Thank You For The Love :)

It’s been a long couple of months! From preparing for the contest back in March to the final stretch narrowing down to last week.

First let me say THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for all of the love I received from my followers (new & seasoned), family, friends, and extended family! Without your daily votes, RT’s, and shares, I never would have made it to the end of the contest.

I moved up from 6th to 3rd place in the last video challenge and am proud to say that I made it to the end (if you missed the video, you can click here to see it). I didn’t win or place in the final results, but it was such an honor to even be considered to compete in Allure Magazine’s Beauty Blogger of the Year contest. 

Congrats to the winners and thank you Allure Magazine for giving me this amazing opportunity to further get my blog, McKenzie Renae, out there to all the fabulous beauty lovers!

I love you all, and again thank you for your support! It sincerely warms my heart to see what a great support system I have :)


Allure Beauty Blogger of the Year: Vote for Challenge 4!

Hey everyone! First and foremost I want to thank everyone who has been voting daily to help me out in Allure Magazines Beauty Blogger of the Year contest. I made it to the 4th challenge (and voting is now open)!

For this weeks challenge, we talked about our favorite trends for the season! My favorite trend is all about neons, from polish to lipstick to eyeliner, you can read about some of my favorites here —> Let There Be Bright: How to Rock Neon This Spring

I wanted to go over a couple of things that may not have been clear before:


1. Each time you vote, tweet the link, and ‘LIKE’ the Facebook share button, this can help in the voting process (tweets and likes don’t count as votes but they still help). Remember, YOU CAN VOTE ONCE EVERY DAY! So when you have free time on your computer, just click this link and vote! Takes all of 2 seconds once you register!


This week, just for voting, you can win:
