Tyra Mail! "You never know when you'll get the next call. A top model is prepared for all. Love, Tyra." No one has a hot clue what it means. Late at night, the girls hop into their limo and head to...Wal-Mart. Oh, phew. Looks like they're finally bringing the girls back down to earth after that Badgley Mischka anomaly. They head to the makeup aisle, where they meet Brent Poer and Molly Stern, makeup artist extraordinaire, of Cover Girl. Brent says that a top model has to be ready for a casting at a moment's notice, and today they'll be competing in a makeup challenge as well as participating in a casting. Claire interviews that she loves makeup, and the competitive spirit in her wanted to win no matter what. Brent tells the girls that Wal-Mart and Cover Girl are now offering an enhanced shopping experience -- so you can have your choice of hundreds and thousands of cakey, crap products on the cheap! -- and that the winner of this cycle will have her face on a display, next to the numbers "$6.68." That sounds about right. The girls get five minutes to shop the giant makeup wall and create a fresh, clean, natural look. There are three products they have to incorporate. Some TruBlastPlumpLast something something.
The challenge begins! Lauren, as you might imagine, is not so skilled with the makeup. Marvita tells us that the girls crowded around the mirror like vultures, and were bumping her every which way. Allison interviews that she might sound like a horrible person for saying this, but that she's doing a lot better than most of the other girls, Fatima included. That doesn't sound horrible so much as incorrect. But enjoy that baby carrot you'll be having for dinner. For her part, Fatima thinks she's doing an awesome job. I would trust Fatima with nothing beauty-related, since she was obviously complicit in whatever the hell happened to her hair to make it look that way.
