Tallied Up... And the Results Are In for the Spring Fling Fever Contest Winners!

I set out a challenge, and boy you gals did some greatness! You don't honestly think I'd make you wait until tomorrow to announce this, did you?? Then again... I just might have! But I'm much too excited- so I'll share with you now!

I asked you to create a look inspired by spring- to be as daring and dramatic as you like. Or sweet, simple and everyday makeup... It was completely up to you. Now, I've tallied up the votes and ready to announce the winners. Are you ready? Of course you are... But let me remind you of a few things first. Ha ha ha! You didn't think I'd just jump right out and say it, did you?!  Besides... It's me doing this. So I'll do what I like!

I want to first thank each and every girl who submitted a look for this contest. You all did a wonderful job, and surprised me with the creative and outstanding looks you came up with. Each one was different from the others- some of you took elements of flowers, some of you actually painted flowers on your face, and others went sweet and springy, or extreme, bright and bold. This is definitely a hard decision on who to pick as far as voting because I'd give every entrant a prize if I could.

I'll be changing rules of contests in the future, only because I didn't feel this one played out as fairly as it could have. I'm certainly welcome to suggestions from those of you would like to offer any up- but let me make it clear that I don't think that this contest was unfair in any way. We had fun! That was the main goal! The winners deserved to win! (You all did!) You came up with your own interpretations of flowers! You all had friends and family come by and vote for you. It's good! Anywho- I'll be altering rules in the future... One of the main ones is that I'll never again end anything at midnight PST... Because that's a puffy-eye-burning hour to be up... And I just can't stay up that late anymore. My body protests quite violently- and my eyes stay puffed for days. Not pretty.

Ok, I'm done with my rambling for the time being... Sorry, I'm on a chocolate sugar high!

Drumroll please.... Aaaaaaaand...
1st Prize Winner of the Spring Fling Fever contest is:

Cassandra M! With beautiful Hibiscus flowers painted on her face, she's certainly inspiring spring feelings here! It reminds me of Hawaii- even though I've never been there- it's one of my "Bucket List Destinations" to visit. I can feel the warm sun, cool breeze, and sand under my toes already! And hopefully a pretty handsome cabana boy bringing me tropical drinks with those cute little umbrellas *wink*

The Grand Prize consists of 3 FrankenShades I'll create from my massive collection of unopened cosmetics from The-Company-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named- and Cassandra, all you need to do is tell me what colors you'd like! Additionally, you'll need to email me (trinnity218 gmail) because Shannon V has generously donated five 5 gram jars of  Simply Naturals mineral eye shadows in the following colors: Ice (white highlighter), Tea Rose (dusty red), Vegas (gold with brown undertones), Goldrush (gold-ish), and Sandstorm (brown with gold undertones) and she'll need your address to send them to you!

Now after some thinking as I was tallying results... I've decided I'm tossing in an extra FrankenShade for the Second and Third Prize placements! So that means Second Place gets 3 colors, and Third Place gets 2!

Drumroll again....

The Second Place winner is Reggie G from Color Me Obsessed!! Indeed, I was drooling over her amazing swatches of Inglot over on her blog... So when she used these intense colors to create her Tiger Lily inspired eyes.... I was floored! I mean hello intensity!!!! And just an all around gorgeous interpretation of the flower itself. We have some outside that will hopefully bloom within the next few weeks- and this certainly is one of my favorite flowers. And I have to throw in extra kudos for even getting the "spots" like the flower even has!

So my colorful friend, you have 3 custom shades you need to inform me that you would like Frankened!

And last but not least.... Drumroll again....

The Third Place winner is Karen D from Crazy Mama Karen with her gorgeous two-toned Tulip inspired eye look! I'm telling you- I have eye color envy about this picture because the colors she chose just accent her eyes perfectly! And look how sparkling they are!! It makes me wish I could look out at our tulips... But sadly, we have deer around up here. So unless we somehow keep them out of the garden, they inevitably find and eat the flowers! Darn deer!! So I'll just be content at looking at Karen's eyes!

Karen, it's your turn to pick two colors you'd like made!

And there you have it! The three Spring Fling Fever contest winners!
If I could give each and every one of you a prize, I sure would... But unfortunately, I can't... At least not until I win the lottery somehow! I'd like to encourage you to not give up either! Play with color, experiment, step out of your comfort zone... You just might find out that you like a new look from time to time!

Remember- makeup washes off- so don't be afraid to experiment with color!!!!

Wishing you a wonderful spring full of beautiful flowers and colors!
