The girls get more Tyra mail, which says that the girls have had good and bad critiques, so makeup will make the difference. Be ready in the morning. Fast forward, and the girls are waking up. They head to the salon and Jay welcomes them. When they are asked what Haut Couture is, nobody seems to know. Apparently, Haut Couture is high fashion runway makeup. It’s not supposed to look common, and their challenge this week will be to give themselves a Haut Couture look. There are five stations, and each girl will get 45 seconds at a station. Each station has something different – foundation, blush, mascara, accessories, and lipstick. They will be judged on creativity and originality. The winner and two friends will get a custom-made item from a designer.
Michelle is worried about her skin and is freaking out over some of the new spots. Her plan was to watch the other girls, but she is first. Off they go as everyone rushes around. Kahlen is having problems and Tiffany is visibly frustrated. Michelle thinks she did well, but says the other girls were doing awesome themselves.
Jay comes to judge when it’s over. Rebecca is told she looks like a mall girl, and Brittany looks too “fashiony.” Tiffany is told she looks like a toasted Miss Piggy on crack. Can’t say I ever heard that one! Noelle over-blued herself, and Lluvy looks like Daisy Duke. Michelle is looking a bit “fright night” and she gets pretty frustrated. Jay tells Naima that she looks great and she says she was inspired by Swan Lake. She looks like a little Harajuku girl to me. So Naima picks Lluvy and Christine to share her reward.
The other girls head home, and Michelle says the spots are spreading. The winning girls get to meet Lauren Schrer(?). They flashed the name so fast I didn’t get it! Apparently, she makes purses, and each girl will get to design their own. Christina is psyched since no other girl will ever have what they make.
Noelle is on the phone with her mom and she tells her about Michelle and the spots. Her mom tells her there is a new strain of flesh eating bacteria going around, and it can’t be cured by antibiotics. Noelle takes this info and goes to Tiffany, who starts flipping out. Noelle then goes around and tells every one of the other girls about the flesh eating bacteria, adding that it kills. Lluvy is scared since she shared makeup with Michelle. Rebecca talks to her dad on the phone, who confirms that there is a bad case of flesh eating bacteria around, and Tatiana’s mom says the same thing. This rumor is now flowing in the house, and all the girls are trying to sanitize. At this point, Michelle is sleeping and everyone is scared. Tiffany talks to her grandma about it all, who tells Tiffany and the other girls that they need to get a life and read a book or something. Ha!
Tyra mail tells the girls that eleven are left, but be ready to show your true colors in the morning. Everyone arrives at the shoot and Jay welcomes them in. He tells them that they learned about makeup, and it’s time to give them all a mustache. Well, a milk mustache! Everyone is excited as Jay tells them that not only are they doing the Got Milk? Campaign, but they will each be transformed into a different ethnicity. This sounds like fun! The girl’s job will be to take on the new persona of the ethnicity that they are for the shoot.
The girls are all getting ready, and Jay tells them that they can’t make the shoot ultra easy for them, so they will be posing with someone. Out comes a little boy, and they are told that they will have to pose with a 3-year-old in their arms. Noelle says that it will make the shoot harder, and Rebecca feels bad for Michelle since she has “splotches” on her face, and she wouldn’t want her kids near that. I guess I agree. The makeup artist tells Michelle to talk to Jay, since he’s not sure what to do. Jay doesn’t really play around, and sends Michelle to the doctor. Off she goes!
Keenyah is going first, and she is a Korean women. She says it’s a challenge, but she is up to it. Naima is Scandinavian. Oh, just like Rose Nyland on Golden Girls. Okay, I’m giving out too much info! Anyway, Naima looks good, and she thinks it’s mind blowing that she can become a white woman. Lluvy is the next to go, and she is just happy that this time she is a person and not a fish. She’s supposed to be Swedish, and the photographer says she was too distracted by the child. Tiffany is Native American and does a pretty good job, while Rebecca says that Tiffany and Noelle have a little advantage since they are used to holding their kids. But Noelle says it’s hard for her to have a connection with the kid as she does her shoot, since he reminds her of her own child.
Michelle is now at the doctor, who tells her that she has impetigo. Basically, it will go away fast, and it’s caused by bacteria. It’s a little contagious, so she has to watch herself.
Back at the shoot, Brittany is an African-American woman. Jay says that it’s Brittany’s best shoot to date, and although it looks good, I liked her shot better last week. Michelle gets back and tells the other girls she is okay. Tatiana tells the camera that maybe the girls made it out to be something big when it really wasn’t. Maybe?
Speaking of Tatiana, she is up next, as a bi-racial woman. She admits that it was tough with the kid as children aren’t her thing. Christina is East Indian, and says she has little arms, so holding the kid was rough. Michelle finds out she will have to hold a doll since she is still contagious. Rebecca is a little Italian woman, and has problems with holding the child up. Kahlen is Hawaiian, and Jay tells her that she is struggling. Michelle goes last and she is a woman from Iceland. Jay says that the doll doesn’t respond, and Michelle is going to have to work it. You go, girl!<--Previous 1 2 3 Next-->
