Last Month's Challenge

 March Makeup Challenge

Runs until March 31

Hello! Thank you for visiting the MostlyDead challenge page. PLEASE READ EVERYTHING THAT FOLLOWS!

Each month we hold a new challenge that is open to everyone. Each month we give away a gift certificate code to the lucky winner, and sometimes other prizes as well.

Winner receives a $100 gift card and if there are 10 or more QUALIFIED entries into the contest, we will also give out 2nd and 3rd place prizes as well, so if you have friends that you think would enjoy this contest, please tag them in our social media announcements about it, share the post or send them a link to this page ( )

We made it! Winter is coming to a close and this month spring Marches in on the 19th. Spring is the time of transformations. Frozen landscapes start to melt and change from white to green. Days get longer, brown foliage grows new leaves and turns green again. Caterpillars come out of their cocoons as butterflies. Bears wake up with a new, slim figure- and you are going to have a sex change!

To celebrate the transformation of the season, and to try something new and have a lot of fun, this month we will all be transforming into the opposite gender. I’m not sure there’s a need for much more of an become women and women become men (only temporarily, of course). If you already live or play as the opposite gender, this may be easy for you, but for some, it may be quite a challenge. You may use prosthetics, facial hair, wigs, clothing or anything else to make this change. As always, let’s keep it PG-13. You may also use a model, as opposed to changing yourself, but we will need to see before and after photos either way. 

Write a brief bio on your character to tell us who you would be as the opposite sex. (Be as creative as you like) Include things such as likes, dislikes, hobbies, job/career, personality type, relationship etc...
(keep it under about 200 words, please)

You will be judged on the following criteria:

1) Originality
2) Makeup concept 
3) Makeup execution (technique/detail)
4) Presentation (setting or background/lighting/costume)
5) Adherence to theme
6) Character development /

It’s great that you are crediting everyone involved, and we encourage you to do so on your social media pages, when you post the photos to social media. We always post the social media ID;s of the MUA so people can visit their page and see other credits there, but since this is a makeup contest for makeup artists, we will only be announcing and tagging the names of the makeup artists. There should only be one MUA working on each piece, so there will be one name mentioned for each entry. Your models and photographers absolutely deserve credit for their work, but this is up to you to put on your page. Our announcements will only mention the makeup artist.
