When it comes to shaking up your regular makeup routine, us ladies are never at a loss for a new look to try out. There’s the tried-and-true, barely-there mascara and blush look, the classically dramatic cat-eye, the bold red lip…the list goes on. Though these looks are foolproof on just about everyone, it’s those unexpected, totally individual beauty looks that really get us going: there’s this fall’s sumptuously dark plum lip, sixties-era spidery eyelashes, and basically any throwback to nineties grunge makeup you can think of. This month, no matter what avant-garde trend or classic look you adopt, we’re here to make sure that your talents with a makeup brush don’t go unnoticed.
Bloom, where real women and beauty professionals share beauty trends, favorite products, and solve dilemmas, is the only social network dedicated to nothing but beauty. This month, we’re teaming up with them to launch the Campus Beauty Battle, where collegiettes across the country can show off their beauty talents for a chance to win $1,000 in FREE beauty products – talk about a well-stocked makeup bag! If you think your school makes the grade, then follow these simple guidelines to master your social beauty skills:
- Share your best looks on Bloom.com. For example: going out looks, 5-minute hairstyles, everyday makeup looks, etc.
- Describe how you got the look in the details section, with the hashtag #socialbeauty to enter your photo. You can even tag which products you use!
- Once you’ve saved your photo, click the share button to encourage your Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest followers to vote for you!
The photo with the most “Looks Good” votes wins $1000 in free beauty products!
For those of you on the go, you can also upload your photos using Bloom’s free iPhone app Bloom Beauty Trends. Voting starts today, November 1st and goes through November 20th. The winner will be announced the following Monday, November 26. There is no limit to how many photos you can enter, so whip out those makeup brushes and your liquid eye liner and get to work — we can’t wait to see what runway-worthy looks you’ve got up your sleeves!
