A – Nonsense!! To begin with this is not a beauty contest. The objective is to have fun together and share our passion for make up.
So, if you do not feel like allowing us to see your face, then make up your best friend, mother, sister, cousin or even your girlfiend or boyfriend (if he allows you to do so!).

Learning to do make up, improving ourselves and looking better, sharing secrets and advice is already a victory! At the end of the Contest there will be beautiful surprises.

A – Why not? We trust in your capacity and expect your creations! But if you do not feel like doing so, begin by working in one look only!.

A – We leave plenty of space for your fantasy. The important thing is that in the photos the face is clearly seen (first plane) so in this way it would really be useful and efficient to be shared with us and with your new friends at
