Hey Everyone! This week for MelsModels was incredible, and while everyone impressed us, the pressure raised as the judges and myself had to eliminate 1/4 of the competition! This decision was crazy because literally every single finalist could have won this challenge, so in order to make a fair decision we really had to analyze and look at the sceneries many times. It was fun to see everyone go commercial, but I am a bit disappointed because I feel like everyone had negatives associated with their scenery; noone really hit it out of the ballpark. But with that being said, everyone created something stunning. Since there are only four girls, there will be a winner and a bottom three (noone in the middle).
The winner for this challenge is..
shake-something !! Congratulations, your scenery will be featured on the homepage of the club and Stardoll's Most Wanted blog owned by Emorox4eva. Your commercial was innovative, gorgeously detailed, and it would really stop a girl dead in her tracks and make her want your eyeshadow. While your commercial was lackluster, the name of your product wasn't the best, and the mask you created was borderline tacky, you prevailed with the simple styling, breathtaking makeup, and a severe passion! Keep this up to get to the finale!
1. BabetteCouture- Your ad and overall concept was very edgy. You showed us once again just how to use horsehair, and you really conquered the 'bed-head and sexy' look that made everyone want your eyeshadow. Your commercial and catch phrases were some of the best of the bunch, but the reason you didn't win was because your scenery wasn't very covergirl. You were kind of modeling your own makeup line, because I feel as if it was too sensual for covergirl. I would have preffered a fresher and cleaner ad, but you still left us very impressed and wanting more. Also a sidenote, I know how passionate you are to win this competition, but I feel as though you aren't showing it as much as you used to. While your sceneries continue to be incredibly amazing, I want to feel how much you want this again because the sceneries in MelsModels are only half of it.
2. Cianboland- Your commercial wasn't the best, it was nice but I felt as though it was one of the worst of the bunch. Your ad however was very unique and you also make a very clean and appropriate pose. Us judges just had a problem with your styling. The bracelets, hair, andmakeup didn't work. You had alot going on and were wearing too much makeup that caused it not to look like a mascara ad. I think you know this because you then added those mascara bottles, which were super cute, but I actually didn't even notice them with everything going on. You are so talented but you have a problem with consistency. One week your so close to winning and the next your close to going home. While I know you have what it takes,sometimes you just don't pull it all together.
3. lgap- By far you had the best commercial, the way you worded everything was informational, perfect for a commercial, and very covergirl. You were the only one to say 'easy, breezy, beautiful, Covergirl!' and I feel as though that made everything come together. Your concept was smart and I could easily see it being a real ad, but it wasn't very commercial it was very editorial. I say this because the pose and the dramatic vibe to the scenery didn't make it look like you were selling eyeshadow, it made it look like you were selling a fragrance, your ring, or even yourself as a model. Your scenery was very amazing at bringing the attention into your makeup though, right away I noticed the piercing purple eyes with the pink eye shadow and I loved the styling with the hair, ring, and freckles. And although I would have liked to see you create an outfit, you really have great taste and I think it worked without one. Just be careful when your trying to convey a certain vibe to your scenery, because sometimes unintentionally you could be portraying something else, which happened this wee. Once again you have so much potential and your always so close to hitting a homerun, and that is what frustrates us judges the most because we see just how close you are each week.
This was SUCH a tough decision. You are one of the most passoniate, eager, and bubbly contestants we have ever had in MelsModels, and each week I would be excited to see your work because you always had extravagant and interesting ideas and concepts. Your poses, styling, and taste are usually on mark but because of your problems with consistency the judges and myself are worried you wouldn't work it out in the final rounds. I feel as though as each week went on the pressure increased and maybe the pressure of wanting it so bad got to your head, because in the beginning your talent came across as effortless and natural. With that being said you really have grown alot and I am so honored and happy that you were apart of this cycle, especially since you auditioned the day before I announced callbacks.
To the Final Three! Congratulations, this is a HUGE deal and I am so proud of each and every one of you. Take a few days to rest those talented and fierce brains of yours, because around Tuesday I will be posting the second-to-last task and you will have to give it everything you have to make it to the finale!
Love you all!
