  1. Find some inspiration and make your own version of your chosen favorite.

There's no harm in just looking for inspiration. It certainly doesn't mean you're a copycat! Great ideas can come from a bit of inspiration observing the things, people, and events around you. 

"This girl posted her senior photo putting an eyeshadow. So I decided to have my own version" Janssen Mendoza

  1. The simpler, the better.

It doesn't have to involve so many props. There's beauty in being minimalist, so choose your props wisely, Candy Girls! Your props should complement you rather than upstaging you.

  1. Choose a concept that means something to you.

Janssen posted this picture to prove a point that she could pursue her love for makeup while excelling in academics. 

"I'm a full scholar and a candidate for honors. I just want to prove to others that I can do both." –Janssen Mendoza
