Makeup By Ren Ren's Huge Makeup Contest Giveaway!

Hi Bellas,

So today is the day I finally announce my huge contest, woo hoo! I've been waiting for the big day that I reached 10,000 subscribers on You Tube and I finally made it! At this point, I'm actually over 11,000. This month also marks my one year anniversay of my blog! I wanted to do a contest and give out some fab prizes to thank all of my readers and subscribers for supporting me along the way. I really can't express how you guys have been there for me...helping me to push myself and really turn my passion into a career. Thank you so much!

Let me stop before I get too mushy, he he.

Check out my video for the run down:

If you're interested in participating, please read the rules carefully.

Rules and Requirements

  • You must be a subscriber of my youtube page to participate.

  • You must leave a comment under this blog post to tell me that you are participating.

  • This must be your own work! Post a live video response to my Contest Video with your video entry. When I say live video, I do this because many of my blogger friends (Vanessa and Lurve) have had picture theft. I want to ensure that this doesn't happen. You must have a live video and not pictures in a slideshow.

The video entry

  • I want you to make a video imitating my talk, my mannerisms, the music...all while recreating a look that I've done in a previous Youtube Video.

  • Be creative! Making me laugh is a plus.

  • Don't forget the hot music - my boyfriend will also be a judge.

  • I'm also looking at looks and makeup skills that will blow me away. Heck, do it better than I did!


  • I will have 3 winners: 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. At least one of the three winners will go to someone who may not be an expert at makeup, but someone who will still make a great effort. This is to encourage those of you who might not think you have the skills to enter...I guarantee at least one makeup beginner will win.

  • The first place winner will have first choice of prize, second place has second choice, and the third place will receive whatever prize is left.

  • This is open to international readers and viewers.


  • You have three weeks to post your video response and leave a comment to tell me you're participating. The deadline is 11:59pm on December 1st, 2008.

  • I will announce a winner by December 15th, 2008. This will give me enough time to review the videos and hopefully have your packages mailed out around Christmas.

Now for the prizes! These are some great makeup and hair goodies. It took me months to bust my bum and collect these for you guys. I know you're going to love them!
