Sacred Creative Artistry Competition – Seasons of The Year (Results)

Welcome back to the results of this month’s compitition. We’re pleased to announce that the winner is Nikki Kane who based her entry on “An English Spring” We’d like to thank everyone who submitted their entries and also those who have been following the compeitition and supporting us since we started last year. Nikki is now the proud owner of a gorgeous set of Red Cherry Lashes as well as a fantastic 10 shade lip palette. We look forward to seeing the “Art” she creates with them. We chose Nikki’s look as we loved the use of a subtle variety of colour and her interpretation of spring.  The flowers that she used in the foreground helped to tie in the total look and complemented the shades of shadow she worked with. It wasn’t too heavily applied but you got a definite warm feeling.  In our opinion the look needed some lashes to make the eyes stand out more. We like the fact that she’s blended in the eyebrows so they’re not too defined but we would have liked to …
