St. Petersburg's Shannon Ray is a finalist in Allure's Beauty Blogger Awards!

Get rid of that dreaded "makeup 'stache."


I seriously love Judge Mathis.


I avoid actual work like the plague.

Those are words from the keys of St. Petersburg's Shannon Ray, a 31-year-old beauty and trash talk blogger who is currently a finalist in Allure's Beauty Blogger Awards. Shannon, who runs Gloss and Dirt, was one of 15 bloggers picked from hundreds to compete for the title of Allure's 2012 Beauty Blogger of the Year.

Shannon is doing blog "challenges" (sounds scary) over the next few weeks, and you can vote for her each time on her blog or here. When you vote, you're entered to win prizes including diamond earrings, Rebecca Minkoff bags, a Nook, or the grand prize of a spa trip to Miami and $1,000 of Revlon products.

Read Shannon's whole bio here. And be sure to vote and visit her blog, where you'll get lots of good makeup tips and Tori Spelling analysis, plus delightful photos of her dog in full-on derp mode. You can't lose.

Good luck, Shannon!
