We missed celebrating a lot of things on IMBB for the past many months. From big things such as becoming the biggest makeup blog or crossing 10000 subscribers to small things such as Rati’s smile while doing her fashion looks or my enjoyable forays into photography. We somehow missed rejoicing over all of these. But more than that we missed celebrating sooooo many great friends that we made through this blog. But when 2012 woke us up from our slumber, we decided we would shatter away the silence with a bang. And what a BANG!

- If your entry is selected and posted in the audition, you have to get as many votes through social media buttons as possible.
- For Bloggers: If you are a blogger and your entry is posted in the audition, we shall be giving link to your blog in your entry post. Also, you are free to use the same look for your blog as well. Not only that, if you post about the contest on your blog with a valid link, we shall give you 50 additional votes. :)
