Contest Mania!

So, a friend has recently turned me on to makeup contests! They're fun and you can really branch out of your comfort zone! I'm thinking about entering some of them (I may make a few posts about them, as well, if I get gutsy! haha) So where do I find makeup contests? I find all mine on facebook. Look around (especially indie makeup pages) and you will find TONS with all sorts of different themes! Here are some to get you started:

Arabic Beauty contest on Beautiful Expressions by Ceny - ends March 10. There are two categories, newbie and expert; this is a judged contest.

Spring Into Makeup Contest on Star Wave Creations - ends March 15. Only open to US residents age 18+ with two categories, newbie and expert; this is a judged contest.

St. Patty's Day Contest on Lucky 107 - ends March 16. This is a judged contest.

Disney Princess 100 likes Contest on Lipgloss and Flipflops - ends March 23. Open to US residents only.

Go Big or Go Home contest on Abigail's Boutique Designs - ends March 25. This is a full-look contest, not just make-up, with two categories, newbie and advanced; this is a judged contest.

Glitz & Glamour theme 10K Contest on MakeupbyLeahh - ends March 25. Open internationally, full-face makeup look required; this is a judged contest.

Contest inspired by a Charity close to your heart on Make-up by Tab - ends March 25. Open to US residents only with two categories, newbie and pro; this is a judged contest.

Jeffree and Kim Contest on Fake Eyelashez - ends March 31. Must recreate either a Jeffree Star look or Kim K look; this is a judged contest.

Beautiful Butterfly Makeup Contest on Makeup Mama - ends April 4th. Open internationally, age 18+ or with parental permission with two categories, newbie and expert; this appears to be a judged contest.

That should be enough to get you started! PLEASE be sure to read the rules VERY carefully on each and every contest, some require you to follow them on twitter or youtube or their blogs, and I believe they ALL require you to "like" their page and the pages of any/all sponsors. More than anything, HAVE FUN! And feel free to share any contest looks you do on my facebook page. Do you know of any other contests right now? Are YOU holding a contest right now!? Please share! Here or on my facebook page!
