So, contests aren’t typically my thing. I mean, I love the rush of adrenaline and the exhilaration that comes with the heat of the moment or with the anticipation of hearing the final results, but at the same time, I have a very competitive nature and can sometimes be a sore loser. For this reason (amongst a few others), I don’t typically enter contests.
This time, however, I made an exception. I am huge into reading about the zodiac and have a special love for my sun sign, and when I watched debstan1′s video about her contest, I got so excited that I decided to enter it. Had it not been for the fact that she had her makeup all done, I probably wouldn’t have watched the video (whenever a video title or anything has that magic “C” word in it, I don’t tend to watch them). Her makeup caught my eye (it freakin’ kicked ass!!) so you guys should definitely check out her videos!
Anyhoo, here’s my entry for the contest. Hope you guys like it! I took the liberty of recording myself applying the makeup (no talking though) so there will be a video (with a voice over). Oh yeah… a side note. When I started out doing the makeup, I wasn’t trying to go for a symmetrical look, but as I progressed, it evolved and eventually came to be somewhat symmetrical. lol.
