Hey BH Beauties! Welcome to BH Cosmetics School of Beautycraft and Makeup Wizardry. For those of you who missed it, something magical happened on Twitter, and it turned into a bewitching giveaway based on a Harry Potter Makeup challenge that was the perfect way to kick off fall!
How the #BHBeautycraft Harry Potter Makeup Challenge Was Born
Before we get to the winners and the honorable mentions list, here’s how the idea got brewing in the first place:
Pretty soon, people started telling us they were inspired to create a Harry Pottter makeup look. We couldn’t let all of that effort go to waste, so we created an all new #BHBeautySecret Giveaway… the #BHBeautycraft Harry Potter Makeup Challenge! From time to time on social media, we reveal a #BHBeautySecret giveaway, and this seemed like the perfect way to give a few lucky winners a set of our newest brushes: Smoke N’ Mirrors 10 Piece Brush Set + Case!
A Winner From Each Hogwarts House!
With a little help from the Sorting Hat, we selected one lucky winner from each Hogwarts-inspired house. This was NOT easy! There were so many gorgeous makeup looks! Before we get to the winners, let’s show off some of the most amazing, adorable, creative, and gorgeous looks from each house — including a LOT of international submissions from BH Beauties around the world.
Loyal Hufflepuffs are known for their dedication, hard work, fair play, and patience. The beautiful @isadsmith, @kalgerbs, @taters_totss, and @pixelsarah were among the many Hufflepuff entries!
Wise Ravenclaws are known for their intelligence, cleverness, wit, and unending search for knowledge. The gorgeous @ignitedcanvas, @inoru88, @skinlikewinters, and @ana_paula_aldecoa all showed their Ravenclaw colors with pride!
Sly Slytherins show admiration for thos with ambition, cunning, power, and resourcefulness. The breathtaking @beccacopsicle, @ciarawhyte_, @sarahhevanss_, @alexaplanz,@babyheidii, @cuteupdollXO, @cry_pt1ds, and @miss_ceilidh created Slytherin looks that even a Malfoy would be proud of. As you can see, there are quite a LOT of Slytherin fans who joined in, so we couldn’t just pick 4!
Daring Gryffindors value bravery, daring, and chivalry above all else. The stunning looks created by @defined_beaute, @jesslemakeup, @littlemspiano, and @monica143 all blaze their Gryffindor colors with fiery glory!
ALL FOUR HOUSES!
We had to give a special shout out to these incredibly talented makeup mavens that created amazing looks for all 4 Hogwarts Houses!
