FOTD: Monochromatic Contest Entry

Hi!

Today I have a fun FOTD for a contest held by insanely gorgeous Rubey who I wish owned her closet and thick ass hair. (Go back on FB haha). She's holding a contest inspired by Monochromatic, meaning using one color for your entire look. I choose to use all variations of pink! It reminds me of Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj and Lady Gaga type of kookiness.

Katy Perry - Fireworks


And may I add - I miss doing contests. The makeup blog community use to do them so often, now it's nothing but giveaways - which is fine, but I like a good competition and doing something creative involving what we love! Plus, you all know most of your followers just follow for giveaways and never come back again...'til a next giveaway haha. So I enjoy seeing the actual involvement - I dunno if I'm alone in thinking this? Enough rambling...








FACE - NARS Cadiz Matte Foundation, MAC Dollymix Blush
EYES - MAC Perky p/p, Coastal Scents Colleen's Dream p/m (lid), MAC Yogurt (lower lashline/inner eye corner), Sushi Flower (the lined crease/lower lash), Girlie (highlight) NYX Pink l/l (eyebrows), Ardell Lashes, L'Oreal Voluminous Mascara, Prestige Liquid Liner, Benefit High Brow (waterline)
LIPS - Real Colors Petal to the Metal (outer lip line), NYX Pink (mid lip gradient), Flirt! Gloss (inner lip)

  1. This looks AMAZING!! You did such a great job! I agree that it's all giveaways and no competitions in the blogging world...for me, I just think it's the fear that no one would enter whatever competition I came up with, I guess. lol

  2. You did such a good job! And I agree most people just follow your blog because you are having a giveaway and they never come to your page and leave comments or anything :( I just put a giveaway on my site and got a lot of new followers they only enterd in the giveaway and thats it, haven't left any comments or anything :( I did it because I want to make new friends across the world wo share the same intrest as me... but i dont think its going to happen. lol

  4. Nice look!

    I definitely agree about the contests. It was nice seeing bloggers do something fun & creative for a change instead of everyday looks or FOTD's. It also gives people an inspiration to try something that they wouldn't have thought of doing otherwise. I miss doing them as well!

  7. You did a great job Celly, I love the makeup. I remember I used to enjoy doing the contest just for the fun of it, even if there was no giveaway/prize involved - but these days I don't really wear or are into makeup much anymore, I only enjoy looking at it on other people, not so much wearing it.

    Your hair looks so pretty and long, didn't you just cut it a few months ago? It looks like it's getting really long!

  9. What a great contest idea! Love your entry, good luck :)

    Btw, get a pair of Mariels! I LOVEEEEE mine. The sizing was a bit off for me though. I'm normally a 6.5-7 and sized up to a 7.5 but maybe could have gone up to an 8.

    happy holidays celly!
