Here is Azzi’s advice for contestants:

Day/Winter Splendor Scoring:

Artist: Jessica Puente

  • Creativity: 5/5
  • Effort: 5/5
  • Skill: 3.5/5
  • Theme: 5/5
  • Overall Image: 4/5
  • Total: 22.5./25

Comments: Creative, enormous effort and terrific, dramatic look. Absolutely love the addition of the wig and headpiece and beautiful lip colour. Lashes could be either frosted or slightly shorter for a more balanced look – and watch the blending of the blue contour along the cheekbones and nose

Artist: Jessica Shay

  • Creativity: 5/5
  • Effort: 5/5
  • Skill: 5/5
  • Theme: 4/5
  • Overall Image: 4/5
  • Total: 23/25

Comments: Incredible dramatic look, stunning work showing tremendous creativity and skill. The teeth are just incredible and the glitter is impeccable. Just watch the finer details like the snowflakes – use a more pigmented white and finer brushstrokes and the nails – try frosting the nails or using a more harmonious colour for them.

Artist: Leslie Mendez

  • Creativity: 4/5
  • Effort: 4/5
  • Skill: 5/5
  • Theme: 4/5
  • Overall Image: 4/5
  • Total: 21/25

Comments: A very pretty makeup look that showcases attention to detail and a soft, clean finish. Just love the winged liner and precise intense blue pigment of the lips. Could add more dramatic elements like appliques, stencils or frosted textures to take the look to a more pronounced level

Artist: Isabel Gagne

  • Creativity: 4/5
  • Effort: 4/5
  • Skill: 4/5
  • Theme: 4/5
  • Overall Image: 4/5
  • Total: 20/25

Comments: A lovely creative look that’s very pretty and photographs well. Love the smokey eye and the dash of frosting along the eye. A little more pigment white colour on the stencilling could really intensify the look, as would false lashes and a more dramatic lip colour.

Artist: Abbie Beautement

  • Creativity: 5/5
  • Effort: 5/5
  • Skill: 5/5
  • Theme: 5/5
  • Overall Image: 5/5
  • Total: 25/25

Comments: Beautifully executed, extremely fine elements from the lip colour to the clean intense eyes and gorgeous facial appliques, stunning final image, you worked seamlessly with the theme and just love all the intricate stencilling and frosted details – simply sublime.
