Your photo can be edited slightly. Removing blemishes and adjusting lighting is allowed, but over editing is not accepted.

You or your model can be the only one in the photo. If you are using a model, make sure to have permission and give me their name.

When sending your images, please tell me your name. I will add your image with your name so that I can contact you if you win!

You can enter multiple times, however each entry must be different. No similar images.

The contest runs from Monday December 3rd to Friday January 4th. Winners will be announced Monday January 7th. In the event of a tie, an additional 24 hours will be added until the tie is broken.

Alright, it's that time again. I desperately need your help! I'm a finalist in Lime Crime's Snow White Makeup Contest www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbi… and I need your votes! I'm pretty far behind in votes, but if you guys could help me by "liking" the photo on facebook, I would be so so so thankful!

As for the last contest I was in with Makeupbee... you guys were able to bring me back up to the top 3, but sadly OCC didn't pick my look. But seriously, I'm so thankful that you guys were awesome enough to help me out! Remember, if you guys need help with contests, just let me know, I can help you guys too! (As long as you're not against me! Haha!)

THANKS GUYS! :love:

I've currently dropped to 7th place for the Makeupbee Lip contest! www.makeupbee.com/look.php?loo… I need your help to keep me in the top 10! The top 10 will then be narrowed down to 3 finalists by OCC. All you have to do is either connect your facebook to it and hit the "luv" which is the heart on the left side of the picture. Or you can join the site and do the same! The site is wonderful and there are so many amazing designs up there! I will love you forever for any votes you guys can give me! Thanks so much for helping me get this far!

*edit* Oh my god! You guys have pushed me up to 3rd! I don't even know how to thank you all! Keep going! Don't stop! :la:
