Fall fashion and beauty season is upon us and just like the days when I was gearing up to go back to school, I’m super excited to switch things up again in my closet and in my beauty routine. And, thanks to Kim Kardashian-West’s upcoming selfie-book and our society’s obvious obsession with the selfie (I mean, ABC has a sitcom of the same name debuting this month AND we’ve all heard The Chainsmokers’ song by now!), I thought now would be an awesome time to swirl it all together into our first JustHaves Selfie Contest I’ve dubbed “The Give Great Face Giveaway”!
How It Works
So, what’s the deal with our contest, you ask? Well, I’m going to list some of the hottest fall beauty and hair trends as nom’d by the experts at Harper’s Bazaar, The Zoe Report, Vanity Fair and Allure, to namedrop a few…and YOU are going to show me how you intend to rock them this fall.
What You Can Win
Five lucky winners will receive a shout-out from me on all things social media AND a hand-picked goodie basket valued over $270 of my favorite beauty must-haves of the moment. Oh, and when you win, don’t forget to snap an ‘acceptance’ selfie with your prize!
How To Enter
Oh, and where should you share your Give Great Face Giveaway snaps? On my Instagram, of course! Just post with a shoutout to me, @JustineSantaniello with the #GiveGreatFace hashtag and you’re instantly in the running.
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to take the following beauty and hair trends for fall as your inspiration. Choose one. Choose them all. Mash them up and make them yours!
#1 – The Extreme Cat Eye – this look has been all over the fall runways and is uber dramatic with an otherwise fresh face.
#2 – Creative Braids – Marc Jacobs, Pucci and Givenchy all had their own takes on how to create odd, punky, beautiful and dramatic hairstyles with one, five or even dozens of braids.
#3 – Jewel-tone Eyes with Red Lips – Think Art Deco meets Morticia Adams – intense eye hues with equally intensely red lips are not for the faint of heart.
#4 – Metal on Metal – Armani, Donna Karan and Libertine all featured some majorly metallic eyes and lips that could make even Grace Jones blush.
#5 – Spider Lashes – Think “doll-eyes” with this fun fall beauty trend. Gucci, Versace, Prada and YSL all featured this bold lower-eyelash trend with often epic upper lid lashes to match.
As you might imagine, I’m going to be subjectively judging the awesomeness of your selfie. So, snap what your mama gave you, ladies (and gents…hey, I know a lot of you guys can be beautiful too). I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
You have from now through October 9th to enter! There’s no limit on how many times you can enter or how many trends you can tackle. Just #GiveGreatFace!
