Contestant: Brittney

You need to look no further than your Instagram explore feed to see a swagged out look that went viral! Brittney chose the hashtag #MermaidSwag to describe her aquatic theme. Whether or not she #nailedit remains to be seen, but we can’t fault her for tipping the scales a bit!

Shoes: Sarto by Franco Sarto

Contestant: Diana

Over here, we live for a good natural hair, real woman moment! Using the hashtag #CurvyMelaninQueen, Diana created a look that women across all cultures can relate to. In an age where we are demanding that everyone be included no matter their skin color, hair type, body type, or age, this look was simply perfect!

Shoes: Valentina Rangoni 

Contestant: Jayson

#MiGente isn’t just a song by Beyoncé, it’s also the hashtag Jayson wanted to go viral. He presented his take on Latin woman flair with a sleek ponytail, dark, sultry eyes, and glittery lips. The question remains though, did he nail it? You tell us!

Outfit Details:

Jacket: Niteline from Orlando Vintage

Jeans: Kut from the Cloth

Contestant: Kendra

How does one go viral under the hashtag #CherryBomb? Kendra executed… sort of. Apart from the cherry drop earrings, red ring pop, nails, and snake print pants, it’s truly hard to tell whether or not Kendra brought this theme to life. In any event, the makeup look was clean and would be perfect for a night out with friends.

Outfit Details: 

Pants: Imaginative Fashion 

Shoes: Mink 

Contestant: Lucy

Lucy Garland chose the hashtag #GoHard for this challenge. She remained true to her signature makeup style of thin, dark brows and exaggerated eye shadow. The bantu knots were an unexpected take on this hashtag that we’re truly unsure of its meaning. Overall, she went all out and perhaps that’s why this look should go viral. Thoughts?

Outfit Details: 

Shoes: Fergie Footwear

Contestant: Oz

#WhoisShe? That’s the question we want answered with Oz’s final look! For this challenge, Oz created a look to inspire girls who are struggling with self identity and love. The funky makeup and edgy attire scream that this is a girl who is comfortable in who she is, but that’s just one biased writer’s view. What do you think?

Skirt: Lip Service from Orlando Vintage

Shoes: Valentina Rangoni

Contestant: Ricardo

If Eve were alive during this Instagram Age, she would go viral for more reasons than one. Ricardo’s hashtag was #TakeABite and, well, he encapsulated it, right? It depends on what you’re taking a bite of.

Outfit Details: 

Jumpsuit: Barbara Barbara from Orlando Vintage

Contestant: Ronaldo

Who told you that you can’t walk out the house in this get up and completely rock it?! Ronaldo’s go viral hashtag was #WhoToldYouSo. This look was bold, daring, and a punch in the face for anyone who feels like beauty should be conventional.

Outfit Details: 

Dress and Skirt: Imaginative Fashion

Shoes: Carlos Shoes 

Contestant: Samson

While the verdict is still out about Samson’s sweetness, his hashtag #BeSweet was a load of sugar! This playful look is ready for the Spring and Summer festivals ahead of us, if nothing else. Who else has a sweet tooth looking at this look?!

Dress: When Freddie Met Lilly from Regard Style House

Shoes: Carlos Shoes 

Contestant: Tyren

Lady Liperty?! When we think #QueensofMakeup, Tyren’s hashtag, we’re not sure if the Statue of Liberty is the first thing that comes to mind. In any event, Tyren gets an A for effort, and well, just watch the episode to see how the judges graded his execution. He might go viral, but not for the right reasons. We’ll see.

    Love Oz…but she should have been eliminated. Every week she is consistently mediocre.
