Challenge: Warrior Women

We want to see YOU transform into a “Warrior Woman!” Challenge yourself by recreating or creating your own straight-from-scratch look that fits the theme “Warrior Women.” Submit your entry (or entries!) by May 24th to be included in this makeup challenge. Please submit all entries to [email protected]! :)

Submission Guidelines

  • You do NOT have to use MAC products. You can use any and all makeup, brands, products, etc. that you wish to achieve your look.
  • Minimum of one photo required (either close-up or full-face); maximum of five photos will be used (but feel free to send more over if you want us to pick and choose)
  • Photos must be a minimum of 500px wide and should reflect color accuracy and little to no blurriness
  • Include a text description of the products used to achieve the look

Photo-taking Tips

  • Find a simple background, like a solid color wall
  • Take more photos rather than less — you can always delete the ones that didn’t work
    out
  • Macro mode for close-up photography is key
  • Try layering a tissue over your flash if photos are overexposed
  • Stand near a window for softer, more flattering light
  • Use a tripod to keep photos sharp if your camera has shutterlag

I’m really eager to see your entries! So start getting fierce and send those babies in :)  Check out these face charts for inspiration or pick one to recreate! Continue reading →
