I just posted the 9 winners to my latest giveaway. I cannot tell you how difficult it was to narrow down just 5 hand-picked winners, and I honestly wish I had the resources to send all of you prizes. You really captured the spirit of makeup and put it into words.
While I was reading all the entries, I copied and pasted my favorites into a Word document, and then picked the top 5 winners from that. Here are some excerpts from the other entries that made it into that document - unfortunately I couldn't give you all prizes, but you definitely deserve kudos!
I truly love makeup because it is a temporary way to change the way you look. so many things these days are permanent, so it is nice to have a way to change your look and something about you and then be able to wipe it off at the end of the night.
i love makeup because it allows me to express my personality in a very artistic, feminine and fun way and everyone has their own way of expressing it, whether it may be a rock-and-roll style or even a plain neutral look. :) it just helps me appreciate my features more by enhancing it.
