In November, we launched our custom makeup contest to celebrate the incredibly varied options that the Blue Mars cosmetics options allow for. The makeup layer entries we received were far more elaborate than I'd expected. I was anticipating Clara Bow lips and vampy eyeliner, but what we received were some gorgeously artistic complete looks. Tomorrow I'll be announcing the first place winning cosmetics look (and offering it for download!), but for today we have our fun and wild runner-up look instead!
Our semi-finalist is Boeman Fhang with this striking and carnivalesque makeup design which you can download for yourself here. This look reminds me a lot of face painting booths at fairs, down to the big red nose and whiskers. At the same time, it's a little reminiscent of warpaint, and it takes full advantage of the many different kinds of cosmetics shapes available.
If Boeman's look has inspired you but you still need a little guidance, check out my summary of everything you need to know to be a virtual makeup artist in Blue Mars. Congratulations to Boeman and as for our grand prize winner, keep your eyes peeled for the big announcement on this blog tomorrow!
