As of 12:01 am. PST, Feb 4th this competition is closed and any votes posted beyond that time will not be counted. As usual, I will refrain from voting unless my vote is needed to break a tie.
Thanks again everyone who has participated by voting! We will announce our winner for this category as soon as all votes are counted and a clear winner is decided for each of our three levels of award.
In counting the votes we will first determine who our top three contenders are and then each of their votes will be scrutinized. All "friend" votes and votes that appear within reason to have been solicited will be removed from our final tally at the sole discretion of our administrative staff. In the process of counting and scrutinizing votes, the order of our top contenders may change so please be patient while we do what we do to keep the competitions fair and the playing field level. We will return soon with our final results!
Getting this award means a lot to me. I have poured myself into my artistry for 5 years and it makes me feel so blessed to be recognized and known by others in the industry. I love every minute I get to do makeup and I hope you will continue you to enjoy my work as I continue to grow as an mua. Congratulations to Show ME Makeup and DJ Griffin and thank you for those who put this contest together.
