The contest was a chance to win LA LA Anthony’s Fall 2012 Motives for LA LA make up collection!
In 300 creative words or less, readers told us why they deserved a makeover. The contest ran between October 16 – October 31, 2012 and helped kick off Madame Noire’s first social media targeted contest of the Fall. This was a great collaboration with mother, wife, entrepreneur and actress La La Anthony. One lucky winner was chosen for this great win and we would love to send a big shout out to our Motives for LA LA Contest Winner P.Exum!
Here is a snippet of the winning entry:
I’m divorced and a mother of an amazing 16 year-old son who has Autism but I’ve neglected and forgotten about myself! Two years ago my former employer downsized and finding myself unemployed for the first time in over 20 years, I took advantage of the opportunity to be a stay-at-home mom. I focused on my son’s development, created a fresh new home environment minus the husband, and searched for a new career path. I began dressing casually (sweats) & wearing make-up occasionally (mostly lip gloss).
Being a lover of all things beautiful, I consider myself a fashionista and a trendsetter who’s lost her place in line, I’m working to get my spot back and replacing my crumbled, cracked, dry and expired make-up would be a blessing. With a new job and the tightest budget ever ~
We would love to thank all of the people who submitted entries! We look forward to bringing our Madame Noire community more great opportunities!
