thanks and can't wait to see the entries.
