Jury comments

EllinorRosander

So complete and educational, the final result is a look of dreams. Nice and graceful attitude  – Lidia Mola

The techniques here are outstanding and everything is extremely consistent and thought through down to every detail. – Charlotte Torpegaard

Amazing! So well done. You can tell she has the knowledge of how cream works with powders and how to build from light to dark. Really impressed! – Linda Mehrens

Amazing tutorial and performance! Great personality and professionalism. A true winner to me – Linda Hallberg

Birna Magg

A very nice atmosphere and a very good application.

I like the way Birna has worked her heart out setting the scene and atmosphere for the makeup look. Also showing the important part that makeup plays in a whole.

I loved the intro! Very innovative and creative. Like a movie!

Evelina Forsell

Very creative, very well explained.

It shows the power of transformation with a very beautiful result.

I love this look. It is beautiful and besides from a few 'horror' elements it is actually very wearable. With modern elements. To me it is the most accomplished look of the contenstants.

Beautiful and dark Smokey look with a drop dead gorgeous head piece!

Henry Harjusola

A very strong impact for this look. An amazing empathy!

Beautiful and exciting

I really loved to watch this video! Great personality, such a fun video with a lot of humor!

CheriPassera

Very educational, so inspiring!

Romantic, Harmonious and elegant look!

The whole feeling of Cheri's video is very thorough, from the grey background to the presentation of the products. And she has, in my opinion, one of the most sure hands.

Beautifully made tutorial, and the music fits perfectly for this kind of look!
