Win NARS Cosmetics!
by Alex LaMarsh (alexandrial)
at February 1st, 2007 (12:42 pm)

Here is the info for the February contest at AMA!

 

First and formost we would like to thank our February Sponsor!
  

An iconoclastic philosophy, Nars believes there are no rules when it comes to beauty; whatever makes you look and feel good is right. We could not agree more!


The theme for February is Best Black & White Photography Makeup. Think Hurrell glamour shots, raw character photos, or artsy dramatic, just be creative! Submit your skills and original ideas in either a nice tight headshot or shoulders and head. Remember no nudity please. Be sure to read the rules for the dimension guidelines. As always this theme is yours to run with, interpret it how you want. Most importantly, have fun!

READ THE RULES AND TIPS FOR WINNING BEFORE ENTERING THE CONTEST!

- Post your entry as a reply to the February Contest thread HERE . Any entries not listed in this thread will be deleted and not qualify.

- Post photos no smaller then 300 pixels (4 inches).

- The contest thread is for entries only; any comments about the entries will be deleted.

I made a bunch of changes to AllMakeupArtists.com today & am really excited about it.

There is now a gallery so you can upload photos of your work & receive comments about it. I also added a BabbleFish translator so you can read the site in whatever language you wish! The layout is a bit different & hopefully easier to navigate. There are also a bunch of small changes that you will have to check out for yourself on the site!

Go get some beauty talk!
