Thanks for the clarification but I still think you got to appreciate the effort because I definitely and that's maybe because as I stated previously I'm easily impressed by things and think it's good and certainly because of differences in perception.


Oh i 100% appreciate everyone in this competition (why does my computer want to auto correct competition to completion?). I do makeup videos like these too and a lot of them faaaaaar surpass anything I can do which is why a lot of them have like 100k followers. hahaha! They are all so creative and fucking beautiful people like damn. But in this round a lot of them didn't show their true talent and that is what disappointed me. It feels as though this round wasn't taken very seriously by some of them but who knows maybe they had an off two weeks? hahaha


You feel as if they played around in the competition?


Well I mean the theme was anime so I hope they played around and had a little fun doing these videos haha.
But certain individuals definitely gave me the impression that they just didn't care about the theme so they just went on Google typed in "popular anime" and boom. Video Idea.

Oh the word i'm looking for is passion!!!! I felt some of the videos lacked passion. And even if your not passionate about anime you are in a makeup competition so you should be passionate about putting your absolute best foot forward with your makeup skills. but again this is just my opinion.


Oh so you wanted them to give it at their best.?

Well yeah! hahaha. its a makeup competition! The whole point of the NYX Face Awards is to show off your makeup skills and put out the most creative and mind blowing makeup videos you can so that you can be #1. When someone wins the award of Beauty Blogger of the Year they also win like $50k and and get to be sponsored by NYX cosmetics. On top of that NYX and various other sponsors (Target, Redken, clothing brands, etc) send you products FOR FREE to use in your videos. So when I saw videos that only used 5 products or just looked like basic everyday makeup I was disappointed because thats not what anime is and thats not what the competition is supposed to be. On top of that I wanted the people who said that they were "Otakus" to show off this amazing community! To show what kinds of people and creatures that exist in it to the people who aren't a part of the community and I feel like some of them failed to do that and it was disappointing to me.

Who are your three? :D


I watched several and I find that Victoria Lyn Beauty, Colour Creep, and JackyOhhh did a pretty decent job in my opinion as a guy. There was quite a bit effort put in to give them an anime-esque look. Some that I saw were relatively basic and un-anime like lol.

Though I did like GinsMakeup, that look was pleasing to look at on the other hand, and RawBeautyKristi put a lot of effort in, but for me it didn't have the anime feel. Brianna Fox felt more like a mascot for me despite being a good replica of the character, not sure about you on that one lol.

HowtobyJordan didn't feel like anime, and uh I guess yea so far only the first 3 I am voting for gave me that anime feel, though I still have mad appreciation for that makeup work overall from all contestants. I know I can't hit even 1% of what they're doing lol.

btw sorry for slow response, I got up to get cereal and got distracted, oops

I voted for Victoria Lyn Beauty too. I didn't go with Colour Creep or JackyOhhh this time around because I just didn't get an anime vibe from it. Like just looking at the makeup alone and not listening to what they said I just really didn't get the impression. I mean JackyOhhh was closer bc i sorrrrrta got like a Princess Serenity vibe off it but not enough for me to vote for it. They but just seemed like they could have fit in a "Fantasy World" theme better than an "Anime" theme. Their first round videos and even their entry videos fucking killed me tho they were so damn good. and these were definitely amazing just in my opinion not in theme.

GinsMakeup impressed the hell outta me because she was one who was like "I dont know anything about anime" and she in my opinion tried the hardest to seem like she was a part of the community which made me feel very happy.

And thats okay Cereal is the most important food group so i Understand hahah

Yea the latter two I queued them in as like some sort of fantasy anime in my mind, so it worked out in that way for me. I didn't listen either so glad I wasn't the only one lol. Who was your third?

Also I had the amazing epiphany one day..."hmm, honey nut cheerios..+ honey = ....very honey nut cheerios this is fantastic" so my cereal consumption rate jumped 100 % needless to say. It made too much sense!

Alrighty I took a peak at the videos and I can see why you picked Alexa Poletti, that one is good for sure. Maybe I will change a vote, maybe hehe.

What theme do you think the next round should be?

Well she is a fellow cosplayer so i expected nothing less from her. I actually already followed her before the comp started haha.

And I'd love to see something new for a change. Like maybe a "Take something ugly and make it beautiful" kinda thing and see where people go with it. You said you'd like to see a western theme right?

Ah so there is a bit of bias involved with her jk lol

Yea, I said Western because I feel that, out of most of the Western I have seen, it's rather restricted? Might not be the right word, but I think it would be interesting to see what peoples' creativity can do for western. That's what I think anyways.

hahah! no no no! i try to be unbiased with these things. I actually didn't vote for her the first round bc I just didn't like her video. I wasn't really impressed by it. But i did vote for her this round.

and restricted how?

I guess a lot that I have seen, there were re-occuring patterns in what people did and wore in terms of cosplay. But I just realized this is a makeup event so I actually have no idea what to look for.......................................................ooh.......................I feel kinda...uh...I have no words lol.
