The Results Are In...


LCD Text Generator at TextSpace.net


Hey Everyone!
The results are in! After very careful consideration I've come up with not 5, but 8 contest winners! The folks for Crest PR were nice enough to accomodate the additional winners, so I'm thrilled that 8 people will get to try out Crest Whitestrips Advanced Seal! Woohoo!

In addition, I'm thrilled that people will now have so many ideas for their prom makeup as they look through the video responses. While I picked 8 winners- there were so many fantastic submissions. I really don't like to set up a lot of rules in terms of makeup... I follow the philosophy that there aren't concrete right and wrongs- but rather it's about creativity and what works for the individual. So the entries I chose as "winners" were those that appealed to me in overall effect. I didn't want to set up a strict set of rules for everyone to follow- you'll notice some videos take you step-by-step, some are more descriptive, etc. I judged on the finished look!


What I considered while judging the entries...
-The finished look and overall effect
-Is the look appropriate for the prom-going age group?
-Would I have wanted to do this look for my own prom? (years ago haha)
-Overall technique and aesthetic appeal

What I DID NOT consider while judging the entries...
-Professional quality of photos
-Editing ability
-Kind comments toward me and my channel
-How cheap/expensive the products were that were used
-Presentation of the look (could be tutorial style, walking thru the products- as long as I know what you used and you show the finished look, it's ok)
