Vote for Janna below:
In my photo I used a wide range of makeup brands. My key products that I used was MAC primer, MAC eye-shadow, Glittery eye-shadows from Syria, Liquid Revlon Color stay eyeliner (black), Victoria Secret’s blue glitter eyeliner, MAC Zoom Blast mascara & last but not least Maybaliene Mineral Blush . This make up look was inspired from the Christian Dior Fall 2011 Runway show because of all the beautiful blues, violets, and purples. I chose more of an Arabian look of makeup because I love the way this look shapes the eye. Since the clothing line was filled with dark, deep colors I decided to throw in some lighter shades to make the eyes pop. Nothing is more beautiful then bright eyes.

This pic also has a flawless complextion, but lighter lips, and the colors are light and simple with dramatic eyeliner. I wanted the eyes to be the focus of the picture especially the liner. I was inspired by Dior runways, which usually have a lot of focus on the lashes or intersting eyeliner patterns. I was also inspired by sultry fall looks for this look because of the white shimmer and slight pale-ness.-Coastal Scents 88 matte palette-Wet n Wild cream shadow-canyon sand

Vote for Lisa below:
was inspired by celebrity make-up artist Ashunta Sheriff. More specifically, I loved her work at the Catherine Malandrino show. While many shows aim for over the top, I tend to be more attracted to the timeless beauties in Fashion – isn’t that in a way the most over the top? This is exactly what I think of when I look at her work. How gorgeous is this masterpiece? (Photo 1)In order to accomplish such a look, I used my Bare Escentuals foundation and illumination mineral veil, NARS Orgasm blush, CoverGirl Outlast Lip Shine in Bordeaux, and Mally Volumizing Mascara.
