“Dreaming of Summer” Challenge Winners!
We love every makeup challenge we’ve had, but this one has got to be our favorite so far. The vibrant looks you shared fast-forwarded us past all the snow, straight into summertime. There were so many stunning submissions that we were pretty relieved to give our makeup expert judge, Mykie (Glamandgore.com|Instagram|Youtube), the final say on the winners. Unsurprisingly, she had a really tough time too, and asked to add an extra winner:
“It was really difficult to choose just 5 (as you can see, since I included 6, haha) because they were all really beautifully done! I made my decisions based on a few different factors: the artist’s concept in relation to the theme of ‘Dreaming of Summer’, it’s technical execution, and it’s uniqueness.”
Without further ado, here are the winners, and comments by Mykie!
“Bria’s look reminds me of some of my favorite parts of summer. That super bright blue reminds me of swimming pools, and lightning from summer thunderstorms. The yellow and black actually reminds me of big summer action blockbusters, and bumblebees. I think it was a bold combination to put together that turned out to be really interesting, and unique.”
“Jessica’s look is the perfect combination of both a subtle and bold summer look. The eyes and cheeks are kept glowy and natural but the bold lip makes the look really fun. I love the mix of the two, and it was executed really well.”
“I think Tyler has perfectly executed a the beachy, natural, glowy summer look. It could be worn by anyone for any summer activity. It looks effortless, even though we all know good natural makeup can take quite a bit of effort to pull off! He does it like a true pro.”
“Sandra’s look is straight up bold, and a perfect summer inspired look. The warm summer colors are complimented well between the lips and the eyes, and the blending is perfection. The yellow glitter is a really nice added touch to bring the look to the next level. It’s like she’s crying sunshine. I know that’s weird to say but I’m just callin’ it like I see it. Basically, it’s perfect for the theme.”
“Tuba_cee ‘s lip art really caught my eye because of how different it was. The blend of colors are very summer citrus-y and it’s originality is extremely refreshing. Now I want a lemonade.”
“Medeai has a beautiful combo of bold bright color and glowing skin. I liked that she picked a hot pink/magenta, compared to some of the other common colors being chosen, and the makeup overall is on point.”
Congratulations to our winners!! Thank you for everyone who created and shared their unique looks, and to Mykie for being such an amazing judge! Don’t forget to add your vote in the poll to help choose our next challenge theme. ❤
