BeautyStat NYC New York Color Sponsored Holiday Competition 2011

We’ve held other makeup competitions before, and had a terrific response. So, a big thanks to you, dear readers, for never disappointing us when it comes to your beauty tips and tricks.

Now, it’s all about the holiday season, with BeautyStat’s first ever Holiday 2011 Makeup competition. Are you ready? Here’s what the competition is about:

Makeup for Face: We want an overall holiday face look (this includes eye shadows, lipsticks, lip gloss and foundation). Please use a holiday palette to create your looks. It does not have to be from 2011, although of course currency is always welcome.

Be sure to send us a SHORT PARAGRAPH using the products you used to create your look and please proof and spell check this for accuracy since we will publish this paragraph AS IS. Also include a one line of your inspiration –how did you get inspired? Any catalog or advertisement?

NAILS: We will be featuring Holiday Nails for this portion of the contest. Deck your digits in anything that strikes your fancy — the more creative, the better, but solid nail polish application techniques are important too.

The winners of both the Makeup and Nails category will take home $300 worth of NYC New York Color cosmetics. If you know the brand at all, you’ll realize that is a TON of makeup! Here’s a sample of what the winners will receive:

Finalists: BeautyStat’s First Holiday 2011 Makeup Competition: Sponsored by NYC New York Color Cosmetics

For my Winter Wonderland Inspired Nail Art look, I Used Essie
“Borrowed and Blue” polish for the base color.
I then used N.Y.C. French White Tip, to paint on snow flakes and
frosted tips for that snowy effect! I then used a White crackle on my
thumb; OPI Katy Perry’s- “Last Friday Night” on the middle digit, and
for my last but not least nail- Essie- Set in Stone. I was inspired
by a Winter Wonderland look because I love all things sparkle, and
what sparkles more then a snowy winter wonderland!!?

Congratulations ladies, each of you will be taking home $300 worth of NYC New York Color cosmetics. Happy holidays!
