#NoSkinToneLeftBehind Contest Winners!

 

At AMAZINGCOSMETICS, we celebrate women of all skin tones and ethnicities!
That's why we invited women from all across the country to upload a selfie and share the story of the skin they're in. Since we offer 20 diverse shades of AMAZINGCONCEALER, we chose 20 different winners to represent each shade. Find out more about these AMAZING women below! 

Marti – Ivory
I'm a diehard makeup lover, a mommy to one beautiful baby boy, and excited because I've never won a contest until now! I feel like one of the 20 luckiest girls alive!

Shannon – Light Honey
I'm so excited to have been chosen to represent Light Honey in the #NoSkinToneLeftBehind contest! I'm 27 years old and I'm a full time nursing student. I graduate as a Registered Nurse in May and I've worked really hard to be here. I'm from a huge family of 8 kids. My family is French and Cherokee Indian for the most part. I love my skin and absolutely love my AMAZINGCONCEALER. I tried it on a whim and fell in love. It's all I use now!

Mischaela – Golden Ivory
In my teens I was a fashion model, which led to sitting in MANY a makeup chair. I had to sit there the longest because we had to custom mix my concealer and foundation. Makeup artists rarely have something light enough in their kit to fit me, and full body makeup is just not practical. I've rarely been able to walk into a store and pick up something ready made to fit my skin tone. The beauty industry always thinks that because you're very fair, you are porcelain white. As someone who checks ‘Other’ when asked their ethnic heritage, I need products that are at the fairest end of the scale but have yellow undertones to fit my Eurasian complexion. I've tried all sorts of color matching technology and have to buy foundation only to mix it with something else. Thankfully, Amazing Cosmetics has a dedication to #NoSkinToneLeftBehind!

Lauren – Fair
I'm a recently engaged mom attending college. I have loved playing and experimenting with makeup since the age of three thanks to my mom. I do makeup for weddings, homecomings, proms, theater and costumes. I'm working on starting a blog. Meanwhile, I'm finishing college to become an aesthetician. I love using Amazing Cosmetics and I've been picking up my shade from my local ULTA for the past five years!

Kelsey – Fair Golden
I go to a university on the west side of Michigan where I am a double major in Human Resources and Marketing. I really like to dance and be funny, and boating is my favorite thing to do during the summer since I live by a lake. I’m super involved with my sorority and the events that we do. I'm currently holding two leadership positions, which keeps me busy along with my school work.

Daylen – Light Beige
My name is Daylen and I am an up-and-coming makeup artist. I am sports-loving girl who does not mind dressing up once in a while. I am married to the love of my life. We met on a trip to Italy.

Georgina – Light Golden
I was born in Jordan, Amman. I moved to the U.S. when I was 7 years old. Makeup was always an interest of mine. I was fascinated by my ability to not only transform myself but also others into someone extraordinarily beautiful. I am now 33 years old, a mother of 3 beautiful children. I am proud to say I'm self taught in all that I know, but have in the past year earned my credentials as an artist. I freelance and love it. My love for artistry is not only in the transformations I provide my clients with, but it's with the empowerment I see my clients gain as they glance at their faces when I'm finished applying their makeup. I love turning the ordinary into extraordinary!

Hoku – Medium Beige
Most people think I’m Japanese because of my name. I’m actually Thai and my name is Hawaiian, since I was born in Hawaii. Hoku means star, and my full nickname is Hokulani. I went to school and work in a numeric/data/analytical field, but my hidden talent is in art and music. I live a “Hannah Montana” type of life. I am like a normal person by day, and on nights and weekends I sing in a band like a rock star.

Megg – Medium Golden
I'm a young adult working at a health and fitness center helping others reach their goals. My dream job is to be a campaign manager for an advertising agency and a part time group fitness instructor.  I love sitting home on the weekend and just relaxing in my sweats watching college football (Go Blue) or spending time outdoors to keep active. I'm mainly Irish, but have a little bit of Syrian in me. I'm also left handed. 

Cheryl – Dark Beige
My name is Cheryl and I am an Instagram beauty/fashion blogger since 2014. I have a passion for cosmetics and skin care and love reviewing products. I love when people state that I've helped them making a choice in what to buy based on my reviews. I love AMAZINGCONCEALER because they have a shade for every skin color! 

Michaela – Tan
My name is Michaela Wittman and I live in Chicago. I am of Western European and African ancestry. I am studying special education. I’m a vegan who loves the outdoors and a few of my passions are in lifeguarding and leading in a Christian college ministry.

Meliza – Tan Golden

Charee – Medium Tan
I am a native Texan, divorced mother of two teenage daughters.  I am a state employee on a full time basis, work part time for the Houston Texans, and volunteer for Houston ISD at Austin High School.  When I have downtime to relax, I like to read magazines, listen to music, and watch television.What people don't know about me is that I am an undercover geek, I love watching old cartoons, sci-fi shows, and wrestling. 

Cherice – Dark Tan
I'm a loving wife, stay-at-home mom, makeup artist, and natural hair enthusiast who enjoys living life to the fullest. I've come to learn that it's important to do what you love because in the end it'll never feel like you’re working!

Tasha – Light Caramel
My name is Tasha and I'm a 34-year-old mother to three amazing kids! I'm from New Jersey and I'm Black mixed with Puerto Rican. My in-between skin tone makes it very difficult to find the perfect shade. Which is why I'm so excited to be a part of the #NoSkinToneLeftBehind campaign.

Lasharay – Caramel
I am 30 years old and I was born and raised in Toledo, Ohio.  I am a military spouse and the mother of 2 energetic children. In my spare time, I enjoy doing product reviews, unboxings, DIYS and natural hair videos on both my blog and YouTube channel.  Overall I am a very down-to-earth person and somewhat of an open book!

Kayla - Dark Caramel
I am a woman of Black, Native American, French and Irish descent. I love music and film. As an aspiring actress, it's so important to put your best face forward. Amazing Cosmetics allows me to do just that with such a wide variety of shades!
