My Thi Cosmetics Halloween Contest Makeover!

Wednesday, November 18th, 2009 | Contests, Fashion, Makeovers, Makeup, Photos | 1 Comment

meilily-thi-cosmetics-halloween-makeover-swan-collage
On a whim, I entered an online Halloween Costume Contest posted on the blog of one of my favorite beauty brands, Thi Cosmetics, and… I won a makeover by super-talented makeup artist Taylor Pham!

Check out more photos of my very special makeover on the Thi Cosmetics blog (and additional photos by Kandidlight Photography)! It was an amazing experience (hair, brows, makeup, lashes), and I loved every minute of it! Thank you so much, Taylor and Mimi!

My costume entry: A handmade replica of the swan dress that Bjork wore to the Oscars. I later paired my swan dress with some Lady Dragon heart heels to complete the whimsical look!

About Thi Cosmetics: Taylor Pham started Thi Cosmetics with business partner and multi-talented friend Mimi Tran Rickett, and since then they have opened a gorgeous makeup studio in downtown Palo Alto, CA. If you’re in the area, definitely stop by – you’ll be hooked!

Read about all the details of my Thi Cosmetics Halloween Contest Makeover up next…
