ABOUT THE #GETNOTICED CONTEST:
Throughout the duration of the six-week contest, one lucky winner per week will have their photographed look featured in L'Oreal Paris' Shocking Extensions Telescopic Mascara online campaign. The six weekly winners will also receive a year's supply of Shocking Extensions Telescopic Mascara and qualify to win a chance at the grand prize.

"Telescopic Mascara delivers the bold look of extensions in a mascara to deliver a dramatic and shocking look," says Billy B. "It's going to be really fun to see all of the diverse and captivating beauty looks submitted for L'Oreal Paris' #GetNoticed contest and campaign – I'm thrilled to be a part of it all."
While judges will be on the lookout for shocking lashes and beautiful, on-trend makeup looks, it's important that photos convey attributes like confidence, composure, drive, energy and charisma – all qualities possessed by L'Oreal Paris' diverse set of brand ambassadors.
Entrants can follow the below tips to ensure they are taking, selecting and uploading their most shocking, get-noticed beauty look:
- Let lashes take center stage by applying a couple coats of L'Oreal Paris' Telescopic Shocking Extensions Mascara. This will ensure lashes have ultra-high impact length and shocking intensity (no false lashes permitted!).
- Use a high-quality camera that will deliver a sharp-focus image full of detail.
- Look for the right lighting – the brighter, the better; but avoid too-bright sunlight that may cause squinting.
- Enlist friends to help you identify your best angle. Shooting yourself head-on, or from a bit of a downward angle is usually the most flattering way to go.
- Consider adding cool photo filters to up the drama and intensity factor.
- Finally, closely follow the instructions on www.lorealgetnoticed.com to learn how to correctly post and crop photo submissions into the magazine ad format provided, so that judges can see why you should be the next face of L'Oreal Paris.
