If you’ve been following us on Facebook you’ll know that over the month of October, we at QC Makeup Academy held our annual Halloween Makeup Contest! This year we had two categories: Gore and Fantasy makeup. This past week we selected the semi-finalists, posted them to our Facebook page, you guys voted for your favorites, and the top looks with the most likes were sent over to our expert judges to select a winner.
Thank you to everyone you participated by entering a makeup look and to those who voted! We had the pleasure of seeing all the amazing talent you have, and the judges definitely had a hard time selecting only one winner of their category to get the ultimate prize.
We sat down with our judges, Michele Mulkey and Nathan Johnson, to go over and critique each of the finalists’ work and to pick the winner!
