Winner For 2014 Novice category are...

Grand Prize Winner - Orengji Chong 
My inspiration comes from the women of the red Indian tribes of America. No matter how dangerous their circumstances may be, they will still bravely protect the people around them. The design of the eyeliner ink is attributed to their belief of the power they are granted by past ancestors to protect their family and loved ones.  

First Runner Up - Kimberly Lye 
As they say, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. To me, bravery is the continuous effort to improve ourselves and trying things we have never tried before. I used pink to represent a girl's brave heart. The blue stands for freedom. We have to keep on improving ourselves and our skills in any fields of interest to become a successful woman. Just like the unique shade of Purple.    

Second Runner Up - Vyxvern Chong
Bravery is not just exclusive to men. The modern women can have it too, and it is something admirable. Some women and girls may be facing difficulties in life, but they should shoulder it bravely and never be shy or afraid. In my makeup I use the colour Red, underneath the eyes, symbolizing Courage covering shyness and fear. The purple eye shadow symbolizes nobility whereas the eyeliner speaks of elegance in handling the ups and downs of life.

Consolation Prize - Carmen Lim
The colour Purple is often characterized as Mysterious. I believe most women is as such, mysterious, on the inside. The red & pink shades on top blending into the purple eyeshadow symbolizes women, being active, energetic and enthusiastic yet at the same time, still gentle and sweet. The white eye shadow gives a sense of elegance. The black eyeliner helps bring out determination and blue hues on the eyelashes completes the overall beauty.


I should probably ooze a little more bravery in beauty. :) 
Time to get inspired!
