My Contest Entry for MAC Me Over

I usually FORGET about contests that I want to enter…putting it off until totally last-minute, and sometimes missing them completely. Last night I felt as if there was something I was supposed to be doing.. and then .. DUH.. MAC Me Over contest! I totally forgot and I was almost too late! Tonight at 11:59 pm EST is the last moment you can enter the contest to be MAC’s next Fall 2011 face.

Krista Dior MAC Me Over Contest

I whipped out my Nikon D3100, threw it on a tripod,  grabbed an umbrella, three different types of light sources and set up a mini studio in my living room.  Literally made a home run into the bathroom and started putting makeup on. Thankfully I had just gotten an awesome haircut the day before at DiModa salon (San Jose in Willow Glen — thanks to Jen!!!) and my hair barely needed a touch-up.

You can’t exactly see what I’ve got on my eyes, but most notably, I have the Vincent Longo La Dolce Vita corner lashes on with a few coats of the amazing Maybelline Falsies mascara. The foundation I used was L’Oreal True Match with Cover FX loose setting powder over the top. My lipstick is one of my favorite MAC lippies, which is Flowerplay, a lustre finish from the Strange Hybrid collection from 2007. I applied a Philosophy clear Candy Cane gloss on top.

Here are two more photos from the ones I took:
