Ciao, vuoi un gelato?
Got some beauty staples that need restocking?
A collection you’ve been coveting?
A vacation you’ve been wanting to book?
A girl with purple cat ears waits for something, somewhere in the middle of Montana…
Why not do all three? Enter the Makeup and Beauty Blog Buxom Photo Contest for a chance to win a $500 Visa gift card.
But wait, there’s more (I always wanted to say that). Because we’re big on beauty ’round these parts, the prize also includes more than $100 in Buxom cosmetics. On top of the gift card, that’s a total prize package worth more than half a grand.
Entering is easy, and the full details are down below, but here’s the gist of it: all you need is a picture of yourself taken at a time when you felt great.
Maybe a travel picture from an exciting trip…

Or, how about a fun time you had with friends?

NOTE: Cheesy pics that show you goofing off are totally welcome, too.
Yeah, we’re vampires. What’s up?
It can also be something makeup or beauty related, like perhaps a pic of that nifty neon mani/pedi you did all by yourself, or a shot of your new highlights. Whatever you choose, it just has to be a picture that shows you â€œliving life vividly,â€ like the pictures in this post.
