One very happy girl and her banana frosty on the North Shore of Kauai
So. Much. Beauty.
If your beauty wishlist is anything like mine, it just keeps getting longer every single day.
What’s up with that?
A blush here, a mascara there — and before you know it, your wishlist reads like a novella.
If you’re ready to start crossing a few of those things off your beauty wishlist, don’t forget to enter the Makeup and Beauty Blog Buxom Photo Contest if you haven’t already.
You could take home a $500 Visa gift card and a selection of beautiful Buxom makeup worth an additional $109.
All told, it’s a prize package worth $609.
And entering couldn’t be a whole lot easier. Full details are down below, but here’s the gist of it: submit a picture of yourself in which you’re “living life vividly.”
Maybe something from a recent vacation, or a shot of yourself just having fun.
NOTE: Goofy face shots totally count…
This is how we do it!
…as do happy faces and big smiles.
The beach makes everything better (even cold beaches like this one here!)
You might even have a perfect picture already, like how about that pic you took of yourself in that bright makeup look you did for Halloween?
Next stop: the grocery store!
Or how about a pic of yourself sporting a pair of bright, glossy lips?
Can you spot the husky tabby in this picture?
Highlights and life-changing hairdos also work!
Whatever you choose, your entries (remember, you can enter up to three pics) just have to show you “living life vividly,” like the pictures in this post.
