More great entries to this month’s challenge!   It’s amazing how each person takes on the theme.

Check out their looks!


JERLAINE is a twenty-eight year old “paper pusher” from Singapore who dreams of becoming a makeup artist, makeover guru, and maybe even a millionaire. She also has a makeup blog.

INSPIRATION: “I was feeling rather angsty that day so I decided to go with an ultra strong look, hence the bouffant and all black ensemble. I did feel very confident when I stepped out of the house, almost like Catwoman!” — Jerlaine

EYES: She used Urban Decay Primer Potion, NYX Black Bean Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencil, Red Earth MS051 Metallic Eyeshadow, MAC Young Punk Mineralized Eyeshadow, Urban Decay Ransom Eyeshadow, Benefit Towne Car Creaseless Cream Shadow, Silkygirl Pure Purple Funky Eyelights Pencil, and Urban Decay Zero 24/7 Liner.

KARINA is from Vienna, Austria, and she writes a German Beauty Blog and loves MAC and other high-end brands.

INSPIRATION: “My inspiration for this look was the Leopard Luxe promo picture from MAC Fabulous Felines.” — Karina

Dolce Aria

DOLCE ARIA is a twenty-three year old makeup lover from the Pacific Northwest. She writes a beauty blog and came to love makeup through the performing arts (dance), acrobatics, photogrpah, and normal art media.

INSPIRATION: “My inspiration came partially from the colors we think of when we think of the big cats, and partially from the contrasts in the fur patterning. It’s not terribly experimental, but it is still dramatic enough to be worn for a night out. And I love these colors for fall.” — Dolce Aria

EYES: She used Urban Decay Primer Potion, Fyrinnae STFU, Cargo Dare to Play Palette, MAC Vanilla Eyeshadow, Bare Escentuals Buxom Mascara, Urban Decay Bourbon 24/7 Liner, Urban Decay Demolition Ink for Eyes.

CJ lives in Copenhagen, Denmark. She’s love makeup since her mom gave her an old YSL Faux Cils Mascara!  She works as an office manager at a design agency.

INSPIRATION: “The inspiration of my look came from my love for leopard print! I’ve seen a few tutorials on youtube for doing leopard print on the eyelids but since I’m Asian and rocking the monolid, that doesn’t really work for me. Then I’ve loved Adam Lambert’s tour make-up where he’s done that stribe on the side of his face with glitter and rhinestones, and well, there you go.” — CJ

All of these looks are beautiful! I have to say though, I was especially captivated by Karina. Normally, I would never consider orange eyeshadow but she makes it look so good! I’m really impressed 🙂
