Diamonds are a Girls Best Friend: Contest Winners

Words cannot express how amazing all the contest entries were & how hard i found it to wittle it down to a handful of finalists.
Each and everyone of you had clearly put alot of thought and effort into your entries so thankyou!

Okay, so i've had many a helper when it came to deciding the winners..my mum has been sat with me for what seemed like hours umming and ahhing.
I also raked Mike Bailey into helping me decide as it was just too damn hard. (for those of you who dont know who that is, he played the character Sid in the UK programme Skins - knows very little about makeup but very good at judging)

If i had it my way, i would have picked everybody, if i was rich enough i would send you all a prize, sadly im not though..i did have to add another runner up into the competition though as it was too hard to pick between two...(i knew this would happen haha)

1st Runner up

Georgie!

Loved the creativity in this one..we especially liked where you placed the diamantes. They look fab, i would actually consider wearing this on a night you know! :)
Well done lovely!

2nd Runner Up

Shirley
We loved the colours and the blending in this one..you have skill girl! Also love the glitter liner under your eye and the dusting of glitter on the side. You look a million dollars! (as diamonds are ;))

International Winner

Katinka
I love how glamourous you look :) Also love the gems & glitter and your eyes look FAB! Love the fake bottom lashes too! Well done lovely :)

UK Winner

Faye
This must have taken you aggges Faye! It's so intricate, feminine & delicate and so so pretty. I love that it's so glittery yet subtle at the same time. My mum also added that if there was an advert for "diamonds are a girls best friend" this would be a perfect promo image, and it really would :)

To all winners: Please email me with address details & if you are a runner up let me know which of the two earrings you'd like :)
Well done to all of you who entered, i really enjoyed seeing everything you came up with, there are some extremely talented girls out there.
Just a note to say this was one of the hardest things i had to do for a while haha
I'm too nice & just wanted you all to be winners.
Please no bitterness or snidey comments, it's all a bit of light hearted fun at the end of the day, and i'm pleased that im able to give some of you something back :)
I think i will do a simply giveaway next time, only because i just hate judging so much haha.

Thankyou once more to all the gorgeous girlies who entered.
I'll be very cheesy now & say you are all diamonds! *puke* hehe
