ElectricBoogaloo June 2, 2021 Share June 2, 2021 I agreed with the judges about who was in the top and who was in the bottom for the music video challenge. Jack's pink makeup with winged lines was bold and graphic so it looked good in the long shots (and honestly, how many close ups do you get of a backup dancer's face in a music video?). Sophie's big smoky eye with gold flakes was also bold and easy to see from a distance. In contrast, Dolli's was too literal and too detailed. Who the hell is going to see those tiny birds on the model's temples? And the makeup was supposed to complement the background, not look the same. Hated the orange lipstick. But I do give her credit for staying calm and making changes when she was told by Rankin that the makeup wasn't working. Craig's metallic green eyes looked very dated but generic. But weird that the places were completely reversed for the second challenge. I've never gotten the feeling that the creative challenge is significantly weighted more than the first challenge (unlike GBBO where it's obvious that the showstopper is weighted much more heavily than the signature and technical challenges to the point where they will completely ignore someone failing at the first two if they do something amazing in the showstopper) which made me think that since each of them did well in one challenge and badly in the other challenge, they should have had all four of them do the face off. I guess the only problem would have been finding quadruplets, but I would have been fine with two sets of twins since this was a full face of makeup and it was really just about blending to get a good gradient. I thought that Jack and Sophie's makeups looked pretty similar - black foreheads, green/red from the eyelid down. Neither of them did much ombré with the black and other color in the middle. But Sophie had more of a gradient within the red so she won by default. In the yellow example, there was no gradient in the yellow itself. The gradient was all in the black/yellow mixture in the middle of the face which neither Sophie nor Jack did. 1 Link to comment
