Who loves makeup??

I certainly do....especially after becoming one of those snooty "makeup girls" at a department store. I loved that job! There is so much to say about the power of being able to help someone feel beautiful & look stunning!! I didn't love all the un-fun "sales quotas" & such or the sharkiness by the makeup divas from the "other" lines. But how I LOVE makeup. Totally one of the best things about being a girl!!

I have a friend from the makeup days who is competing for her chance to become "the smashbox beauty guru". She has amazing ideas for makeup products and she has her campaign here. But she needs votes to win this thing. So please vote for the talented Miss Christiana!! These pics you see are her creations!! I'm tellin' you, the girl is tops & has ambition.

Here is the Grand Prize: One winner, chosen by the Smashbox and Sephora panel from the top three entries that receive the highest vote score during Round 2 voting will be named the Smashbox Beauty Guru and receive $5,000 of Smashbox Cosmetics, an all-expenses-paid trip for two to Los Angeles on August 3, 2008 for a 1 week apprenticeship at Smashbox Cosmetics to design the official Smashbox Fashion Week Makeup Palette and an all-expenses-paid 3-day trip for two to Los Angeles to attend Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in March 2009 for the debut of their Smashbox palette. In addition, the Smashbox Fashion Week Makeup Palette designed by the winner will be produced by Smashbox, sold exclusively at Sephora and featured in the Sephora catalog.

So help a sistah out and VOTE!!

This comment is not totally related to the comment, altho I do think you friend is very talented...but I wanted to let you know how much I love your LO's and your blog in general. I popped over here from CKMB when I saw a post saying you were coming to CA (Where? I live in NorCal) and enjoyed your blog so much I 'bookmarked' it so I could visit again. Keep up the great work!
